Interesting that they invited Kostner. I also think it's odd that they invited Slutskaya because I read on Irina's fan board that she has a show in Russia scheduled for the next day...I don't think it would be possible for her to do both shows, so I have a feeling she'll stick with the Russia show and drop Campbell's.
