Ok MAchilda is really good, I like him!
Sorry not really concentrating on Brandon's performance because the entire time I was trying to figure out whom used that piece of music at the very beginning, then it hit me! 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist in Ladies All-Around in Gymnastics Lilia Podkopayeva, that music is her signature piece, the floor routine outstanding!!!!
Okay, back to Brandon, IIRC he fell out of his 3A jump, but I think the rest of the jumps were shaky, but done...
Voronoz of Russia had a shakey landing on his opening 4S, huge 3A!, and equally good 3R. But that's all I recall, I wasn't very impressed with anything but his jumps.
He goes into 2nd behind Brandon Mroz by the slimmest of margins.
Wow Mroz did a 4-3 in sp! !!!!
He is boring though...
OMG, this should easily go into 1 place! LOOOOOOOOOOVE this Soul Man Medley routine by Kozuka, perfect vehicle for him, fully into the character, cool man cool! *wears sunglasses* (:^)
Gorgeous opening 4/3 combo., great dance steps, everything GORGEOUS!!!!!
And he easily pulls away from the competition! :sleek:
I didn't care very much for Kozuka's program from an artistic standpoint (and found his performance a bit underwhelming), but clearly he deserves to be in 1st so far after that one.
Kozuka did a 4-3???!!
I m behind in the feed, watching Voronov now.
Edit: and he is not good, Morozov did him no favors with this look and program.

I liked Samuel Contesti's program better when Ryan Bradley did it. Decent 4T-3T, though.
Gorgeous opening 4?/3 combo. by Contesti, but then he fell apart after that, came down on two feet on the 3A, doubled a planned triple, fell out of donut spin, etc.
60.6 for Contesti. Ouch, but deserved.
Guys neither Kozuka nor Contesti did a 4-3, they did a 3lz-3t, dont excite me falsely!
So Kozuka has less ss skills than Chan and gets 77 for this...
OMG, I don't know what to say, this is almost as exciting as seeing Zhenya last year at COR via IN. Brian easily dominates, everything PERFECT, gorgeous 4T/3T, shakey landing on the 3A, but gorgeous comeback with the 3L jump!!!!!
It's like watching the movie "Once Upon A Time in America". This is my favorite program of ANY man this season. Oh how I wish he had used this last year during the Olympic Season (or better yet, Zhenya).
I LOVE , LOVE , LOVE THIS PIECE!!!!! *shaking, lol*
seniorita, thanks for the clarification, they go by so fast I wasn't sure. *blush*
