    What a big joke Charlie had a clear bobble on the twizzle and they get that score that comp was fixed in advance.

    I thought V/M were better here than at Worlds. Their score was lower than I thought, I thought they would hit 110 at least. And....er, did Scott say what I thought he said in the kiss and cry? O_O

    D/W were wonderful and clearly deserved to win the FD and overall. And they beat V/M by over 2 points on PCS!

    First time I watched ice dancing this season I don't think I'll ever really 'get' it, though it's enjoyable to watch. D/W did wonders with 'Fledermaus'! The music can be bombastic and fast but they really nailed it in their musical interpretation! Also liked the Italians.

    EDIT: now I'm thinking about how awesome it would be if Akiko won Ladies, also with 'The Fledermaus' :D

    I only woke up in time for the last three teams, but I thought all three were great. If France doesn't get the team spirit award for their mummies and pyramid, there is no justice.

    It was clear who the winner was and should have been. What a way to end a season for the luminous Die Fledermaus!

    Did he say he "hates this event"? If so, wow?! No wonder Team Canada has no team spirit!

    I agree, V/M were less nervous tonight. I'm at their scores too, but D/W deserved to win overall. Scott also said that in the K&C!

    Maybe if you concentrated on being team captain, Scott, you wouldn't be so sour!

    I think the winner for the WTT is clearly D/W, but imo V/M deserved being World Champions. D/W just peaked at the wrong event.

    D/W got the best program. They should have won the FD at W, too. Scott is just nasty!

    There was a noticable mistake but Charlie's twizzles seemed off at the end too. Should have been closer but I think D/W seemed to be more on fire. Still must be more difficult when you just won worlds. Wonder how Patrick will feel too. Daisuke will have more modivation i would think.

    To be fair to Scott, I think he thought the camera (and audio) had panned to Meryl and Charlie at that point....he was just privately venting. It's understandable.

    If he feels like that, he should have at least declined the team captain role. It just seems he's bringing the entire team spirit down; this is a team event, after all.

    Well, not all that private. He's becoming a serial Sorehead. Most unbecoming. Best when his feet are moving, not so charming when his mouth is moving.

    What a nice performance for Anna & Luca! I wonder whether having an enthusiastic team cheering section behind you in the KnC wouldn't be a good idea at all competitions! It seems to cut some of the tension.

    I wonder whether Scott is not feeling well? he does not seem to be his usual self??? That was not their best performance. Even 2 of the lifts looked less smooth than usual. Watching Funny Face, there's one thing to be said about it..the Japanese audience can't figure out how to clap to it. It looks like if you are going to compete in Japan, that you should pick clapping music, because the audience seems to expect it

    Congratulations to Meryl & Charlie! I'm sad to be saying good bye to Die Fledermaus. It was a gorgeous choice of an FD for them.

    Protocols are up:

    http://www.isuresults.com/results/wt...D_D_Scores.pdf

    Meryl & Charlie

    Level 4's on everything but the steps. I saw the check in the circular, not in the diagonal, but they haven't gotten the level 4 in the diagonal all year but once. This year they have been going for musicality & performance, and it shows in their PCS, but they haven't been the Meryl and Charlie of old competition faces on and getting every point out of the step sequences.

    Base value 40
    TES 52.87
    PCS 58.31

    They won the choreo, interp & timing, and performance categories with many, many 10's.

    Tessa and Scott

    All level 4's except for one of the step sequences, good for them. However, they skated rather carefully, and with a bit less than their usual precision.

    Base 41.50
    TES 51.92
    PCS 55.91
    TOTAL 107.83

    Despite having the higher base value this time, they lost TES, because the execution wasn't as good as it usually is for them. And because tiny errors were systemic throughout the performance, their PCS suffered a bit, I thought. Not a single 10.00 from any judge, and the panel included a Canadian judge, which is telling. And there is a Canadian tech assistant on the tech panel too. *ETA there were 3 10.00's scattered around in Choreo, Perf & Interp (in different columns). I am too old to do commentary this late at night.

    I&K really got hammered on levels here.

    Level 1 on the spin, level 2 on the final footwork, and level 2 on that last lift that has been problematic all year for them.

    It looks like Russia perhaps should have sent Bobrova & Soloviev?
