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.
    That's what I'd like to know! I think it would sound so much better if they used Alicia Keys' version. Or, even, no vocals at all.

    The way the judges have been overmarking the two other American teams I would say it is a possiblity.

    It seems to me I/K will have a bit of "help", but like Serious Business mentioned before, the hometown crowd helps electrify the atmosphere, too.

    I/K are inconsistent. It remains to be seen if they keep it together. I sure hope so

    Help from who? Here's the judging panel and technical officials.

    Officials SD - Ref Coton GBR), TC Leaver (USA), TS Higashino (JPN), TS Ponomarenko (RUS), Panel - Rogers (USA), Hurth (FRA), Laur (EST), Clark (CAN), Kato (JPN), Alpern (ISR), Heidler (AUT) Langton (AUS), Buchanan (GBR)

    There are two Americans, two Brits but only one Russian and an Estonian but based on the name, I doubt s/he's ethnically Russian.

    ETA: Oh and also two Japanese. The panel is very skewed against eastern Europeans. Only two from that side of the continent whereas there are four from western Europe and three from North America so I'm not sure where your sour grapes is coming from.

    Ok so that explains why the Americans are scoring so well with their levels and obtaining new SB.

    Just came home, I was busy and when I looked at the score V/M got, I said:whew, what a relief

    I just watched Paul McIntoh in the Bold sutio with PJ, (first coach of V/M and W/P), very nice surprise.
