Tanith and Ben "If it kills me"
I'm watching NBC in Canada...now, Tanith and Ben!
- literally. I'm going to miss Tanith's histrionics. I mean this in the most sincere way possible.
Since they skipped it, I'm guessing we will be getting Johnny's second number which was Poker Face. Too bad, his Heartbroken number is really beautiful and has never been on tv whereas Poker Face has several times.
I love this exhibition from Tanith and Ben. It is cheesy but I love that they follow the concept through from start to finish and that they aren't just wandering around. Which sometimes happens.
What is going on with Patrick's jacket? Is Chan using take 5 this season? Or did he just not think we'd heard it yet?
The jacket is all sorts of frong.
The skating is quite good, though, overused music and all.
This guy can skate!
There is still a chance - he will skate it today in Ohio and that show will be broadcasted too.
DirectTV for me shows this on from 1:30 - 3:00 but as of 1:50 pm there is still a movie on although it looks to nearly be over. Maybe something ran over and they are just behind. I need my Kween fix!
There would be a lot more skating if NBC didn't find it necessary to show a commercial after each performance. (wishing for the olden days of skating on Wide World of Sports)
More Yu-Na/Michelle fluff.
I hope they show Savchenk/Szolkowy, but I doubt they will.
I'm glad they showed Patrick's Take Five. That's a great program and like him or not, his skating skills are gorgeous.
They better not chack Lambiel's Let the Good Times Roll. If only one of his programs will get shown, I hope it's LTGTR.
Just tuning in. Sad to know that all the World Cup skiing will be shown on Universal. . . which isn't available in my area. . .
Nice to see Yu-Na's Meditation dress (and program) in HD. Lovely. Except for the pop.
I thought Yu-Na's program was a bit
I always prefer her competitive programs to her exhibitions.
So are we going to say that he should be penised for that jacket?
(old reference, I know.)
They are listed on the promo on our guide info, and some others are not--so maybe that means they will.
Yuna's meditation dress is so DOWDY! What were they thinking? Please, at least ditch the sleeves.
Love Tanith & Ben, but I would've rather gotten to see their 2nd program.
Yu-Na's 'Meditation' is gorgeous.
I have great admiration for anyone who can spin in both directions. Just one more reason to respect Kwan. (although kind of a dull program, but let's face it, Kwan is in fact in grad school.)
Michelle just owns the ice. I know there was talk about this in the other thread, but IMO, she shows Yu-Na how it's done. I kind of wanted to see the Wintersong program more. I love this song, though.
Kwan looks fabulous...as usual.
I can spin in both directions... on my floor. (not sure that counts)
Anyone want to do a two sided chi-square test for me? I keep trying to do homework during the commercials.
Looks like you got your wish
TG, I'm afraid that I don't even know what that is. Math isn't exactly my thing...
I can do half turn pirouettes in both directions. We're going for full turns tomorrow night
I'm trying to prep for a mid-term during commercials. We should probably both give up on this grad school homework until the broadcast ends
Stephane is so believable. Fantastic performance. nothing forced. What a charmer.
eta: his 'headless' spin is amazing. it really looks like his head disappeared.
It was nice to see Kwan skate again. She was never my fave skater, but I always thought she just had this rare quality about her on the ice.
Strange question, I know, but: Does Stephane have patent leather boots or something? They're absurdly shiny. (and whee!!! opposite direction axel!)
I should be writing my midterm as well...
Stephane! Now that's how you do an exhibition! My favorite skate by FAR
I'm such a fangirl for Lambiel. *Sigh*
Reverse axel followed by a modified double toe in the opposite direction. I can watch that move over and over!
Hey, I know what a two-sided chi-square test is! Well, I know it's some sort of statistical thing at least.
Not a big fan of GFBs, so it's a bit hard to like the duet. But nicely skated, gals.
Hero is sweet and all, but I want more Stephane!
Yuna skates shy in comparison to Michelle. She's doing the same arm movements, etc. but without as much conviction and presence.
I had no idea what I saw there. That was a good program.
I forgot this was on and just turned in to see MK and Yu-na's skate. :
Yu-na is a lovely skater without a doubt, but she doesn't have Michelle's magic. It's clear when they skate together.
I agree. When I was watching it, my eye kept getting drawn to Michelle rather than Yu-Na. It was obvious too after their skates were shown right after the other earlier.
Michelle is just a born performer. Like her or not, she has presence on the ice.
Oh dear, a dance-off. . . with a lotta white-boy (and one clean-cut Asian boy) skaters pretending to do gang moves.. . cheesetastic!
Who else thinks those pleather leggings of Johnny's are just all wrong?? They remind me of Boitano's unfortunate skin-tight leggings phase.
Johnny ... so stone faced for the bboy battle.
Did robin borrow Matt Savoie's friar tuck costume?
