I thought Nathan's skating and spins were slow, but I loved his choreo/artistry and jumps! Great program and fantastic job!
I think they were deliberately slow. He was skating to the music. And that Spanish music just needs his dancing to be drawn out :points:

Hanyu would do an over-the-top costume to that music. Flowing sleeves...ruffles...red....major league bling...and feathers! Does Hanyu ever wear a costume that doesn't have feathers????

Nathan's outfit does not match the music.
I think it is supposed to be his effortlessly Nathan cool version of a mariachi costume. I really don't like it - I think the jacket really makes it look like his shoulders are hunched. He has that tendency anyway - and the jacket really accentuates that. However - AWESOME program!! I like the choreography and he performs it beautifully.

No feathers on his Parisienne Walkway shirt. I don't think there were any on the Prince SP outfit either, but those Stupid Sexy Flanders pants may be clouding my memory.

Anyway.. that wasn't my favourite Nathan Chen SP but it was pretty good.

I'm still..put off by Vincent's use of the Vincent song as his short program music.

I can tell you there were no feathers on the Stupid Sexy Flanders pants or waistcoat.

I still preferred the white version which apparently is the wrong opinion, lol.

The costume was fine. Skating of that quality doesn't need bedazzling.

This is the 4th time I've seen this program in competition (if you count JO) and it's the 4th different jump layout.

The takeaway isn't the costume, it's that the experimentation continues.
