    Vera looks like she could snap in half. She gets skinnier every year But it's not a bad program; though it's pretty much par for the course for them.

    I hope this is a practice outfit for Yuri. I don't think it goes with her outfit at all.

    I actually liked their SP even if Dreams of Love is overused music

    I think Larionov is wearing a skating " all black" practice costume
    like the some other russian teamsare wearing like Adelina and Puskash/Guerreiro.

    I don't think he'll be skating in all black

    Adelina is my sentimental favorite of the Russian ladies. Her jumps looked strong overall. I really hope this is her year to shine and she's moved past her nerves from last season. I can't wait for the GP series to start.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    Sometimes I think you are some future version of me. It's creepy how we like the exact same things from skating to killer whales

    I think it will become tolerable if she would just cut out some of the opening howling and the one in the middle - why howl during a layback spin?

    Honestly though, the program is starting to grow on me.

    Her skating is much better than in the previous test skate, but the program (music) is still awful. But she is landing more jumps than two weeks ago. So in another two three weeks it may be completely ready. In some programs the voice may be enhancement but here I wish there would be no voice at all...

    J. Plushenko looks different in this program, he was smiling a lot during the performance. Overall, a softer look. The Romeo and Juliet program went in that direction as well. He pointed out that the program is still raw and needs to be polished a lot. Hopefully he'll do that. Good for him to go for the quad Salchow again after so many years. Axel as strong as ever.
    He won't take part in tomorrow's last test skate, he said.

    A. Gachinski I liked that one. I didn't recognize the music. This program has potential, hopefully his jumps will get more consistent.

    A. Sotnikova The voice is distracting, I agree with many other posters. But Adelina sells her program well and she looks matured and grown up. She also said that she feels more grown up. :-)

    E. Bobrova/D. Soloviev I wish they would have kept the original version of their music, that is without the Tosca part, but in general I like the changes and improvements to their skating. They really do look different.

    It could be worse, they could all be using the Edvin Marton version.

    Loved Volosozhar/Trankov's program.

    Did he tell you he will keep this program with 100 music cuts instead of Miyamoto's? I cant believe this is not just for test skates and he abandoned R&J for good :/ that looked like a real program.

    Where is Liza?

    T. Volosozhar/M. Trankov SP Godfather jazz version
    A new and different style for them, like that much better than last year's SP. Back to throw triple loop in the SP (good choice) and add 3S instead of 3T. They said that they moved the 3T into the second half of the FS and do the 3S in combination.

    V. Bazarova/J. Larionov SP
    "Liebestraum" a little generic. Replaced throw triple flip with throw triple loop.

    K. Stolbova/F. Klimov SP
    "Interview with a vampire", cool program and ideas, not clean yet. Maxim Trankov praised them. :-)

    They can do so much more than what they were given. I hope this wasn't the skate that Morozov said he was saving that no one else could do I guess I'll have to wait to see if the free skate blows me away, if not the German's new programs may be good enough this year to win again.

    Not everyones lifts were ugly, I don't know why some were so bad and some not. I think S/K have the best short programs so far this season of the pairs, I hope they can execute them well.

    I agree with this - although I understand the need to make the change to something with a bit more excitement, I don't know why Tosca was necessary. Did TAT say that they had to use Tosca? Because if she did then I understand because they don't want to be panned by TAT and the Russian fed.

    Her improvement in these 2 weeks is amazing. Is her opening lutz supposed to be a 3/3? Lutz/loop or lutz/toe? 7 triples and 2 2axels is going to be very competitive content. Now she needs to fix her spins...
