    Thank you Ioana! How many languages do you have under your belt?! I applaud you.

    And their commentary...what emphatic enthusiasm!

    Sap5 I didn't notice his lovely a cappella until you mentioned it. This is why I come back again and again,...you guys have the most amazing attention to detail.

    Thank you so much for this, lovely to hear what these guys said.....WOW what compliments, calling them genuis! Truly amazing!

    Totally agree, the marks should have been higher here, not sure at all what is wrong with judges, this could have been 105 or 106 easy, I have to say honestly like these commentators did their marks at the GPF should be WAY higher.

    If D&W are close to them or beat them at the GPF with Tessa & Scott skating like this, well something is far far wrong..

    Thank you for posting this, they had interesting questions.
    It's great that T&S will continue to work with Jennifer Swan throughout the season.

    Not only in Carmen, but in Funny Face as well, Scott's lines and toe-point are fabulous. And it's all completely effortless, he's so naturally elegant!:swoon:

    The fan videos are priceless. Thanks for posting marikat and also for all your other postings as well.

    Its so touching to see both the open affection of the fans and how they are dealt with by T&S.

    I wonder which one is Pani!!

    Thanks. So my question is answered. Originally the FD was the SD and the SD was the FD. Interesting to also hear Scott point out that it was a shame they had to cut so much of the music out of the Hopkins music. I understand what he means as the whole piece does indeed have more layers. Still nice though but I imagine as a FD it would have been very very different in theme and choreography.

    Thanks for the fan vids........love them. I wonder which is Pani too. For the past few days I've had the Hopkins waltz running through my head and also parts of Carmen. I hope they will choose to perform all of the Hopkins waltz (with it's many layers) as a "show" piece. It is truly a beautiful piece of music.

    In the podcast, PJ refers to a movie I watched in 1954 or thereabouts. was Carmen Jones with Harry Belafonte and Dorothy Dandridge. Very modern (in those days) version of Bizet's opera. If memory serves, and sometimes it really doesn't :), it was quite controversial too

    Interesting indeed. I agree with the girl who says 'Carmen and polka don't really go together' I certainly couldn't imagine it. Scott & Tessa could so maybe it could've worked they always amaze us but obviously I'm just as glad it worked out the way it did. You just know if they had done the SD as a FD the 'critics' would've been out in full force. 'Oh here they go again all romance, lovey-dovey :blah:' They still try to find ways to link 'Carmen' as same ol' same ol'. But I figure this way during the Olys season they are free do do anything including 'romantic, same ol' if they wish and it works very well for them as we know.

    What do they say about Tessa doing choreography in the future? I didn't understand very well. It's around the 40-min mark.

    From what I could hear, Scott says that he really sees Tessa as a choreographer (I think Marina mentioned that in an interview too, a while ago) and Tessa says that she might do that in the future.

    Oh, I'm so not ready to talk about their future in which we won't see them compete anymore...:(
