    NOw, while I have voted for Tara the last 2 rounds and I still enjoy her skating the least of all the skaters left, there's something very wrong with Meltdown Queen Carolina Kostner surviving for half of this game.

    She NEEDS to go now!! Bye Carolina.

    I voted Shizuka for reasons already stated. I don't know if Kostner's recent success is a fluke, or if she is a late bloomer with more success to come.

    Frankly it's beyond me how Kostner has gotten this far. She must have more fans here than I thought/expected...

    Honestly, it's her turn this time.

    I clicked on what I thought was a link to an image of Butyrskaya and found a map of Turkey instead.

    ETA: Never mind. It works now.

    Voting for Kostner again...

    Well, now that Maria is gone, it's gotta be Carolina.

    I don't get why people want Tara out now. Maybe she didn't have longevity, but saying she's worse than Kostner? *shakes head*

    *gasp* someone voted for Kwan? I still think she's going to eventually win though.

    Voted for Carolina again. Again, I like her a lot, she's a worthy World champ, but in terms of accomplishments, consistency, etc., she's a step behind the other ladies on this poll.

    Carolina again, she should have gone two rounds ago. *Although I was very happy for her when she won Worlds this year.

    I'd argue Kostner should have been out from round 2...Hughes & Ando went out too early IMHO.

    i didn't really care about tara's longevity. it's really her presentation and skating skills that irks me.

    I love Caro and hate to vote for her, but she is now the weakest on this list IMHO too. Kostner be gone.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    I tried to be objective. It's difficult because all those girls are amazing in their own way, even if I don't like certain skaers' style !

    My vote goes, sadly, to Tara Lipinski.

    as we talk about skating champions, skating skills are really important, and Taras are weak. It's her turn now

    I cannot believe that two skaters with as much personality as Ando and Butyrskaya (often wrong-headed but they've got it to spare) got the axe while a skater like Kostner (either stumbling, boring or stumbling and boring is still around....

    If Kostner doesn't go this time then it's a poor verdict on the voters.
