I don't think Plushy has much problem with interpreting music and entertaining mass audiences, his galas speak volumes for themselves. I believe he feels he doesn't need to bring it on for the competition as he already has a winning formula (very strong jumps, agressive footwork, a few inbetweens here and there).. And I'm actually very much ok with that.. Putting his competitions and galas together, he is a complete package for me.
Btw, those sexy cowboys!! Yum yum yum! Can't believe I've never seen it before! Silvia Fontana is one lucky lady!! :P

You might not like his approach on the competitions. You might not like his programs at all in the competitions and the galas. But you have to at least admit that he is one of the exciting individual in the sport of figure skating. He is much more than just jumps. I am so glad that he is back and on the way to win the Olympics gold medal! I just admire his determination, his concentration, his passion, his athletism, his ...
Someone mentioned Kurt? I came running! Nice chance to see those two performances again.
As for Plushenko, I don't love him, but I have to admire him, for all the reasons Jennylovskt just mentioned. The guy gives 110% every time. Of course his jumps take center stage, but he's trained in that great Russian tradition, so he has good, meticulous posture and understands the flow of movement. Unlike some of the other scenery-chewing skaters of the past, he doesn't seem to sacrifice technique for the showy gesture. When he wiggles his hips (though I wish he wouldn't) or makes the "I'm Number 1" sign with his finger, he's not using that to cover up shortcomings in his skills. There's something to be said for that.
But, sigh, I'd rather watch Kurt any day....and there's nothing wrong with his technical skills, either.
That's debateableHe is much more than just jumps.
