    Majorov is not at fighting weight. Yet another fist-shaking swing routine. Ugh. I just hate those and they're so flippin' popular in this sport!

    I love those super fast rotations the Swede gets on his jumps, and his 3/3 was the best!

    Lol, he reminds me of the mini-me in Austin Powers, so short & stalky looking.

    Thus far I've been duly impressed with Romain Ponsart of France ~ his toepoint & turnout remind me of the best in the biz (aka John Curry & Emanuel Sandhu) ~ he must have a great balletic background. Now I'm truly excited for France after Brian Joubert leaves, they'll have the wonderful talented Romain to take over, he just needs to land those jumps (easier said than done I know, but his quad was gorgeous).

    And Kev, as always, was a sincere delight (btw the colorful banner of his right by the ice is SUPERB, one cannot miss it, lol). Kev's problem is that he needs to fully rotate his jumps, as he is prone to UR and downgrades. But I'm just happy he landed his 3A!

    Mini-me? Ouch. This is the kind of music and absurd character so easy to emulate and project, which wouldn't win respect and big marks. To fail in portarying Austin Powers is a discouraging failure.

    Oops no it wasnt, that was a listing pre-event on the ISU site, forgot to adjust it. Thanks for catching that!

    Florent Amodio (FRA)

    Music: Summertime by George Gershwin
    Jumpin Jack by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

    3A - good
    3Lz+3T - holds onto landing
    3F - ok, probably "e"
    FCSp
    CCoSp
    CiSt - good attack
    CSSp - screws up entrance, will it be invalidated?

    Whatever else you want to say about Florent, he has the requisite ego.

    Don't like Amodio's program at all, especially the footwork section, way too busy on the upper body/arms. Very distracting actually.

    Too bad Amodio messed up on the entrance to the sitspin, but what I like about his skating is he makes the jumps looks easy, they come out of nowhere, swoosh! The very best make it look easy (ala Evgeni Plushenko).

    Amodio was so into the frentic "footwork" sequence that he lost control doing the spin right after.

    Adam Rippon (USA)

    Music: Korobushko by Bond

    3Lz - 'Rippon', nice
    3A - long entrance,sets foot down early, holds on, but landed
    3F+3T - 3T was < or even <<
    FCSp
    CSSp
    SlSt
    CCoSp

    Nice performance and spins, still needs to work on his jumps.
