    Gosh, it's nice to see Nicole skating and looking so happy. I'm really glad she's getting herself back together.

    Ryan Bradley was BORN for this format.

    If I didn't know better, I'd say Johhny'd been taking choreography lessons from Morosov.

    Whiny ballad for Sasha Cohen but what lovely skating! Those spins, spirals and spread eagles.

    Jeremy using a move from the Muse LP.

    Johnny looks like he has been training! I never thought I would see that again. Hurray! Nicole is looking better. Nancy looks like she finally enjoys skating again. Jeremy was made for show skating. Love Styx, but I don't find their music skateable.
