    Virtue and Moir's louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald music threatens to steal the show away from the skaters.

    I don't know. It's starting to grow on me.

    The grannies of this bunch. Akiko and Amelie have great programs this season too (esp Amelie's FS, I've rewatched it so many times already, do it justice!). Really hoping that Amelie can have a fulfilling, Olympic season.

    Akiko looks great! That program is lovely. It builds so nicely and I really think a clean performance of it will score very well.

    Kaetlyn's program looks much improved though it's hard to really get the flow of it without the jumps or spins. Good news is it doesn't look anything like that first glimpse we saw a few weeks ago.

    Julia looks fine I guess but with no jumps it's hard to tell where she is.

    I'm sorry but Gracie's music is terrible. Usually after you hear something a few times you get used to it but I just can't seem to. The first 30 secs or so are okay but all of the screeching frantic violins make me cringe. It's extremely distracting. I'm going to have to watch her SP with the volume turned all the way down. Aside from the music issues her jumps look pretty wobbly. It didn't look like she was going for the combo (just marking it) but she went for the 3L and 2A and had issues with both. Hopefully she'll get her feet under her before tomorrow...

    watching the ladies practice right now and in the background (up above the seats) is a pairs team doing lifts. That's way cooler than what little we can see on the ice!

    as for Gracie's music - I love the music, but it makes me want to watch Disney's Sleeping Beauty (as they used the ballet for the soundtrack) more than it makes me want to watch her skating...

    She often just marks her run-throughs. It has been surprising to me because before I realized that she struck me as the full-run-through-every-single-time-type.

    Gracie jumped a lot. The were many lutzes from her, the clean ones
    Julia also did many combos, but fell once, doing a single jump though. Looked strong

    I love how Julia fell on her flip and just did it 3 more times, all of them were clean! Her spins were great, but sometimes they were off-centre

    Julia also fell during a 3S but from what I was able to see (thank you to the beautiful camera angle that was offered during the last 10 minutes) she also landed a couple of excellent 3Lz+3T (one during the run-through)! Popova tried a zillion times her 3S+2T
