    It's possible Carolina changed it, but up until now, she has skated to Jeff Buckley's cover of Hallelujah, not Rufus Wainwright's.

    Hallelujah has been so overdone. Yuna could really push her boundaries as a pro but she is very predictable. I'd love to see her in an improv format with music that would be uncharacteristic. Sounds like a decent show. One can always count on Stephane. Not much earthshaking here, but those Korean crowds are a great show all by themselves. Wish I could sit in!

    Yuna is reincarnating herself as a MAN in All of Me gala, so, predictable?

    Except for Czisny and Korean skaters not named Yuna Kim, the entire lineup is comprised of current and former World and Olympic Champions and a Pair of Worlds Silver medalists (V/T). What a prestigious event in be in and to experience live.

    Some champion attributes have to rub off on Alissa.

    eta. OK, Basedin/polishchuk are not Worlds or Olympic champions. They are a class by themselves.

    Honestly, cross-dressing and other outlandish costumes is nothing new in figure skating. Skaters have dressed themselves in more surprising/shocking ways. I think her choice of gala music is still too predictable (or is it Wilson's?). If I recall correctly, as her choreographer Wilson is largely responsible for these pop music selections, which I'm not a fan of. Yuna was actually the one who selected her more classical gala piece "Meditation".

    I agree on the improv format with music would be a good practice and challenge to the skaters, but name one who's currently doing this?

    I wish they make it into a improv competition actually someday, it would be fun!

    Do you love improv competitions? I don't. I think Jeffrey Buttle was the only one who could do that as if he has trained for his programs for a week. Mostly we saw so far in Improv Ice were bad quality choreographs and skatings.

    5. Patrick Chan -- Elegie in E Flat Minor by Rachmaninov
    6. Carolina Kostner -- Hallelujah by Rufus Wainwright

    How the heck are you going to top the current world champions?

    Yeah, the order is quite unfortunate for him.
