    I totally thought the announcement that she was skating to Turandot was an April Fools' joke... Precisely because of the association with Arakawa.

    It was skate by numerous skaters other than Arakawa and some other medalists. And what's wrong with Yuna being associated with Arakawa?

    Hey, at least it was with a live orchestra. How many skaters have skated to a live rendition of Nessum Dorma?

    Didn't Arakawa get to sleepwalk through her program, anyway? Thought that was a splatfest and she barely had to try!

    It's amazing the some skaters were able to skate their programs with a live orchestra! Thank goodness for Yuna's agency for pulling it off

    I wouldn't say sleepwalked. It was a great performance..

    The scuttlebutt from practices was that Arakawa was landing everything and the other skaters were shaking in their boots. After Sasha fell twice, team Arakawa knew a medal was in the bag, so they took out one of the planned triple-triples to ensure a clean program. Oops -- she missed the triple-triple that they did plan. Oh well. Slutskaya skating last came up way short, while not quite falling, and the OGM was in the bag. Beautiful performance by Shizuka.

    Here is the best competitive Turandot. Shen and Zhao, 2013 Worlds.

    I know, I know, but it still would have been interesting to see.

    2006? Tentative, but I thought that was still a great performance.

    Also, she didn't "sleepwalk" through her program in 2004. Two triple-triples, anyone?

    Back to Yuna. Love the dress!

    Phew! SO glad she didn't. Then again, it would have been really preposterous...

    She does! LOVE the layback Ina Bauer into 2A around 1:00. Totally reminded me of Yuna! Hopefully the KSU doesn't try to sabotage her in the coming years...

    It was a bit of hyperbole.
