Hmm.. Shibs scored 60.84. I/K scored 59.96. That is pretty close considering I/K got -2 deductions. Will be an interesting season going forward
Meryl & Charlie's deduction was for an extended lift, and Elena & Nikita was for an extended lift as well, and for a time violation... Hmm...
I/K also only got level 1 for one of the YPs...

Protocols are up:http://www.isuresults.com/results/gp..._SD_Scores.pdf D/W -1 for extended lifts. I/K -1 for time violation and -1 for extended lifts. Okay, maybe I have had too much Thanksgiving holiday good cheer, or watch too much sci fi, but I am tempted to wonder if the judges have had stopwatches/digital timers bionically implanted
D/W really need to work on that lift. It seems to go on forever and it never looks like they can hit whatever position they're going for. Other than that, this is still my favorite SD of the season.
Love the entrance and that they're going for difficulty with the transitions, but Meryl's splayed out awkwardly for almost 2 rotations before that split position (and I think Anna Cappellini hits that same split much better in the Carmen FD)

Watched it again and you're right. Once it goes up, she hits three positions in that lift and the second position is the most awkward one. I wonder if they really need it to get a level 4 or if they could just have 2 position changes and go directly from the 1st position laid out across his shoulders into the backwards split lift.

On You Tube are all three first pairs. And I found Williams Orford S/D.
I like it.

You only need 2 distinct positions to qualify as a change of position lift.
I think Merlie have the best SD this season. They have the complete package while showing something a bit different to what the other couples are doing. Also they have seemed to be on straight since Skate America. Clap clap.
