    Love the reports! I can't wait to see the changes in the FD.

    What a great interview with Steve Mesler. He asked very interesting questions.

    IN is streaming the dance practice from earlier. I see Shibs so I don't think this is M/C's group, but maybe they'll show them in a bit.

    Shibs were in the group right before them, so maybe they will!

    great vid TaBfan. It is so worth the wait! I love the spirals going into the step sequence.

    and their practice group is now playing on the Backstage stream on IN.

    I think the spiral is a big improvement.

    The video captured Meryl's gorgeous layback spin better than any of the televised versions--thanks TaBF!

    "You actually don't have to kill yourself today"

    I legitimately heard Marina's voice when Charlie said that.

    Love this...one of my favorite things about Charlie is the way he treats Meryl on the ice.

    Thanks for the upload TanithandBenFan. I love the little change they made in the diagonal sequence. I like the spirals as well, though I think they held the position a couple beats too long.

    Watched the B stream of their practice just now. Loved the spiral sequence they added to the FD! It's lovely. I definitely remember us talking about how we would like to see that from them. They look awesome as always. Try as I might I couldn't identify any of the other teams in their practice group! I'm sure I will know their names when I see it but it was funny to me sitting here trying to figure out "Who are they?" I will, of course, be at work tomorrow for the SD . Hate I have to wait a day even to see the on demand. But I am psyched to sit home all weekend and watch LIVE tv of skating!

    ETA: Beautiful practice vid! Loved it! Wow, that spiral sequence is so beautiful, love how they do the deep, rocking edges. All while looking at each other, yay! Thanks for sharing that with us, TaBfan.

    tapdancer I feel your pain re: work. We're supposed to travel to another school for a special speaker. Our weather could be bad (sleet, snow) and I'm kind of crossing my fingers for it to be cancelled.

    M/C were in a group of lesser known skaters. I did recognize Colin Brubaker/Alissa Aranow.

    I didn't notice the chor. during the one of the sets of bells tolling. I saw the one that accents the lifts, but not the one where Charlie originally held Meryl's shoulders and pushed her forward to the toll of the bell. (does that make any sense?? ) I think they changed it at the GPF, but I liked the original. I was hoping they would go back to the first version.

    Wow, that spiral is just beautiful, how they glide and especially the changes of edge. Very smart to make a special moment there. Brilliant.

    That spiral move is beautiful. I love how long it's held out, truly special. It's such a great addition! They looked amazing.

    They're repeating the dance practice on the backstage stream again, currently the group with the Shibs, for anyone who missed it the first time.

    Shan, is this the move you're talking about? I like the old version where they he pushes her back and forth too. Here, it's like a slow "Surprise!!!" which makes me laugh a little.

    Yeah the NHK version is my favorite.
