Going into the final group, Ana SCEPANOVIC leads overall by 5.61 from Defne Gunce KILIC, who is 0.77 ahead of Alexandra LAZAROVA, who was the last to skate in Group 2.

Group 3 Warm-Up currently on. And I am getting excited and nervous for Stefania Yakovleva!

:cheer: ALL THE BEST :cheer:

Mmmm. Quite a few falls so far this group. The only one that has gone clean is the Turkish girl who kicked off the group, Selin AKBULUT, who is now leading both FS and overall.

After the SP, 2nd place downwards was very close. So, although I am hoping that Stefania can move upwards, I was also worried that she could lose places. But, with the way the group has gone so far, if she skates clean, she shouldn't have to worry about those that were behind her.

:cheer: ALL THE BEST :cheer:

Another great skate from Stefania.

She was a bit wobbily towards the end of one of her spins near the end, but that was the only issue I saw. Unlike most of the skaters this group, she didn't fall.

And she looked to be enjoying herself!

Loved the black lace dress.

2nd in the FS behind AKBULUT, but leads her overall.

Now her destiny lies in the hands of Karolina BATKOVA.

:cheer: WELL DONE!!! :cheer:

BATKOVA has taken the lead in both FS and overall.

Now for the runaway leader from the SP, Chiara HRISTOVA.

Mmmm. Not a set of songs I would ever have thought of putting together. "Singing In The Rain", going into Rihanna's "Umberella". But it worked. Until near the end when something else came in and it became a mess of sound.

Not a perfect skate at all. Had a stumble early on, and a very weird fall at the very end.

But, with the advantage she had, she should still win.

Going straight into the boys now

And at least he used the original, rather than a cover version.

Not too sure about having the music fade out at the end. Because it made it ambiguous as to whetehr he had finished early or not.

Tadeas VACLAVIK goes into a comfortable lead in both FS and overall.

Hey, you've got plenty of sparkles with this wee fella on now, Deyan MIHAYLOV!

Deyan seems to have a lot of friends in the audience.

Love the costume, it reminds me of someone's...

I just remembered Anna S's FS costume a few seasons back.

Does some hardcore head bobbing.

This one?


Yes, definitely the same shades of colours. The actual design reminds me of one of those black-and-white costumes we have seen in the past year or so, but there have been so many that I can't remember whose.

Anyway, he now goes into a comfortable lead in both FS and overall.

Very understated costume for the next wee fella (the boys we are seeing at the moment look very young compared to the girls we saw earlier!)

Same here. Although, I didn't appreciate getting deafened for the first couple of notes. (And bearing in mind that one of my ears is out of action at the moment, it must have been worse for those hearing in stereo!)

:laugh:

He's a little rocker! Just a pity he didn't have a leather jacket on top of that t-shirt. That would have completed it!

And now he goes into the lead.

No changes so far to the order from the SP.

My eyes are sore looking at this next costume!

I didn't notice the fluro on Yoanis's costume, so I guess the tropical theme fits.

(Don't ask me why that is, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it).

Erm, Yoanis was the rocker. This was Mehmet Cenkay KARLIKLI

A Harry Belafonte medley, consisting of "Day-O" and "Jump In The Line".

Would never have guessed that from the costume.

They look like post-it notes! :laugh:

Given what I just said, "sticking" is so appropriate! :laugh:

That was a fun programme. Goes into the lead in the FS and overall.

So, Efe Ergin DINCER won.

The only change from the SP results was that 3rd and 4th swapped places. So, Yoanis APOSTOLU went from 4th in the SP to the overall Bronze. And Deyan MIHAYLOV went from 3rd in the SP to 4th overall.

Hopefully this break will be long enough for me to do a whole pile of things before the Juniors start.

Whoops I didn't pay enough attention at keeping the live scoring thing up to date.

Some enjoyable skates in that comp, congrats to the medallists.

Don't worry, I can totally relate!

The lack of on-screen graphics coupled with not being able to make out the announcer clearly makes it a nightmare to keep track of where we are. I made the same mistake earlier on too, but realised and got it edited without anybody noticing. (I hope!)

If it wasn't for the livescoring page working, I would be completely lost. Especially in these younger age groups where there are only 1 or 2 skaters that I can actually recognise!
