    I will never understand how people don't find Meryl one of the most insanely beautiful people ever. She doesn't look real. She's like a painting and Charlie the magical wizard with his magical wizard hair brought her to life.

    You cannot convince me that isn't a fact.

    I totally agree! And I've met her in person and she is quite beautiful. And Scott Hamilton agrees (see my sig!).

    Yeah, Marlie sounds so light and fun, doesn't it! (and it's easier to type ;))

    Check out the fan website, meryl-charlie.com under 2006. There is a video of the latin od performed at NHK.

    That's from the 2006-2007 season. The Latin OD we've never seen is the one from their last season as Juniors 2005-2006 :(

    I agree that Meryl is attractive but it is unfortunate that she has that terrible voice, sorta acute and unpleasant. But I do think that she always has the most beautiful costumes of any female skater.

    Aww, I like her voice. I think it fits her perfectly.

    Dai thinks she's beautiful...good taste that one.

    She's incredibly beautiful, haters gonna hate, and in a very unique way. Meryl voice is her voice. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It was higher when she was a teen, but it's mellowed out since. I even like the way she sounds in French.

    Heh. She really is gloriously beautiful. If you were casting ice dancers as Greek Gods, she'd be Artemis or Athena or something (because she looks like she could lead an army or fell a stag). I have to admit the voice seem to contradict the look, but I love it now.

    Count me in as another who thinks Meryl is beautiful. What she strikes me as is almost like a porcelain doll (in a very GOOD way).

    Meryl is gorgeous and I agree that she has the best taste in costumes. Certainly there are a lot of people involved in getting her costumes to look perfect but (as we've seen with many other ice dance teams), all the money in the world can't make up for a good sense of how to present yourself. Just because a costume is expensive doesn't mean it will look good. Being a costume designer's daughter, one of the things I first noticed about Meryl and Charlie is how well they are packaged as a team.

    As far as Marlie... well, I was hoping that nickname had died. ;)

    :lol::cool::rofl::swoon::encore::glamor::cheer::cheer::cheer::cheer2::cheer2::cheer2: Everyone who's going to US Nationals just has to shout "MAGICAL WIZARD HAIR!" as Meryl and Charlie take the ice.

    I was planning to go to nationals, I had vacation days saved that I could use and started looking at tickets and flights. Then my best friend decided to schedule her wedding for that weekend and ask me to be maid of honor. I actually had to think about it :shuffle:

    I love them, but I am so tired of SLY. I wish they would do the show version of DF if they don't have the time for a new EX number.

    I'd take a resurrection of any past exhibition programs at this point. :lol: Wouldn't mind seeing Billie Jean with their new passionate connection. ;)

    According to the program, that's the second song they skate to. I've never heard of that band or singer but the song is kinda catchy, perhaps they could use it the rest of the season? Of course, at this point, they could replace "Someone Like You" with "The Song That Never Ends" and I would be happy. Lovely exhibition, just not a fan of that song.

    All I have to say is that they better win Worlds for this much SLY.

    Maybe they're secretly choreographing a knock-out exhibition for the Olympic year.

    At least SLY is beautiful to watch without the music on... :rollin:
