Very good and different to choose blues for a Short Program. I'm sure Jason's musicality and a choreographer as inventive as Little Walter will result in a great performance

Really excited to watch both programs.

And Alex Johnson hinted that his FS has something to do with Johnny Depp.
Agree that Tom Z's blog entry was very thoughtful.
IIRC, Scimeca/Knierim had said at the same time that Lion King was their second choice after the Wizard of Oz. Dunno whether they were in joking in both, one, or none of their comments.
