I'm sorry to take so long to report back! Since Ioana was taking videos anyways :P, I only took Shawn Sawyer's. Stupid pole blocked his backflip from my view.

Shawn Sawyer - Alice in Wonderland - Oct 16, 2011 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEtjP0s93ZA)

What a wonderful crowd, really. They were oohing and ahhing over everything for everyone! Also, Paul Wylie was totally fanboying on the Shibutanis, he couldn't stop talking about them. :) It was a true honor to see the Protopopovs live. The grace and poise is still there.

ETA: Beginning clip from the finale (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQ6cAyYwCcI), focus on Shibutanis.

Thanks Sasha for the vids! :)

Can anyone ID the music of the Protopopovs... sounds so familiar...

It is not "I Could Have Danced All Night," it is "Fascination."

I am a girl actually. And do you really want to play word games? Ok, it is just my observation the nature of what you said could make you look like a self righteous uptight prick, but there's no need to make a big deal about it :rolleyes:

Ouch! Could you take it easy? :lol:

BTW, I know that you are a girl by now.

AFAIK, she has been off the ice for a good while.

From Rumblefish above. As I can confirm and can people at a variety of rinks in New Jersey and New York, Oksana has been on the ice with some regularity over the years. Whether her practice methods are effective for retaining skills is a whole other debate (the more demanding skills started falling off right after Lillehammer and she faced, as all OGMs do, the post-competitive maintenance challenge) but she has timeframes where she does show up at the rink and these days it's at my rink.

Here's Blake Rosenthal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhdoyYDzq_Y) skating to Adele. Because we only had 3 of her songs during the show -all on the ladies' side.
