the reason i stated thatmaos was off was because all i paid attention to was the music. you don't go to a movie to pay attention to the music, if all you hear is the music than you miss the dialog, the script, it overpowers the film. even in ballet music should be used as background noise. you like the ballet you pay attention to how they move to the music so the music becomes 2nd nature where you barely hear it or notice it .not where music is number 1 and the movements become secondary--it what is noticed with maos. i only heard the music and ignored or couldn't get into what she was skating or how. which is why it was out of zinc to me. that is why i didn't like it. her movements were more expressive but for me to no end. the music overpowered her skating. where as miki much to my surprised she skated to the /with the music so the music was secondary hardly noticable so you paid attention to her good skating.
btw has anyone seen Oda's Carmen. Quite lyrical and good.
and Weir's weird jazz(?) number looking like Yagudin should have done it?
But I have to agree in Japan it didn't look as good as it did in Seoul - he was lacking speed and seemed tired. I heard that he went back to Ave Maria for the last show in Japan (the one that wasn't broadcasted) and got a standing ovation.Johnny's Bluesy number was perfect. He's really come of age.
there's the link to Johnny's jazz number if anybody did not see it.
okay. I was trying really hard to be gafaw during this number as much as I LOVE that song.
1st... I never thought he was going to try and do an Evan impersonation! All black? Black glove? he even attempted the lengthy twizzles! (and didn't do the best job). I gotta say it was nice not to see him in a diffrent outfit!
bottom line, he looked like a fish out of water. Ave Maria was perfect and he only performed it at Nationals as far as I know. why change?

When Johnny first skated this Exhibition number Feeling Good by NS it was
in May 2008 at the Festa on Ice in Korea. I would highly recommend that you watch that performance to see Johnny at his best. Oh yeah and he wears white.
