They were good. Can they catch W/P?
good score for Maia and Alex. I'm so happy for them
Good job for the Shibs!
Incredible Maia & Alex!! Such a strong showing for their very first worlds...unbelievable.
W/P should be ahead of S/S.
Shibs were great but looked a bit juniorish, W/P should have had higher pcs
S/S were ahead on both TES and PCS. Very odd indeed..especially given their trouble with the twizzles.
I agree Jan, they were good but not that much better then at 4CC. Yet their score jumped! I think someone is getting bonus marks because they got screwed out of a medal at last years Jr Worlds. Trying to make sure they are in the final group for the free.
Why don't Crone/Poirier use the original version of Fallin'? That soupy cover is just strange and not very good (the singer even flubs the low note in the song). If the original's tempo isn't right, that's easy to adjust with audio software without any noticeable change otherwise. But it was very very clever how the set patterns in the golden waltz fit the lyrics and phrasing of Fallin'. Although their skating didn't quite live up to that.
Freaking Russian stream doing a split screen during the Shibutanis skate! I love Virtue/Moir but I don't want to hear them interviewed while I'm watching another team. Rude!
Carron/Jones' Jacques Brel song is ridiculously charming, and the tempo increase in the end makes for a really rousing program. If only they could live up to it just a touch more.
It will be interesting to see how they mark the hometown russians!!!! Will one of them be put in medal contention?
