Regarding Patrick, I was really impressed by his SP at 2013 worlds, not talking about LP, not debating should he win gold or not.
Just really impressed by that one performance. That's it. So I think he is an artist at least in that performance.
Further I emphasized I am not a particular fan of Patrick, just wanna point out that, that performance hit me by surprise.
the same about Yuzu, since I am a fan of Yuzu (due to his musicality, personality etc...), I will bias towards Yuzu a bit if their performance on par. but on that day, Yuzu unfortunately is not at his best.
