    Kanako was magical. Delicate, emotional, gorgeous body movements. For me, she had the best artistry of all the ladies today.

    My feelings-exactly! On all counts!

    I'm thrilled for Mao and Gao lol! My favorite Japanese (lady) skater and one of my favorite Americans doing very well indeed in the SP! Very happy for Gracie too-she's in 5th and that isn't too shabby considering the top guns she skated against in the SP!

    She is really good and her smile is so contagious. Disagree about best artistry today, for me it was Akiko Susuki

    For me, both Akiko and Mao were amazing, from an artistic perspective. Their skating was so free, and their movements purposeful and to the music. It's hard to pick which one is better. I'm glad we have both. Along with Carolina, these three are the most artistic skaters today, IMO.

    I respectfully disagree; I think Mao's SP doesn't compare to past ones like Ladies in Lavender I just think it might be a bit too young for her. Mao, Yu-Na and Carolina are so good in all different ways and basically what sets them apart is their maturity on the ice.

    It's not just the triple-axel that was amazing. Equally amazing was the new step sequence. The old one was the most difficult and lovely step sequence in the business already, and it is now improved and made more difficult and lovely. No female skater can come close to Mao in step sequence right now.

    I watched Mao's step sequence twice after I watched her whole SP! It is the best in the business indeed! Quite thrilling really! :D

    OMG!!!! I'm giddy. Yuna is even more polished with the same TES. Mao is more polished with the same TES. Carolina is already polished, but up her TES to match. World this year will be so amazing.
    Ah yeah, sure, that's exactly what her skating is saying LOL. I think she is saying I am here, I want to compete and I am going for it. I don't think she is really competing against the witches with capital B's.

    I concur. I thought actually, now I will get blasted on this site, Mao was rather junior like though perky. and her dress nice coral color but silver doesn't go with a warm color the proper metal color would be gold - more complimentary and complementary. I thought mao was overscored but that's jut me.
