Qing Pang&Jian Tong New SP-The pearl fishers
Thank you for the video!
It's really nice music!
i loved their program, but why are they listed to have only one grand prix and not 2, for heavens sake they are the GPF champions.
If it is ISU doing ... BOOOOOO; or did they loose the position in favor of Shen and Zhao

Off the ice
Of course Pang and Tong have two GPs next season; their results in 2008-9 made this automatic. Look at the assignments: they will compete at the Rostelecom Cup (CoR) and at NHK.

Thanks for that Buttercup, I only checked the ISU grand Prix results and entries in tabular format, that have them competing only in Japan, hopefully ISU will update them

Thanks for the link. Loved it!!
Thanks for the link too! They look good! Go P/T!
Gorgeous program, love it. I always have a soft spot for P&T in my heart.
I love P/T's new program, they have such great chemistry together. I prefer them MILES above the Zhang's.
L'art pour l'art
Honestly? You could take Savchenko/Szolkowy's short program music and play it next to Pang/Tong's program - it would be a great fit. And the other way around, too. Both use very lyrical classical music and just skate the elements, I don't see any real connection to the music. It only looks good because Pang/Tong have great chemistry on ice, the same way Savchenko/Szolkowy's program will look good because they have great skating skills and speed. Those programs are just blah.
Fantastic!! It's a great program,,,,,and it links to the original opera story and music nicely.
I believe it would be better if the space is bigger and with their new clothes on. (hopefully their new clothes wont be as bad as their last ones)
Personally I like PT's program better than SS's, I wont say SS's program is boring, but it's almost there, especially the "clowns" look...doesnt really link to the feeling of the music,,,only links to the lyrics....

It's not ZHANGs' fault,,,,their coach should set them free and let them skate to some powerful and famous music rather than the folk tunes.......

Don't forget it, if you talk about "chemistry" it ONLY can exist when the perfect technique is there but you don't need to pay attention of that, because they make it to look easy and simple. THAT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING to reach that!!!!
This program is touching AND still figure skating. Great.
I can't wait to see the most interesting pair's programs for this season (Shen/Zhao of course).
