To my surprise, I thought Alex Johnson was the best thing about this show! I had never heard of him, but was really impressed by his gorgeous choreography and movement. Joannie was fabulous as well, and Ricky Dornbush proved that he could land a 3A under spotlight while in character (just don't ask him to do it when there's a national championship on the line?). I agree that Sean Rabbitt is becoming quite the performer, too. Good for him! I sure hope Adam Rippon's haircut gives him the look he needs for his competitive programs because I really missed his beautiful curls. . . :(

Just like last year, it made me sad to watch Kimmie Meissner because--try as I might--I could not detect even a shred of evidence that she was once a world champion. She barely landed a 2A, her only other jump was a 2T, her spins were less impressive than most of the girls I see at the rink who are Intermediate level or higher, and her artistry/expression was forgettable. :slinkaway
