    This is now making me think of Ross Miner's SP he did for 2 seasons to "Empire State of Mind." When it was clean....WOW. So beautiful.

    I LOVE "Hamilton" and I think it is awesome that Jason is going to tackle it for the Olympic season! I think he will be amazing with this choice for his SP! It may very well turn out to be another signature piece for him, like "Riverdance"!

    I wasn't familiar with Mirai's choice "Miss Saigon" for her FS but I looked up some Broadway clips of the show on youtube. I LOVE the music and I really hope that Jeff can bring out the best of Mirai for this piece in the Olympic season!! If she can pull it out along with some AWESOME jump passes throughout the season the skies the limit! GO MIRAI!

    I'm sort of debating whether to put this here or not, but I think that Javier Fernández just revealed for real his FS theme - after the rather heavy hints he dropped in some interview in the spring, Don Quij/xote has been the top contender and it seems to be made to the music from Man from La Mancha. If someone is more fluent in Spanish, please feel free to verify or refute!

    http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/videos/t...40717/4115607/ (also on Twitter although I think the telediario clip will not be geoblocked: https://twitter.com/24h_tve/status/885862443959828480)

    If it really is La Mancha I am a little depressed, because I do not like the whole idea or the music too much - even the hit song from it "Dream the Impossible Dream" is a slow and dragging bore. I will try to have faith in David Wilson who was able to put together a marvellous Guys'n'Dolls themed FS for him when the premise for me was almost the same - that musical is mostly quite boring (but "Luck be a Lady" is a much easier song to use in this context). At least there will be no Peter Gunn involved (it was part of the SP medley in 2010 and the main tune in his FS for 2014).

    Edit: I guess i have learned a bit of Spanish over the years (without actually studying it) and my interpretation of what I heard has been verified: Javier Fernández FS Man From La Mancha.

    But those programs are complete polar opposites.

    You are right. Yesterday a short film on Javier was presented in the sports section of the daily news. He spoke about his preparations for the olympic season, about the lesson learnt from the last worlds and also revealed that in his FS he would represent the Man of La Mancha and not Don Quixote.

    Could someone tell me what's the piece from Medvedeva's exhibition routine that starts at 2:18 and finishes at 2:40?

    I like Gabrielle's FP music choice! It's just so Gaby! Sure she could sold it out.

    And just have watched sneak peek's of some ladies programs. I've already loved Sakamoto's "Amelie" FP! It is so soft and naive and fits her, her first season as senior.
    Mai's "Libertango" is also beautiful but it's too different from her last year programs and I think she hasn't owned it yet.
    Well, "Gypsy Dance" is amazing choice from Higuchi, one of the best music choices this season, I'd say. But isn't it too fast for her? Could she handle this? Will see. In that point I would say Higuchi and Mihara should switch their SP program musics. Mai has amazing speed across the ice that could help with "Gypsy Dance" and Wakaba - passionate style for "Libertango". Anyway, looking forward to watch this programs in competition!

    I'm still thinking Marin Honda is wasting her talent with warhorses. Just take a look at her "Crime Tale" EX, which is absolutely stunning and then beaten to death "Turandot" FP.

    I haven't noticed this yet. Does anyone know if the music Despacito, from Justin bieber, Luis fonsi and Daddy Yankee is being used? I've been listening to that song on the radio this summer. I can't get it out of my head! I think it would make an awesome short for someone. I am so ready of this Olympic season.....

    actually earlier cathlen posted an article saying that Polish Ice Dance couple Kaliszek/Spodyriev will be probably using Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee hit or that they have an intention to use this song. Definitely a material for SD, but at the same time I don't think it will suit every couple's style/expression...

    Yes, it's Man of La Mancha - he says it's very Spanish and the program will show Don Q's [impossible] dream. I understood him to be referring to the program's theme and not necessarily saying that's the specific music he'll use from the show. I could be wrong. Maybe Arriba will weigh in.

    ^^^I think I’m hearing “intentaré conseguir (?) ese sueňo que siempre he tenido”. I can’t really hear the one word he is saying, but I get the sense that Javi would like to reach the dream he has always had. I am assuming that he would like to reach his dream of winning an Olympic medal. He doesn’t mention any specific songs from the musical Man of La Mancha. He says that the Man of La Mancha is a well-known Spanish character (Don Quijote), which is what I think he said before when he hinted at his music.

    In the first part, they talk about the different things he does for his off-ice training to help the explosiveness of his skating. I like where they say the only skate in sight is the one that is tattooed on his leg, along with the Olympic rings. 😊

    ETA -- I like that Javi seems really enthused about this choice.

    ETA 2 -- I was trying to remember some of the songs from the musical Man of La Mancha. The only ones that I can imagine him skating to are I, Don Quixote; the Impossible Dream, Dulcinea, others?

    No. That clip is Man of La Mancha not Don Q.

    Yeah it's definitely "conseguir". I missed the "he" before tenido!

    Waxel, I'm a little confused at your distinction. I guess you're thinking of the ballet? But Man from La Mancha is also a telling of Don Quixote, as is the Massenet opera, Don Quichotte.

    Don Quixote de la Mancha.
    (Don Quixote of La Mancha).

    The same character. The man of La Mancha is Don Quixote.

    I think the confusion here is with the wording of the early post. It says he is "representing" The Man of La Mancha, not Don Quixote. But "to represent," in this case, means to play a role. He is playing the same role (as far as we know). But plausibly skating to the Broadway musical or opera, Man of La Mancha, rather than the commonly-used ballet entitled Don Quixote.

    Then it's just exactly Don Quixote anyway.

    Actually, it's not because they're totally different pieces.
