    Skaters on the ice warming up.

    This Contesti from Italy I'm wondering if he's the one that wore overalls last year, kinda a Farmer John look going on, lol. :D Anyhow, I recall some saying he looks anorexic now, I don't think so, just a different outfit that makes him look slim compared to those crazy overalls he wore last year. (:^) Anyhow, today he's wearing a Mexican Cha Cha type of costume imho, big sparkly starburst on the back of his black form-fitting vest type of jacket, etc.

    1 minute remaining in warmup!

    Chen of China is such a beautiful skater with a natural feel for music that it almost makes me cry the fall on two jumps and fallouts on the 3A & 3L, but gorgeous high 3R, wonderful attitude positions! Really makes me think of John Curry's incomparable program to this piece of music, and am wondering if Chen has watched old tapes of his performance.

    ps. GORGEOUS long spread eagle into 2A/2T!!!!!

    Oh I honestly feel like crying right now. Wu of China opened so promisingly with a HUGE 3A, and another HUGE 3A, but when he fell on the fw halfway through he lost his confidence & it showed thereafter in his shakey landings and also he fell on another triple jump, but the ending spin where he fell I almost burst out in tears for him. *so sad*

    Such potential, heartbreaking, especially in his home country where the audience is sooooo appreciative of their skaters, full house...

    Liebers of Germany did okay, some shakey landings on jumps, might've fallen once (can't recall), but I just can't get over how much I dislike the college vest with tie some skaters seemed to have favoured throughout the GP thus far, like they're going to math class. He did spark up at the end there, looking the judges dead in the eyes, and then did a few karate chop like moves before finishing.

    OMG, I absolutely Loooooove this piece by Contesti of Italy!!!! He reminds me of bird of prey in the Andes (music was panpipes from the andes). He's a natural when it comes to the 3A jumps! Loved the 3A/2T/2T combo. and also the opening 3A! Only fault was the both hands down on 3L jump, otherwise GORGEOUS program, made me want to get up and dance. Brought back splendid memories of my time serving as a PCV in Paraguay, South America.

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SAMUEL CONTESTI!!!!!!!!!

    Guan of China put all his heart & soul into this beautiful Turandot music (btw love love love this music, always makes me wanna cry, and think of Sarah Hughes when she skated to this piece in her lovely dark blue dress reminiscent of Dorothy Hamill).

    Guan opened with a gutsy quad (full rotations but then fell), and he really came alive during the 2nd part, GORGEOUS 2A/2A combo.

    Machida of Japan, two falls (one in the opening & other halfway through on 3A) and popped a 3L jump, otherwise his jumps were fine & splendid, and he did do a 3/2/2 combo. near the end (shakey on th ending but done). Nice job, nice job!
