I see the Chinese skating federation still hasn't realized how utterly tacky it is to have an automobile looming over the rink.

Ashley just royally screwed up her free program. She needed to be at least 4th here to ave a fighting chance for the GP final. Guess she now has more time on her hands to prepare for Kansas City LOL.

Props to Kaetlyn Osmond for holding here nerve here and making the final.

If it's any consolation, this is the judges' wake up call to Ashley Wagner and probably at the perfect time. Two full months' training to get the jumps cleaned up and those spin levels up to snuff. This could be a new signature program for her if she can jump, spin, AND perform.

The win was there for Osmond's taking, but it required a clean 7-triple program, which as I've said she's never executed before. She went for the rotations for all of them, i.e., no pops, which is a step in the right direction. On to Marseille as the leading North American lady.

Great to see Tuktamysheva inching closer and closer to her World Champion form -- and a Grand Prix bronze medal to boot.

MEN
Voronov did 4toe-3toe then 3toe-3toe; I thought the entire 3toe-3toe would be invalidated for too many triple toes, but they only invalidated the first 3toe. I thought the whole jumping pass gets 0 value. Could've sworn that's what happened to Mariah Bell in St. Paul back in January. Max Aaron would've won the bronze under my thought process.

Speaking of Max Aaron -- nice to see him go 3 for 3 on his 4Sal attempts here, but it's the stupid mistakes on the simpler jumps: 3Lutz in the SP and 3loop in the FS that'll bite him. Given his PCS disadvantage, he's gotta nail all his jumps cleanly each time every time!

It's also odd that he's not maxing his jump offering to the best of his abilities. A solo 2Axel should NOT be one of your passes if a higher valued 3flip can be placed there.

Thirdly, he reportedly was adamant in choosing "Lion King" as his musical choice. I'm in the minority who actually likes it, but I wanna yell at him to PUT SOME STANK ON IT. If you've seen his Twitter, Max is actually a great dancer!! He could really lend it to that footwork sequence to "make that program sing" and really get the crowd going. He should watch some of Joubert's SPs and take notes. Joubert really riled up some audiences with some of his footwork sequences, as simple as the actual steps may have been.

I really like how newly formed chinese pairs look and perform. I think it did work on the end of the day. Zhang looks better with Yu and I saw totally different Cheng Peng with Jin.
Yuko and Alex had a good FP that should give them a boost after disastrous SP.

Dance: I prefer Weaver/Poje's FD to Shibs. Happy to see S/B to progress. Also cant help liking S/K, Nikita is a brilliant skater, they are speedy and have a good connection on ice. I would put them ahead of S/B but Victoria had couple of shaky moments in her FD.

I agree re: the Chinese pairs. At first I was a bit confused regarding the shuffling and was particularly concerned for Yu & Jin since they were just starting to develop as seniors. Cheng Peng struggled with her sbs jumps all of the '15-'16 season, so I thought Jin would get the short end of the stick. Well, Cheng Peng seemed to have relearned sbs 3toe and it looks like all were served well. They all gelled pretty quickly together and agree that the shuffling made for better physical matches. China seems to be making a concerted effort of bringing their pairs program back up to the glory days and perhaps just in time for 2022. As it is NOW there may be two Chinese pairs at the Grand Prix Final.

Kaetlyn popped just one jump in her FS, but she didn't completely rotate all of her jumps. The tough caller Shin Amano downgraded the lutz which she two-footed and fell out of, and he gave her a UR on the loop she fell on. The 3-jump salchow combo was a bit of a mess: 3s<+1t+2lo.
