    I'll be doing a live play by play at http://icemusings.blogspot.com/2011/...ree-dance.html for anyone without a live feed. Can the Shibutanis close the gap and catch Bobrova and Soloviev?

    Unlikely, unless B&S fall on the twizzles again, something that they (and others) have done before.

    GOOOOOOOOOOO EMILY & TODD!!!!!

    When I first heard you both were skating to Led Zeppelin I had to laugh b/c all last week I was re-watching Todd&Jane's "Led Zeppelin Medley" over & over & over ad infinitum on IN's on-demand from the 2010 US Nationals, and the whole time I kept imagining Emily skating it in a red or gold dress, no lie. Thus you can imagine my joy when I found out you guys are skating to Led Zeppelin! YESSSSSSS!

    What a difference packaging makes ~ Todd & Emily look stunning! Todd's wearing the outfit he wore for his "Led Zeppelin Medley" at 2010 US Nationals, and Emily looks F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S in that gold dress.

    They truly look like a *pair* now ~ perfect height difference between the two ~ and their ginger/red hair looks gorgeous!

    As regards Lichtman & Copely, I'm not into this Austin Powers routine, don't like the bright pink neon go-go outfit she's wearing, cute though, something good for juniors.

    My feed's choppy, but of what I see, L/C don't yet have the charisma and ability to sell a fun concept. And her dress looks cheaply made.

    Emily Samuelson is lovely, her lines and positions are great - but Todd looks clumsy next to her, and they don't look ready; no surprise considering they partnered less than three months ago and have been practicing the programs for about a month. Her dress is gorgeous.

    ETA: for the streamless - this one works for me: http://news.sportbox.ru/Vidy_sporta/...naya-programma. Found it in time for S/G.

    I don't know..I'm on IN.


    2 Emily SAMUELSON / Todd GILLES USA

    They are currently coached by Netchaeva & Tchesnitchenko
    FD Stairway to Heaven, choreographed by Christopher Dean

    Emily is in the gold dress shown in the practice photos. It looks a lot like Tessa's World FD dress. Todd is in the black V neck jumpsuit, so often used in ice dance for the men.
    Into position
    interesting set up poses and skating.
    pair spin ok
    diagonal step
    lots of Emily lying back poses in this
    complex lift with a leg kick up in time to high point of music
    circular step-edges not there yet
    lift rotational.
    todd is into in shaking his booty
    twizzles 3 sets. not bad unison
    that lift emily & evan used to do with him in a cantilever spread and her legs clasped around his waist
    to end
    much better than the SD
    This is recognizably Chris Dean choreo but doesn't remind me of any particular dance he and Jayne or the Duchesnays did.

    63.10, but 3 deductions for overlong lifts

    I have 3 sites that won't stream. CCTV5 is showing something else.

    Which one works for you?
