    - same year and event as Zagorodniuk, but unlike with him, luckily her designer didn't feel the need to actually write "007 girl" on a sticker on her costume!
    I agree Yu-Na's Bond SP was great - she made it shine!

    Not sure if this still qualifies as an "unusual music choice", but in '99/'00, "the red violin" was considered quite unusual, at least for a competitive program:

    Mirai Nagasu's short program this season was a Bond one. To be honest, to claim Yuna using it makes it unusual smacks of ignorance.

    ... ooh... Just thought about Nelli Zhiganshina and Alexander Gazsi's "Zombie - Two From The Grave" 2013 FD: this season's programmes didn't have the same impact, but last year's FD was truly "special"

    Oops! Thanks, Frenchie for posting the correct link.

    And Z/G's Zombie program will be remembered years from now fondly. You don't always have to win a medal to have a winner of a program...

    LOL, that program was SO left field I think it was practically the parking lot!
