    Ra preserve us! There's more to Egyptian dance than Walk Like An Egyptian. And almost none of that music was Egyptian. A shallow, ignorant and buffoonish program from Nathalie and Fabian.

    I hope Fabian has a break to get better.

    I didn't know I felt about their program. It felt a little generic...nothing new I guess. I don't know..I like them but it seems they have a rep for making mistake according to the commentators. I wasn't sure since I haven't closely follow them.

    I'm not liking Nathalie's hair.
    Makes her look older and severe. I'm used to seeing her so sweet.

    does anyone else think that D/Ws FD is a bit juniorish in interpretation? generic? nothing special? highlighted with lifts we've seen millions of times....?


    it's beautiful but a bit underwhelming

    This FD plays more to Charlie's strength of understated elegance, control and quickness more than Meryl's. She could have more elegant lines and less ta-da flourishes to her movements. But still, I like what they're going for here: a sophisticated waltz done at breakneck speed with tons of complexities.

    Meryl and Charlie win it (honestly, not a surprise) by 22 points! Pechalat and Bourzat solidly in second, 24 points over Tobias/Stagniunas of Lithuania (wow, they medalled! Great for them!).

    3-6 are literally 1.54 points apart, wow. Could have been any of T/S, Z/G of Germany, Ralph/Hill of Canada, and Hubbell/Donohue of the US. Madison and Zach even got 3rd overall in the FD! Had they not got the 1 pt deduction, they'd have had the bronze.
