For example, with Brian, he is manlier on the ice, he is strong. That makes my task easier because flamenco men are always very virile and masculine. But it's harder for him to work on movements. Jeremy is more ductile, more fluid. For him it’s more difficult to be strong, but on the other hand he is capable of doing more complex choreography, like move in a very different way, with contemporary movements. For him I made the choreography very rich with movements, while for Brian I did something simpler, but stronger.


My choreography is complex and it's very hard for them to assimilate all the movements at once. So with Jeremy and Brian, I will work with them again in August and maybe also just before their competitions start.


There is a huge difference in skating and style between Jeremy and Brian. So I know the programs will be completely different though obviously you will see my touch. I know they will compete against each other and I will help both of them. And because they are different, they will show different choreographies so people won't say: "Oh, we don't know [who to choose], they are exactly the same." And by the way, by chance they are both doing the short program with me and the long program with David Wilson.


Jeremy’s music is also from one of my shows. For Brian it's Malagueña, a very different version with metal guitars, very strong. He showed me the music and asked my opinion, and I liked it. So Brian chose his own music.


Take Brian, for example. For me the timing to work with him was perfect, because he started to become more open. I was really, really happy with his work. We were in the studio about two hours a day, and he was listening, listening, and trying, trying. Amazing! It was a good experience.

Wait . . . so both Joubert and Abbott are using both Najarro and David Wilson for their choreography this coming season. What a funny coincidence! Kat and Deb gave us The Battle of the Carmens, Boitano and Orser gave us The Battle of the Brians, and now Abbott and Joubert will give us The Battle of the Dueling Choreographers . . . should be fun and exciting! :P

No, I heard he reprised "Gotta Get Through This" (Daniel Bedingfield) and "At This Moment" (Michael Buble).

I thought this was interesting:


Skating fans are always judgmental. They see Brian Joubert, who is more of a solid skater, and they immediately say: "No, no, he can't do this".

I'm not sure the judgment is that he can't do it, but that in the end he won't do it and will simplify the programs.

That's exactly it. And it's exactly why Abbott and Joubert can use similar themes and choreographers and look very different on the ice. Brian has limits to what he's willing to do. Happy to be wrong, but what I expect:

Jeremy will be very body conscious. Tension in the right places, but will present a more elegant line that incorporates the whole body. He will probably have costuming that's inventive and may include purples, reds, golds...any of the above. We'll see a better array here.

Brian's program will be more tension and intensity than anything. The theme will be carried off with energy more than choreography. Think "Plushenko". Lots of hip movement, staring down the judges and dramatic stops with hands clasped above his head or framing his waist. Formulaic. Inventive footwork but little else. Costume is guaranteed to be in black with either gold or red accents. If I see anything else I'll be shocked.
