    Fine work by Tatjana Flade as usual.

    I have two questions.

    Riazanova and Tkachenko received a two-point deduction for a music restriction violation. Apparently, the majority of judges felt that the Romance by Georgi Sviridov didn’t have enough rhythm.
    How can something like this happen? Why would their coaches choose music that did not satisfy ISU requirements? If it is borderline, why take a chance on what "the majority of judges" might or might not think about it?

    Second...Does Weaver and Poje's song mean "I am sick?"

    Wow! Just saw the Italian team and they were so enjoyable to watch. Beautiful choreography and music. They had my favorite free dance of the night and it did not seem so contrived like some of the other top teams.

    When it was Plushenko's exhibition I heard it always translated as "I am sick" - He actually still does it and its been over a year.

    Math, It's like UR's and flutzing. Although there were rules against both, deductions were not taken for years, and people kind of ignored the rule. In dance, they ignored the audible beat rule , especially if there was no beat for a relatively brief time, as in Nino Rota's Romeo & Juliet.

    This year the music violation for no audible beat for more than some number of seconds has been taken 3 times. Zhiganshina & Gaszi were penalized at Nepala and had to add a beat, and a junior team was also penalized on the JGP, both for Romeo & Juliet. I don't recall the deduction ever being taken that way before.

    So this can happen when coaches and choreographers don't believe the rules will be applied, so they violate them.

    In fact, sometimes the non-application of rules in skating is quite shocking, as when Amodio was not penalized for having understandable words in his LP at Worlds last year.

    As to the question about Je Suis Malade- here's one translation of Lara Fabian's song:

    I do not dream any more
    I do not smoke any more
    I do not have even any more history
    I am alone without you
    I am ugly without you
    I am Like orphan in a dormitory
    I do not want any more
    Of living my life
    My life ceases when you leave
    I do not have any more life
    And even my bed
    Transforms itself into quay of station
    When you go away…
    I am sick
    Completely sick
    As when my mother left the evening
    And that it leaving me only with my despair
    I am sick
    Perfectly sick
