I still feel conflicted about the curve lift. One the one hand, it's been done before, but on the other, I really, really love the way Tessa is set down so gently and smoothly.

So excited to finally see a good quality version of "Stay!!!" Hope someone uploads it soon!
http://cs540108.vk.me/c322416/v32241...CCj84oByU.jpg? Little bit more romantic If that is psychically possible. The last thing we want is Scott rocking on his feet like a ship.
Parapluies, I do not know if you are realizing this, but V-M are already out-GOE-ing Carmen. Just a thought.
Why would they edit a lift that is giving them good levels and GOE? It is one thing that you don't like the curve lift, quite another the results they are getting with it. As for the second RoLi, they can work on this and I am sure we will see a new choreo lift by the TEB. They have space to change it.
ETA: That picture above is mid-lift. a) He hit very lovely edge while lifting her, b) She was up even higher. It's a level 4 lift.
Golightly, I'm so thrilled by the GOE Virtue and Moir are pulling - well deserved.
The rotational speed Scott got on the first rotational lift almost blurred the damn thing and it got the audience excited. The straight line lift is stunning. Technically, Scott's transition is spectacular, and then there's how Tessa unfolds/opens her body into its deep arch. She takes her hand off Scott's shoulder and with that opens her left arm/shoulder/back/chest until the movement travels through her entire body, her body is extended and she's in position. Just watch that left arm as she lifts her hand from his shoulder and follow - HOW she gets to the arch/final position is a thing of beauty. It's like watching a flower open.
I think Scott's comfortable in the second rotational and so is Tessa, and it's a mileage issue to get it under time. It's not getting stuck and there's no problem they're trying to push past.

There is another straight line lift on Stay, they one we just saw, that I love. It doesn't really fit the Seasons, but it is so beautiful I wish they used it in competition. There is also a very impressive RoLi on Stay as well, I can't tell if it is the same in the Seasons, but it has two or three lovely transitions.
Yes, they did Stay Its was amazing. I think they could use rotational lift from Stay for FD. They are so good in Swan choreo.
And two more highlights - Patrick exibition, i think it was his best! And group finale!
No! I missed it. And I posted the link too lol.
Stay was gorgeous. I LOVED that rotational lift and they looked very comfortable doing it. I also felt it flowed much better now because they have more ice to play with. It is a very beautiful exo, their most emotional perhaps.
I hope someone recorded it. I'll look for a link when I'm really awake. BTW great discussions here. I'm enjoying it very much.
