I'm actually encouraged by the Dance Results. I loved the Canadians in the SD, and the Americans in the FD.
The scoring actually reflected two things:
1. The judges aren't afraid to reward these two teams if they skate well.
2. The judges won't hesitate to punish them if they make mistakes.
As it should be.
One would assume that, barring catastrophe, the top two Olympic spots in US and Canada are locked in. It will be interesting to see if either of these two teams can grab the third spots. I hope H/D do. I think I prefer them to the Shibs.
Who coaches the Canadians?
Paul/Islam are coached by Krylova and Camerlengo, same as H/D.
Thank you! Now that you've told me, I can see some similarities.
Both of the FD's were understated. I thought that would be a trend, since the SD is so upbeat/boisterous this year, but maybe it's based more on coach/choreographer.
coz I want videos.... I guess can't have one but not the other

Are H/D a couple off the ice? They skate like it.
They are a very good looking couple.
Yes, Hubbell and Donohue are very much a couple off the ice.

Sorry that this is a bit late, but I decided to wait a while just to see if they disappeared. Fortunately, they haven't!
Just wanted to let you know that the ISU livestreams are still available to watch on YouTube in their entirity. Unfortunately, I don't know if they're still geo-blocked in America, Japan and Germany. But, hopefully they're not!

I was kinda annoyed that Eurosport did not show the hilarious "Carmen" routine that Tomá Verner/Anton Kovalevski did just before the interval in the Gala, so you can find it (and the 2 1/2 routines at the start of the Gala that Eurosport also missed) on the final video.
Hope this helps fill in the gaps
