I like Yasmin and the fact that she pays attention to the details of the music at 14. I hope she continues to improve.
Yasmin's jump technique is odd.
Joelle was so amazing! I thought i was looking at Michelle when she went on the ice!
Amazing performance from her! Is she Filipina? She looks Filipina rather than from Azerbaijan! Elaine Zayak coached her! Amazing!
GOOOOOOOOOOO MORGAN BELL!!!!
102.56 for Yasmin, for a total of 152.47 and a great debut for Yasmin.
Morgan Bell, complete newbie, now.
She's quite pretty. Good first jump (right as the announcer commented on a not so good practice.) Then a fall.
Okay, right off the bat, I really dislike Morgan's hunched over posture.
Like Morgan's music (the beginning)...well I like most of cirque's music. Not a good day though.

One of my pet peeves as when I see gorgeous line on a split jump, that's worth more to me than any triple lutz combo.
Anyway...I'll have to remember this young lady for the future and I hope she doesn't have too bad of a visit from the growth spurt monster.
Ugh, her timing is really off on her jumps, quite a few popped single jumps.
Morgan Bell - 9th after SP (national debut)
Very interesting music, with eerie/light choral tones at the beginning.
2axel (wow, deep knees on takeoff and landing - nice to see!)
3toe (hard fall)
layback into bielmann
BEAUTIFUL spread eagle
2axel/1toe (swinging landing on axel, pitching forward)
catch-foot spiral into ina bauer into spiral (goes well with the music)
footwork (to percussive, rhythmic beats) - music is nice but her footwork seems slow and tired
spread eagle into 1sal
I love her spread eagles - she keeps her body perfectly straight in line which is hard to do! Presentation needs quite a bit of work though.
Awww she seems so disappointed at the final pose... Great debut, Morgan!
Total: 119.57 - Currently 10th

That costume is doing no favors to Morgan's figure.
Layfan, I agree with you - Yasmin is great! Such musicality! Lot's of technical goods. I particularly love the use of her neck, shoulders, arms down to fingers. Wow. Can't wait to see how she develops over time. For now, I totally enjoyed her short and long, and really hope she did too!
