    Jonathan Cassar is definitely a good reason to attend Detroit.

    If you believe that Dance is part of Singles competition, he is one of the few to see how it is done. Every step he takes demonstrates musicality - not just with his reknowned spread eagels, but the entire flow of his presentation which negates all others who must oversell their programs.

    It would indeed be great to hear about your experiences! And take lots of pictures, if you're a camera buff! We'd love to see them.

    Just a few quick notes from tonight:

    Jonathan Cassar was AMAZING in the short program today! He skated to a tango medley that included the Tango de Roxanne. Spread eagle and footwork were out of this world. The audience gave a partial standing ovation and went wild! He gladly signed autographs for fans afterwards and was a class act. Armin went for the quad and fell. He also popped his 3a, but did a nice 3/3 combination which put him in the lead a couple of points ahead of Cassar. Keegan Messing also popped his axel and then totally missed the quad, it looked like he caught his toepick and didn't even hit a single. He pulled out a 3/2 combination only and seemed very upset. Hopefully he will come back strong in the free!!!

    Becky Bereswill's lp was graceful and beautiful. Her spirals are amazing and her layback is the best in the competition. She unfortunately popped a few jumps.

    Alexe Gilles came through strong tonight. Her lutz was missing, but she had some nice triples and presented her program well.

    Nice outing for Nina Jiang here! Nice to see her doing 3f and 3lz. Her win here and strong total score should put her in contention for a JGP assignment. I'm very pleased to see her skating so well! Also what happened to Amanda Dobbs? Is she injured again, the WD is concerning :/

    Yeah, I'm really excited for her! First time landing 3F and 3Z in competition, isn't it? I can't wait to see a video.

    I'm hoping someone has reports from senior ladies..I thought for sure Charbonneau was in medal contention, but am happy for Grenier moving up to 2nd. I am also pleased Gilles had a great performance.
