    Last year Alex Johnson was a replacement for another skater who couldn't make it (Jeremy Abbott, I think), and he turned out to be the highlight of the show! Just love him!

    Photos didn't come out so well last year with the lighting, but I'll definitely take some videos. :)

    I think we'll be at the 2pm show! Are you gonna be there? :)

    ETA: We might do 7pm without the baby. Date night! Not sure. We definitely want to go. I'm glad I married someone who likes skating!

    Performers and organizers at An Evening On Ice 2013 Saturday, will be tweeting their photos and videos using the hashtag #AEOI13. This will allow all tweets to be shown in one place on Twitter for the fans.

    Any FSUers going tonight? I'm going to do my best to make it. My parents flaked on watching the baby so I'll probably be coming alone. Bah!

    Alissa is still uploading, but here's Adam.

    And here's Alissa! I love that she used music from The Notebook soundtrack. I've wanted more people to skate to it and her program was gorgeous. :)

    Great videos TanithandBenFan!

    I love how you can always pick Jonathon Cassar a mile away. Someone posted a twitpic that was in bad light and fuzzy and you knew it was him immediately - the gravity-defying spreadeagle gave it away ;)

    I don't suppose you happened to hear anything about Josh, did you? I read on Twitter he was sick and couldn't skate but in all the pre-show pics he looked fine - was it a reaction?

    He didn't skate. He was sick apparently. Haven't heard anything more than that.

    They just said it was an illness. I saw him leaving the rink when we arrived an hour before the show. I was sooo :(:( because he was one of the skaters I most wanted to see.

    I didn't tape Rachael but I wish I would have. Her Clair de Lune program was one of my favorites of the night. Her expression was beautiful. Looked like it might be her SP?
