    Ah. Thanks for filling me in -- since I never watch Galas, I had no clue that they did that.

    Jeremy! .

    This song is called "I Won't Give Up" -- foreshadowing for next season?

    Loved Max's program...he's becoming quite the showman! Training with Ryan Bradley is rubbing off on him.

    EDIT: Didn't Michael Weiss once skate to "Black Betty?"

    He's allowed to skate to angsty ballads. The herd of twee skaters? Not so much.

    ******

    Surely we can't be the only ones watching this . Where is everyone?

    When Jeremy is ON he's a glorious skater to watch.

    A gala with no French/Italian/Spanish skaters is not worth watching.

    Denis Ten skated well. He should have borrowed Mao's umbrella for his Singing in the Rain number.

    EDIT: Very charming number from Mao.

    I've officially reached my quota for the decade for Mary Poppins programs.

    I'm pretty sure my Mom had the same exact dress as Mao; however, she wore it in 1946, when she was 5 years old .

    ********

    Introduction of Team USA.

    Really, guys? New York, New York.....seriously?

    [Chandler Bing]Could y'all *BE* any more unoriginal? .[/Chandler Bing]

    Compared to Team Japan's intro, Team USA's choreography looks like a disorganized, hot-ass mess

    ********

    What's up next? If this doesn't pick up, I'm going to go and watch Katt William's Pimp Chronicles on Comedy Central.

    ....Erm, didn't they play this already when Team Japan came out? Or are they about to Zamboni the ice? Totally confused .

    Not a horrible group number from Team USA. I liked the spins to end.

    I'm not going to make it through the intermission. So good night all (or the 2 or 3 people watching ).

    Damn, you beat me to it -- I've been up for almost 50 hours straight and was about to sign off, crawl in the bed, and crash while watching TV.

    Who's skating now & why don't they rate close camera shots?

    OK, one looks like a mascot dressed as a panda?

    Was that Celine singing? It sounded more like Belgian singer Lara Fabian to me.

    EDIT: And we're back w/Cinquanta....

    Gracie skated very nicely to Alicia Keys...This Girl Is On Fire.

    Dennis Ten certainly doesn't disappoint. A very passionate skate from him. Bravo.

    YES!!!
    I was thinking- is anybody else watching?
    It was a stunner of an EX from Denis. Quite Lambiel- esque in intensity, fluidity and beauty. Just Wow.

    That pair had a rocky skate, too.

    Ashley skated well...showing her own bad self to a remix of "Sweet Dreams" by the Eurythmics.

    And Josh Groban returns (in spirit) to sing for Denis Ten. (sang earlier for Reed & Reed).

    EDIT: A lovely skate by Chock & Bates...& they get an encore.
