    It's cute that Hannah did Singing in the Rain/Umbrella from Glee for her exhibition and Singing in the Rain itself for her free program.

    It's a mashup from Glee, yes.

    Hannah is another one I missed so I'm glad to see her! She's a cutie too and her program suits her personality.

    Hannah is a cutie.

    I was distracted by those tights though. Hopefully, someone tells her it looks horrible and she ditches that look.

    This little girl has spunk and I adore her costume. I would wear that.

    Even though there have been a lot of commercials, there's been less useless fluffiness and I like that they're not re-showing the LPs, so I feel like we are seeing more skating. Lots of commercials are GOOD. The more advertising spots skating can sell, the more likey we are to continue seeing Nationals on network TV. We as skating fans really should make a concerted effort to either buy and/or thank the sponsors everytime skating is shown.

    Maybe it's just because there's been NO skating for a week after a marathon of it, but I'm really enjoying this exhibition more than I have in years.

    This is the most out of order sequence of programs I have ever seen. Alissa skated nearly last in the actual program and here she is barely an hour into the broadcast. Really weird choices NBC (and I am not responsible for my actions if they chack Amanda & Mark).

    Loved Alissa's program though, jump issues aside.

    Alissa, you are such a beautiful skater. Why must you torture me by skating to this drivel? I loathe this song.

    wow! Alissa's program is captivating. the splats were jarring but I liked the choreo. Who helped her create this number?

    eta: i'm not fond of this music either, but A's intepretation was so strong.

    I've missed seeing that y spin in competitive programs. I think Siraj did one in her LP, but I feel like we barely see it anymore. Guess it just doesn't get the points.

    They must have reordered it based on least to most entertaining (in their opinion). Might explain why they haven't showed Jeremy yet, I found his routine to be among the cutest.

    That soft pink is a color that works on Meryl.

    I adore the Shibutanis. Their skating is mature way beyond their years and yet they are still so cute!

    Shibs bore me. Sure, they're cute and talented, but the type of programs they skate are just dull.

    I know there's not much they can do because they're a brother/sister team. And that's exactly why I don't like brother/sister teams. Too limited.

    It would have been nice to see her full program - Detroit NBC decided we needed an extended segment on the weather and joined it "in progress"
    Can't skate but love to watch

    I hate how they're equating North American with athletic and Russian with artistic.

    Why make that specific distinction as if it's always true?
