    just saw plushy in the review at Russia 2. BOA I like this program. He looks differently. Spins amd transition far better than in the past. Althought he only went for 3-3 this was a perfect one. also 3A was excellent.

    ps: this program reminds me of Kurt Browning's "Singin in the Rain".
    I think Javi had too much adrenaline into the 3A and the 3/3, the quad was awesome, spins look better and he seems more relax in the step sequence. I like his position so far!

    Well, Plushenko's jinx is working well. I picture him giving the evil eye, scaring the crap out of everybody!

    Let's see if it works on Joubert.
    LOL phones were ringing during Javi's skate, the hell with them I wasn't answering hahaha!

    Plushenko has one thing almost all the other skaters here lack: command. He skates with absolute purpose and confidence (well, except for the first half of that footwork sequence, oy). That should be reflected in some of the PCS, and I think it was fairly scored. Maybe his GOEs were overscored here and there, will have to see the protocols, but I doubt his score was that over the top, at least for me.

    On the other hand, I am BAFFLED Brian Joubert got the third highest skating skills PCS so far (after Plush and Verner). He looked painfully slow and tentative on my feed. Maybe my feed is deceptive, but almost all the other top contenders demonstrated far superior SS than him. In fact, his whole PCS is a non sequitur to me. He skated the whole thing like he was cringing.

    This youngster from Belgium (whom I've never seen before btw) resembles Keegan Messing of the USA in the face.

    Nice program to a medley by M Buble, fully rotated on the 3A but stumbled out, 3L poor landing, but managed a 3T - i think that was fully round, nice 3S from steps, nice footwork, used the music, steps need a bit more work but they were nice, LOVED the program

    SUPERB program from Artur (SO)! Should easily go into first ~ beautiful 4/3 combo., as well as excellent 3A ~ and light & quick on his feet. He does his idol, Evgeni Plushenko, proud, likewise their mutual coach!

    BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!

    Gachinski is the only who got the immunity shot against the Plushenko's evil eye.

    84.80. First. Virtual tie.

    That's how you skate during a European Championship. Well done MicroPlushy!
