    Johnny Weir's "Unchained Melody" Program

    I really enjoyed Johnny Weir's "Unchained Melody" exhibition program. His jumpsuit costume featured a rhinestone heart across his chest. He skated with his usual elegance, style, and athleticism. It looks as though he may well become quite a heartthrob for the young ladies of the audience.

    Yeah, that little fluff piece where the flower girls were all giggly about him was cute.

    But like I just posted on the other Exhibitions thread, the main thought that was running through my head during this performance was, why don't all skaters choose great songs to skate to? The music absolutely carried the performance, IMHO. All Johnny had to do was skate along to it. Totally mesmerizing.

    I didn't like the program, and I think one of the reasons was I found the costume to be too distracting... jmho...

    I love the song though

    I, too, was disappointed by the exhibition piece. I think his FS is far more interesting.

    yeah, right, because THAT's what I think makes a good skater.

    I didn't like the program, I don't like his style of skating. Johnny is an attractive guy. I am not a blonde bombshell or even remotely close to attractive so I am not as superficial as to like only the overly attractive male skaters :rolleyes:

    Exquisite isn't the same as "WOOT WOOT!" (thank goodness). And since Popeye isn't doing eligible skating , give me exquisite every time.

    isn't that another one of those subjective words? LOL

    I dunno, it's not that I don't see why he is a great skater... he just fits into the whole Michelle Kwan category for me. I will never deny they are great, or that they don't deserve everything they get... I just don't "get" them... as in I don't see why they have huge followings... maybe that's part of it too, I don't know

    Johnny is a hottie. Plus, he has cool hair. I know because I just asked my 12-year-old niece!

    Others think good skating is a combination of good basics, good elements and good presentation. But you have your views and you certainly are entitled to them, and we are aware of them. No problem.

    I totally understand what you mean.

    PS. I am just glad that Johnny did something with his hair. I like it very much now.

    Johnny seems to be a very introspective skater to the point that he is thrown off if the audience is too responsive to his programs. In the short program at the end of the circular footwork the crowd started to cheer and he had a minor stumble and they were quiet again. It was even more noticable in the long. He had finished all his jumps and when he went into the straight line footwork the crowd sounded like it was going to cheer loudly all the way through, but he had another stumble that quieted the response. He also talked about "going into his own world" to train for worlds.
