    Is it just me or does anyone feel that Yu/Jin took a page from the Alissa Czisny costume design book?

    ALSO WHY IS REQUIEM FOR A DREAM NOT BANNED YET?!?!?!

    Yu/Jin (CHN)

    Music: Requiem for a Dream by Clint Mansell

    3FTw - high!
    2A+2A+SEQ. - fine
    3T - also ok, she lands a bit forward
    PCoSp - a bit slow
    ChSp - nice strength from both
    BoDs
    Li
    3LoTh - nice dance lift entry
    3STh
    FCCoSp - ok unison, until the very end
    Li
    Li

    Nice performance. They did the elements clean, but not a lot of expression. Also her dress looks like Alissa's FS dress from last season.

    Because it's awesome. That 90% of skaters don't realize how to choreograph/skate to it is disappointing.

    Very mechanical skating from Yu/Jin, especially from Xiaoyu. But no obvious mistakes, which is always wonderful.

    Labored and unsteady skate from Paige/Rudi. No me gusta.

    L/S: Lots of little bobbles. Can see it improving, but right now, the two slots for the Canadian pairs are being sent elsewhere. And what was with that death spiral. Lovely entrance, but WTH about the actual element.

    I agree with you. It's such powerful music but no one has been able to skate to it well. P/B is the only version I could somewhat tolerate...

    I'm a sucker for Philip Glass but I don't think this team did well to pick him. Maybe S/S or M/T could pull it off.

    Awful unison skating and a scary lift where he had to check his balance with his free arm but some nice landings by Jessica.
