    Well, at least Ashley is skating even if she isnt jumping.....gives me hope for nats.....
    As for MathMan and the four prettiest ladies, well, I have to agree, but as pretty and interesting as their faces are, they are so different....which I find interesting....not like the marketing cookie cutter blondes we see on TV at all....are we just biases?

    I absolutely agree. They're not even a skating "type"--they're different heights, different builds, and certainly different faces--each one beautiful largely because of their individuality and expressiveness.

    And I'd like to add a vote and a sigh for Charlie....

    ETA: Looking at the photos, I see that Nastia is there! How wonderful to see her as well as the Fierce Five.

    I try and look at them and not thinking of them as the skaters I know, but it is impossible...that is why I think I am biased....Maia is of course beautiful even if you dont know who she is, but knowing who she is makes her more so....re-watched Worlds 2011 Ladies long tonight....as the wind blows and the snow piles up.....that was a pretty close competition...

    Such a thrill to see the worlds of skating and gymnastics collide! Everyone looks like they are having so much fun. Can't wait to see the show on TV.

    As an Asian-American, I am probably biased but I have always thought of Maia as such a beautiful person, both inside and out. She always presents herself in such a lovely and mature way, even from when she only 11 years old. Now 18, she is just blossoming before our eyes into SUCH a beauty. Impeccable taste in clothes too!

    Binthere, I don't think you're showing bias at all. Everyone seems to think of Maia as beautiful inside and out. Some people just stand out, don't they? I always felt that way about Michelle Kwan, whom I've watched since she was twelve, and I'm not Asian-American.

    The fact is, we're uncommonly lucky in our ice dancers right now in North America, aren't we? It's a splendid turn of events.

    I'm happy to see some of my favorite skaters and gymnasts photographed together-but in all honesty I'm none to fond of these Skating and Gymnastics 'Spectaculars'. They tend to be cheeseville imo.

    Some fancam videos from the show are surfacing:
    Davis & White
    R5's "What Do I Have To Do": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzdBATqWHiE
    Adele's "Someone Like You": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_CmT5bp0po

    Gracie Gold
    The Show

    Lord, that is a terrible rink layout for the skaters to have to cope with. Kudos to Gracie for managing to do something in all parts of the ice surface.

    I agree. Maia is just a beautiful young girl and always seems so cheerful and happy. I love her look. She reminds me a little of Kate Middleton in that her clothes are always attractive and fashionable, yet tasteful and age-appropriate as well.

    Thanks. I've made a note on my calendar and hope I have the smarts to look at it in time.
