Thanks be to God--not because He let Michelle win, but because He let Michelle skate with grace and elegance, and "perfection" again. Never forget the miracles of God. We have been so blessed. Congratulations Michelle!

She has the heart of a champion, the soul of an angel.
She skates like a dream. I hope all young skaters
in U.S. and in the world will see what an amazing
athlete, role model she is. I am in tears now.

not only did she come from behind, she was first to skate, TWICE. what a ride she put me through these past couple of days. SWEEEET, sweet victory. not only did she surprise the nay-sayers, she shut them up and embarrassed them. the x-factor rocks! how could they knock her out as a contender? have they no faith?

i was hanging out with you guys in the chatroom through out the final five. all i have to say is that, you guys are SPECIAL. we are the best fans, not just for michelle but for skating. it was BEAUTIFUL. we didn't cheer just for michelle, but for irina, sarah, and angela too. Beautiful. i luv the energy.

i said it before, i'll say it again ...
she never stops short of amazing and inspiring me.

sing on my people, sing on.

a victory for the country. YEAHH!!!!

rock on michelle.
