    Papadakis/Cizeron were just amazing.

    Even with the mistakes.

    Tons of speed, tons of attack, constant upper body movement and transitions, deep edges and the elements that did work (everything other than twizzles and that one lift) were amazing.

    This better win silver or I will riot.

    P/B were also headcases
    I love Papadakis/Cizeron but they've been struggling under pressure in the past and bombed a number of times.

    The roof should now collapse to top it off. :D

    Give them a pass this time, she looked like she was in serious pain

    What a FD for A/E! I have to say that I'm really impressed! It won't probably be enough for the silver, but it should be higher than P/C in the FD, at least!

    I was very disappointed by Aldridge/Eaton. Ok skate but nothing outstanding and generic choreography. Not a lot of attack or expression either.

    Stepanova/Bukin had very strong elements. Just one little bobble on the lift but very good otherwise. They have surely done enough to win but I found that program a little random and messy.

    45 PCS for S/B?! I really don't understand how someone can think that this is a good music for a skating high-level program... (Yes, I know that this is S/S's FS music! )

    It's not. S/S have another version of flamenco bolero, a worse one thanks to the vocals
    S/B's music is quite ok until the actual bolero starts IMO
    The French have amazing choreography

    I feel very sad because if P/C have skated that program injury free and clean, it would have taken the roof down. It was just so daring, so original, so well choreographed, ugh. What if...

    I have a lot of respect for Stepanova/Bukin's technical ability but that FD choreography seemed messy and random to me.

    Be happy they stayed in second place
    I can't wait to see them next season, I hope they go to Seniors because they'll surely be number 2 French team.
