    I don't know what's worse, Tomas' performance or that truly horrible version of Carmina Burana.

    Mroz got the second highest PCS, my eyes can't roll back far enough. Thankfully not higher than Machida, but still. Yes, he's skating in the second group and he attempted a quad lutz, but please, it doesn't make the rest of his so-so skating any more so.

    Verner just plain gave up. Even beyond the mistakes, he really let the effort go in so much of that skate. Disturbing lack of commitment. I liked his entrance to his sit spin, though.

    No, all the falls could be seen coming, each one the skater's error. Chan's SC fall before the 3Lz was freaky.

    Mroz's toepick didn't appear to leave the ice until 3/4 of the way into the rotation. In my mind, that means he needs to land completely backwards in order for it to be a real Quad Lutz. I perhaps should not make a sweeping declaration without seeing a better view, but I definitely remain suspicious of this "Quad".

    Ah, we'll I have to admit I was multitasking, so they kind of looking freaky looking to me.

    They don't care about prerotation unless it's a toe loop. Adelina got away with her full rev prerotated triple loop.

    I don't whom I would put in last place, Verner or Contesti? No, I think Verner.

    Samuel Contesti (ITA)

    Music: Hungarian March by Hector Berlioz
    La Gazza Ladra (The Thieving Magpie) by Gioacchino Rossini
    1812 Ouverture by Petr I. Tchaikovski

    3Lz+3T - a hop on landing
    3A - stepout
    3F<< - landed facing forwards
    FSSp
    SlSt
    CCSp
    CCoSp - a bit late to the music

    I like Contesti normally, but this was a mess. And miming a conductor in a routine set to classical music is just lazy and clichéd choreography.

    Contesti's skating is pathetic. His spins are pre-novice level.

    3Lz+3T - nice

    Wow. Taka! That was amazing. =)

    question: What's that pointing thing that he does in the middle of his program? I noticed it on one of his signs too.

    ETA: It think he saw that he didn't need the quad, so he decided to do the 3F instead. It seem sort of last-minute.
