    I like the modern take on the concept with the shift dress and unitard. It's certainly unorthodox in terms of presentation. We often get so many literal interpretations that this one is refreshing.

    Ilya Averbukh and company "Ice Symphony" together with the Russian Figure Skating Federation represent Gala concert "WE - THE CHAMPIONS".

    The show will be held April 27, 2014 at Small Sports Arena "Luzhniki". Starting at 18.00..
    Thanks for the reference. Just bought the tickets. There is still quite a good availability. I think prices could be better. They range from $25 to $200. But where else could one see Slutskaia live? I wonder what she is capable of these days.

    But who is supposed to drive the crowd is quite obvious from the show's banner: http://ice-show.ru/proekty/gala-konc...chempiony.html

    Great performance, I loved it, but make sure you stay away from the comments. I am surprised to see thugs in the figure skating world. Worse than European soccer. Liverpool would be proud! I guess Yuna should be proud of her fans too

    Adelina seems to catch some essences of modern dance.

    It is bit rough though, some refinement is needed, just like most of her programs.

    I agree. I was being sarcastic up there. Guess it didn't work. I was disappointed and appalled at her performance.

    While I do think that Sotnikova's performance here is nowhere near refinement, I am baffled by the comments. I guess even Yuna would find these comments unnecessarily vicious.

    I think you're offending Liverpool fans by comparing them with those so called figure skating fans.

    True, they are not figure skating fans but crazy ubers blind by nationalism.

    Putin has a meeting with the ISU tech panel in regards to next years GP series on that day. All these talented jumping beans are really beginning to cut into his work week.

    I don't think you are disappointed at all. You made it very clear before (in those replicas of topics about how bad she is, and how she "stoled" the OGM) that you were appalled by her performance.
    So I really don't know what are you doing in this topic. Do you want to transform this in another bashing Adelina topic?!

    Just wanted to bring it up as I am going to it the day after tomorrow.

    They are touring many Russian cities. In one city Yulia was asked: How is your life after Sochi? - When I go into a store, someone will surely shout: "Wow! Lipnitskaia!" And all the customers run to have a photo session. I am already tired of it. Go into a bus with a cap and dark glasses but they recognize me anyway.

    Then Yagudin added: we come to practice every day and also say: "Wow! Lipnitskaia!"

    Same thing happened to her in Japan, where she is very loved. Poor little girl. But I suppose that is the price of success.

    Kovtun was introduced as "a good average skater" by Averbukh at Moscow show
    Julia was the queen of the night. She nailed 3T and four 3F (unexpectedly!) at her SL program And also skated the short program. She did neither the new spin nor 4T.

    She was fantastic with Shindler's list. I did not count four 3F - may be just did not pay enough attention. In the second half while doing her SP she did two clean 3T but failed a 3F. Adelina on the other hand had no luck with jumps before the break, although overall I enjoyed her Swan Lake. After the break she did nicely 2A, 3F, and 3T during "Come together". In the end they did a parallel 3T with Yulia.

    Slutskaia (mother of 2 kids) skated very nicely, performed Bielmann and tried 3L, unsuccessfully.

    Overall the show was amazing, the mood was very warm, the audience was very appreciative to everyone. I think with the men the crowd was the loudest after the second performance of Stéphane Lambiel. There were very few empty seats - they said that the crowd was 7-8 thousand strong. One thing though - it is not a tradition here for a standing ovation. As the noise after Yulia's clean SL was very loud, Averbukh himself suggested everyone to stand up - and everybody did. It's just a remark - for me the notion of standing ovation as a necessary element of the good audience is sort of far-fetched. Hope, all show participants tonight felt well-appreciated.

    Yes, Averbukh was harsh on Pluschenko, saying that he will never again perform for Russia so that our hopes are with other athletes now.
