    Frankly I thought Miki got a way with high scores because she put so many jumps in the latter part of the program. She has stamina. Her performance, imo, was nothing to write home about.

    Mao is the big jumper here. Her 3A will also register in the PCS scores subjectively. I'm expecting this season that she will get away from the 'little girl' look.

    Yu Na's lyrical grace may be hard for Kimmie to overtake.

    Carmina Burana has been done mostly by male skaters and ice dancers. I think maybe Emily chose it because she feels it fits her powerful style. The problem is that is she can't skate a clean program, her performance is way overpowered by the music. At least it isn't ballet music again.

    Her new coaching arrangement is probably the reason for the switch.

    It's unfortunate that she is skating to the same SP music as Mirai Nagasu. They will certainly skate the programs with completely different styles.

    better that than one trying to mimic the other's style...

    that's what's so great about being able to interpret the music, there's not one set right or wrong way!

    Just a Girl on Ice show in Japn

    "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:

    (ps - this is one of my first postings in this forum, which i always love visiting... hello and thanks to everyone here.)
    They anounced YU-NA KIM is scheduled to be on the ice show in Japan 14th Jul, and she will present "Just a Girl" there. I hope she could show her new LP, Miss Saigon, Piano Concerto version.

    zhang & zhang

    I read somewhere zhang & zhang are using the soundtrack of a Chinese film 'myth' for their long program. They are now creating the program with an American choreographer in Beijing. Not sure the name of the choreographer, maybe the same one of their past programs.

    Don't kno. I read somewhere long time ago, a former American ice dancer has been Z/Z's choreographer for a while. S/Z, P/T and Z/Z did not share choregraphers in the past. They all used different ones.

    I am not sure this choreographer is particuarly well known though. It seems he or she will also help choreograph some other Chinese skaters' programs this season.

    BTW, Chenjiang Li will also use 'Yellow River Concert' for his short program(is Bebe using this one?). I don't believe that's really a good choice though.

    I checked Z/Z's ISU bio, their previous choreographer was 'Gorsha Sur', anybody has any idea?

    Rene Roca and Gorsha Sur were American ice dancers (but if I recall correctly, never competed at Olys because of citizenship issues?)

    Well those do sound like good choices of music for Alissia. I love west side story. I may be in 7th heaven this season. I can't wait to see it.

    Well everyone has their 2 cents about Kimmie's comments after worlds last year. I felt she was saying that she was basicaly skating to music & doing some choreography she did not like. I realy think she was referring to her SP. It was ugly and everyone knows it. I think she wants to be more involved in picking out her music and choreographers. I think she liked her LP. She is still working wih Lori. It was that Morosov crap that did not go over well.

    Also I don't think triple luz/triple loop is a good choice for her. Why doesn't she just perfect the Lutz/toe combination? The loop is her weakest triple.

    you are correct, Gorsha Sur's citizenship was the issue in that case

    Renee seems to be teh go to choreographer for the Chinese teams right now... though S/Z have been using other choreographers the last few years...

    I don't recall S/Z using Renee in the past. I know they worked with Lea Ann Miller up until last year when Lori Nichol did their programs. I could be wrong though.

    Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy's new short program music:

    The next season has already started. Savchenko and Szolkowy debuted their new short program to music from the Asoka soundtrack (an Indian Bollywood Film) on July 7 at a club show in their home town of Chemnitz.
