    Thanks for the new thread. I was going to bring my old post in here, but the old thread is already locked. Anyways that article got me thinking about Worlds and how upset I still am about everything that went down. I haven't been able to watch the SD again since then. Hopefully reports from SOI tomorrow will make up for that just a bit.

    ETA: Everytime I watch the previous versions of Carmen I'm always waiting for the roar, but then it never happens and I get disappointed even tho I know it doesn't happen lol.

    Thank you both! Great lift! I can't wait to see the show! Soooo happy Sinead and John are doing the Canadian tour this year--love them! I saw John Kerr talking to fans at the arena at skate canada 2010 and he is an absolute sweetheart! so down to earth and took a real interest in the people he was talking to. (didn't get to see Sinead as she unfortunately was injured). I wanted to say hi but i froze and just stared at him, lol.

    Ok, so I'm just going to comment on Tessa and Scott's solo performances and the group ones they were in...and then overall impressions I guess.

    So the Opening number was good...T&S were in it...I wasn't too close to the ice, but love how I can tell it's them from far away just because of their skating

    They did "Stay" during Part 1... I was sooo excited to see this once I heard they would be skating to it. As for costumes, because I know you're all curious... Tessa wore a nice brighter pink dress I have never seen before so must be new, and Scott wear a grey muscle shirt!! It looked good!! Very contemporary but I loved it and it had their usual touches. They start laying on the ice...then she lays on top of him at one point...I was dying haha. Anyways, such a good program and lots of modern dance movement! There is even a new lift...Tessa leans backward doing the splits with Scott holding one leg... and they also do the temptation lift. There is a part where they do the move from Carmen going into the circular step sequence when Tessa like rests her head on Scott's forearm, if you know the part I mean. They also end with Tessa laying on her side on the ice and Scott sitting up next to her kinda hugging his knees and contemplating. Very intense and emotional program, loved it.

    World Champion number: Kurt, Patrick, Jeff, Scott, Tessa... Tessa being the only girl is obviously the star of this...and that is where the pic Sinead posted of her doing the splits came in... they kinda skate around the perimeter of the ice with Tessa switching positions while they hold her up...really cool.

    Intermission: They come out and do the Lindt talk...it's cute even though it's rehearsed...

    Part 2 - Carmen: Oh god they are so good. Their edges are to die for. I hadn't seen them live since November 2011 (TEB 2011), so I had forgotten how their quality of skating is even more evident in person. SO, Tessa wore a black one piece unitard (so good), and Scott wore his usual Carmen outfit. They didn't do the twizzles, and in it's place they do the Tessa standing on his legs while he holds her arms lift (the one that used to be at the end of Carmen that they took out). It was modified but pretty similar...they just took out the twizzles and circular step sequence.

    Closing number: Tessa and Scott get their own special entrance and do the Goose while both holding umbrellas...impressive. Then the number centers around them a bit and they do a slow dance thing while the others skate in a circle around them...

    Overall: Amazing show. Tessa, as usual, shone in the group numbers with her superb dancing skills... also, in one of the group ones (Come Together), Scott was wearing leather and looked damn good. Kurt's choreography is out of this world and the show is really well done. The 2nd part is definitely more lively than the first part though.

    -A. Wagner: Her musicality is amazing. I love her style of skating. She has two great show programs.
    -S. Sawyer: Entertaining as usual, but I feel like the backflips are starting to get old. Props to him though for trying out new styles of programs and being creative.
    -P. Chan: I feel like he's still growing into his "show" skin, but he did great.
    -K. Browning: Huge standing ovation for "Singing in the Rain". He is one of a kind and so loved.
    -J. Buttle: What a guy. His programs were just ok for me this year...but good none the less
    -The Kerrs: Doing a scottish routine in Nova Scotia was such a good idea Crowd loved it, they are so fun to watch.
    -J. Rochette: Her second circus-esque number is so good!! Better than her first one to "Crime"
    -Meagan and Eric: Wow, good for them. They skated to a "True Colors" remix and are definitely crowd pleasers. So happy for them and their success.

    But of course Tessa and Scott were the best of the night for me... Both looked happy and Tessa didn't seem to be holding back at all, which I was kinda looking for as I always worry/wonder about her legs. So things are looking good! Virtue and Moir looking happy and healthy

    Oh and I wouldn't be surprised if Jean Marc Genereux worked on the "Stay" program with them... has "So You Think You Can Dance" written all over it I think...

    Sorry for rambling a bit! I hope you all enjoy getting the details haha

    Woohoo! I was hoping you would post a review tonight.

    ETA: Looks like you posted it about a minute before I made this post. Going off to read it now. Thank you so much.

    A pause in-between reading just to comment on this:

    Seriously? I must see this now!!!
