    Whoa. This is fantastic. You don't get to see skaters interpret rock music very often (I still fondly think of Takahiko Kozuka's Jimi Hendrix SP from 2010), but I loved this. This suits him so much better than orchestral music, IMO. I think this is a great way to go for a skater who has good musicality but not classical lines/extension. I bet Max Aaron would be pretty awesome with this type of program, too. I always liked Javier personally but never quite got into his programs, but that will change if he keeps going in this direction.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Exactly. The whole point of vocals is that they accentuate the program music, not the program music being dependent on the vocals (which gets distracting).

    Love Javi's program! I think the mark of a good program is you can never tell where the footwork sequence starts because the rest of the program choreo is complex and interesting. Such a contrast to Hanyu's SP in terms of attitude/tone.

    In fact, Max Aaron already HAD used the same Black Betty music for an awesome exhibition program. Unfortunately, I could not find a YT vid of Max's 2013 U.S. Nationals ex (first time I saw the program performed), but here are two other versions from last year.
