    (not sure if she was going for 3Lz-2T or 3Lz-3T - if it's the latter, then the 2S was intentional)

    ETA: sorry, my mistake - if she intended to do 3T-3T then she couldn't also plan 3Lz-3T

    Excited for the 2 Japanese and Adelina (Hopefully, she can prove that she deserves to go to the Olympics)

    Nikol GOSVIANI (RUS)

    Music: Prelude G-moll, op. 23 No. 5 by Sergei Rachmaninov

    Black sheer dress with white underlay. Lace straps

    3F+3T - hard fall, 3T looked borderline <
    2A
    2S - tilted
    FCCoSp
    3Lz+2T
    CCoSp
    3S
    3F - twofooted
    StSq
    ChSq
    2T
    CCoSp

    Rough start which made her slow throughout, sadly. About 3 clean triples only

    Score: 45.80+53.48-1.00 = 98.28, 152.04, in 1st (out of 5)

    Hmmm...

    Having watched nearly every competition this fall thus far, the quality of competition here is looking really low, to be honest. :/ It's much weaker than Skate America / Canada were, in my opinion. Xiaowen did really well in the FS here with everything considered, others have been... terrible overall, to be frank. In fact, I'm not sure why Xiaowen got rated so lowly in her program. It wasn't perfect, but it certainly wasn't only 1-3 points ahead of these past FS programs. She should have scored somewhat higher, in my opinion. Especially in presentation when we compare with Kexin in particular. Then again, I'm no judging expert...

    I typed this before this last performance but Nikol really wasn't very good, either.

    Hopefully the rest of the competitors will do better and we'll have a high quality podium performances but thus far this is looking to be the weakest GP of the series by far(for Ladies).

    Wow, I do NOT like Carolina Kostners dress. It's not flattering

    Red/pinkish longsleeved top with lots of gold lamé details. Blue tulle skirt

    Yes! Adelina has changed that terrible costume she had at Japan Open.
    Is Carolina's costume intended to be a mashup of every Scheherazade costume ever?

    I guess we will see today what we have seen yesterday: Adelina and Caro going in with self-confidence, the rest, not so much. It will be interesting to see how Anna is holding up.

    Man.

    Let's hope the second groups kicks it up a ton of notches. It's like all those ladies watched Alissa in 2012, Carolina in 2009 and Laetitia Hubert in Albertville to get "inspired" for this free skate.

    Agreed. It doesn't really conjure up an image of Sheherazade for me either.

    Haruka IMAI (JPN)

    Music: Piano Concerto by Saint-Preux

    Blue/aqua ombre asymmetric dress w/ lots of blue and silver flower sparkle. Matching flower in hair

    3F - solid
    3Lo
    3S - fall
    CCoSp
    StSq
    2A - hesitation, did not add 3T
    3Lo+2T - wonky, stepout
    3S+2T
    2A - twofooted, forward
    ChSq
    FCSp
    LSp - ended after music

    She landed some solid jumps, but there were still many messy landings.

    Score: 43.29+54.22-2.00=95.51, 150.30, in 2nd (out of 6)

    Must've gotten a music deduction
