    Favourite performance(s) from 2012

    Which one(s) has been in your opinion the best performance(s) of this ending year?
    It's not a skating season so let's just pick your favourite out of these 12 months, the one(s) that, when in the future someone says to you "2012", you will answer: "That was the year when...".
    My personal choices are:
    MEN: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYkGYMYW69c
    LADIES: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOf6-8lT9t0 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOuaUMgFOcg
    PAIRS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QG64wuOb_AE
    ICE DANCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VIXdhXcAWM

    These are my favorites of the 2012-13 season, so far:

    Men: Daisuke Takahashi LP Japan Nationals http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtoUoiorSQ8
    Ladies: Ashley Wagner LP TEB http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TqAUEqlfXo
    Pairs: none, I haven't followed pairs this year
    Dance: Davis and White, Notre Dame de Paris , GPF http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DicTu6z-6AU

    If I had to go back to the beginning of 2012, I would pick Dai's Blues for Klook at World's and Ashley's Black Swan at World's as ties for my favorites, but would still pick D&W's GPF performance.

    Carolina Kostner's SP performed at Italian Nationals was a instant favourite of mine! I think it's my favourite SP of hers of all time!

    Elene Gedevanishvili's both SP and LP this season. Finally I could see her personality.

    For the men: Ross Miner's LP at NHK trophy because it was CLEAN!!! And he nailed it. I loved Adam Rippon's exhibition programs from yesterday ( 30.12.12) in Oberstdorf. If ONLY he could keep that magic and spirit in his competitive programs... he could crush Chan on presentation scores!!
    For the women: Akiko Suzuki's LP at the NHK trophy. In front of the home crowd she just sparkled and was clean!
    For the pairs: I have stated this before on another thread, we need star power in pairs! No one in my opinion has a WOW performance this year, maybe and I mean maybe the top Russian pair's 2012 World's LP.
    For dance: Cowboy and polka don't mix! I can see that many of the teams did not like the theme this year. I can say Meryl and Charlie's World's LP to 'Die Flaggermus' was classic and clean.

    If we're saying "That was the year when", then I'd probably have to go with Ashley's LP at TEB and Akiko's at NHK (she skated with such joy!).

    But there are other, smaller performances that I loved...

    I really love Kiira's short program this year (at the GPF is probably the best example). I think it's partly her performance, partly the music (I love Debussy, and I liked her interpretation).

    I also loved Ksenia's SP this year, which surprised me because I HATED her programs last year. I think with her choreography and performance quality this year, it's hard for me to look away. In addition, I have relaly enjoyed Elene's programs, if only she could skate them clean...
