I like Agnes's music selection and the straightened ponytail she's sporting.

This dress really flatters Agnes. I'm really enjoying her performance too.

I don't know if it says something bad about the state of US pairs that a skater that's only 15 and has only been skating a few months came in fourth, or if it shows what a truly :kickass: skater Mary Beth is/:kickass: partner Rockne is.

I almost didn't recognize Agnes without all the whicketywhack. But then I noticed the missing piece of her costume and knew yes, indeed, it is her.

I feel like this music is too fast for Agnes. She feels like she's crawling to me. But she does look amazing. Serious proof that she needs a looks intervention for competition.

Never like how Tom's skaters were packaged. Wrong colors and too much be-dazzler. Agnes looks so much better. Betcha she picked out the dress.

I really wish that this were their FD. It's so much nicer than Cabaret.

ITA with y'all about the ponytail being flattering and fabulous, but I really didn't like her dress at all. I thought, like the music, it was a little too mature for her.

The queen of the ponytail is still Ashley Wagner, who understood that when you put your hair in a ponytail for dress-up, you straighten it so it's flat and even at the top and you don't need ten thousand barettes, and THEN you curl the tail once it's perfectly in place.

I'm distracted by the hearts on Madison's skates. I feel like they're both skating separate programs and just sort of occasionally posing around each other. Did they use the music box version of R&J?

I also liked Madison & Greg's exhibition program better than their FD. That was beautiful in person and it was beautiful on TV too. :D

BTW-Agnes was much faster in real life than she looked on TV. I loved her program because it allowed her to have some fun. :)

"I was last in novice twice" - Do I care? No. Shut up, Scott.

I'm so happy they are showing Nathan Chen!

That's good. I was wondering if it was the TV because I just felt like she was crawling to the music.


I don't understand why they needed commentators for an exhibition. It's not like there are going to be any results for Scott to "explain" and thereby ensure everyone knows he never bothered to learn the IJS rules.

Can I be the first Nathan Chen uber? He's adorable! (And really good, on top of that.)

I don't know, I do not like it when people skate an exhibition that looks more like a competitive program, I just feel like an exhibition should be a time to break free, cut loose, and skate to a different kind of music.


Oh my G-d this 11 year old Nathan Chan kid is so cute, his mom just screamed 'SMILE HONEY'
