    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?

    Yeah, the order is quite unfortunate for him.

    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.

    Another correction: Up until now, Lambiel has been skating to live musicians performing a version of My Body is a Cage that is based on Peter Gabriel's cover of it, and not the Arcade Fire original. I presume in All That Skate, Lambiel will either skate to Gabriel's recording, or live musicians emulating it.

    I can't wait to see it! As soon as I heard Gabriel's cover I've been dying to see someone skate to it. And lo and behold the skater I consider the greatest living artist on ice answers the call! I've seen videos of it before, but I'm hoping the Korean broadcast will feature better camera work and direction than what I've seen so far (which has been pretty shoddy).

    Kudos to Jin-Seo Kim for picking music actually released this year to skate to! Even if it is the horribly derivative Fantastic Baby.

    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".

    Don't know anything more, sorry. But according to the interview during the press conference for her shows, Yuna said that when Wilson suggested this music, she had a problem deciding how to present this man-song suitably and she thought, "Why not as a man?!"
