to me, it looks like they are two different skaters with different skills and different tastes... which is how i feel when i watch them compete. not gelling.

This is their second season with this.
I realize that. But her expressions were excellent even in their first year.

I usually find novelty numbers empty and boring. I even got tired of Javi's workout number after the second viewing. A lot of novelty numbers seem to be lots of concept and posing but little skating. This number at least has a fair amount of skating along with the weirdness.

Piper and Paul from James Bond to Evita . Love love love !
You know what struck me watching that encore?
Costumes didn't matter - their utter commitment to those characters and music were just so very prominent there, even after the competition part. I feel that even if the FD is not 'there' yet, it's really showcasing their biggest strengths. Which, looking around at other teams, seems to be a huge asset this season.

I agree... no other team is able to draw the spectator in like Piper and Paul

slow day here... so i will watch a bit of this... maybe... i usually don't like galas but i want to see shoma and piper and paul
I hear you.
I dont know how many gala tickets I have sold or given away. Shoma put alot into his performance, though. To counter that, there was what possibly was the worst gala performance in history. Singing in the rain interupted.

And it should be on Skate Canada's Dailymotion page, perhaps live?

Or the ISU channel

That was by far the best gala I have ever seen. Worth waiting an extra day. And the choreograhed finale was the icing on the cake! Beautifully done all. ❤️
It was exceptionally good. There was only a few low key stuff, the rest was fun.

BC you need a Euro VPN to watch it and for it to show up. Are you doing that?

Thank you. Yes, my friend MFarone has gently pulled my head out of where it was and yes, Doris' link is now working. By the way, when my internet download speed cooperates when the system is lightly loaded, using Proton Free, I still get 7 megs download speed with the Netherlands server in the loop and HD on Youtube, despite Proton saying its much lower. They want me to upgrade. Proton is worth it even if I didnt/couldnt use the higher speed. When My internet speed goes down to slightly above Morris code, at least with youtube I can chose a different quality. Ready for SkateFrance. Sacre Bleu!
