So beautiful. She is also with a new dress.
I love Caro’s new dress. so pretty. and she has such a good body. such long legs.
OI m watching Gala now on tv and the opening was fabolous, unlike Euros which was predictable, it is with kids dressed as fairies or sth, I thought it was awesome. The thing that they sing national anthem in every competition, i never got it, it looks out of place.
Did you see how Brian and Amodio entered when introduced?Blades of Glory part II. I love their relationship.
Brian's ex program was very cool and different!
T/T and Ashley and P/B have a great ex so far!
V/T didnt do their super mario exhibition, they did their sp, lol!
Crisis of Takahashi should be an sp
Carolina wore the best dress I ve seen, very beautiful. On the other hand Tessa's dress looked like a christmas wrap.
I think I like Chan's exhinitions way more. Is this Nichol choreo as well?

someone please post virtue and moir and weaver and poje.
I only caught the last few exhibition numbers and am watching the program on CBC site now. Really like Joubert's skate, very different from his usual style but beautiful.
I watched some of it but I always find the galas rather anti-climactic compared to the competition.. I liked Ashley Wagner though.
Wow. I think that EX might have been the best thing Patrick Chan has ever done. I've always considered him artistic, but I think this was at a new level. Scary as it is, this seems to suggest that he might just be scratching the surface of his abilities. I'd love to see him bring something like this to competition next season. Bravo. (And Bravo to Jeff Buttle, who seems to have tapped into an emotional level that I didn't realize Chan had.)
Jeffrey Buttle is a very good choreographer and I'm surprised he isn't in greater demand. If I'm not mistaken, he choreographed Jeremy Ten's lovely Single Man program, and I think he worked with Fedor Andreev (when Fedor was still trying to skate in singles) and had a hand in at least one of Javier Fernandez's programs this year. There are some really good choreographers out there and I wish skaters would look beyond the few super-popular ones for their competition programs (though Carolina can stay with Lori Nichol if she continues doing programs like this year's).
Galas used to be a lot more fun. Why are so many skaters skating to GFBs and otherwise boring music? And why does everyone skate to the same Adele song? She has more than one! Thank god for TakaTran and P/B.
Amodio and Joubert's lift was also a highlight - is it on Youtube? - and they both gave good performances.
ETA: it is! Also - the French team comes out for a photo up at the end
