The women at NHK are on NBC right now. I turned the broadcast on in the middle, so I don't know if there's been any dance, or if they might squeeze in the top 2 teams at the end. Here's hoping.

NBC started their NHK broadcast with Starr Andrews' clean SP and even showed Chock/Bates' entire FD! :)

NBC started their NHK broadcast ...

Was it me, or was anyone else surprised/confused that NBC/Andrea Joyce seemed to refer to Lumē (deodorant) as if it were a title sponsor for NHK Trophy? 🤨

Getting a kick out of the NBC team's "Eezabeau" pronunciation. It's not an Italian name, guys, you don't have to try for an Italian accent. :lol:

Isn't it Italian, though? Her mom is from Italy. (Side note here- I took French for many years and know Isabeau has a literal French translation).

ETA- looked it up and she's named after a character in Ladyhawke, which takes place in medieval Italy. But the character is from France so maybe it's how her mom may pronounce it?

Isabeau herself can be heard saying her own name in this 2020 video (at approx. 0:22).
I would transcribe Isabeau's own pronunciation as IZ-uh-boh.


And BTW, Ilia himself uses an Americanized pronunciation of his last name -- MAL-ih-nin -- at least when speaking in the U.S.
At U.S. Classic this year, I asked him to say his last name for me, and he said it exactly as he does in the World Ice Skating Day video below. (Sorry, he does not appear until the very end of the video, but I do not have links to better videos for pronunciation purposes at my fingertips.)
