She had downgrade issues at her GP events last season (as did many of the ladies) and it really hurt her scores. As long as she's having fun skating, I'm sure she'll give it her best effort. Yeah, her music is overdone, but I'm still looking forward to seeing what she puts out there.
    I agree her artistry has been more than fine, especially the last year. Downgrades hurt her more than anyone last year. Her short program score at CoR was uhm.. RUDE.. to say the least. Is her technique really that bad compared to others?

    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.

    The only dress that I only really liked on Kimmie was the pale pink dress with the illusion skirt and the beautiful flowers in her hair at the 2008 nationals. She skated so poorly, but looked so pretty!

    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?

    Where is the barfing emoticon when you need it? Perfect? Only if you call contrived emoting and superficial choreography perfection.

    Lambiel's R&J, OTOH, moved me to tears.

    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.

    maybe her jumps weren't that memorable, but her use of the music and the way she became Juliet in that program is tough for anybody to live up to. Similar to how everybody always compares every Carmen to Katerina Witt's program. Not for the jumps, but for the choreography and perfectness of the program.

    I thought it was a very bland program choreographically or musically.

    We'll just have to agree to disagree.
