    You can always count on the russians to bring on the bad costumes...
    Kristina, what are you wearing?

    Yay!! The main event!!

    T/B - that was really poorly executed. I kinda like the different music, though.

    Also, I'm curious how much of this score is due to GOEs and base value. Outside the lifts, they don't deserve that high GOEs. And I'll agree that their PCS should be higher than the other teams that skated so far - they were definitely better.

    Alexandra has a ton of dance training and is a very balletic skater - should she not be allowed to utilize her strengths simply because Tessa Virtue has also taken ballet?

    It was an absolutely gorgeous program, stunning lifts, beautiful carriage, and a nice relationship between the two of them. They need to look like Seniors this year and took on a mature program. Give them a chance to develop people - jeez.

    Didn't care for G/B. The last half/third in particular kinda fell apart.

    Portions of G/B's program are a mess. It will be interesting to see how it develops over the season.

    They should be well behind P/I.

    Kristina Gorshkova and Vitali Butikov RUS (ISU Ranked 17th)
    Coach: Elena Tchaikovskaia, Ksenia Rumiantseva
    Choreographer: Elena Tchaikovskaia
    FD Cha Cha by Santa Esmeralda; Manana de Carneval by Luis Miguel
    Third at Finlandia in the free dance with a score of 75.85. Although well skated, this dance was a program that would have been embarassing in 1980 for being too old fashioned. It is further hampered by really bad music, and the fact that the cha cha does not translate particularly well to the ice. Also their costumes were quite bizarre.
    Short Dance Results
    5 Kristina GORSHKOVA / Vitali BUTIKOV RUS 51.56 27.87 23.69 6.07 5.71 5.96 5.96 5.89 0.00 #6

    Some of the ugliest costumes so far this year.
    She is pooping a fabric tailout of the butt ot
    on the skirt
    their are gratuitous animal skin prints and
    random eyes and lots of gold stuff.
    strange oversize ruffle down one of his arms

    One 2 chacha cha
    twizzles good speed down the ice & 3 sets
    this is better than at Nebelhorn

    rotational lift
    pair lunge
    cha cha pose into spin
    she lies back with an arm out
    haircutter
    then reverse
    little chacha toe steps
    How Sladky & Sladky this is for the
    now slow rhumba stuff
    Besame mucho
    lift under his legs in a spread eagle
    the f/w here is a bit weak
    and running steps with no edges
    pretty standard curve lift down low
    another music change
    they are not skating that close
    lift
    cha cha again
    and they end in a roll out wrap lift
    probably will score below P/I.

    No. She shouldn't be allowed to look like Tessa Virtue. Glad we have that settled.

    Arnold/Trojek: way more expressive than the first team, great chemistry between them; they are only a team for the second season, and without previous high profile partnerships and buzz. Also some really good technical stuff. maybe it was a little slow, but otherwise a really, really solid debut. Marks a little low?

    Germans: that was a hot mess; maybe she is nervous, and that has caused her upper body to be so stiff? they did not look like a team, and definitely didn't interpret the music.
