Someone is wrong on the internet!
What I find fascinating about this and Kwan's FS that both had a triple toe right before the end. I can't think of any other program where a skate practically ends with a (triple) jump.
You know what? Everybody has their own cup of tea.
Therefore, each person's taste will be different.
You may not agree with that but you should respect other's taste.
Because it's just their own taste. Am i right?

I regret to say that I'm very disappointed with your post.
^ I'm not expecting everyone to agree with me (especially with all the Yunabots in this world); I'm just voicing my opinion on her performance. I'm sure there are certain skaters' performances that did nothing for you either...
About Sarah getting a standing O before her performance ended, don't forget that she was skating in front of the home crowd (USA). That is not to say that crowd would not have done that for a skater from another country (the Canadian crowd did that for Midori Ito at the 1988 Olympics).
Even though I did not vote for Yu na (for some reason the poll had her SP while all other skaters had their LP's- that's always hard to compare), I do consider her 2010 LP performance one of the greatest ever. She did not dilute any of her content, and she delivered. JMO, of course.
Vash, I agree with your whole post
"If I agree well it's just to appease you 'cause I don't remember what were fighting for..." - Sarah McLachlan
But Gershwin's Concerto in F isn't a fiery piece of music. Yu-Na captured the essence of the theme by being cool, serene and sophisticated - and performed it perfectly.
"Be with me always—take any form—drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!"
Yu-Na's LP is Vancouver was brilliantly skated (especially all things considered) but (in my eyes) is one heck of a dreary programme. She still deserved her gold 100%.
“Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” George Orwell
To be correct, there was definitely standing O after Yuna's performance.
Chen Lu 1996 Worlds FS
What I'm saying is that the performance was very reserved (as in I don't go back and watch it over again like I do for other performances, and quite frankly, I don't remember much from it besides that she cried after the program and her scores were . And like Jarrett said, the spark and fire were lacking from that LP) and IMO that Gershwin program did not display her artistic potential. Her Lark Ascending LP was soooooooo much better.
IMO, if Baiul must be up there for 'greatest performance,' maybe her '93 Worlds LP performance should be a choice, not that turd she laid in Lillehamer
