I am glad you are asking for a top 10, not a top 5. Still difficult, but here goes (in random order):

Shoma's SP (so beautiful)
Deniss's FS
Jason's SP and FS
Adam's FS (particularly seeing such a good skate so early in the event).
Deanna and Maxime's SP
Minerva Fabienne and Nikita's SP and FS
Riku and Ryuichi's FS
Piper and Paul's FD
Madison and Evan's RD
Marjorie and Zachary's FD

Did I forget Ilia's FS? I did not, that was great. Just as I enjoyed watching Charlene and Marco, Loena's SP, Kaori, and others. Particularly in the Men's events (Both SP and FS), there was so much to enjoy! One of my favourite weekends!
