Yay! I cannot believe I finally got to see their performance during a live coverage and that I got to see them gain this big of a score advantage over Tessa and Scott. I don't even care it's past 2 am here, I'm soooo happy for them!
One performance away from you-know-what
I just looked at the top 10 and didn't see the Shibutanis, and was thinking, "Did they skate that bad???!!!!"
If Meryl & Charlie win, no doubt last year will be but a distant memory for them.
In the end, I just want the better team to win. If V&M outskate the Americans, then by all means they should win. But most of us were very disappointed with the judging last year.
Hope Meryl & Charlie have a great performance in the FD--not merely enough needed for a win. And I hope next year they get a really edgy, riveting FD!
That's the best I've seen the Shibs skate that all season. Fantastic.
And I know SD lifts are supposed to be simple, but I think every other couple has done almost the same lift.
While I'm over the moon for Meryl and Charlie right now , I won't relax until the FD is over. Gotta say, though, I did breathe a big sigh of relief when their scores came up 3 points better than their previous SB.
They were perfection tonight .

I'm so happy for Meryl and Charlie!! Great job on the SD--Giselle is one of their best short programs ever, IMO. I'm hoping for great things in the FD!
I can't wait for youtube videos.
Wonderful skate from Meryl and Charlie tonight. They were just perfect.
And for those who missed it, there's the program from youtube.
