    Inexplicable hip hop beat mixed into that Carmina Burana, and Verner makes absolutely no use of it movement-wise.

    Woah! 14th for Tomas! There must have been some downgrades or low spin levels for him. Awww, too bad!

    I'm betting on it right now that he's going to steal the bronze away from Brezina, who will end up 4th again, lol.

    Overscored: Dai, Joubert, Amodio, Abbott

    So crazy — Abbott and Rippon still have an outside shot of getting 3 spots. They are 9 and 10. The gap is big, but I think it could be made up. But they will need some help.

    At least the top finishers were fall free!

    There are very few actual falls in this event. Hope many people are pleased.

    Unmemorable SP except for a few good-natured laughs here & there, and also got to see some artists perform, but overall not a keeper per my expectations.

    Final thought, Thank God for the Ignore Button!

    Japan is still in three-spot land, though if Hanyu and Kozuka both fall below top 10 (unlikely, me thinks) and Daisuke gets off the podium there's a possibility they could lose a spot.

    France has a chance to get 3 spots with Joubert and Florent in the final group.

    Canada is on the bubble to get three spots with Chan in first and Reynolds in 12th....will be interesting if they can maintain those placements. (More so for Reynolds than Chan).

    USA is secure in 2 spot territory with an outside shot at 3 spots

    Czech Republic is secure in 2 spot territory, me thinks barring a complete meltdown in the FS.

    A two-spot berth for Italy is possible as Contesti is just one spot away...

    Spain is currently in line to be down to one spot. They can get it back if both skaters improve.

    Russia is in the most dangerous position to be one spot with 16th and 17th place finishes.

    Ha ha, I've heard this theory before during the pairs competition. Maybe the ice was specially treated for French skaters. Alas, it didn't help Yrethe Silete and Carron/ Jones (well, maybe b/c they have no rep or longevity to begin with). So, it must have been treated for France's top men and top ice dance skaters only.

    Very possible! Brezina has had stamina problems and I don't think he has overcome it yet. Go Brian, Go!!!

    Ok... so this is probably the weirdest men's event at worlds since 2000. Ironically the 2000 worlds were also in Nice.

    No, not pleased at all. Doubled and singled jumps are more penalized in COP than a fall on a rotated triple or quad, and we saw a lot of popping today, sadly.

    Compare to the last group, I think his skate is really very nice.
