    Top 5 in each discipline skate, plus home country skaters (S/Z, B/L), plus anyone else they invite

    When is the gala? I can't find it anywhere. The channels here don't say anything. Does anyone have a link?

    will chack some of the skaters and show other sports as well.

    Programming note for U.S. viewers of the NBC network telecasts (not NBCSN):
    Seems that gala coverage will be included in both the late-night and primetime shows on Saturday (Feb 22).

    Cross-posting from another gala thread:

    Most of the Olympic gala line-up (in order) is posted here:

    I thought top 5 of each discipline skated?
    Top five from the individual competitions for each discipline + Daisuke Takahashi + Mao Asada. (Placements from the team event do not confer eligibility, it seems.)
    Plus a few Russian non-Olympians, such as Radionova and Stepanova/Bukin.
