    Well, Mt/M aren't in last - something we all thought would happen.

    D/R were blazing until the last lift, which won't count. Wow to what they did well though. Should score well anyway.

    What a lovely LP that was! K/S became so wonderful on ice.. I also respect them for their great exhibition programs, which are always packed with interesting elements

    2012 GPF Pair's Free Program LP

    As I mentioned in another thread, the ISU could be trying to protect the integrity of Figure Skating as a sport. Some aspects of entertainment are not related to sport, but rather performing art. Performing art often can not be easily measured in quantifiable numbers, because it is typically very subjective. On a ballet discussion board, someone once posed the question whether ballet was a sport. Most members agreed it was not, but was instead fine art. One member further suggested the definition of sports included the lack of subjective judging. Although there are ballet competitions, it is very subjective.

    Certainly beauty, poetry, and fantasia can be a part of figure skating. However, the entertainment needs to be built on top of a "solid" skating foundation (view the entertainment as added fluff). Skaters should not depend on the entertainment to win competitions over skating skills. This may be what happened to W/P in ice dance. After last season, they said they had been searching for another audience friendly program. However, it would appear the judges felt they neglected the skating content. Some skaters can perform a solid skating program, but lacking in emotional entertainment. Others can produce a very entertaining program which lacks satisfactory skating. However the best skaters can do both (unfortunately, they may be a minority)
