Nice!!! :clap:

We need to go beyond the usual skating choreographers and bring in someone edgier, like say the folks from "So You Think You Can Dance" or maybe music video choreographers who actually create these steps for major pop / hip-hop artists. Would add something refreshing. Hope it works and isn't a poor fit. Max Trankov is a major hip-hop fan and IIRC he loves Jay-Z's music, maybe he and Tania could do something for next year's FS? I would've thought the judges might not take to it, but their music edit for Jesus Christ Superstar was so bizarre that I think they'll overlook aesthetic choice if a top team can deliver the technical goods.

Well, pairs can skate to whatever music they want, especially now that vocal music will be allowed. They'll prefer rhythms that help them execute the big technical tricks. Whatever they can express well with skating skills in between should help their PCS.

I really hope the majority will stick with non vocals. I find the vocals a distraction when it comes to skating, even in Ice Dance. There are very few cases in which vocals are very well suited in a performance, like V&M "Funny Face" routine for example.
