Brian Boitano speaking now... I wonder if he is re-using part of last night's speech?

What a remarkable woman she's grown to be. She will always be my favorite skater.

I was crying a bit watching the ceremony and reliving so many memories; Jazzie kitten looked at me like I was crazy, lol. It's even beyond her skating- there is something so special about Michelle, something that comes along so rarely.

I hope she inspires the last 2 groups of skaters tonight to really go for it.

I totally teared up too. :) I'm so happy I got to witness such a special moment. Michelle looked so beautiful! The crowd cheered a long time when she took the mic. She cried but delivered her thank you speech very composedly.

I feel so honored to have witnessed Michelle's journey from 1996 in San Jose to now. She's such a remarkable athlete and an incredible woman. She's given the sport so much and I'm just grateful I can say I grew up during the Golden Age of skating and got to witness all of those amazing Michelle Kwan moments firsthand. She is so deserving of this honor and I'm so happy and proud of her. :D

Understandable though. In the grand scheme of things, Rafael and Scott didn't do much of anything. Michelle was already Michelle Kwanwhen she went to them. Not too much to do there...

But Frank and Lori deserve the credit for transforming the little spindly-legged, ponytailed jumping bean into the elegant, graceful and amazing skater she became.

Hopefully either IN will or USFS will put it up on their youtube channel. They already put up this nice tribute slide montage a while ago in honor of her induction:
