Sotnikova's Long program (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceDNc_1OAXs&feature=youtube_gdata_player)

It's official: the strong jumps and the spark do not make up for the awful music. :scream:

I think it will become tolerable if she would just cut out some of the opening howling and the one in the middle - why howl during a layback spin?

Honestly though, the program is starting to grow on me. :scream:

Her skating is much better than in the previous test skate, but the program (music) is still awful. But she is landing more jumps than two weeks ago. So in another two three weeks it may be completely ready. In some programs the voice may be enhancement but here I wish there would be no voice at all...

I wonder why is her LP only 3 mins 10 long?

J. Plushenko looks different in this program, he was smiling a lot during the performance. Overall, a softer look. The Romeo and Juliet program went in that direction as well. He pointed out that the program is still raw and needs to be polished a lot. Hopefully he'll do that. Good for him to go for the quad Salchow again after so many years. Axel as strong as ever.
He won't take part in tomorrow's last test skate, he said.

A. Gachinski I liked that one. I didn't recognize the music. This program has potential, hopefully his jumps will get more consistent.

A. Sotnikova The voice is distracting, I agree with many other posters. But Adelina sells her program well and she looks matured and grown up. She also said that she feels more grown up. :-)

E. Bobrova/D. Soloviev I wish they would have kept the original version of their music, that is without the Tosca part, but in general I like the changes and improvements to their skating. They really do look different.

How many Russian pairs and dance couples skate to the music from Godfather?
Volosozhar/Trankov, Davankova/Deputat, Riazanova/Tkachenko...

It could be worse, they could all be using the Edvin Marton version. :scream:

Loved Volosozhar/Trankov's program. :swoon:

Did he tell you he will keep this program with 100 music cuts instead of Miyamoto's? I cant believe this is not just for test skates and he abandoned R&J for good :/ that looked like a real program.

Where is Liza?

Liza was injured, but back on the ice.

T. Volosozhar/M. Trankov SP Godfather jazz version
A new and different style for them, like that much better than last year's SP. Back to throw triple loop in the SP (good choice) and add 3S instead of 3T. They said that they moved the 3T into the second half of the FS and do the 3S in combination.

V. Bazarova/J. Larionov SP
"Liebestraum" a little generic. Replaced throw triple flip with throw triple loop.

K. Stolbova/F. Klimov SP
"Interview with a vampire", cool program and ideas, not clean yet. Maxim Trankov praised them. :-)

Angry birds the program almost.

It sort of was, but I want to see him in competition before I pass judgment, he seems to really shine there.


I didn't like V/T short at all :shuffle: Don't know why.

They can do so much more than what they were given. I hope this wasn't the skate that Morozov said he was saving that no one else could do :yikes: I guess I'll have to wait to see if the free skate blows me away, if not the German's new programs may be good enough this year to win again.


Stolbova and Klimov have the first lift I haven't hated this year! I like the Addams family free and I hope she can get a hold of her jumps soon. I really appreciate how they consistently produce really original programs :).

Not everyones lifts were ugly, I don't know why some were so bad and some not. I think S/K have the best short programs so far this season of the pairs, I hope they can execute them well.

Same old boring stuff as usual; they don't do anything to set themselves apart and with as good as the Canadians are getting and maybe D/C they may lose footing in the standings unless their free skate is stellar.

I agree with this - although I understand the need to make the change to something with a bit more excitement, I don't know why Tosca was necessary. Did TAT say that they had to use Tosca? Because if she did then I understand because they don't want to be panned by TAT and the Russian fed.

Her improvement in these 2 weeks is amazing. Is her opening lutz supposed to be a 3/3? Lutz/loop or lutz/toe? 7 triples and 2 2axels is going to be very competitive content. Now she needs to fix her spins...
