    Ah, yes. The lift with Aliona's face in Robin's crotch. The pairs version of the CrGB.

    Damn, I missed S&S. :( Had to check on my banana bread.

    Ewwwww, I like Lady Gaga, but "Poker Face" is one of the worst songs ever. Won't be watching that.

    Ha, TG you are RIGHT! Same music/album, too. Although I think Robin looks great in off-white. I think Aliona looked very. . . shiny. Extremely shiny, extremely bleached hair, extremely made up. I love their skating but could she just tone down the makeup & hair alterations?

    YAY S&Z! Perfect landing on the throw jump, as usual. Unfortunately now when I hear that music I think of this.

    Well, Johnny's costumes certainly get weirder with each outing. I think he stole a ballerina's tutu and chopped it up for those things on his shoulders. I doubt he could rotate a triple with those things. Just really not enjoying this bad outfits/bad music/minimal skating effort (jmo) phase of his career.

    I've always thought you had skating magic or you didn't, but S/Z prove that it can develop over time. And she is just lovely now. I wish that they have a wonderful, happy life.

    I try and I try to love them like everyone else does, but S&Z just don't do it for me.

    Me too.

    I wish we'd gotten to see Johnny's other number rather than Poker Face. Even if I like this number, lol.

    Same here. I was moved by their skate in 2003 because of Shen's injury. But I still find their presentation forced and somewhat inelegant.

    It doesn't look like he has any jumps but that slide is always good.

    I feel that way about him too. I actually liked him initially, but then around his 3rd or 4th season, he just got so meh and the costumes started getting bizarre (and not in an awesome Ice Dance way).

    That's why I wanted to see Johnny's first number, he fell and injured his hip right before the show and by the second act, I think his hip had tightened up. You could tell by his facial expressions and lack of speed that he was in pain.

    Sorry, Weir is not even original or inventive. Doing something that someone else made famous and merely moving it onto the ice is just so meh.

    Kwan's second number was really, really nice. I love the section in the end with all the hydroblading and MITF.

    Exactly how it went for me. The music started getting worse, too, and it just seemed like he never lived up to his promise or fulfilled his talent.

    I don't like this dress on Tessa. Like it should be cute but there is something wrong with the cutting/gathering that does not flatter her.

    V&M's skating just seems so...small. They really don't have the performance ability of most of the others in the show.

    Virtue/Moir are as dull as ever. Will they ever do something other than the "we're young and so in love" schtick? Such talented skaters, such snoozy programs.

    More Stephane, please ;)

    My friend is flying Korean Air in December. I told him it looks like he's in for a VERY sexy flight if those commercials are accurate.

    Holy hell there is too much Johnny hate in here. WTF? My friends and I adore him. He is very much an original and if you don't like him than move on. I can't think of why there needs to be constant criticism of him, his costumes, his music, etc. etc. If he's not your cup of tea and he bothers you that much then shut up and move on. There are plenty of people that love him. He's got almost 71, 000 twitter followers, second to only Yuna and that was a great standing ovation the crowd gave him. There were tons of Johnny signs in the audience. He brings in a huge contingent of fans so he must be doing something right. He was also injured during this performance and was very much in pain. He's been reported in practice to be doing all of his jumps. The striped costume may have made him look bigger but he is not by any means "fat." Jesus, you people are old-fashioned and stuffy as hell.

    Wonder if all those lights on the screen in the background were ever distracting to the skaters?

    Dig the Bulletproof tunic/dress, and I usually hate that super liquid metallic glitter stuff. Not so fond of the black leggings with it, but whatever.

    Every skater gets their fair share of criticism. You'll have to get used to the fact that your (or anyone's) favorites won't be an exception. This board doesn't exist to just gush over skaters.

    Maybe if you can't handle criticism of Johnny's skating, you should go to a Johnny forum, and avoid this place. If you don't like it, then don't read. And if you think FSU is stuffy... :rofl:

    I don't think "Bulletproof" suits Yu-Na.

    ITA about the leggings. It would have looked better with flesh colored tights.

    FSU is totally stuffy. I feel like I'm being transported to the dark ages when I read these boards. All of that to do over Evan's Body Issue photographs. It's one thing to criticize a skater and it's another thing to nitpick. It feels like Johnny gets nothing but nitpicking from people who are seriously offended or made truly uncomfortable by the way he presents himself. :rolleyes:

    Tanith's position on that rotational lift has gotten much better. She used to look, I don't know, floppy, on it, but now she's holding her frame much better. L&K really did a lot for their skating.
