Quite a lot actually but I wasn't able to keep up with all the blog and twitter reports. They performed this season's SP to 'Samson and Delilah' and LP to 'Les Misérables'. Quite a number of skaters debuted their programs for the upcoming Olympic season. There's supposed to be a broadcast of the Aichi shows which were held on July 24-25 (but only 85 min worth of the whole thing) by a local broadcasting station, Chukyo TV today. I suppose most of us are waiting for some kind soul(s) who'll upload the videos. I've made a list of the programs the participating skaters performed throughout the six 'THE ICE' shows purely based on online reports and news clips:

1. Mao Asada: SP (Chopin's 'Nocturne')/ EX ([URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Gi9QRCIoSQ"]'Smile & What a wonderful world' by Ima[/URL])
2. Takahiko Kozuka: SP ('Unsquare Dance')/ EX ([URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tqjl4nRSorM"]'Bang Bang' by will.i.am[/URL])
3. Jeffrey Buttle: 'In This Shirt' by The Irrepressibles/ unidentified New Program
4. Satoko Miyahara: Show version of LP ('[URL="http://sankei.jp.msn.com/sports/news/130725/oth13072520200015-n1.htm"]Poeta[/URL]')/ last season's Mambo EX/ SP ([URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mfyCI82lWM"]'Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence'[/URL])/ EX ('Solace' by Vanessa Mae)
5. Narumi Takahashi & Ryuichi Kihara: SP ('Samson & Delilah')/ LP ('Les Misérables')
6. Takahito Mura: SP ('Jumping Jack + Minnie the Moocher')/ EX (Phantom of the Opera/Love never dies 'Till I hear you sing')
7. Adelina Sotnikova: SP ('Carmen')/ EX ([URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Du1WGPlx4RA"]A. PIAZZOLLA: Oblivion[/URL])
8. Maxim Kovtun: SP (Spanish Flamenco music)/ EX (some song with lyrics, summertime?)
9. Gracie Gold: EX (Chicago's 'All That Jazz'). She mentioned on [URL="http://www.teamusa.org/Team-USA-Winter-Bloggers/Gracie-Gold/The-Season-Begins#.UeYSIe4ZSlJ.twitter"]TEAM USA blog[/URL] that she was asked to prepare two programs for the ICE and planned to also skate to 'Girl on Fire' by Alicia Keys. I'm not sure whether she ever got the chance to perform it at all.
10. Jeremy Abbott: Last season's LP ('Bring Him Home' with lyrics) / 2011-2012 and this season's LP ('Exogenesis')
11. Javier Fernandez: EX ('Aerobic Class')/ last season's LP ('Charlie Chaplin Medley')
12. Kevin Reynolds: EX ([URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o661KZwx2JQ"]Sakamichi no Apollon[/URL] [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNVDcV7ldM8"]'But not for me Jazz Festival Version'[/URL])/ 'Hungarian Rhapsody' with violin & cello arrangement (possibly his new LP?)
13. Mirai Nagasu: EX? (on some piano music, choreographed by Adam Rippon)
14. Maia & Alex Shibutani: unidentified but they've already performed two programs
15. Kanako Murakami: Sarah Bareilles 'King of Anything'
16. Kaitlyn Weaver & Andrew Poje: last season's FD/ EX (dressed in indigenous Canadian clothing)
17. Women's group number: [URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qsy7kJyizoc"]'Bom Bom' by Sam and the Womp[/URL]
18. Men's group number: unidentified (of contemporary/modern dance variety, wore skates on their right feet only)

ETA: The music for Mirai's EX is probably [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIcCV7e-6OA"]'On Golden Pond' by David Grusin[/URL].
Opening number: Coldplay - 'Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall'
The music for the second program Jeff performed: 'Just in Time'
