    The big lifts are Castelli and Schnapir's money elements. Pieces of cake. But not enough of them to make up for the falls.

    Finally watching it, although I missed the Canadian pair. Seems I didn't miss much though. I thought Castelli and Shnapir were decent.

    American pair started out weak (fall on side by side jump by him & fall on the throw triple jump by her), but ended very very very strong! Also, I like their music, choreography, packaging,et al.

    Still, the whole time I kept imagining him skating with Caitlin Yankowas, whom I think would be a perfect fit with him, both tall & long-limbed.

    3LoTh - she 2foots
    PCoSp
    Li

    I think if she gained a little meat on her bones she would be better able to land the side by side jumps instead of singling them (also land the throw jumps stronger), but one can definitely tell she's from the Russian School of Pairs Skating -- impeccable line, posture, hands, etc.

    Good job.

    I&M... this couple got screwed by their costume designer. The program isn't that bad but the way they look is first and foremost extremely odd. She singled or doubled all her sbs's and two footed a landing... an off night.

    I/M's lifts are fantastic. But they can't always mess up their jumps and throws.

    Kavaguti/Smirnov

    Music: Clair de Lune by Claude Debussy

    3T
    3FTw - not the highest as usual, but clean enough
    3STh
    BiDs
    FCCoSp - good unison
    ChSp
    2A+2A+SEQ - she stepouts on the first, but completes sequence
    3LoTh
    Li
    Li
    Li - diff variation
    PCoSp

    Solid performance, should be enough for a medal - but which color?

    K&S - exquisite program. Some problems on her part but not huge ones. She doubled a jump... ETA: oh maybe I'm misremembering and it was just that stepout.

    The costumes are very fitting for A Chorus Line.

    There's always such a sadness about this pair, especially her, thus I find this music perfect for them, as well as the choreography, packaging, etc.

    She tries soooo hard, especially after finishing a devastating 4th at the Olympics (first time Russian Pairs didn't medal, similar to how American Ladies finished 4th as well at the Olympics, first time in history an American Lady did not stand on the Olympic Podium).

    Anyhow, I can't help but feel sorry for his pair. :(
