    Kiira is missing some jumps.

    Kiiira watered down a few jumps, but at least she didn't fall, good job.

To me it seems that Rachael is currently less results-oriented and is more focused on her own skating and trying to better what she did in her last outing. I mean, she seemed relatively pleased with both her skate and score.

    Rach is always smiling, that's part of why I like her, but to see a once great champion finishing last and second to last is heartbreaking. I really think the USFSA fining her this past summer took the sails out of her, as well as leaving her long-time coach, et al.

    Here's hoping she rises from the ashes like the firebird did and comes back stronger next year.

    I can only think of Shen and Zhao at 2003 Worlds when I hear this music.

    Some good moments from Sofia, but overall, she doesn't skate up to the music.

    Bravo bravo Sofia!!
    ETA: I still think that the difference between her and Korpi should be more visible when it comes to scoring

    My favorite performance to this music is Sarah Hughes, especially when she skated to it at the GPF one year (that's when they had to skate two FSs). Ahh, her classic beautifully turned-out leg on the layback at the crescendo of the music was glorious. She had it all, jumps, spins, spirals, laybacks, flexibility, feel for the music. Am going to find my old tape of this and watch it later on.

    Sotnikova's dress looks like an overdecorated cake. Let's see how she skates.

    ETA: Another case of not interpreting the music very well. Talented galore, but just not well-baked yet.

    Adelina reminds me of Oksana in a certain way, their downfall is also their greatest asset, expressing emotion. It has to be contained, controlled, lol Oksana wore her heart on her sleeve. Adelina's not that bad.

    ps: I thought the other Russian that skated before Adelina was better than her. Jmho.

    Adelina is definitely suffering from the pressure of expectation this season. She's almost surely losing her Junior World title to Princess Tut.

    Alena fixed her hair and put on some makeup... wow. Guess she listened to some of the critiques. But I'm not sure there's any hope for her sp look, unless she completely overhauls it.

    I admire Leonova so much. Heart and soul, for all to see. She really is living up to these musical selections. A shame about the mistakes at the end.

    I like this new sophisticated look of Alena, honestly didn't even recognize her. A couple of wild landings, a fall, but overall good job, and she seems to be loved by the crowd the most. It's a Russian thing.
