I can expect someone going for a Russian skater's classic. I feel there will be some Yagudin like program, even if skating has changed very much since then
I/K should do James Bond!! The judges would melt. But they need good choreography....oh please I just want them to skate something, anything worthy of their talent. Oh yes and Nikita needs to grow a pair..no more wilting under pressure...You are the MAN for goodness sake...Okay..enough ranting for one day
Ashley would rock Firebird!
There are all those Russian movie themes that Russian skaters have used. "The Admiral" that Samarin used, for example, is quite nice.
I just hope nobody used 17,000 minutes in Spring, the miserable piece that Maria Butyrskaia used. Man, I can't stand that music.
And I hope no one uses Otonal or Meadowlands.
Yuzuru song of Two Step from Hell!
: nero, Heart of Courage, Strength Of A Thousand Men and especially archangel, so epic!!!
A lady will skate to Carmen. I think it's a rule that someone must use it in the Olympic year.....
In his interview with Pigeon Post, Nobunari Oda revealed two of his new programs for next season, saying there's no reason to hide them. His free program is to the William Tell Overture and his exhibition is to The Last Samurai, both choreographed by Lori Nichol. For his EX, he says the steps at the end are really difficult.
Who is Ashley Cain???? Is she even a speck on any radar????
I don't get this influx of Russian classical music just because it is in Sochi. It is far too obvious for my taste and shows lack of creativity or risk taking.
Does it mean just because the Olympic is in US, skaters should adopt country/jazz/blues music or Gershwin or John Williams? Olympic in Japan, lets all do memoir of a geisha or Hisashi? etc etc.
As far as I am concerned, an automatic +1 should be awarded in every PCS category just for any use of
- None Russian music
- No warhorse/'worldly acclaimed legit' classical music.
- No where near Carmen. (In fact this should result in - 1 deduction unless your surname ends with Virtue or Moir)
- Any program that has nothing to do with Morozov (to be fair, he will get home bonus anyway, so this way of marking just balance it all out to 0)
- Special award for using composers from outside Europe.
