    pre-SP, people've already predicted Vanessa Lam would make top 6. I thought she should place above Gao who looks wooden and boring. Oh well, her PCS should move up. She's the best US junior girl at the moment. Too bad she didn't get two assignments to the junior grand prix this season.

    I CANNOT believe Rachael scored the highest PCS!!! She beat both Alissa and Mirai in every category, including performance and choreography! I never thought that could happen, now I gotta see these skates!

    Also listening to the skating order...

    Alissa, Mirai and Rachel are 21, 22, and 23. The final three skaters of the night!

    awesome post, Nadine.....I felt the same way (and was seriously shocked by the feelings!). Great job! I seriously can't wait to watch the ones I missed....but what I saw (despite the weird feed) was awesome.

    what do you think - good position for Alissa? Rachel can handel it a bet, but if Mirai throws down the gauntlet (and if Alissa before her skates well) this will be quite a challenge.

    Gao -25.33

    How unexpected. Flatt gets the highest PCS of the night among the top 7 and the lowest tech. Did she really deserve lower tech than Lam? Her jumps were way bigger. I guess it's that level 1 spin. But I liked her spins better than ever. DARN the COP, always making skaters get into wretched spin positions to gain points.

    I think it will be a great battle!
    I think Rachel will rise to the pressure though.

    I thought Alissa & Mirai were scored too low on PCS compared to Flatt.

    I think Rachael's SP suits her better than the old one, but for me, it's the same boring Rachael. Her footwork was very spastic and distracting and speed/basics aren't any better. She doesn't have the same flow as Alissa & Mirai, which is why I think her PCS should be lower.

    I really enjoyed Vanessa Lam - but I'm not holding my breath on her jumps surviving puberty.

    The edge calls in this competition just make you scratch your head. No edge calls for Gao, Wagner and Lam, but edge calls for their flips for Alissa & Mirai.

    Alissa: "My program wasn't spectacular but it was good." Are you kidding?! Well she's being modest, I guess.

    Yeah Rachael will. She's got one of the toughest jump layouts with 7 triples. Will she do a 3-3 anyone know?

    What Alissa has going for her is that she has a beatiful, absolutely amazing FS. She just needs to skate it well and really perform it and her PCS just might get her into the top 2. And of course her spins.

    What Mirai has going for her is that she's the best all-around skater of the bunch. It seems she got neither the highest PCS or the highest TES tonight but still the highest scores.

    Good luck to all three.

    She's done it better. I don't know I thought Alissa looked too serious through out. But who cares? She needed to concentrate and get the job done.

    She should have said "My program wasn't spectacular but it was very very good"

    Interesting "At the beginning of the season, I had a lot of injuries and I had a lot of frustration about my career in general." -- Rachael about why she had lost some passion for skating at the beginning of the season.
