I don't mind not voting. I can't choose a favorite anyway. Jeremy, Johnny, Ryan, Sasha, Nicole, actually all of them were really good. Some songs obviously were easier to skate to than others, but overall I think they all did very well.

Nicole seemed much more serious and mature (in a good way) off the ice, but just as musical and fun on the ice. I hope she's doing well.

And, on a more shallow note, I like Sasha's hair.

Wheeeee Mirai and Jeremy!!!!

Also on a shallow note, I want to give a deep conditioning treatment to all the band members. They all have very tortured looking hair.

I don't know if an arena can handle Nicole and Ryan on the ice at the same time :cool:

:) Johnny and Nancy doing mirror FW and SBS spins!

Loved all of the scratch spins each skater did in the finale. :D

FANTASTIC SHOW!

I know. They are totally :kickass:

LOL at Nancy and JWe skating together.

Love all the pairings. The skaters look like they are having a blast. WOW at the spin move Sasha and Mikey did. :cool:

I guess that this is just bringing out the inner :rockstar: in everyone.

Agree with all the compliments to Sasha's hair. A lot of different hairstyles look good on her (lucky girl!), but this one is particularly nice.

Great show! Event he finale was fun. So glad I tuned in.

Styx wasn't bad for a bunch of old fogies. :lol:

Reminds me of something like this (http://www.womensbeautylife.com/albums/Celebrities-HairStyles/long_40_s_with_bouncy_sausage_roll_003.jpg). Sasha has the right kind of face for it, too.

This show was so much more fun than I expected!

Me too! Lots of good skates! I thought some of these skaters would struggle with this music - not so!

Disson needs to do a Rock Opera on Ice. The music from Queen would be perfect!

Of course Johnny will win- that's a given. It was a fantastic show! Disson got it right! All the skaters were great!

This show is worthy of an Emmy nomination!

I only was able to catch towards the end, Michael Weiss, Sasha and Johnny, who were all good, but I have to say, Johnny really sold Grand Illusion. He worked it, clearly got into really interpreting the song and looked great technically as well. Excellent! :cool:

A very entertaining show! I was hooked and anticipated watching it from my first look at the promotional clip on youtube where the skaters are assigned their first songs. For the second numbers, I agree with those posters who have said how difficult Styx music is to skate to, but that all the skaters were definitely up to the challenge. Everyone did a great job, really interpreting the music well and doing difficult moves too, not just skating around posing.

LOL, Johnny's first number actually called for some sexy "posing," but I don't think his posing is that reminiscent of what Morosov wrought upon poor Amodio. At least Johnny is being true to the music and not aggressive and petulant with the :huh: posing a la Amodio as per Morosov's choreo. ;)

My favorite performances are Jeremy's first number to Paradise, Johnny's second number to Grand Illusion and Sasha Cohen's first number to Lady Antebellum's Just a Kiss (I loved her hair too). I also enjoyed seeing Nicole and Ryan perform! Everyone was quite good and all were looking fit and happy. It was definitely a great cast.

My only quibble is with how the camera kept cutting away from the skaters during their second numbers. If they want to show the musicians, they need to do a split screen. I guess the best way to have enjoyed all the performances was to be there live.

Jeremy really looks in fine form, and I too hope it carries over for him through Nationals and Worlds! I love this fun Christmas song performance from Jeremy at the Unforgettable Holiday Moments on Ice telecast from 11/2010:
