Isabeau Levito - SP Worlds
Kaori Sakamoto - winning her 3rd consecutive Worlds
Ilia Malinin - LP Worlds
Deanna Stellato becoming a World Champion in Pairs
Ava Marie Ziegler's overall performance this season
Amber Glenn's successful 3A this season (and her US Nationals title)
Jason Brown still being relevant after many years AND in the "quad age".
Adam Siao Him Fa managing to rise from 19th place to win the Bronze.

And an "honorable mention" to the Montreal audience at Worlds.
They didn't skate, but they sure supported the skaters big time.

- Piper and Paul's RD and FD. One of the few RDs this season that actually had an 80s feeling. And Wuthering Heights is so eerily beautiful...
- Pipe's shiny pants
- everything Kaori
- Shoma. When he's on, he is mesmerising
- Adam. Wonderful SP and breathtaking scary FS. That cartwheel thingy...
- Jason. And Deniss. They don't need quads to be a guft to figure skating.
- Yuma. The softest knees in the business.
- all the great ice dancers. Such a shame the RD theme was a dud.
- Men in billowy shirts. Who wore it best, Paul, Jun or Deniss?

There are many more things I liked, especially all the quality and depth of the Ice dance field. Men were also a blast this season. There are many potentially interesting women, but they need better programs and music.
