    Cohen music news (well, sort of)

    Someone on her fan forum has annouced that she is keeping her short program from last year, but says she has a new free program, and it is "something classical".

    You heard it here first

    Considering she only skated that SP twice and it was pretty well received by the judges at worlds it doesn't surprise me that she'd keep it. She needs to spend as much time as possible on her nemisis the LP. Classical music could mean anything.

    Smart choice! I love this program. If she refines it more it will be even more spectacular.

    I think it is a very good idea for her to keep the short programme. Apparently she likes it, and besides as already pointed out, she only skated to it twice.

    mmmm I believe somebody like Debbi Wilkes or another commentator said in response to the SLC 2002 fiasco that maybe S+P's second mark went down because it was a reused program (it was their 1999-2000 lp)

    I vaguely remember hearing this too...but I do remember some fluff piece on S/P before the olympics where the idea of them (re)using Love story came up, and they were debating it as they had to check into whether or not they would be penalized for it...then they used it, so I always figured that the answer to their question/investigation was NO, it only matters how you skate it that night, not how many times you have skated it before judges.

    I didn't know that about Michelle's marks...but EOE was/is one of my favorite of her sp's.

    Sorry to bump the thread but I think someone else supposedly "in the know" says that Cohen has yet to decide what her free program music is.

    It seems like many of the skaters are already in full gear and are in the process of or have already completed choreographing their programs. I know the word is she's keeping her short, but why wouldn't she have started on her LP? I don't have any idea what a typical time frame is for these sorts of things. Is there plenty of time, is she lagging behind, if so why would she be waiting so long?

    I definitely remember a post-SLC puff piece where a few of the judges that gave the nod to B&S were interviewed. The Russian judge justified giving B&S her nod because they skated to something original and S&P were re-hashing an old program. I remember being stunned at the time since many others (especially Russians - Maria B, Victor P.) have re-hashed programs. Maybe that particular judge felt it was the best way to answer the question. Or maybe certain judges do actually mark down in presentation for re-hashed programs.

    Well Sasha's Dark Eyes SP looked kind of empty and incomplete to me. It just seemed that she didn't have enough time to put the finishing touches on that program so I'm looking forward to seeing what it's going to look like for the Olympic season.

    Plus I think that Sasha really likes her SP costume and wants to wear it again.

    Well Sasha used Malaguena for two full seasons and it didn't seem to hurt her at all in 04.

    Soogar, I just hope she doesn't change the costume like she did with Malaguena. The original black dress was perfect and one of my favorite dresses I've ever seen and she went and changed it for the ugly yellow Big Bird dress. It completely ruined the program for me.
