Wicked Yankee Girl
Skate America Short Dance
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 [url]http://icemusings.blogspot.com/2011/10/skate-america-short-dance.html[/url]. Can't wait to see these Latin dances!
Any chance anyone's managed to find a live feed other than ice network?
Rooting for the divas with Kwanford
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
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
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.

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.
