    Meryl and Charlie finished behind their music. It was not as sharp a performance as Vancouver. V/M were sharper, technically, than in Vancouver, if not as theatrical.

    Just found out that V/M changed part of their OD only hours before the competition.

    How amazing is that they were able to pull it off without even a skate through...

    The USA is dangerously close to losing 3 spots. in dance. Davis and White will place at least second, but Samuelson and Bates NEED to finish 11th or higher. This might be a nailbiter..

    These two are pretty much as good as ice dancers get. Too bad, I loved that part when she twisted in the air. So done with no practice ever done on ice... to get a world record. Impressive seems like an understatement.

    It is a matter of taste. I like more V/M flamenco is a very sophisticated and difficult dance, D/W is difficult, but more commercial.

    That was pretty blissful. V/M & D/W cannot be touched . Both richly deserve to be where they are.

    The only complaint I have is that I think S/B were somewhat undermarked.

    My sister and I are in agreement that one of the best moves in ice dance is Tessa placing her hand on Scott's thigh in their OD. ..just sayin'...

    Edit ; Originally ,I described the move as s---y.Didn't know it wasn't allowed.

    When Tanith and Ben announced they were not going to Worlds, I asked if anyone else was concerned about the US losing one of their dance spots. Everyone seemed to think it was automatic that the top 2 US teams would get 13. I was worried the judges have not been that impressed with S&B and wouldn't give them high marks. This is way too close for me. S&B were 10th after the compulsory and are now 11th. They can't drop any more.

    Wow. Just ... holy moly. That said, what is up with all the "behind the grapevine" talk this year? It's getting seriously annoying. Can all the judges and TCs get together and be consistent in deeming things illegal or not (Joubert anyone?).

    I have faith in S/B. They certainly have the potential to move up if they skate well. D/W and V/M are locks for the top 2; S/B just need to maintain their placing, which they are more than capable of.

    Canada, USA and Italy on track to get 3 spots next year! Good luck to all the dancers for the FD!

    Can V/M and D/W ever top their programmes? I really hope both teams stay in for the next quad and push each other artistically and technically. It just won't be the same of either of them retire imo ....

    It would be a tragedy if either team retired.

    Don't you look so forward to them trying? These teams have made dance go from being my least favorite discipline to being my favorite. Can't wait to see D&W at SoI next month.

    Watching replays one day behind... D/W and V/M not fiery? For me that was smouldering enough. I always find them inspiring, and after olympics this wasn't a self-evident outcome (as we saw with the poor tired Yu-na today).

    The Czech pair danced to Finnish folk music! I don't know anyone to have done that after Rahkamo/Kokko, so they are my new favourites of course.

    Why were they so low after the OD? Did they not get the levels? The performance looked like one of the best for them all year and considering most of the other team's mistakes on the twizzles I was shocked they were so low.

    Do you imagine D/W performing V/M flamenco routine I don't, especially Charlie with his childish face would be funny, but I imagine V/M performing bollywood routine quite well
