    Nice to see Mao doing something so joyful, even if at times the program seems a bit juniorish for her. I wish she'd have scored a bit higher... but hopefully she'll do well tomorrow.

    I'd forgotten how adorable the CoC flower girls always are. The cuteness is off the charts.

    Hmm... I don't know. It was fun but also a little junior for her. She can interpret music so well and I'm not sure Broadway jazz best suits her edgework.

    Gorgeous program from Korpi but, fouls up the combo - 3 toe (tight and over rotation, turn wild 2 toe), tight loop.

    Go pro Kiira. The fact that your most successful technical program was at the 2006 European championships is sadly telling.

    She could be the Disney on ice queen!!

    She actually had a great SP at Finlandia Trophy this season. She is still young and has many things to offer to the skating world

    I want Kiira to win with her gorgeous programs so bad but those jumps just aren't going to cut it...

    Hopefully she will be rewarded on PCS though.

    was about to say the same thing. mao has been "off the radar" for the past two seasons, i almost forgot she's still competing.
    this SP was so immature for her - well ....her interpretation was. the scrunchie, the cute outfit.....everything just made it seem like she was a super tall junior.
    where is the epic/fierce mao we all love?!

    Thirded. It felt very Mao Asada, 2005.

    At least her LP is decent....

    When she skated to powerful music "where is the delicate and lyrical Mao we know?"
    When she skates to lyrical program "same old Mao lyrical stuff it's getting old"
    When she tries something new, like this SP "where is the fierce Mao we all love?" I remember there were lots of people who hated Mao's skating during Tarasova(Bells of Moscow for example).
    I appreciate she tried something different. Since it was her first skated SP of the season I am going to give it time to grow on her.
