Was that lift the one they'd gotten a timing deduction on or am I misremembering?
Nope. That's correct.
If they had kept the same lift and gotten an extended lift deduction for the 3rd time, I'd have thrown something at my computer.
Technically not about Davis/White but close. Just walked through the skywalk and waited for an elevator with Tanith. She was very friendly and texting away. I so wanted to ask if it was Charlie on the other end of those texts.
When you change the way you look at things, everything you look at changes.
The SD today was just sublime. Their connection is so "there" in person. I was sitting near the kiss and cry. After their scores Charlie and Meryl hung out and signed autographs and posed for photos for fans. So gracious. (no autograph for me but hopefully some decent photos)
My photos from the short dance warmup and short dance are here. Also a few SD warm-up videos of Meryl and Charlie and a jumbotron video of D/W introducing the audience dance contest and showing off some moves.
I love the changes to the SD! It's in a class of its own. I can't seem to find the detailed score sheet. Can someone post a link to see the detailed scores? Thank you!
Love the new change in the lift. It reminds me of a fish dive. http://www.ballet.co.uk/images/abt/j...h_dive_500.jpg
I believe Davis and White can do just about anything, but I was doubtful that lift would ever look good.
Thanks for the videos TaBfan!! The dance video is Bless Charlie he tries!!
Ah, the US Nationals judges sure know how to send Meryl and Charlie off to worlds in style! Those scores, I swear.
Meryl and Charlie were absolutely brilliant today. I don't even know what else I would say.
What a FD! Absolutely amazing. I know there were reservations with it at the start of the season but it's grown so beautifully and they are working their connection like crazy. I can't get enough of it now.
As an aside, I dream of either D/W or V/M beating the FD record one day.
WOW. What a performance and what a score! Just a fab competition with just one spoiler, H/D off the World team.

I didn't know Meryl's hair is naturally blonde!
ETA: Holy crap!!!
I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.
