    Now that should be put in 1st place!

    Seriously, Ashley's combines both the beauty and the sport together to make a lovely whole. And I absolutely love the 3/2 she does with both arms overhead on the 2T (like they do in the Bolshoi Ballet; reminiscent of Mao Asada's outstandingly gorgeous 3A/2T she used to do, ahhhh I miss those days).

    Oops, upon replay Ashley slightly two-footed her 3/2. :(

    Ashley Wagner has attitude and attack, and a great choice of music. Also, a nice dress, and Mr. Nicks is always a welcome sight in the K&C - how he has the energy for all this travel at this age, I've no idea. I'm very happy to see Ashley in good form so far this season.

    Watching Agnes is almost as exciting as watching paint dry and her skating is about as fast.

    Mae-Berenice Mitte has potential but obviously has to do a lot of work on the presentation side.

    Elene Gedevanishvilli was right to go back to being a brunette.

    Not bad, very very good in fact, perfect program to fit Elene's style, she's found her niche.

    And that 3/2 was the best in the biz, but did she double her 3S? She makes it look so easy I thought she did.

    Anyhow, good job!

    Nope, she tripled it, yeah!

    ps: she's the tiniest skater in real life; I recall at SA she was the tiniest skater on the ice, but powerful!!!!

    I'm quite glad that Elene G has gotten herself into better shape. She's deservedly leading so far.

    I think the French girl deserved to be ahead of Agnezzzzzzz.

    Akiko's looking hot with 3/3!
    Mao's dress is very different from what we're used to from her!

    Btw, I remain steadfast on what I said about Carolina Kostner and her speed, which I found to be about equal for all the ladies at SA last year. She skated to "Afternoon of a Faun" so mayhap that's why she wasn't so fast, but then again fans tend to blow things out of proportion to the point that it becomes myth, and this goes for ALL the skaters, including Patrick Chan. I saw him skate live at the 2010 Olympics and he isn't all that. Jmho.

    Of course this comes from a huge Evgeni Plushenko Fan, but I try to be fair.

    Yikes, Cynthia. I'd place that in last so far, objectively, but in terms of the rules of the scoring system she'll go ahead of the Japanese girl who is currently in last place.

    Now THIS is the type of program Agnes needs, just like her identical twin sister Cynthia Phaneuf (seriously, I can't tell the difference between the two).

    Too bad though about the fall on that huge 3L, the doubled 3R, and the low landing on the 2A. Still, what a great program, love it!

    Terrible skate jump wise for Cynthia.

    Elena And Ashley were great. Big improvements in Mae's skating she should have been ahead of Agnes. PC's probably did her in.
