    It was pretty much the same as her competitive programs, in terms of expression, IMHO. I agree that she made a lot of prograss in 2006-07.

    I think we have to remember that we have been spoiled by skaters like Michelle, Sasha and Shizuka who continued skating well past their teenage years.
    I haven't been spoiled by the above over 20 skaters. They should be agedly in the best for showbiz. I would say Kimmie at her age is better than Lipinsky, Baiul and Yamaguchi.

    Last year she was obviously trying to pay more attention to presentation, with mixed but encouraging results -- but at the expense of jump consistency.
    At the end of the year she said that she tried something new last year and it didn't work out so she was going back to what she new she could do. I took that to mean she wasn't interested in doing choreography any more.

    By the way, has someone already mention that Yuna's exhibition music is "Just a Girl" by Gwen Stefani? I think that's a really cool pick, considering lyrics like this is slightly more angsty and tougher than what female skaters often seem to go for:

    "Take a good looks at me / Just your typical prototype / Oh...I've had it up to here! / Oh...am I making myself clear? / I'm just a girl in the world...That's all that you'll let me be!"

    I can't wait to see a completly different side of Yuna with this one!

    And here are some interviews with Brian Orser and David Wilson talking about Yuna's new programs:

    Emily Hughes:
    I've Got Rhythm SP
    Carmina Burana LP

    Her SP is the same as Mirai's SP. That'll be interesting to see at nationals.

    I agree with Mathman...I think Lori tries to challenge ALL the skaters she works with...it is up to the skater to take the choreography that has been presented to them, and bring it to life as Lori hopes that that can.

    Of coure it is up to the performer to do something with the choreography. That's what makes them stand-out.

    I've seen scores of Swan Lakes in my time on stage and everyone was different yet they all had the same choreography.

    I've been saying for years that the fault lies in the skater not in the star coarches or choreographers.

    I was kind of startled by that brief remark in Kimmie's interview, too.

    I don't think she really meant it that way. But on the spur of the moment she must have been thinking, hey, in 2005-06 I concentrated on landing all my jumps and I won the World Championship. In 2006-07 I worked hard on choreography, expression, softening my arms, blah, blah, blah, and what did it get me?

    Or maybe she is just looking at the points. If she raises her PCSs from 7.75 to 8.75 in the LP, that's an extra 8 points. If she misses her triple Lutz/triple toe, that's leaving 10 points on the table.

    Kimmie's actually workin on a triple lutz/triple loop. I think this year she'll focus more on her jumps & a better SP. Besides,there's no longer the burden of bein a reignin world champ

    I think that I Got Rythm is a pretty good choice. I am not fimiliar with the music for her LP... i assume by the name it is spanish? Not too sure if that is for the best. Carmen was okay.... but a far cry from imbodying the character.

    if those choices are true about Alissa then they are perfect. She has already done swan lake.... but "the swan" is an ever better fit. Great job alissa!

    It's Latin! If you are interested take a look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carmina_Burana
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carmina_Burana_%28Orff%29

    This music was used by Anissina/Peizerat and Frederic Dambier among others. It's a little bit apocalyptic IMO.

    Isn't it too apocalyptic for Emily maybe??
