Wow, thanks for the link, Frenchie! I do like Haruka's new look and presentation. I hope she has a good season coming up. She's been in the shadow of Mao and Akiko, but this is her chance to shine
Viktoria Helgesson has made her new programs together with Catarina Lindgren. She says in her blog that she is happy you are finally allowed to use vocals. She knew since long what to use for her Free Skate. She had many songs she liked for the short but no one perfect. When sitting in the car Catarina played a song she liked after 30 seconds: "I think this will be the best program I ever did."
I remember Viktoria and Joshi saying in an interview that the only time they listened to classical music was when to choose music for their new programs
I'm excited about the new rule. Hoping for various music choices and skaters performing to music they listen to and really like. Even if it's not the the music I like
SP: "You Raise Me Up" by David Garrett
FS: “El Conquistador” by Maxime Rodriguez and Benise’s “Aranjuez.” Choreographed by Rohene Ward
After watching Javier's program I think it's pretty safe to say he's the most attractive active skater right now
