Mariah was not dropped like a hot potato. LOL. She knew, you could tell on her face, she knows she got the score she deserved. I think you thought they would hold her up because she won Skate America and therefore she should automatically be a winner here. That’s not the way it supposed to work. She got dropped like a skater that failed to deliver a good skateI can't help thinking Mariah felt the same way Ashley did at Nationals 2018. Going into a competition with all the confidence in the world and feeling the federation drop you like a hot potato. To beat Bradie at Skate America then come 30+ points behind her here has got to crush her morale.
lol it was bit over the top, but it was fun to watch. I'd rather see too much expression than too little, but ya, with more practice she could learn to show some range. I have lots of faith in her ability to improve, unlike some of her compatriots.
Music suggestions for Amber? I feel like she has so much personality and the free music was too muted, like when Ashley skated to Muse. Not saying she should copy her, but she'd do better with some of Ashley's other music choice styles I think. And Shae-Lynn choreography - not the Zoom brand, the real thing .
As for Amber’s music choice, whatever it is the music critics will hate it . So don’t worry about it
And this cynically sarcastic post comes across as rude and mean. You remind me of a person I met on a tour of Turkey, he asked me why I smiled all the time. (My response was that it takes less muscles to smile then frown). Just because some people are genuinely happy doesn’t mean they’re pageant girl and fake.You can still be happy and cheerful without looking like a child at a recital who’s only directions before going on stage were to sparkle sparkle. Alysa goes over the top and comes across as a pageant girl
So how does it feel to be judged by someone who has no idea what you’re like? This is a young kid, just because she’s excited and happy isn’t a bad thing and you probably are not a mean person, but your post came across that way
