    I'll allow for her to do that potboiler but if she stabs herself at the end I will put her in last place. :banging:

    I don't think so. She said in the same interview that she picked a piece that has loads of drama and ups and downs.

    Last season she did Miss Saigon. And now Madame Butterfly?
    I don't think so and I hope not...
    Personally I wish it is Sheherazade( did I spell it right?)

    Looks like great choices. Clair de Lune will be similar to her Nocturn program, and I'm excited about Masquerade!

    Very impress with the Claire de Lune. One would think it would be used more. Cynthia P. did a decent job with it. But Lu Chen was magical with this SP.

    Masquerade... Well it's not Carmen or another opera!! Honestly, This can be a very interesting program, depending on how it is choreograph (music is heavy, so it will take some craft to make this program successful).

    Krisztina Czako skated to a very nice guitar / rock version of Masquerade.

    Elena Sokolova is another lady who used this program, was "OK" but was to heavy to her.

    I am SO tired of top-echelon skaters choosing overused music. "Clair de Lune" is a pretty tune but overdone, and there have been far too many "Masquerade Waltzes" recently.

    I had hoped Asada would have chosen more challenging pieces.

    Wow, no Chopin for Mao this year. That's surprising. I hope Masquerade works out for her though. It seems to deviate a little from her typical music choice.

    There are 4 parts to Masquerade. We don't know if its the waltz part. If not the waltz part, it should be interesting.

    YuNa should try one of Michelle's musics. JMO

    Frankly I have no problem with skaters using so-called "over-used" music. It's over-used because it works.

    Good music is good music and only seems over-used to us fans. It's new to each skater that selects it. Each skater brings their own style and interpretation so everything old is new again. They have to choose music that works for them and, in this day of the CoP, music that will help them garner as many points - style and technical, as they can get. The tried and true "tunes" help them to do just that.

    When I get tired of the music, I just turn the sound down and watch the skating.

    Is it overused? I had thought it might be but I honestly can't rememeber anyone doing it in recent years - though I admit I'm not very familiar with the North American skaters so maybe some of them used it. I get the feeling it's not overused so much as memorable, i.e. the music is well-known and it sticks in people's minds when it is skated to.

    I don't know if the skate music list works properly - but if it does then Clair de Lune has been used about five or six times in the last 15 years (on an international level). I wouldn't call that overdone. The Khachachurian doesn't seem to be that used either.

    Except for the fact that apparently Oda is having the same for his short.
