    I knew I recalled the Morgan Bell name, how can one forget her! She's got tons of charisma, but she too is out of shape, once she gets that under control she would be right up there with the top dogs imho. The turnout on her spreadeagle is the best I've seen! But to be honest the costume reminds me of Belle Whatley from "Gone With The Wind", cathouse anybody? *blush*

    Again Mirai seems to have no emotional connection to the music. She just doesn't let herself go when she skates it looks more like a chore for her. And where has her speed gone?

    Haley Dunne had a more exciting performance than Mirai and she suffered from (non) rep scoring - or at least the booing crowd thought so. Very talented young skater.

    Mirai was good but this wasn't a SB, alas. Her score leaves lots of room for others. Not the SP she (or I) hoped for. I wonder how they scored that 3Lo.

    I just wish someone would come out, a total unknown even, and blow everybody away! Really want it. Land a few 3axels, et al, one can dream...

    And they're playing Eminem's "Lose Yourself", exactly, that's what they need to do, seize the moment, lose oneself into the music, take the shot.

    I think in this case it was more... intensity than chore like but I agree to some degree. She did give a recent interview saying that she has learned to/is learning to control her emotions more so that she can be more consistent. This might be a side effect unfortunately.

    What happened to Mirai? You can tell she hasn't been practicing very hard.

    Well, Alissa probably just won the SP in spite of the 1A. That was beautiful. It BREATHED.

    Actually, the practice reports would convey otherwise. I think the loss of speed has something to do with nerves.

    Lovely lovely sublime beautiful music & performance by Alissa Czisny; signature piece for her imho.

    I just wish she would keep this superb SP, but jazz it up a little in the FS, show that she is versatile and can skate to any type of music, which is the mark of a true artist. Jmho. Otherwise, lovely lovely lovely

    ps: I own the same type of earrings, but mine are pink for "Breast Cancer Awareness"; swarzvoski of course.

    Despite the singled axel, she should set the bar high! BRAVO!

    I agree and I also don't like when people make statements like that. I'm not so much a Rachael fan but I would never dream of saying she hasn't been practicing hard- I don't know and I would never claim to know.

    Nice solid sr. debut from McKinzie Daniels, but just another pretty pretty skater/performance. But this is typical for everybody else on the world scene. Give me Mao Asada's "Bells of Moscow" any day.

    when they said McKinzie Daniels was skating to Love Story, I thought S/P's music, not Taylor Swift
