    Gloves! That would be quite the ticket for sure!

    I can't wait to see Evan do something different...he definitely did need to make some adjustments.

    And no Spanish music! That would be even better.

    Well, Bolero is certainly Spanish, though Rhapsody in Blue couldn't be further from it.

    I've never been a fan but I am very impressed by his willingness not even to reinvent himself but to hand himself over to be reinvented. He sounds like championship material to me. It will be an interesting season!

    It was a different creative collaboration than he'd ever experienced, and he says it suited him perfectly at this point in his career.
    I was hoping Evan'd be more specific reg his 'Russian experience'. Did he skate in CSKA, or in a training facility outside Moscow (like Novogorsk?). Did he like it?
    Did TAT make any jokes? What did he do on his days off there? etc. etc.

    But, ok, it's not typical of Evan. I think TAT will probably talk about these things, next time she's a commentator.

    Whoa... good luck with Bolero. Even Michele struggled to overcome the Torvill/Dean 'it's their signature music' thing... and SHE had gone to Christopher Dean for choreography too. (Admittedly, there were apparently tons of changes from his original version for her as his programs are notoriously complex).

    Reinvent? Hmmm.... I'm not sure going with either War Horse music or "signature" pieces is such an 'inventive' way to go... we'll have to see

    Bolero is bound to be different - from ice dance (team) to single (female) to single (male) - all are very different disciplines so I have no trouble believing Evan's/TT's interp will be equally so.

    AS to reinvent - why not? They're not trying to reinvent the music but rather Evan's STYLE through the music. I'm sure they'll pull it off with flying colors as neither are fearful of trying something different.

    Well, it's not a bad idea for Evan to explore other styles, just as Johnny Weir had his "manly guy" experiment the season before last. You never know if something works for you unless you try it, and if this Tarasova thing doesn't work, he can always go back to his tried-and-true Macho Man In Black style for the Olympics. I applaud his willingness to step outside his comfort zone this year.
