    Sorry, no time, Elizaveta doesn't do justice to the music imho. And I won't budge from that assessment, now onto the next group, ole!

    I like Elizaveta's music... I just think she needs to mature presentation wise. Overall though, obviously, she was wonderful today. Her jumping is to die for!

    She's got the jumps but nothing else imho. Her countrywoman, Yretha Silete, is miles ahead of her as far as line, presentation, artistry, and feel for the music goes. And Mae *needs* to get rid of the stocking over boots look, as they make her look sloppy/unkempt/bulky. Jmho.

    She didn't even really have the jumps today. I agree otherwise. Also the costume doesn't flatter her amazonian look.

    Very nice skate from Viktoria Helgesson. Take that, French announcers who announced Murakami out of place. That's the best I've ever seen from her. What a jolt of confidence will do for a skater!

    Darn, totally missed Viktoria's skate, my computer crashed.

    But I recall thinking "boy, here I thought Cynthia Phanuef was a diva, no way, Viktoria has her won, she takes even longer to get out to the ice".

    Holy cow her mule kick is just as bad as Tara Lipinski's! And she needs to work on her leg line, but not a bad skate, good in fact, like how she uses her fingertips.

    Murakami looks ecstatic. She did nicely but she'll get dinged, I imagine, for the mule kick and step out on the 3F combo. But I love her style and look. She's grown up fast. One of my favorites.

    I'm impressed she can jump so well considering the mule kick.

    Sigh. I guess Alissa will beat out Murakami on spins and PCS, in spite of the jump bobbles.

    Is anyone else bothered by her habit of hunching her shoulders to express delight?

    Darn, just when I'm starting to warm up to Alissa Czisny, her barely rotated jumps give out on her.

    Still, she should have the highest PCS out there, she's exquisite, her absolute best program yet, bar none. Music, choreography, costume, elegant look, feel for the music, smile, et al, simply the best...

    Ahhhh, I can now see her as World Champion in 2012.

    Finally, I'm a fan, she almost made me cry.

    The fixed smile on Alisa 's face throughout the whole program annoys me somehow, it looks like it is choreographed. Not out of joy. And I wish her great spins were going with the tempo of music, like Mao's. The dress is gorgeous.
