This has probably been answered before but will gala practice be opened to the public?

Judges' names are out.

My notes on the men's judges (who are all women this time :xD:):
Tomie Fukudome (JPN) -- she judged Lombardia this season. Overall, her scores were about average for her panel in that competition. Doesn't show a particular propensity to be biased towards Japanese skaters, based on her scoring there--though she overscored Mako Yamashita by 7.5 points (and she'll be scoring Mako again in ladies at this event), this is balanced out by the fact that she actually slightly underscored Shoma Uno and Kaori Sakamoto


Salome Chigogidze (GEO) -- she judged Skate America this season (she also judged Finlandia, but I don't have data on that event). Overall, her scores were lower than those of other judges at her event. She seemed pretty biased towards her home country, as she scored Morisi 7.7 points above the other judges at that event. However, that's only one data point, so I'm not willing to accuse her of being obviously biased yet.

Anja Rist (GER) -- she judged Nebelhorn this season, but I don't have data on that event (it's next on the list once I'm done with Lombardia). No opinion

 

Katarina Henriksson (SWE) -- she hasn't judged anything this season yet. She did judge an event last season that I happen to have data on, however, namely the men's FS at GP China last season. Overall, she was a pretty harsh judge there, and she underscored the one skater from her home country fairly severely (though not atypically compared to how she scored the other skaters).

 

Tatiana Sharkina (RUS) -- so far this season, she's only judged juniors (who I don't have data on). However, she did judge Rostelecom both of the previous two seasons. Overall, has been a fairly average judge at the events I've looked at, neither over nor under-scoring substantially relative to other judges (though she leans towards overscoring slightly). She does show some tendency to favor same-country skaters, though it's not particularly severe in comparison to other biased judges. She did not underscore Yuzu at Rostelecom last year, however.

 

Joanna Miller (AUS) -- she has not judged any events this season, and I don't have any historical data on her. No opinion.

 

Deborah Currie (USA) -- she has not judged any events this season, and I don't have any historical data on her. No opinion.

 

Claudia Brambati (ITA) -- she has not judged any events this season, and I don't have any historical data on her. No opinion.

 

Lynne Dey (CAN) -- she has not judged any events this season, but she did judge Rostelecom men's last year and Skate Canada the year before that. Overall, she was a relatively lenient judge at SC but a relatively harsh judge at Rostelecom, so it averages out? :13877886:She didn't underscore Yuzu at either event but does seem to show some preference for home-country skaters.

 

Overall, nobody on this judging panel screams super-biased based on historical scores, though I would still watch Sharkina and Dey (though with Keegan and Misha they'll probably cancel each other out). This panel may lean towards the harsher side, however (though this is balanced by the fact that I don't have information on half the judges).

The bias judging panel is with the ladies. Andreeva is listed there..
