    Kwan:
    SP: Romanza - from the first year she really seems to feel the music
    LP: Lyra Angelica - I really liked Michelle best during the late 90s and this program for me was a highlight
    Ex: East of Eden - loved the music

    Plushenko:
    SP: Tango de Roxanne - I really just liked his program in Sochi for the team event, he really rose to the occasion he seemed to will one more clutch performance from his body.
    LP: St Petersburg 300 and The Godfather - I really loved both, he seemed to have a such a presence with these programs.
    EX: None - I've never been as big of fan of his exhibitions as of his competitive programs, i like them alright but none really stand out to me.

    Mishkutenok and Dmitriev:
    SP: The Swan - Not many to choose from but I liked this best.
    LP: Symphony of Emotions - lovely music, lovely program, arguably worthy of Olympic gold.
    EX: Somewhere Out There - (Dmitriev and Kazakova) M/D just didn't have many to choose from.

    Grishuk and Platov:
    OD: Libertango - one of the greatest OD ever performed.
    FD: The Feeling Begins - for me this program showcased G/P at their best, they were so inovative and fast but in control and they seemed so confident.
    EX: You'll See - my favorite exhibition from any era and any discipline.
