Thing is, she CAN. I saw her do it.I hope she actually gets good programs now and learns how to emote.
In competition she seems to shut off and go into robot mode though.
I agree with the writer. Miki does not often show much of her emotions at competitons due to nerve, injuries or whatever the reasons are, sadly, but when she does, she tells us so much through her skating and she just draws us in, you know. Especially with her EX numbers.
These two are my favorite performances of Miki full of her passion and determination:
-LP 2007-08 season to Carmen at Nationals
-LP 2010-11 season to Grieg's piano concerto, at Nationals
When she is on, Miki is simply gorgeous!
Miki is gorgeous just reading a phone book!
She sure is. I wish she would wear simpler costumes, because when she's in practice clothes, not overwhelmed by fuss and feathers, she's a knockout. I admire her as a tenacious skater and warm to her personality. I'm so glad she's still out there.
