    Let's not forget that this is on NBC today, from 4 to 6pm EST. Can't wait to see all of those senior ladies...and Jason the Magnificent! I hope that they also show the Jr Men and Ladies winners.

    Ooh, thank you!! Our channels can be dicey at times, and of COURSE now is the time that NBC decides it need not come in through the signal. . .

    Johnny tweeted earlier about how emotional it was. I think maybe they just wanted the audience to soak it in.

    Even on repeat viewing Jeremy Abbott's FS makes me cry.

    Hmm, WELL, Johnny felt that Evan and Emily never really "connected" and he "connects" much better with Madison. He loves them.

    The switch from Johnny and Tara to Scott and Sandra is...jarring.

    I stumbled upon this near the end. Gracie gold is great but I like polina edwards much more. She looks more like the real deal when it's all said and done.

    Love johnny. His voice is so....unisexual-male and female all at once. Easy to listen to. Tara looks good. Sooooo fine to see Terry Gannon!!! Whee!!:)

    I liked Jason's, and Meryl & Charlie's exhibition numbers the best, but there were many good ones. It is good to see them enjoy their skating. Nathan Bartholomey hammed it up when he fell at the end of their number.

    Johnny diplomatically refrained from commenting on the "Ride a Cowboy" number by saying it left him speechless. Tara said John was a nice guy. Terry said it was "like a Vegas lounge act" and then rushed to add "in a good way". Johnny finally managed to come up with "John is interesting". :lol:

    rrrrr i blew it and ran out of tape and didn't get the last 80 minutes taped. Serves me right for not getting another tape that i knew had enough time left on it. At least IN will have it up in the next day or two. If anyone can upload the gala on Youtube it would be appreciated.

Its funny because when he first came on the scene I didn't care for him much .... but lawdy lawdy has that changed since 2010!

    Glad some people got to see it. All I got at 4:00 was some stupid ACC basketball game crap. My NBC station did the same thing with the AA competition from Gymnastics WC last fall.

    I guess there's always Youtube.

    Mirai seemed to be crying throughout her program, then all-out bawling at the end (as at the beginning). She did crack one tiny smile somewhere in the program. I thought that someone said, in earlier thread, that she did not cry during her program?

    I adored Jason's and Gracie's programs the most, among the singles skaters. (Both are MADE to be stars in a show...maybe the next iteration of Stars on Ice?) And Chock/Bates, who Johnny seems to love. Davis/White, of course, extraordinary!

    BOO to NBC for wasting time in re-showing the competition LPs of Gracie, Jeremy & D/W. It would have been nice to save the 'space' for some of the Jr champs' performances. BOOOOO!!!!!!

    Andrea Joyce, as ever, wonderful with the backstage interviews.

    The Terry-Johnny-Tara Trio is the best thing to have hit US television skating coverage since Dick Button began his career in the early 60s. They said that we will be seeing them next in Sochi....so that may mean that Scott & Sandra will call today's Europeans Recap on NBC?

    According to the NBC Web site, the team for Euros will be Johnny and Tara with Tom Hammond.

    So more Johnny & Tara! Even if with Grandpa Tom, that's OK. :)
