    Miki Ando for sure. She's SO BORING!!

    Honourable mention to Rachael.. although I did notice she took some of the cutesy faces out of her long program. The faces do fit with her SP, but not in her long because the music is Slaughterhouse on Fifth Avenue or whatever, and she's like grinning from ear to ear.. I was like wtf?!

    IMO Rippon and Kozuka already have excellent presentation.

    The first, boring as hell.
    The second, so old fashioned.
    The last, it's not FS ! Reminds me too much of Plushenko. Too much posing, no transition.
    You know the funny thing is, I actually think he has more transitions than Plushenko did.

    For SP, Miki definitely needs a new one. It does NOTHING for her. But yeah, I love her LP, I think she shows emotion in a very subtle way and actually I find the simplicity quite refreshing (no windmill arms and so on). and I really like Rippon a lot due to many reasons

    But my pick was Iliushechkina/Maisuradze. Someone needs to get inside their heads and somehow switch their perception of interpreting music. I get absolutely nothing of them. But it could be just me and my weird taste.

    Is Bazaraova up on the list because of her rumored eating disorder?

    I noticed that Andrei Griazev isn't on this list. Classic case of a very talented skater whose career hasn't gone anywhere. Has he retired from competition?

    I picked Ilu/Maisurazde, they are very talented but do need some decent coreography, possibly more simple but controlled -and matching costumes

    No, and this is the first I've heard of that. None of these are personal interventions- just interventions based on their boring music/programs/skating.

    I think Asada is on the right track. I think Sato knows what he's doing and fixing jumps take times, especially when she's seems to be fixing quite a number of them.
    I have to say that her LP at TEB was the first time that her skating really moved me emotionally. I always had the impression that despite moving beautifully she kind of just skated through the music. But her performance at TEB was just musical and sublime. She never gave up on the performance even with all the popped jumps. She'll get better, I know it
