I actually think "Hoppipolla" might be too similar to Mahler (I know, but stay with me for a second) for them to do as a FD. It's very spacious music, with ethereal qualities that would empahsize grace and elegance. Hell, the costumes would have to be lightly coloured (white/light greys/blues/lilacs). No, I think it would be great for a gala. The lights off with only a spotlight on them; a rotational lift to match the crashing climax, their remarkable unison and peerless connection doing it all.

I agree.

I keep coming back to blues music. There is so much out there they could make something great with different tempos. They move their bodies so well it could be sensational and a big departure from this years FD and the characters they portrayed.

Thanks maggylyn and PashaFan:)

and thank you elle123 and pani for the photos. Tracy Wilson always says you can take a picture of Tessa and Scott at any point in the program and it will be beautiful, and she's so right. You can really see their 'Latin' hands in the SD, the lovely arch in Tessa's back, perfectly matched leg lines.

and I can't stop watching their performances from this week!

It's just one really minor bobble that Scott saved during a transition not even during an element.

Haters are just blowing it all out of proportions when the real 'mistake' is their team left points on the table with lower TES due to technical elements not being up to par.

Like many others, I didn't even know about the bobble until Scott mentioned it and I had to watch it back a couple of times before I found it (and only because he mentioned it was about the 1 min mark.) I did notice Tessa was a shaky in the jazz section before the spin but I didn't feel as if it affected their program over all, but I could see what Tessa was saying when she said they had to work for it a little bit more instead of it being an effortless skate.

No doubt it was still a fantastic skate! Hopefully we'll get to see vids of them competing it at WTT :)

Actually, I think critics have a point there in that a stumble or loss of balance by one partner should be a -0.5 deduction in the skating skills marks, thus making the two 9.75s that V&M received in that category impossible. And I would think that linking footwork/movement would suffer, too, though slightly as that didn't affect the rest of the program. So I do have an issue with the 9.75s V&M received for SS, but at least these did not have much of an effect when the scores were averaged. I still gave V&M a slight edge in these areas (only 0.25) due to the cleanness and depth of their edges and the quantity and quality of the rest of their transitions as D&W didn't quite use their edges as much or get as deep, imo. maybe I would have tied them. tough call.

but I agree, it was still a strong skate. They looked stable and in control for the rest of the program, at least to me.

I wonder if the judges even noticed the stumble or thought that it qualified as one. Can anyone provide further insight on what qualifies as a stumble?

ETA: Even if all the judges missed the stumble and/or failed to account for it in the marks, a -0.5 in the SS and a -0.25 in LF/M (again, this one is not a mandatory deduction, but something I would adjust for in the marks), when we multiply by their respective factors, 1.25 and 1.75, translates to a score that should be 1.07 lower than it was. This is still not enough to offset the TES advantage, so the FD results would have been the same.
