    Beth Tweddle! I was so :fragile: when she didn't get the bars gold in London. This sounds like it's going to be a great show.

    I think I would watch this just for Beth Tweddle. Her bars are so amazing! Of course Ashley and Max being there are nice touches for me :)

    :lol: gotta love it when the gymnastics cast generates more interest on the skating message board. ;) Nastia and Beth :swoon: if you love uneven bars, mullets, and triple salchows you really should buy a ticket.

    Who the $#%! are Bella and Coco?

    Isn't this usually the loudest Disson show of the year, i.e., the one with screeching tweens? If so, it's the one that I usually skip. As always, I'll tune-in to the first 5 minutes and, if the screaming tweens induce a headache, I'll turn it off.

    Did Ashley drop out of the show? I don't see her in the photos?

    I haven't heard anything, but it's not hugely surprising if she did. Considering the review of the Legends on Ice show that said she looked tired due to it being post-GPF, maybe she needed a break?

    From the photos it looks like Marissa and Simon are up first in the show, and my local NBC affiliate is chacking the first half hour. :mad:

    I know no one watches these things for the "musical guests" but they are particularly unbearable this year. I was embarrassed for the gymnasts that had to perform to that AI pop reggae mess.

    About as usual; although I did kind of like that American Idol winner Candace Glover...she was pretty good.

    Enjoyed the skating...Max was adorable with James Brown medley...and I really liked Kurt's "Trust Me" number, he's such a great showman as well as skater. :D

    This was one of the best of these Skating-Gym shows in a long time, thanks to 'adult' R&B music, rather than the usual 'boy bands' and screaming tweens of years past. Maybe the Disson folks pay attention to our comments and care? Thank you, Disson. The best for me were Kurt's two numbers and the cute tribute to 'I Love Lucy' by Nastia and Ryan Bradley.
