    Sasha at Rockefeller Center

    Did you guys see Sasha just now, at the tree lighting ceremony at Rockefeller Center? She skated to Christina Aguilera's new song. Red dress. Unfortunately they showed more of the singer than the skater, but oh well.

    Gosh, when these ladies are out of the spotlight for a while you start to forget how beautiful it all is. If Sasha comes back for U.S. Nationals she will steal the show (not to take anything away from Kimmie, Emily and the rest.)

    PS. I mean Sasha wore a red dress, not that this was the name of the song.

    I wasn't aware of this.

    Sasha will not come back for Us Nats. Even if she does Kimmie will beat the pants out of her.

    What Christina Aguilera song is it? And I've never heard it before...does someone have a link to an MP3 or sample of it? (don't listen to radio any more...)

    It's "Hurt" - that's all I know. Odd choice to end a fairly traditional Christmas special.

    There was too much Christina and too little Sasha. But she looked good, in her God Bless America dress. I can't believe they cut away from her spiral. :sheesh:

    Well remember Christina's the more popular one so of course she'll be shown more.

    OK, I get it but to cut away from Sasha's spiral shows they don't know the first thing about her! Grrrr.

    Nice to see but not so good in the editing booth. Some of the lighting was horrible as well. Looked like the COI number. Got to love that lady in a ponytail, gerr gerr Now I know how cute those ears are when I am watching.!!!

    And could Christina's acknowledgment of Sasha be any more lackluster.

    OK, I just downloaded the performance from another forum and watched the coverage. I thought it was fine the way they did it- they cut back and forth like you'd expect them to, right? The way some folks were carrying on I'd thought they only showed Sasha once or twice for about 4 seconds each!

    That song by CA isn't bad, BTW. I might have to find that MP3.

    How do you know that??? By the way Kimmie hasn't beat the pants off anyone this year.

    No, because the point of the singer being there at all is so you can listen to her singing. There is nothing interesting about someone just standing there holding a microphone up to her face for three minutes.

    But skating is a visual art. Show the skating, listen to the music.

    Hey, so I am bias, I want to see Sasha more Some is better than none.

    I bet Johnny was jealous, Christina is his fave - source his favorites list.

    It acutely was pretty fair in time , but not such good timing in cutting back and forth. - incomplete spiral sq, and splits (Russian?) jump with no lighting..... I would rather see SC skate then CA stand there.

    And I do also think that was a nice song It is too bad that she has such a nice voice (over uses it most of the time IMO) but a ll I can see when she is visible is a "trollop." A pretty one, but a trollop none the less.

    Also remember we're SKATING fans. If they showed only Cohen I'd bet many CA fans would have it in for them. Besides, it was dark so we wouldn't have seen much anyway. Also, this was not a skating show.

    as much as I hate to say it, RD is right... tv is a business and Aguleria trumps Cohen every time when it comes to money and ratings... and that's what makes the western world (and American Media - whether they admit it or not) go round.

    Joe, if you scroll down to the post by saidie, you can read a little report about this event. I wish we could have gone to this!

    We watched Sasha on TV last night. I wish they would have focused on showing her more than they did. Can't they use a split screen when there are a singer and skater? No disrespect to Christina Aguilera intended.

    What you said is right but I'm not sure if it had anything to do with the way they arranged THIS particular broadcast. The piece was advertised as "Christina Aguilera AND Sasha Cohen" and during the broadcast I got the impression they were doing their best to try to show both of them equally. I think Christina got a little more showing but that's understandable given that the emphasis during the broadcast was on the musical performers.
