    I agree, I liked the NHK version the best for that move. I can't wait to see them perform it full out on Saturday.

    They practiced the bells move and the twizzles after the run-through and I believe it was the same as GPF but I can't be certain.

    I made it to Omaha in time for the Ice Dance practice. All I can say is WOW! Seeing it live is thrilling. When they practiced the highlight lifts at the end I had goosebumps.

    Impressions: Meryl is even more beautiful in person and looks stronger/healthier. Charlie is pretty darn cute too. But I really don't think his costume does him justice. And hearing they skate "fast" didn't prepare me for the actual speed and power.

    Also wasn't prepared for all the "celebrity" sightings in the practice stands. Saw Igor, Tanith, Tracy Wilson and Scott Hamilton. And I got a photo op with Brian Boitano and Ryan Bradley! What an amazing day. Now looking forward to the SD this afternoon.

    I've never seen them skate in person, but when you stand by the boards and elite skaters skate by and you get an actual "woosh" of air- it is absolutely insane to think how fast they are skating.

    I just realized. We haven't really talked about the fact that, if Meryl and Charlie win this weekend, this will be their 5th Senir US Championship, have we? That will tie them for the most US titles in Ice Dancing.

    Pretending I never mentioned anything about things that happen after tomorrow. Nope. Never said it.

    Shhh. Let's not talk about it so the skate gods won't hear! Not with the luck other teams trying for 6 have had.

    Semogal, I'm glad you're having a great time. I remember being blown away by their speed when I first saw them practice. Especially when they do cross overs together around the rink, they just ooze power. People on the internet always diss speed but it makes such a big difference live, I understand why it shows up in nearly every PCS component in some way.

    I was just watching videos from 2008 Nationals yesterday. They've come a long way.

    Meryl and Charlie were magnificent. Lots more speed than before and perfect twizzles. I like the change in the last lift and the end pose, how they face each other now. They keep making all these awesome changes. Best outing of Giselle so far!

    So it was possible to make that SD even better? I thought it was flawless already. Can't wait for a video! I love it to pieces, it's too perfect for words.

    Great new lift! The old one was the only thing I didn't love about the program.

    That was a great performance! They always find a way to improve. But I have to be honest, I liked the old lift better. Idk it went better with the climax of the music, with her swinging her legs quickly around and then gradually going into a spilt. But hey I'm no expert

    I am so glad they finally changed that lift!

    Their SD makes me so happy.
