Thanks for the link, WildRose! Glad you guys like the article =).

Can't believe the show is in just two days. I really enjoyed the show last year and am going to this year's show (expect photos. possibly tweetage, depending on if my phone cooperates). It blows me away how cheap tickets are for Kaleidoscope. I hope people around the Charlotte area can check it out.

Coming out of lurkdom to say that it's *very* disappointing that the televised show will be for only an hour. It was 90 minutes the last two years. And that wasn't long enough.

Great show, though evidently traffic was awful and parking was worse, so half the audience was late (the show started 30 minutes late and people got in even later than that). It ran quite long due to delays and stuff (tape holds?) while they set things up for the TV taping, but we also got a bunch of extra musical performances that I'm pretty sure won't make the hour broadcast, as well as two programs from all of the skaters except Nancy, and some featured spots with local skaters.

I did some tweeting during dress rehearsal and the show: http://www.twitter.com/kurtfiles

This show was AWESOME!!!! It was so exciting to see Paul Wylie skate again. All the skaters did an incredible job, of entertaining the crowd. :)

This show sounds SO great. Glad to hear that Hunter Hayes was there -- I've been a fan ever since I first heard "Storm Warning." Yeah, I know he looks a little like Justin Bieber . . . but this kid actually has talent. :) And yes, Teenes, you heard right about him playing every instrument on his album.

Tina, thank you for writing such a wonderful review of the show last night. Your eye for detail is very impressive, and much appreciated. I can't wait to see your pictures.

Wyliefan, I was thinking of you last night. Pauls skating is nothing short of perfection. It was such a treat to see him skate again.

Aw, Ice Queen, that's sweet of you! I do so wish I could have been there to see him. I don't suppose the network version will show everything he does . . . but they'd better show at least ONE routine, or I'll storm the place!!

Great review. I was there, and it was a wonderful show!

Thanks, Tina. Sounds like a fantastic show. We'll set the DVR for this one! :encore:
