Nathan moved perfectly fine to Rocketman and better than many would have done to it. I'm sure he understood it quite well to skate it and did no disrespect to anyone, it's from the damn soundtrack and another revamp album that was made with Elton's respect in mind, so go have an argument with Giles Martin, Sir Elton John and Bernie Taupin which I'm sure you'll lose. Also, don't go blaming Chen for the music cut that's on the music pro that mixed it (and quite well mind you) and the hip hop breakdown was Sam Chouinard and MF Dubreuil's idea and choreo so if you feel that you are so much better a choreographer than they then knock yourself out man. I think it was great, as do many others.Nathan should absolutely not bring Rocketman back. He didn't move well to that music or understand in the first place, and then totally disrespected the music with his annoying remixing attempt at the end. His choreo sequence there was a cartoonish attempt at hip-hop, those arms, that totally unthreatening expression while trying to act like a "baller", just no. His current LP is his best, keep that and do a new SP. Probably something Chinese themed to pander.
Karen Chen (the better Chen) should keep Butterfly Lovers, but I really wish she would just use the Lu Chen (it's a Chen Chen world out there) music cut with a few extra seconds added at the end, which flowed together perfectly and would even work perfectly still for the rules right now - 3 jump elements, then the level step sequence while the music is going fast, then a spin, then 2 more jumps, then choreo sequence (and plz, just steal the "blossoming into a Butterfly" concept Karen, it's too beautiful and perfect not to) and another spin, and then the last two jumps and final spin. For her SP, something more fiery.
Jason Brown, keep the SP if you will make it darker, could be great, but it shouldn't be this completely playful. For the LP, something new. Do not use Schindler's List again.
All of the Russian girls except Valieva's SP, something new.

don't go blaming Chen for the music cut, that's on [other people]
I'd like to see bring her last years SP. It was brilliant and and she always skated it well.I usually don't like multi-seasons of programs from skaters. But in these cases I make exceptions. In the case of Nathan's he hasn't done Rocketman as a competitive program since the 19-20 season (it wasn't his LP this season, so it wouldn't be a back to back repeat program).
