Kate Wang. Love her music choice. She kind of looks like she is skating in a fog. She knows she is performing, right? She has some lovely qualities, though.

Jessica Lin. Her face looks like Mao. A little too much "weight" in her costume especially to that tinkly, etherial music.

I find this song a strange choice for a skating competition

Marin Pierce. She has a rather charming demeanor on the ice. Lovely costume. Should probably leave her arms below her head on those jumps.

Levito has an amazing camel position.

On the other hand, she drops her torso so much when she jumps. Some of it is just massive knee bend she gets. Clearly she's very talented though.

She seems really slow across the ice to me. But she definitely hits some lovely positions and has good presentation skills for her age.

Do we have any idea why the 2020 Korean Jr champ is competing at US Nats? Other than there aren'tany comps happening in South Korea this year?

Claire Seo - OK - she can jump. Pretty costume. Well, the back mostly. Someone needs to ban over the boot tights........or at least deduct points. Well, that fall was right on the music
