Score: 100.74, new SB, total 154.90, new SB and into 1st
Not sure, but I think that was the outfit in the actual "Sunset Boulevard", which she was skating to?

Kanako Murakami (JPN)

I like her dress
3Lz - landed, but wrong edge "e", perhaps UR
3Lo - ok, looked UR
What a lovely skater! Murakami has such gorgeous skating skills, speed, elegance. Even with the two popped jumps, she landed 5 triples and 2 DA's.
Couple of pops here & there and a few bobbles, but another decent skate by Kanako.
Glad to see a smile from Kanako today. Solid effort, I agree, despite the popped jumps....She might a UR on the salchow, that seem sort of borderline to me...
leave no stone unturned
Kanako has personality and a tone of charisma and this program doesnt show any of it.
Rooting for the divas with Kwanford
Kanako was so somber until she finished skating. Hard to believe it's the same girl as the one called "cutesy" all last season.
She's such a beautiful skater, I just want her to conquer her jump problems and straighten her working leg in spins if possible. She adds an odd little bounce going into her 3Loop. Beautiful flying sit.

alissa just changed all her jump layout
Alissa Czisny (USA)
Music: Valse Triste by Jean Sibelius
3F - nice, prob. wrong edge though
ChSp - very nice
Good performance, better than SA.
So she's abandoning 3Lz+3T and 3S? Probably the smartest choice.
I thought that was a solid effort -- Alissa isn't very happy though. Still she did 6 triples.
You know I've never really paid attention to Alissa until now (thanks to the gorgeous SP of hers), and I've noticed she's gotten slimmer. Not that she's ever had a weight problem, but she seems to have gotten slimmer & added more muscle....hhmmm....it makes me think this may also have contributed to her now being able to land her jumps?
Whatever the case, I like it, and I hope Rachael Flatt takes note.
She might be better off doing 2A-3T instead...I noticed she doesn't have a 3T anywhere...
