    If I can just prop my eyelids open with toothpicks to stay awake.

    I'll be doing a live play by play of this event as well over at http://icemusings.blogspot.com/2011/...ort-dance.html. Can't wait to see these Latin dances!

    Any chance anyone's managed to find a live feed other than ice network?

    C/L USA are a gorgeous couple. She manages to look endlessly rapturous in the first section. Sure reminds me of Meryl. Did not find her as convincing in the vigorous second section.

    I liked H/D as well. His costume is hot in a 70's kind of way. She needs better hair and costuming.

    LOVE the Lithuanians. Oops... I mean, the part-Lithuanian couple skating for Lithuania. She's Jessica Simpson on ice. Not that I like JS but the resemblance is striking from afar. More importantly she's a fabulous dancer.

    Madison Hubbell & Zachary Donohue USA
    Mambo
    Rhumba
    Samba
    Madison has a silver spotted costume with multicolored ribbon s sewed to one side of the skirt. The neck is like a turtle neck. The back is completely illusion. It's really kind of awful. He's in a longsleeved very v neck black onesie
    Latin posing
    circular step could be closer together
    2nd rhumba sequence some difficulty
    2nd twizzle set out of synch a bit
    Lift with her standing on his foot
    back flips over him to end.

    Samba: Tequila by The Champs
    another black v neck onesie on Ian
    black and white dress on Isabella (white/silver rag skirt, black top)
    miming love
    not touching step nice to slow rhumba spacing drifting
    spread eagle by him her body parallel to ice in lift
    rhumba sequence
    into samba to Tequila
    twizzles and Ian fell on the first set!
    KnC, she's comforting him

    Isabella Tobias & Deividas Stagniunas LTU
    Shakira Medley

    opening is pleasing the crowd to hips don't lie
    twizzles, 2nd set not good ice coverage
    rotational lift with her head down and back foot up
    rhumba sequence
    this is good music for it
    now into different song

    Alexandra Paul & Mitchell Islam CAN
    2046 Main Theme (Rhumba Version)
    The Havana Slido by Jon Cohen
    dark purple diagonal cut skirt. lots of spanglies on one side of the top. Another v neck black onesie with sparklies
    She falls down on opening moves. She doesn't recover quickly.
    lift he's a little shaky on one foot.
    rhumba sequence ok.
    They exit from it in an unattractive way that might be another screw up.
    The twizzles are nice and close together. Circular step. He trips. Then she falls again. They do not get back together quickly . Sort of a lop sided swing to end.
    They will want to forget this.

    She fell twice and he tripped once. See Doris' explanations above.
