    B/S doing Carmen would just be... well... I'll keep an open mind. I don't think they're a horrible team or something. I also don't mind the use of old music as long as it's done well. But I gotta admit, the following thought did cross my brain: At least it's SD and not FD. It'll be over quickly. Felt pretty terrible afterwards, but still.
    OK, so B/S, S/K AND I/Z ALL DO CARMEN.
    THAT I can be down with.
    I'll give B/S some credit ... they're pretty consistent, so if one of the other teams falter, or both, then they would move to the head of the line.
    And to be fair I think B/S will be Russian #1 next season in any event, and challenge for the worlds podium.

    Prediction: S/K and I/Z both do wonderful, innovative Carmens while B/S predictably does a snoozefest. However, S/K and I/Z both choke up at Worlds--the former has no twizzles, and the latter fall during a lift... thus causing B/S to come out ahead to the ire of people everywhere.

    Oops, wrong thread?

    I wouldn't say "ire". I'm not a big fan of theirs but they're hardly offensive. They just won't generate the excitement that D/W or V/M or even I/K at Sochi would.

    "ire" in the sense of "annoyance S/K and I/Z couldn't get their act together despite having fabulous programs," not hatred toward B/S.

    Agree.

    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

    I'm positive about the dramatic Tristan & Iseult as well. Listening to the music I can almost imagine him skating to it. Wonder if it will be a bit 'Candelorish'

    Really excited to watch both programs.

    Gotcha.
    And I really hope people don't hate on B/S! Despite my carping at how I personally am not their biggest fan, they seem like lovely people.

    Oooh, very exciting. I wanted Jason to do a "classical" piece, but was worried he would go for one of the warhorses. I love this choice... very dramatic, and I think he'll be able to show more emotional range with such an expressive/explosive piece.

    Yankowskas/Gaman SP music choice seems to be Phantom.

    And Alex Johnson hinted that his FS has something to do with Johnny Depp.

    Actually, that's a really good article (I know, I know, I just said something positive about Evil Z). I like these:
    Can't be sure, but your wish (and mine) re Camerlengo for Max's FS is looking quite plausible.
    Agree that Tom Z's blog entry was very thoughtful.

    ETA:

    From that thread:

    Alexa Scimeca & Chris Knierim: Wizard of Oz free skate (some people thought this could be a joke though)
    Joshua Farris: retaining the Schlinder's list free skate
    Lukas Kaugars: Frank Sinatra short program
    Haven Denney and Brandon Frazier: Unchained Melody for the short and Lion King for the freeskate
    Belated thanks to BG for carrying over the stuff from the earlier preview thread for 2014/15. Sorry that I forgot before to say thanks.
    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.
