    I did not recognize the specific music but it was latin/tango-ish. The had very good unison, I thought. Their choreography went with the music.

    Thank you, sandjohnson, for the reports!

    About Gracie not skating her new SP, I'm not really surprized. I think she would've already announced the music before she skated to it.

    And from Ice Network article month or two ago:
    "We're keeping the short program under wraps a little longer," she said.
    So I think(while we don't know the reason) she's purposely not saying anything about her new SP.

    I think Gracie was originally slated to skate the SP, but dropped out at the last minute. This could be because she's just not ready to perform it, or for the reason you mentioned -- she's got something up her sleeve that will be revealed to us later on.

    Whatever the reason, she skates the FS in a few hours. Best of luck to her!

    Carly Gold won the short program by about 8 points. She skated to Carmen. Sorry I can't tell details because I am not good at identifying jumps.
    sandjohnson, I too appreciate your reports.
    Happy for C. Gold.

    According to Carly G:

    So @GraceEGold's freeskate beat my total score...oops #embarrassing
    I will cautiously take this as a good sign.

    Considering that Carly won the SP, a very good sign indeed!

    According to Sylvia:

    Heard @GraceEGold scored 113.96 in Sleeping Beauty FS debut at Skate Milwaukee, landing 4 triples incl. 3Lz3T w/ focus on choreo in 2nd half
    It sounds like she either had some mistakes, or an incomplete program. Anxiously awaiting videos/firsthand reports!

    Edit: According to Gracie, via Twitter:

    Haha the 2nd half was all doubles

    This cracks me up. She's scoring 113 with a second half of double jumps....?? Granted it's a domestic competition so the scores could be a bit inflated...but still....this does speak to how high her scoring potential is.

    So, she probably didn't land her second 3Lz, her 3S and one other triple probably... What I'm interested about is the choreography, though! (4 triples with 3Lz+3T means that she probably landed her 2A+3T and the 3F then popped the loop, the second lutz and the salchow )

    Given Gracie's "haha...the second half were double jumps..." quip it sounds like she planned to do it that way so she could focus on he choreography.

    That was my initial assumption, also. After all, it's a local competition, so she doesn't need to pull out all of the big stops. If she landed the 3Lz-3T, I could imagine she also landed another 3Lz, and perhaps the 3F. Her toe jumps are much stronger than her edge jumps, which would explain the high score.

    Also, I would assume she received pretty good PCS, since her TES definitely didn't break/come close to 60.

    Just home from watching the long programs. I am not a jump expert, so I cannot give you details. Sorry. Gracie opened with a combination that looked like 3-3 to me. Then 2 more jumping passes that were triples. The long choreography section that came next was beautiful. She was exactly on the music with every little movement. Gorgeous. The second half was all doubles, so there is a lot of scoring potential there. Her costume was wonderful. Pink off the shoulder with silver "sparkles". The sparkles on the body of the dress were in an intricate pattern. She was clearly the class of the competition.

    Davis and Brubaker did a monitoring session last night and were not expected to skate today. We did not wait to see if they actually skated.

    Had a great time watching all of the skaters live. It is so much different (and better) than watching on TV. Makes me appreciate all of the information I find on this board. You guys must be taking notes like mad when you go to competitions and then post for us!

    Thanks again for your meticulous reports, sandjohnson! We who can't attend the competitions live for recaps like these.

    That's wonderful to hear about Gracie (and, yes, the opening combination was a 3-3) -- from your description, her long program sounds breathtaking.

    Thanks, Sylvia! The reports so far sound very positive. Hopefully a fancam will pop up on YouTube in a few days.
