Here's another version of Yuzuru Hanyu's SP from The ICE
Impressive lists you have created here. Thaks a lot for that!
Kiira Korpi will keep her last year's SP Over the Rainbow and her free dance is coreographed by Shae Lynn Bourne also. I hope She finally gets her long program to work out.
I'm wery excited about the Pairs's this year. I hope Volosozhar/Trankov makes improvement with their coreographs as well as I'm looking forward to the new North American combinations - although missing some beautiful combos like Dube/Davison.
On Ice Dance I'm very curious how Ilinykh/Katsalapov will come out. They were just great in Euros last year but somehow lost their focus in worlds. I see them as real challengers for Zueva camp, if they only get their training and coaching sorted out.
Interesting it is going to be!
Can anyone confirm if Mao Asada's SP is Scheherazade?
Asada's ISU biography has not been updated with her new programs.
Here icenetwork biography confirms that she is keeping last year's LP, but does not list her SP.
So Asada's SP is in the realm of rumor, based on a performance that she did in a show was the right length and jump layout to be an SP.
She gave an interview where the following was said: "SP to a classical piece choreographed by Tarasova next season. The theme will take on a queen/princess"
That could certainly be Scheherazade, but it also could be Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Swan Lake, or Turandot, or any of a number of other classical pieces.

on Mao's forum there is a scan shared by tokitama--the newspaper article says that Scheherazade is Mao's SP. It mentions that Midori Ito and Miki Ando have used this music before.
I don't know which newspaper this came from, however.

Shibutanis' Icenetwork bio have been updated and state their SD and FD music as followings:
SD Music:"Batucada" by DJ Dero, "Skip to the Bip" by Club des Belugas, "Jazz Machine" by Black Machine
FD Music: Selections from the Sun Valley Serenade soundtrack by Glenn Miller.
Thanks for the info!
While they of course knew that V&M had used that music in their FD for the 2010/2011 season, I do wonder whether I&K knew when they chose the same music that V&M would be recycling their FD into an SD and using it too?
I don't recall what the sequence of announcements was myself, and I never knew and still don't know what was known in Russia and when.
Brian Joubert is not using last season's LP after all. I have read several reports of what he is skating to, but I'm not sure it's been officially confirmed, so let's leave it at that for now.
Does anyone know the music Florent Amodio is skating to? He skated at Japan Open. Did anyone recognize his music?
