    I'm sitting in my seat for the show. Not possible to have a bad seat here. We are 3 rows from the ice and not even in V.I.P seats. Definitely a show meant for children and families, tons of kids here. Glad I brought mine.

    Is this Alissa Czisny's first skating appearance since her injury?

    Overall it was a great show. The male gymnasts are so much fun! They totally out performed the ladies. But the ladies were good, too.

    The skating was definitely the highlight. Gracie, Adam, and Jeremy all had jump mistakes and had to retake at the end. Alissa looks pretty good. Especially considering the type of injury and surgery she had. Ashley didn't do any jumps. Must still be healing. She was great though. The Shibs were fun in their second number. The crowd seemed to love it. She is beautiful. And so is Meryl Davis! TV just doesn't do these 2 ladies justice!

    The real crowd pleaser seemed to be The Fresh Beat Band. And, embarrassing as it is, I knew every song they sang. :lol:

    I don't have a lot of specific details, and I apologize. But I just wanted to enjoy the show with my kids without thinking too hard about remembering every detail. :)

    There are a couple of fan videos on Jeremy's Facebook fan page. The ice surface looks like it was a tiny maze. It's incredible that anyone could jump on that. Looks like (and sounds like) a good time was had by all.

    Thanks for the video links (even with the screams) and report from Badams. Nice to see Adams curls coming back a little. Glad to see Alissa..hope she is getting into shape for Nationals.

    You'd think that after having to use it for exhibition finales all the time, the skaters would be a bit tired of Party Rock.

    I just wish she wouldn't skate to thin GFB versions of classics. ;)

    But she looks great!

    How many preemptions are there for this program? Here in DC the affiliate showing a Redskins special :angryfire & MLK special, and apparently in Houston they're showing paid programming :scream: I wonder if some affiliates can't show it for some reason.

    It's really annoying that Maia and Alex are being announced as former US junior champions instead of as World Bronze Medalists. Did the organizers repress this fact or something?

    And this is an especially unfortunate outfit on Nastia. Is this one from the tour?

    I am more than tired of this band and we are NOT seeing enough of the gymnasts who are way bigger stars than this group will ever be. What a generic sound they have and they have no charisma what so ever. Disson continues to suck with these productions. :mad:

    /end rant :wall:

    Dear generic bands of the world: Lyrics, they don't have to be this stupid. I promise.

    At least we got to see a fair amount of Meryl and Charlie.

    Meryl and Charlie's skating makes the band seem better than it really is. They are always good.

    $$$$$

    They can opt out of some of the "cheese" events and if they think they can sell ads on Redskins or get a paid progem for more $$$$ cheesefests are not shown.

    My area listing shows "paid programming" but is actually showing the Skating/Gymnastics spectacular.
