I don't see a resemblance between the two at all. I look more like Middleton than Tessa, but what do i know... and kate i doubt is that tall. I walked past her in person and while tall, she's not THAT tall. When you see her next to William without her heels, you can see it.

I think Alexandra Paul looks more like Kate Middleton than Tessa does.

Thank you so much for your reports, pingu. What do you think of the FD as a dance? Do you like it?
I love it. Every time I run up and down in the stairs (so quite often) I sing it and everyone is looking at me like if I'm crazy :lol:
I saw the practice this morning, they looked ok. Tessa was wearing the 4CC SD dres, it looks like today they'll decide which outfits use.

Oh, It's getting close. I'm so nervous for V&M. I know D&W are gonna win this but I so want V&M to do well. Their starting placement is so far back that they're gonna be buried......biting fingernails. I'm a mature woman lol.......I shouldn't be feeling like this. Go V&M!!! Good luck to the other Canucks as well.

V&M are in first by less than a point, seriously WTH is that, D&W were shaky on their twizzles & should be farther back than that, guess the judges don't want to look too biased & mark it like it should have been or V&M would have been way ahead & there would be no drama :lol:
V&M were flawless!

Thanks Lissa. I saw the standings and am happy with them (especially the
1st, 3rd and 4th place) but haven't read the PBP yet so I didn't know how well the top two skated.

claire it does seem as if the judges want to give the nod to D&W. Just as at 4CC's, they make a mistake on the twizzles but are still close to V&M. Of course at 4CC's V&M were said to have been less than 100% but if Tessa and Scott were skating anywhere near close to normal then one would think the point spread should be a little bit wider.

IMO V&M are going to have to really bring it in the FD and D&W are going to have to botch twizzles again for them to repeat as champions. At least V&M skated well.

I had to come here to talk positively about V&M. Lots of negativity on the PBP re: V&M; most were gushing over I/L, and D&W. They kept saying how boring V&M's SD was. Can't wait to see it.

Interesting. I can't wait to see it either. I don't have access to K&C any more, but at Goldenskate, the comments are reverse. Lots of gushing about V/M and disbelief at D/W and S/S's scores.

None of the SD's were overly exciting........V&M were perfection though, so I would have thought their tech marks would be higher. I feel some couples were robbed and some (politiks) were gifted. It's wait and see...........from what I've heard and the little I've seen V&M's FD won't be boring.......It'll be hawt!

As much as I'm excited about T&S performance and scores, can anyone explain why they were given level 3 in the second section of the golden waltz ?

Tessa and Scott was flawers, had big speed, power and really soft knees. I love there artistic impression. I think they was free today.

Go Tessa and Scott show them who`s the boss tomorrow and why your the greatest ice dance team since klimova and Ponomarenko, i laughed at D&W`s overscoring seriously the us fed can`t be more obvious in trying to buy them a gold medal, and Sorry Meryl Davis is so plain jane looking compared to the beauty Tessa:D

You feel the need to mention D/W in nearly every post. Why don't you let V/M's skating speak for itself?

It does speak for itself lets see how D&W would have skated if Meryl had two surgeries, i know i will fall asleep tomorrow with their snoozefest tango program.

Just watched on Universal and the commentator was talking about the snow on the 3-turn, maybe there was some sloppiness that cost them a level? Not sure? I thought the skate was solid, especially considering the time off, but the program doesn't really stand out. They skated well, but probably could have been a little more polished. The lady for Universal specifically called them out as lacking a little flow (other than the one spot on the GW had me :confused:) and speed (which I couldn't judge over the TV).

Sliver, I'm not sure what Meryl ever did to you, but I wouldn't wish Tessa's injury issues on anyone, especially someone with the talent of Meryl. Who by the way looked stunning in her (new?) purple dress and sophisticated up do.

I know this is a V/M squeal thread, but IMO there's not really much room to complain about the marks. D/W have improved a ton and V/M are just a tad short their usual level of polish. As proud as I am of V/M for coming back so strong after injury, we can't put an asterisk by the score saying it was x # of months post op. Everyone has to be judged by the same standard and if V/M aren't quite back at 100%, they shouldn't be held up based on reputation.
