    Mrs. P, I guess the gala is airing on the west coast at the same time as the east coast?

    I know that NBC must be skipping over some of the performances ... do you remember any super-special ones from the live show that have not aired on the telecast?

    (I guess NBC decided to repeat all the winning free programs, except Castelli/Shnapir.)

    Looks like they skipped the junior/novice winners. None of them were particularly memorable, a la Karen Chen fan dance.

    (I like Jason very much, but I am thrilled that Max is going to Worlds, where I hope/believe he will give us his best yet.
    Jason might end up at Worlds this year, and no doubt will be at future Worlds [multiple times] ... now that we know he plans to skate for eight more years.)
    I'm so happy for Max, too! He skated his best of the entire season at Nationals, and I look forward to him building on these programs heading to Worlds!!

    it was worse in 2008, three skaters/teams chose the same song... which is why Evan chose to skate something else...

    ETA - anyone find Jason's exhibition on youtube yet? I wasn't too keen on it (my dad loved it)... but a friend wants to see it...

    Can someone please upload all the gala performances from the broadcast to YouTube and post a link to the playlist here? (I wonder how long they would stay on there though ) I don't care for the commentary, but the quality is always so much better if the upload is from a TV broadcast as opposed to a fancam. I rarely miss skating on TV, but today I was so busy that it completely slipped my mind.

    Another question for Mrs. P or for anyone:

    Did USFS hold a closing banquet in Boston for the skaters?
    I know that it would not be something that fans could attend, but usually official and/or unofficial photos are circulated. Don't recall seeing any ... or did I somehow totally miss the boat?

    (Thx for answering my previous question, Mrs. P.)

    And I'm glad that Japan is hosting Worlds, where spectators give the skaters from all countries such a warm welcome.
    (Only wish that Mirai were joining Max.)

    Grrrrr i blew it and ran out of tape and didn't get the last 80 minutes taped. Serves me right for not getting another tape that i knew had enough time left on it. At least IN will have it up in the next or two.

    They did have a closing banquet, I believe. Here are a few photos:

    Not related to the banquet, but Polina Edmunds posted this very nice photo of her and Jason at the end of the Gala: http://instagram.com/p/jTIgGVEjT0/
    As I'd said elsewhere it was one of my favorite moments -- the two young ones holding the flag, excited to represent Team USA!

    Didn't get a chance to watch.

    Have D/W changed their exhibition number? I hope so.

    Love them, but that exhibition number was really unmemorable at GPF.

    I like Polina okay, but she's still a real junior skater when it comes to choreography and presentation. I did not like her musical hodge-podge exhibition number...every time one bit of music ended I thought "Please let this be over!...and then ANOTHER bit of music would begin!

    Thanks for the photo links, Mrs. P.
    (Duh, I had forgotten that I already had seen the photo of Jason and Polina at the banquet. When I saw it before, it made me smile because Jason looks rather spiffy in his suit.)

    OTOH, a pat on the back for NBC for another bit of color:
    At the time of Max's gala skate, I was pleased that Maddie Aaron and Max Settlage got a mention (by Gannon, IIRC) for winning the junior pairs gold in Boston.

    I thought that was nice, too!
