    Updated yesterday to describe her new short program, set to the music of "Little Wing" by Jimi Hendrix.

    And Joannie is a skater who can carry it off. She put together a great program last year to a "singing 70s strings" version of Madonna's "Like A Prayer", and I can see her putting together a great one to this as well. And I can't WAIT to see the costume....

    Like how candid she is in her entries. Definitely stepping outside of the box on this one and let's see how it works for her...I find it real interesting how she talks in-depth about how she wants to portray the music because when I see her I don't think lyrical, I think strong.

    Personally I find Joannie very lyrical - one of the most lyrical, actually. But she IS at the same time very strong and powerful, just like how her body appears to be. I think she combines power and grace very beautifully. The programs this year definitely sound very interesting. She and her team seem to have put in a lot of thought and effort. I hope they won't be a let-down

    Canadians...... first the bobsled team is "listening" to the Grateful Dead during the events, now this. It's a Maple leaf people!!!!
    JUST KIDDING!!!!

    I love it! Little Wing is a timeless piece IMO. I do however agree with a different post that she appears more to be a "strong" skater opposed to "lyrical" (here we go with the "bravada / lyrical" again She is a neat girl with powerful beauty (much like Jimmy's style IMO) and I look forward to seeing this.

    And I too am very curious about the costume.

    Most "music sites" should give you a taste at least, the problem is which "instrumental version" will she use.

    Try Archive, it is free from the artist wishes. iTunes will have it but it will be .99 at least. BTW, I always liked Bob Dylan's version better for some reson.

    Also that is a sad song about Jimmy's mom dieing - heavy stuff.

    I thought that version of Madonna's Like a Prayer was horrendous it sounded like really bad lift music!

    Seani,

    I totally agree with you... She's never struck me as a lyrical skater... to the point where I wonder why she skates to "pretty little musical pieces." Little Wing will give her a lot to work with and show off that strong skating that she has in spades... plus it will work to seperate her from the baby ballarinas/jumping beans set to take center stage next year... I'm also loving her choice to work with Sandra... Sounds like she's got a great plan in place for the coming season.

    Wow! What a fabulous choice. Hopefully this will help her stand out from the rest of the field and make the judges sit up and take notice. I thought Sandra Bezic had retired?
