Thank you for the images.
This Episode was nice and I had my favorites:Madonna Rita with Don Max Stavilione; Maximilian “Noodles”; Peter ”The Cat” with “Kitty” Lena; Zhu ,himself and Oksi ;the Blues Brothers and especially “When Alex met Tony and Garry” :) in K&C . I was wondering what Igor Bobrin had for dinner but he was hysterical without reason . I mean ,it was nice to see something joyful after few lyrical and serious numbers but Petrova and Goncharov, in particular , weren’t that boring and the details of his Pushkin image were done very well(hats down to the makeup artists).

What about Jana Khokhlova over the last two weeks? Utterly awesome in the lifts department. I bet Khvalkho can't wait to get his hands on her, professionally speaking of course. :D

Scoreboard at the halfway stage

Men
01) Maxim Staviski 59.58
02) Povilas Vanagas 59.52
03) Maxim Marinin 59.48
04) Andrei Khvalkho 59.46
05) Petr Tchernyshev 59.40
06) Alexei Tikhonov 59.32
07) Roman Kostomarov 59.30
08) Maxim Shabalin 59.08
09) Ruslan Goncharov 58.86

Women
01) Tatiana Navka 59.90
02) Jana Khokhlova 59.60
03) Tatiana Totmianina 59.52
04) Margarita Drobiazko 59.48
05) Elena Leonova 59.46
06) Albena Denkova 59.42
07) Oksana Domnina 59.24
08) Naomi Lang 59.06
09) Irina Lobacheva 58.98
10) Maria Petrova 58.92

There is still a small 0.02 discrepancy re Totmianina & Vanagas. If Channel 1 don't correct it next week I'm going to assume that Tatiana & Povilas were scored wrongly at the time and that their score was corrected afterwards.


Does anyone know the pairings for next Saturday?

love the program, love watching those great figure skaters again showing us what we are missing since they retired, and hate the judging panel what is wrong with these people they are clueless really the weakest link in the program, don't understand most of the time their scores, they simply suck, beautiful technically great programs are underscored, and silly technically weak programs are over-scored.

The translated details
http://www.1tv.ru/sprojects_edition/si5847/fi14006



Maria Petrova and Maxim Stavisky, who skated to the song of Enigma, advised the viewers to look at their number as an abstract painting. "You’ll see,what you see," - said Maxim. "It's a life of strange creatures on the ice" - added Maria. Anton Sikharulidze like it as a whole number , but held the highest score, explaining that for the first pair the scores are always being withhold . "Remarkably subtle style, remarkable plasticity, - said Elena Chaikovskaya. - I was waiting for some kind of splash, but everything was very smoothly."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VOtmCofhwI

Jana Khokhlova and Povilas Vanagas performed darring dance to Bjork's song. "Everyone wants sometimes to fall back into childhood. Now I had the chance to fool around" - Jana commented on the number. The judges with absolute agreement gave highest scores. Igor Bobrin drew attention to a small technical error, but admitted that his hand couldn’t raise to lower the score, the dance was so good in general. "I could not stop smiling the whole time- said Natalia Bestemianova. She noted Povilas’s soft skating and how seamlessly couple looked on the ice.

(Later Yagudin asked TAT “The grand daughter was skater. The grandpa also was skater. The question is where were the parents? Probably they also were skaters and went on tour. “ TAT answered “He is here .He is also on skates. He gave birth to this number.” (she meant Zhulin) and continued ” Touching ,tender, playful charming, truly funny, amazing. Jana already came on this stage because this stage will never end if there are such a fans and leading performers .Thank you for the happiness and the interaction with real art” In the interview at the end Irina Slutskaya said she was watching their number with such enthusiasm especially Jana’s part and how deliciously she expressed everything that several times Irina had the urge to jump on the ice and act like a hooligan. “What would you say.? Will you take me with you?” and Jana replied “You, unconditionally!” She admitted that she was nervous and uncertain about the number. Later she thanked Vanagas for being such a great grandpa. Povilas on his behalf was grateful to Zhulin and Orshulyak for creating this number. He was also surprised by the scores especially those that came from judge #3.He thought that after their mise en scene there will be 5.6 ,5.7 even 5.0)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GrqtLj9aNI


Elena Leonova warned before the number: that no one has ever seen her partner, Roman Kostomarov, like this before . "I always wanted to be a singles skater, and in this number I have the chance to realize my childhood dream," - said Roman. The audience really never saw before Roman executing axel . However, the jumping turned out not very clean, but the judges and the audience appreciated the effort. However, the jury liked less the setting of the number. According to Natalia Bestemianova, Roman and Elena coped with the task that was set before them by producers, but the costume and make-up of Roman "mutilated" one of the most beautiful skaters in the world.

Oksana Domnina and Peter Chernyshev subtly demonstrated ice-conceived improvisation and deservedly got 12 points. Tatiana Tarasova has expressed admiration for the technique and winding mood with which the pair skated. "All is great!" - She cried. Anton Sikharulidze said: that after looking at the number,everyone would want to take the skates and go skating.

(He also added that their project is promoting and pushing the figure skating ahead.He added that not only the kids who were watching but he also would have the desire to take his skates and would go skating ,asking himself “Why am I sitting ?I’ll go and shake the oldness .“ I couldn’t hear clearly but it looked like Yagudin asked him ”And why are you still sitting?”
In the interview Tchernishev thanked everyone-Zhulin, Domnina and judges. He added that in this episode there were many mini masterpieces/chef-d'oeuvre/ and art plays and he hopes that even the amateur figure skaters can learn and recharge from the show‘s energy)

Tatiana Totmianina was playing with injury, which she received during one of the trainings, while practicing lift with Ruslan Goncharov. (In the profile she described the accident. “Everything happened within few seconds. At one moment you are on the top in a lift and the next thing you find yourself on the ice, biting it with you teeth, and then you see them on the ice .Of course, it is not very pleasant sensation, especially for a girl) "There is some fear , but I don’t feel negative attitude towards my partner, - said the skater. - We haven’t changed anything , nor made the number easier and we are confident that we will succeed." Once again, the judge set the highest score. "In my opinion, you sprinkled yourself with some blessed water, - said Elena Chaikovskaya, referring to the beginning of the number in which the partners have douched themselves with water from a bucket. - You skated awesomely! Everything was done so easily and completely invisible to us, this was a remarkable act. and the wet suits looked very nice. "
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21ULrtLnSr4


Naomi Lang called the French dance with Maksim Shabalin ,to the song by Nicoletta, her favorite moment so far. "I really feel the music and play along with Maxim throughout the number" - she said. And again, 12 points. Anton Sikharulidze said that Naomi and Max greatly compliment each other. For the Natalia Bestemyanova it was a pleasant surprise that Maxim corresponded so well with the role of a French men. "It was so beautiful, so easy and so romantic! It absolutely didn’t matter what elements you were doing" - she added. "Maxim perfectly lead the male part, and Naomi was just lovely," - said Tatiana Tarasova.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPYczZ3wZjw

The audience hailed standing the number of Margarita Drobiazko and Ilia Averbukh to the music from the movie "The Pianist" .The judges were also impressed . "I had the chills, not goose bumps but chills. It's brilliant," - said Igor Bobrin. "Music was poignant, but your skating was above everything. You coincided in every note, in the mood. Rita you struck me, I knew her completely different. This was high fly" - added Elena Chaikovskaya. And Ilya Averbukh said: "Our project is a project about certain position. Every number expresses a position and it is not only figure skating or overcoming yourself in certain elements .It is a moment when we can say something with the language that we posses and that our teachers taught us. For me it was very important to make a number that would express my position ,that would say thank you to those who went through those terrible years, and to remind those who are now screaming about the totalitarian regime without understanding, what really is a totalitarian regime. "
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeQ5WZds-ZA


If Roman Kostomarov due to the project "The Cup of professionals" tried himself as a single skater, his partner in ice dancing Tatiana Navka, with the help of Andrey Khvalko, learned element of pair skating. During the program, she performed a couple of throw jump, but with an error. However, as noted by Anton Sikharulidze, "if you don’t try those elements , if you don’t fall , it won‘t be interesting for the audience/viewers " According to him, "these falls are decorating the project." But Elena Chaikovskaya regretted that the fall blurred the impression of the number.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_wDhyFbXeg

P.S.Personally I would’ve greatly appreciated the effort but the “me, me, me, me” attitude of Tania Navka was kind of disturbing because she wasn’t the only one who overcome her/himself in this episode. Almost everyone showed courage and did something extraordinary with or without complete success and didn’t brag about it .But it is JMHO. Moving on with the next number:

Irina Lobacheva and Maxim Marinin presented to the audience and the jury philosophic number , whose idea was described by Maxim: "Every man who meets a woman can breathe new life into her, but also may take away the feeling of fullness of life." Yet the judges awarded the number with restraint. "The lift wasn’t done. It was very long and has turned out of position. And from that moment the number was ruined " - said Tatiana Tarasova. "We saw wonderful partners, interesting moves, but there was no duet," - said Natalia Bestemianova. Maxim reacted philosophically to the criticism: "It's figure skating, but life goes on."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4P7DvTR6UU0

Albena Denkova and Alexei Tikhonov performed a touching lyrical number to the song "Hallelujah" and included many difficult high lifts. "This is a philosophical number. I'm glad it was so complicated and that you were able to pass it on," - said Tatiana Tarasova. "Lifts were very difficult, they were done cleanly , and moreover at the end of the program," - praised the pair Anton Sikharulidze. Albena thanked her partner, Alexey, who in turn, noticed that it was a great pleasure to skate with Albena.(Irina,Alexey and Albena described the number as positive,good and bright.Tikhonov added that the audience and the judges understood correctly that there is an angel in each of us.)

Vivika, thank you again for the video links and your notes. I have enjoyed watching this show from the very beginning (in all it's combinations!), but the notes make it even more enjoyable.

I loved Jana and Povilas. They had such fun and passed it on to the audience!

As much as I loved watching Peter and Naomi skate together, seeing Peter with Domnina makes me wonder again what Peter might have achieved with another partner. This was fantastic! :)

Tatiana Totmianina has to be one of the bravest and strongest women I've ever seen. The girl has guts. :respec:

:) I enjoyed all numbers and you are right about Tchernishev/Domnina and not only about their team. There were numbers and teams / i hope there will be even more/ that perfectly answered the question "what if". Well maybe perfectly is a little bit exaggerating but all skaters put their life and health on hold , week after week,put their hearts in those numbers and made them in such a short time so they deserve every applaud and cheer and even more .O.K. that was too emotional even for me:yikes:

Here is an announcement about the next show :
Theme 90's movies

http://www.1tv.ru/sprojects_edition/si5847/fi13935

It says that Tania Navka and her partner Ruslan Goncharov included a goose in their number.Kostomarov will skate for the first time with his wife Oksana Domnina and Irina Lobacheva will go on the ice with knee injury.
