    hello everyone , I'm so sad that Aliona and Robin had to withdrawn, but better now and get healthy than during Olys I think...In that case it looks like we'll have probably a russian podium here in Budapest, but I have my fingers crossed for Stefania and Ondrej - their FS this season is amazing and they skate it to one of my fav soundtracks so I'm not so objective here, but wish great skate to all of the pairs !

    PS. thank you all for stream links!

    So that was what the link I copied instead of the livestream was!

    Here's the translation:

    In short, Aljona has bronchitis, and doesn't want to risk it getting worse and putting them out of the Olympics.

    Savchenko/Szolkowy withdrawn from Euros as she is sick with an viral infection. :-( And it's her birthday today. Get well soon, Aljona!

    K/K were cute together - made me smile - you just have to blink for a second for the sbs jumps and all is fine
    René Lohse joined Daniel Weiss for the commentary, the 2004 Ice Dance World Bronze Medalist with Kati Lohse.
    Of course, Weiss (mis)uses him to vent about his frustration of skaters using too "old" music ("old ham"; alter Schinken), like Kovtun using Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto N°1 with 18. Poor Daniel is really bothered by this!

    Miriam ZIEGLER / Severin KIEFER (AUT)

    Music: Beatles Medley

    She's in orange halter dress. He's in brown pants, brown/orange sweater vest over cream shirt

    Li
    2Tw
    3S+2T - solid
    3T - she falls
    2LoTh
    FCCoSp - unison off
    Li
    3STh
    ChSq - spread eagle/spiral, spiral
    Li
    FiDs
    PCoSp

    You can see they're singles skaters - they need more difficulty on their pairs elements. But overall solid skate for them, and they seem pleased

    a couple from Estonia looks quite strong in the warm-up - nice 3-2-2 and some great throws, I hope they'll repeat this during their program

    Music: La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi

    She's in red dress, he's in tailcoat

    For me, the Burlesque music should be kept to Ladies Singles skating. It just doesn't work for Pairs Skating.

    That music is about strippers. And you cannot get that across properly when a man and a woman are skating together.

    And it doesn't help when the couple using it are so cute! Or that they are dressed like it was a normal Pairs routine.

    Not exactly interpreting the music, is it?

    At least when Adelina and Akiko used that music, they tried to get into character, and dressed as near as the rules allowed to how a stripper would.

    Not that I would encourage skaters to dress like strippers, of course!!!

    But, you know what I mean!
