    Vera BAZAROVA / Yuri LARIONOV (RUS)

    Music: Polovetsian Dances (from "Prince Igor") by Alexander Borodin

    She's in red, brown and gold shredded dress. He's in black pants, brown golden vest over black shirt.

    3T - he doubles
    2A - he falls, no seq from both. Hers looked <
    3FTh - almost hand down?
    FiDs
    FCCoSp
    3Tw - good height
    Li - nice positions
    3LoTh - hand down
    ChSq
    Li - cool entry
    RLi
    PCoSp

    They have some nice lifts, but the sbs jumps were as usual a mess. And both throws not clean either. It's gonna be close

    Score: 55.43+59.97-1.00 = 114.40, 180.07, 2nd out of 6

    Today D/C were the lesser of two evils in my book. Picking your poison is no fun at all.

    Agree on the second! The only thing that I liked was the ending pose (not being sarcastic, either, that was actually cool).

    Bazarova/Larionov - Fantastic lifts and twist lift. Decent basic skating. The program lacked character and expression, however, and their postures and lines (his especially) still leave a lot to be desired.

    Whilst some of their pair elements are very strong, they seem stuck in a rut as far as improving the PCS aspects of their skating is concerned.

    B/L's SBS jumps are certainly a hopeless case but their lifts are

    D/C have beaten them, and thus FlattFan's long ago prediction comes to pass.

    Look at Bazarova's face when she discovered that they are behind D/C
    (my pairs predictions now are officially a disaster )

    Really!?! I actually like B/L - I find their look polished and Vera lovely! Except she seems to "cheat" all of her landings. I do not know anything about fs technique or scoring but that it what it looks like to me. D/C seem to not even try to improve their artistic expression and presentation - that is what bothers me immensely.

    Meagan DUHAMEL / Eric RADFORD (CAN)

    Music: Alice in Wonderland (soundtrack) by Danny Elfman
    Everlasting by Two Steps from Hell

    3Tw - ok, bit low catch
    3Lz - landed, maybe bit scratchy
    RLi - bit hesitant start
    BoDs
    PCoSp
    3S+2T - he has hand down on 3S, doesn't do combo
    ALi
    3LoTh - bit low free leg
    3LzTh
    Li - bit hesitant
    ChSq
    FCCoSp

    Some small mistakes, they looked a bit careful on some elements. Should be enough to keep them in 1st for now.

    Score: 62.37+62.45 = 124.82 (SB), 190.89 (SB), 1st out of 7
