:lol: Since when does a Joubert program have anything to do with choreo or interpretation?

Maybe we will finally see the true Joubert!:HA!:
Or maybe not.
Anyway, I hope that he can get good choreo.

Abbot is a musical guy. I would love to see him doing ice dance (with Massimo...)

PML :rofl:
My first thought was that they are doing the flamenco together.

My second thought was that Abbott's would probably the most depressing flamenco in history, at least I have never heard about flamenco dancers looking as if they have just buried their favorite granny and going to burst into tears any second.

And my third thought was "Joubert? Flamenco??? PML!!!"

Oh, those are wonderful news on so many levels!

All so true! :rofl:

I think Joubert would likely have a Flemenco costume and open his short program with some flamenco like move and also possibly end the routine with a flamenco like move. Obviously there is no Flamenco way to do a triple lutz or a quad triple or a flamenco way to a mohawk turn but maybe in costume and attitude he could do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flamenco is not a word I ever expected to see in a sentence with Jeremy Abbott's name. Should be interesting, though. Maybe it will make him more aggressive.


Maybe he'll do a more subdued style of flamenco, like the Gallecia Flameco Kimmie Meisner used a few years ago. And, before anyone starts :angryfire, I'm only referring to the music. Although I liked the interpretation, too

Wow, I'm the complete opposite to you guys. I'm a huge HUGE Abbott fan, but I don't see him pulling off a flamenco He's too innocent-looking to make it really effective. Brian, I think, can do wonders with it. He's proven he can handle challenging choreography when he wants to, and give him a program where he can play to the audience, you've got a winner.
Really ? I'm a huge ABbott fan, and I loved the drama in his Tango LP in 2009 and the passion in his Waltz LP in 2008.
I think that passion + drama can do a perfect Flamenco.
Anyway, it depends so much on the music and the choreography. Let's wait and see ;)


Jeremy Abbott is dating Massimo Scali....check out Massimo's FB
At least, it's better taste than Joubert. :P

There are pictures of Brian and Romain in local newspapers doing Flamenco pauses!
:rofl:
Are you sure it's flamenco moves and not just because the rink is too sunny ? :cool:

I agree with Mr Fan. I think Brian would be great with flamenco! He's all about the sexy macho posturing. I see it less with Jeremy but he's a good artist I think he could pull it off too. These could turn out to be great programs.

You're playing into my fantasies. :) As long as their dance involves a lot of kisses and hand holds. ;) *daydreams* :swoon::cheer2::encore:

I'm hoping for something by Manuel de Falla - maybe Ritual Fire Dance............
Abbot should be able to interpret something like that.

REally looking forward to both Joubert's and Abbott's programs!

I want to see Brian win Worlds next year, or at least beat Patrick Chan.

Go Brian!

I think we're going to see two very different interpretations of Flamenco, each suited to the strengths of the skater. I can't wait!
