    Holy shit, James/Cipres are freaking ON today!!!

    ....And right as I typed that, they lost their sync on the spins .

    Confused by James/Cipres' un-Pearl Harbor-like costumes! They landed their sbs 3S and 3T+2T+2T! ETA: And both throw triples! What an impressive season for them!

    clean skate for J&C!

    Now that they are consistent on the tech stuff, they need to work on their unison, polish, and stamina for next season.

    Wheee! I love James and Cipres!

    None of these pairs can do a decent side by side spin but who cares?!

    James/Cipres were really on, that better be a PB for them!

    Team France is also on in those costumes

    I think they were aiming for costumes that didn't look like what Volosozhar/Morozov had when they skated to it.

    ETA: underscored, just as they were in the SP...

    I could not identify a jump if my life depended on it, so many thanks to Sylvia and Cyn for any and all commentary.

    J/C still have a lot of work to do WRT polish, cleaning up their lines, her posture, and smoothing a lot of the "rough edges" (using the colloquial term, not the skating one ), though they could improve on the skating edges as well.

    Overall, a great skate for them. They wonked up the SBS spins and she double-footed the landing on the throw 3s, but overall, they should be thrilled.

    Ah, I see now that it wasn't a banana -- Team France is dressed like Pokemon characters.

    Still,

    115.58?

    Only .46 ahead of C/S in the FS?

    Hmmmmm......

    I loved the face and hand motion Cipres during the last lift.

    How was that barely better than C&S???

    Definitely a breakout season for J&C. Hope they can keep the momentum next year!

    Duhamel is totally off tonight. Even the in between stuff is more awkward for her than usual.

    duhamel/radford

    fw into triple twist
    sbs 3z, and she splats

    transitionography

    backwards lasso entry into straightline lift
    sbs spins best sync so far, excellently done.

    romanceography

    lasso into rotational lift w/ shoot the duck dismount
    sbs 3s2t, she pops the sal and bails on combo
    pair spin w/ change of direction
    throw 3r, and she somehow manages to land on one foot w/ deeeep knee bend
    carry lift.
    throw 3? lutz?
    FIDS, almost came to a stop during it.

    Shame about the fall and the pop/lack of combo jump, because everything else was great.

    If that got a 121, J/C should have gotten a 125

    In three seasons together, I have yet to see V/T skate an interesting program. And was that final lift botched? I think it's ugly even when done well, but today it just looked awful.

    It's a mystery. Considering this season's results, who is the French federation politikking for? Because it would seem the answer is "no one".

    I really like James/Cipres, of course they have plenty they can improve on but considering Morgan has only been doing pairs for three years, they're very good already and their progress this season has been fantastic. I hope they can keep it up(and that Morgan will stay entertaining like that!).

    V/T in decked out in pink and grey.

    Ugh, I forgot how this music makes me want to use a melonball scooper to gouge my eardrums out.

    Ridiculously high triple twist
    sbs 3s, and now *she* splats
    sbs 3t2t way out of sync, but the both landed it.
    FIDS
    sbs spins w/ one small but noticeable break

    angstography

    throw 3r way up and out w/ clean landing
    press lift, good positions from her
    throw 3s, slight hitch on the landing
    lasso lift w/ one-handed from him on dismount
    step seq.
    crazy insane lift

    pair spin w/ change of direction, painfully slow - the slo-mo on replay will likely look like a still

    For a pair with such raw talent, Tatiana and Max sure have some of the blandest programs around

    I don't care what V&T skate to next season, just can it not have a long posing section in the middle, and not end with that same sloooooooooow combo spin please?
