To all the skaters who spend so much $$$$ on bad choreographers, you should hire Jeremys services in the near future.

Joining in celebration. Great showing at Nationals, yet without feeling that perfection was achieved so it's only downhill from here ( aka 2010 Nationals).
I love Jeremy's taste in choosing his programs, year after year. But this year might top it all.

Update on Jeremy's stepfather in San Jose as of last night: http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_19856121

"What is important is I am doing well," said the host of a Saturday morning jazz show in Denver. "The real story is Jeremy Abbott. I'm just a hiccup."
...
Scott plans to watch his stepson compete next month at the prestigious Four Continent Championships in their hometown of Colorado Springs, Colo.

Yes, it was definitely visible on camera. I was actually wondering if someone in the audience had collapsed or had a heart attack as there was so much commotion going on. A lot of people standing up, moving around, heads turning, people talking. Jeremy was right at the boards skating by when it happened, which makes it all the more remarkable that he skated right on unphased to nail his 3flip. He really had his tunnel vision blinders on apparently.

I watched on television. I didn't notice anything going on in the stands, but I definitely heard it. Between the fan calling out during Nagasu's FS and the commotion during Abbott's FS, I was wondering what was going on with security at the arena. It's a good thing Abbott, at least, was able to keep his concentration.

Vagabond, the "fan" who always "calls out" before Jeremy skates is his stepfather, Mr. Scott.
Now that I know that, it doesn't disturb me at all!

Jeremy's concentration would probably be disturbed if he didn't hear that.

I'm so glad to hear Mr. Scott is doing fine!

I was there live, in the upper levels, and I didn't notice anything. I was too entranced by Jeremy's program. :swoon: I was over the moon that he skated it well!

I was there just four rows behind the family.

I always knew Jeremy was quite musical and had great dance ability, but for some reason, I never really realized how good he was until this week. The way he moves with the music is incredible, and his choreography is 3x that of the top ice dance teams. The pause in his LP straightline step sequence this year has to be one of my favorite moments in a program ever. He's just so easy to watch. This is COP done right, IMO.

After watching Jeremy at the nationals last weekend, I have become an uber fan. His LP performance was magical.

There was noise during the skate. I haven't re-watched the video, but I would assume that it was commotion related to the stepfather's collapsing.

I don't think Jeremy usually really "hears" the "Go Alexander" anyway. He's said he's usually too focused to notice it.
