I like this Peter Liebers. Good skating! The best so far.
3Lz, pitched forward, hand down
Liking the music and choreo (somewhat spastic). Probably because it seems like such a breathe of fresh air, compared to the other programs.
Definitely drew the audience in.
I actually like this program, and I think he's been underscored on it in the past. Clean 3F+3T and 3A, a bit forward on the 3F. The judges just don't respond well to synth electric blues. His steps are quite strong, and I can see why the judges could say that there's not much to grasp to in the music and the personality isn't there. But I like his relaxed, solid style and choreography.
Peter Liebers (GER)
Music: Blues Deluxe by Joe Bonamassa
3A - also nice
3Lz - almost hand down
Score: 67.73, new PB, and into 4th
I think Peter was a little underscored. I thought the same thing at Euros.
Boy, that Mischa Ge is really something. What, I'm not sure. An elf?
Memo to Rachael Flatt: if you're going to do cutesy jazz programs, go all the way. This guy was more fun than her in his weird way.
Memo to Ge: don't do any more cutesy jazz programs.
Red, Black and White Checkboard, Neon Chartreuse Scarf, Sparkly Gloves. Okay, what's going on?
Step out on opening 3F (might be under-rotated), 3Lz+3T (3T might be under-rotated as well). Just doesn't get enough height sometimes to complete the jumps. Okay 2A. A playful but a bit too childish of an interpretation to the Broadway-styled music. A lot of frantic arms to the frantic music to disguise his actual frantic-ness.
Eek, I thought Misha Ge would score a little better.
