Thank you SO MUCH for posting this performance! I LOVED this program when I was 12--the music, the costume changes, the big ol' jumps, etc.--and it totally made my day to see it again. Midori is sunshine and rainbows and fabulousness. Did she know her target audience or what? : D
Midori does't have the elegance of line that I normally love to see in my skaters. BUT, I think she did have musicality. And she skates with so much joy and love that she wins you over. I'll never forget her Olympic performance (I remember it more than Kristi's) When she landed that triple axel, and it was like this different joyful skater showed up. She's a legend.
