    I don't get it either. I thought they were a bit of a mess, frankly. The music was some strange mashup of ballroom and Gaelic jig/reel. And the choreography seemed like a weird conglomeration of OTHER teams' greatest hits: a little White/Davis rotational lift here, a little Bourne/Kraatz hydroblading there, but none of it performed particularly well.

    Ah well, maybe someone else can explain it.

    Isabella Tobias looks completely unrecognisable. A very serious haircut, much lighter complexion, very natural make-up. Not saying she looks bad but BRING BACK THE SLAP!

    Come on, this is ice dancing. We want to see bronzer overuse, fake eyelashes, a crapload of rhinestones and OTT make-up.

    Very appropriately to this conversation, Lady Gaga is playing in the arena at the moment.

    I am very disappointed that we are yet to see a Lady Gaga FD performed by a team dressed like drag queen aliens.

    I'm definitely in no teknik, cos I found the scoring rather perculiar in that last group. I think everyone was shocked when the Ukrainians went in 1st place - it was nice, flowed well, but was very open - and frankly, I think the Lithuainians (minus the slap) are lucky to be ahead of the Spanish. That Oklahomo routine was interminable! And I usually LOVE cheezy Musicals, but it was seriously missing a change of music/rhythm. Plus he made a mistake in a twizzle.

    But generally, enjoying the SD lots! Think the 2 Ps, Piper and Paul should be leading, but once again, what's with the staid grey outfit. Should've worn a Cockney inspired mirror clad silver/black shiny waistcoat at least for Mary Poppins! Thought the music fitted in very well with their first Yankee Polka sequence. Perfectomundo!

    Maybe we will get luckier in the free skate... I imagine those other-worldly outfits might be difficult to polka in.

    Well Ice Dance is not exactly known for being cutting-edge when it comes to music. There are HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of polka records out there--and teams are skating to Mary Poppins and Oklahoma? It's like hoe-down hell in bad summer theater.

    ETA: Oh wait, this is a European couple so OF COURSE it's TECHNO hoe-down hell. LOL!

    Guess it's back to watching the Latvian stream and not understanding a word (this afternoon while watching the Ladies SP somehow I ended up with the Latvian video and the audio of the British commentators which was great for me).

    I did the same for the mens SP yesterday. Too bad ESP2 UK seems to be relentlessly showing snooker

    Strange sudden ending from the Czechs (and Neil Brown).
