Gritschuk & Platov's skated to its maximum was far superior to Michelle Kwan's IMO. Michelle's was also very good, but G&P left me more feeling of owning that music totally. Michelle wins every poll she is on here though. :lol: I never saw Baiul's, Navka & Kostomarov's was just good, and the other two were mediocre at best.
I totally agree. G&P really captured the feeling of the music and gave it character. If you turned the music down you would definately get a feeling for the flavour and characters they were trying to create. Kwan just skated through it. It was powerful skating but she really didn't do anything special with the music. If you turned the music off you wouldn't know what she was skating to. It could have been anything.

Lysacek and Meissner aqlso did a TFB. Both have effective choreography but neither is one I'd watch zillion times over (unlike Kurt's or G&P's)

None. Lordie, I detest that creepy "music." The Feeling must END, not Begin! Listening to that is my equivalent of being waterboarded.

Michelle's was the best. She captured that power and fire perfectly and the footwork section was wonderful. I still get really pissed when I think about how the judges shafted her at 2004 worlds with that program...those scores were ridiculous, time violation or not.



Ditto!

And I might get :lynch: for that but I find the choreo of G&P's program more ludicrous than intricate, especially that bit

Not fond of those costumes either :cold:

G&P far and away my favourite performance of the piece and then Oksana Baiul is a close 2nd.

The movements really went with the music though :)

Gritschuk & Platov's was far superior to Michelle Kwan's IMO. It isnt even close to my favorite program from Kwan either, or even close to my favorite short program of hers. Michelle's was still very good and a strong but distant 2nd. The rest I dont even remember so are probably blah and forgettable. Anything Baiul or Trenary did as a pro were blah and forgettable for that matter other than Trenary's nice performances at Ice Wars one year.

Wheeee, if I had those pants I would totally wear them grocery shopping and around the house.

Is that a portrait of Oksana in the background? Really cool. :cool:
