Wow-C/L received level four for all of the elements. Congratulations!
Really enjoyed, the Italians and D/W. C/L are really gunning for a OLy medal, I felt like the shibs where stiff,if they can stretch and extend ,that program can really excell
Davis and White are so good that it almost doesn't matter what they skate to, but...
I thought the old standards chosen by most of the earlier couples suited the quickstep better. I had a hard time catching the rhythm and beat of the Could Have Danced All Night parts of Meryl and Charlie's routine. (Get me to the church on time was fine.)
Meryl and Charlie and Anna and Luca just WOW! I really like the Shibs
SD a lot and I am looking foward to seeing their MJ FD.
Woah, Davis and White and Cappellini and Lanotte got level 4s on BOTH finnstep sequences!
Oh wait C/L got Level 4s on EVERYTHING. Wow! That's how you do it folks.
Wow at that GOE for D&W --
The Shibs actually had a lower BV than Hubbell and Donahue due to getting level 2s on Finnstep (H/D got level 3/4) but made up for it in the +GOE. (3.80 vs. 2.79).
Tobias and Stagniunas had a level 4 in one Finnstep but then only a level 1 in the other....hm....
Videos anyone, please?
I almost hate to post this in case it alerts TPTB, but it's already been posted once, so ... youtube user brau avitia. I've seen EVERYTHING so far tonight. Thank you, whoever you are!
PS Mrs. P, you beat me to the punch!
Wow, other than a level 3 on the non touching midline step sequence, perfect levels and all GOE 2s and 3s for D/W.

This channel also has some videos of SD.
Aw, the Shibs' program is adorable! And the Italians were indeed amazing.
But the My Fair Lady orchestrations and vocals are simply weak. Doesn't have the punch it needs.
Really liked C/L costumes.
And gotta give some love to the Shibs. They seem back on track. And Alex looked so handsome and lean and tall (5'10")
Mrs. P Protocal breakdown:
Hey, look. Cappellini/Lanotte beat Davis and White in something! And wow, the Shibs had really low Finnstep scores and still managed to eek out the lead over Hubbell/Donohue.
Wow I agree...that was a fun event! Watched it on Icenetwork and thought Tanith did a great job explaining the Finnstep.
Meryl and Charlie as always blew the competition away with their skill and lightning fast speed. I absolutely love that program! The Shibs were enjoyable too...can't take my eyes off Alex. C/L skated really well but I've never been a big fan of theirs for some reason.
