    Plushenko's Carmen was actually one of the best I've seen. He's still the only man to have switched gender roles mid-program. It was awesome.

    When the music was announced, I went straight to Youtube to check it out. I was horrified. "Rohene, what are you doing?!" I cried. "THIS IS AWFUL!" And I still didn't like the program until its rework into the Senior masterpiece.

    Of course, Rohene always knows what he's doing. But I still hate that music.

    ITA. Which brings me back to Max and Carmen. I wonder how much input he had into that program?

    To me, there was nothing wrong with Max's Carmen program except that it had too many quads. A quad takes a lot of preparation and soaks up a lot of energy. If you attempt three quads and two triple Axels, that takes its toll on the choreography, and if you flub one of your big jumps it is hard to get back on track. I think Max was determined to go for broke on the tech side, so in that sense, yes, I do think he had a lot of input.
