Berezhnaya & Sikharulidze
Shen & Zhao
Totmianina & Marinin
Savchenko & Szolkowy
To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.
Bye bye berezhnaya & Sikharulidze. Though it looks like Totmianina & Marinin are going
I didn't think this one would be so difficult! Who to vote out?
I vote for T&M too. excellent technicians, milimetric precision and gorgeous lines...yet they rarely emoted. Although their Ave Maria sp is one of the ages, they never had an out of the world performance in the free and I remember them kindof subdued
I voted for Shen and Zhao. I was deciding between them and Totmianina and Marinin but I went with Shen and Zhao because I felt like they didn't deserve their OGM. It was a difficult decision but I prefer Totmianina and Marinin's style and lines. However, I won't deny that Shen and Zhao were trailblazers who basically made the Chinese pairs program what it is.
This one was harder, but I voted out Totmianina and Marinin because of the boredom factor. I know they had more success than Savchenko and Szolkowy but Savchenko and Szolkowy are just too interesting to leave now.
Savchenko & Szolkowy are the weakest pair left by a huge margin and should go this round. My vote goes to them.
Shen and Zhao easily.
Technique > Emotion
S/S. Although they made the top 4 because the level of their skating is comparable to that of the other teams here, they almost never skate two clean programs together and have fairly large consistency problems.
