Congrats to Kimmie on her choice of music (I can listen to that piece of music endlessly).
Sasha's is my favorite, but I also recall how much I enjoyed Kristi Yamaguchi's as well at 1993 World Pros ~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZOPMxMAfKY
I'm sure Kimmie's will be lovely too, can't wait to see it! I'm just glad that one-by-one every skater is announcing their individual music choices for next season.
Lol, I'm extra anxious to see everyone's costumes also, if not moreso! On that note, I have to say that the dress Kimmie wore for her FS program in 2008 is still one of my all-time favorite dresses (as well as the lovely matching hair accessories) ~ reminded me of the dress Drew Barrymore wore to the Ball in the movie Ever After ~ also it brought back wonderful memories of the dress that Ekaterina Gordeeva wore when she competed for the first time as a singles skater in a pro competition.
I hit my head against a wall almost anytime ANYONE skates to R&J. Sasha's was perfect. Everyone else's sounds like a hacked-up version of Sasha's, except very very few. I've heard a lot of the music from R&J, and honestly there are a lot of parts that I've NEVER heard used. I don't get it. I know there's another brilliant, awesome R&J program (or many) possible, which would be really original, yet we haven't heard it. Perhaps Kimmie will manage it... but I am not hopeful.
I seriously wasn't expecting anyone to risk skating to the same music Sasha skated to the former Olympic season. Why would you even want to be compared to her? Anyway, I really hope she'll keep her SP music; I thought her SP was breathtaking! Any news on that??
Hmm. Not sure how I feel about the music choice as I think something a little more upbeat would suit her style better. She seems to be a happy, giggly person off ice- why not try to show that off on the ice?
I'm thrilled about her music choice! I'm sure she can play lovely, sweet and innocent Juliet on the ice.
wow R&J for Kimmie? I could see Alissa skating to R&J but I cant picture Kimmie skating to it. Hmmm..... not what I would have gone with, BUT Im hoping to be pleasantly suprised. I do love Rota's version.
Out of all the people who've skated to R&J, Sasha's is my favorite version by far. Although Im also a fan of Totmianina & Marinin's program as well as Kristi Yamaguchi's.
Although it's Prokofiev's version, I loved Anissina & Piezerat's program of R&J as well.
Im looking forward to seeing Kimmie's R&J. Im hoping the cuts are upbeat for her version. This is her LP right? Isnt she keeping her SP?
And I seriously don't understand this concern over Meissner (or anyone if they decided to skate to R&J) being compared to Sasha Cohen. Forgettable choreography aside, it's not like Sasha's Olympic free skate with those two splats was all that memorable, neither was her worlds 2006 performance.

I thought it was a very bland program choreographically or musically.
We'll just have to agree to disagree.
