I really like this statement.. A kid who used to imitate her heroine's skating on TV is now going to skate with her in real.. What an amazing moment.."Michelle has turned down other invitations, but she and Yu-na have a mutual admiration society going," Shep Goldberg said.
yay michelle kwan
Although I'm really happy about the possibility of seeing Kwan skate again, I'll believe it when I see it for real (although an AP atricle makes me a little bit more of a believer).
I totally fell for that at the Lambiel thread at FSU, so I'm going to be more cautious now.
IB Sports hasn't announced the complete, official roster for the show yet. The official site doesn't have any info on it yet but here's the link: http://www.iceallstars.co.kr/
This looks like a promotional video for Yu-Na's show in August that may include a few recent clips of her speaking to the camera from Toronto: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMJQBjSuaqI
Got a problem with that?I find the whole thing a bit - overdone? Come on, the Kween didn't consider it necessary till now to delight audiences with her mad skillz, but now she will - and she is going to do that in Korea, the home of the new Queen of Figure Skating, the heavenly Yu-Na Kim. It is like before nobody was good enough, but Kim apparently is and now the Kween will pass the torch to the new Queen. It's all so romantic, and touching.
Seriously, even me being a fan of Yuna, I don't see it that way. We can't know why Kwan decided to perform in Korea instead of America, but I hope everyone will be glad just because she will perform somewhere.
Actually there was a little video before, where Yuna said something like "I wonder who's coming this time" (referring to the next ice show). I think it was about Michelle Kwan...
Yes, I found that video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XChaPCYz0H8
Released approximately 16 of June and first news about Kwan going to Korea came out 1 of Jule. We didn't expect that, really...
I'm sure there is plenty of payola in it for Danny,
If it all takes place, I would like to see a 'sister act' to All That Jazz. With silver fringe skirts and red blouses.
Kim, Kwan, Cohen, Plushenko, Buttle, Lambiel, Lysacek, Rochette, Savchenko +Szolkowy, Arakawa... It will be memorable two weeks over the two ice shows in Seoul. IB said they will use live orchestra music in their show! Very exciting.
I am positive that if Kwan as well as Sasha will be in the Olympics, if she so chooses. Mark me.
So all our talk about Rachael, Ashley, Caroline, Mirai, Kimmie, Alissa, Becky and Alexe is for nought. No?
