Think some of the more experimental Duke Ellington pieces. Or something more avant dance pop like The Art of Noise or Woodkid. I think it would really stretch his considerable talents, contrast nicely with the elegance of his Schindler's FD, and make him stand out (but not in a what the ___?! way like this tango is doing).

    Ok, these crazy hours to watch these programs live are getting to me! LOL!
    I agree he'd be looking for something a bit more innocent but still full of passion and attack, it would definitely highlight the difference between his exuberant, energetic almost frantic style, and his introverted, understated elegant style. Right now Jason Brown is leaving him behind in the dust and the best thing he can do is cling on by displaying a diverse artistic ability with contrasting programs.

    You're telling me about crazy hours? I'm getting up at 4am on Saturday, to watch the Ladies Free Skating, and only three of my favourites are competing!

    Black pants, black vest with white front, red pocket square

    4T - twofooted, looked << in replay

    Mistakes on the first two jumping passing. If he get full credit for the quad, I think it's be enough for 1st, otherwise close 2nd

    Tanaka's jumping technique isn't good enough, the pops weren't surprising considering how much upper body movement he puts into his jumps and the mule kick.

    I don't think Adam wants to be here to be honest. He probably just wants the season to end.

    Oh, Adam, breaking my heart. I will say, things looked super-tense between Rafael and Adam in the K&C at Nationals. Maybe that's only understandable given how the event turned out for Adam. I think it's sad if those two are parting... But yeah, my guess would his heart is not in it. :( :(
