    I didn't think this one would be so difficult! Who to vote out? :confused:

    I vote for T&M too. excellent technicians, milimetric precision and gorgeous lines...yet they rarely emoted. Although their Ave Maria sp is one of the ages, they never had an out of the world performance in the free and I remember them kindof subdued

    I voted for Shen and Zhao. I was deciding between them and Totmianina and Marinin but I went with Shen and Zhao because I felt like they didn't deserve their OGM. It was a difficult decision but I prefer Totmianina and Marinin's style and lines. However, I won't deny that Shen and Zhao were trailblazers who basically made the Chinese pairs program what it is.

    This one was harder, but I voted out Totmianina and Marinin because of the boredom factor. I know they had more success than Savchenko and Szolkowy but Savchenko and Szolkowy are just too interesting to leave now.

    Savchenko & Szolkowy are the weakest pair left by a huge margin and should go this round. My vote goes to them.

    Shen and Zhao easily.

    Technique > Emotion

    Shrug. I voted for dull & duller. Their souless robotic perfection counts as a weakness IMO. Torino produced by far the four most zzzzzzzzzzzzz OGMs ever. :blah:

    This. And I always found their emotion choreographed and fake anyway. :shuffle: I could tell exactly how she was going to react to the final throw, cause it was the same in every program.

    S/S. Although they made the top 4 because the level of their skating is comparable to that of the other teams here, they almost never skate two clean programs together and have fairly large consistency problems.
