    I completely disagree. Aaron was marked fairly, as were Rippon and Brown. Rippon and Brown both had combinations and both have better programs.

    He deserves to be in 1st, although I don't LOVE his skating. He had an excellent performance.

    Uh oh! Nightmare for Kozuka! He is seriously putting his Olympic team chances in jeopardy with his inconsistency lately, finishing 11th at the 2012 Worlds, not making the 2013 World team, and now omitting a required technical element combination jump in the SP to open his Olympic season. With such tough competition in Japan and only 3 spots, this is not good! I'm really sad for him!

    East of Eden is like the new Turandot. Anyone can skate to it and be thought of as an emotional, artistic skater.

    Beautiful skate by Tatsuki, though East of Eden will always be one of MK's signature pieces for me. Great quad/triple, and nicely landed axel even though it went up almost sideways. Love the split falling leaf at the start of the footwork as an ode to Michelle. He's also probably one of the most expressive male skaters today. Score is 91.18, 50.08 TES 41.10 PCS. WHOA!!!

    Interesting point, especially because I found this performance a bit strained (facial expression) and over-reliant on the gorgeous, emotional music to convey I AM AN ARTIST.

    That guy has the capacity to surprise. He came out of nowhere from last year to become one of my favorites at Skate America last year. And now that he clearly has the quad...watch out!

    He should be in 1st, but not with that score. Overall quality not there.
