That's the main idea of the project (to change partners each episode) and Navka probably will skate with Tchernishev but not in the next four coming episodes when her partners are going to be Vanagas,Shabalin,Khvalkho and Goncharov.Maybe they keep the best for the end :) JK

It's been very interesting to see the partner switches so far, but I'm looking forward to this one, too. ;)

Lobacheva/Tchernishev(:shuffle:the info is kind of confusing and i can't tell for sure if they'll skate or not)

http://www.1tv.ru/videoarchive/43349Thank you, vivika1982.

Lobacheva/Tchernishev(:shuffle:the info is kind of confusing and i can't tell for sure if they'll skate or not)Lobacheva had high blood pressure the day when they were supposed to skate, but their number was filmed later, at the last week's shootings. Unfortunately, seems that it was very unsuccessful, and they got really low marks :(.

Episode 4:70-s and 80-s Music


Alla Pugacheva_ ”The woman who sings”

Tatiana Navka and Povilas Vanagas completed this stage of the Cup of professionals with spectacular performance to the song "The woman who sings" . The pair was the only one who received all "six" for artistry in the fourth round . Anton Sikharulidze noted the professionalism of the athletes, the high quality elements, but admitted that he "wasn‘t captured“ by the number. Elena Tchaikovskaya was impressed quite differently . "To chose Pugacheva is always very dangerous - she said. - Especially this song. It cuts through the air like a scream. Today I saw it in Tatiana, she cut through the whole atmosphere. It was a wonderful state, to the chills."

Elena Kamburova_ - ”Interrupted Flight” (lyrics and music by Vladimir Visotskii)

"In everyone's life there are moments when one is on the verge of collapse and fall. And often, by the will of providence, appears a man who saves you and becomes your one and only ,a friend,a relative. This is what our number is about," - said Maxim Marinin, whose partner this time was Jana Khokhlova. The soulful dance to the song of Vladimir Vysotsky performed by Elena Kamburova had welcomed standing from Tatyana Tarasova . But not all the judges appreciated the artistry of the pair. "Great technique, superior skate. But I couldn’t see the anguish . There was a failure in some places," - said Elena Chaikovskaya.

Sam Brown -”Stop”

Maxim Shabalin, who in the amateur sport competed in ice dancing, admitted that he wanted to try for a long time the high lifts of pair skating. He was able to realize this dream with pair skater Tatyana Totmynina. The pair also succeed in other effective lifts but from ice dancing. Yet, all judges agreed: the number was good, but does not pull the perfect score. "I saw a greatly performed elements that are very clean and with good amplitude. But perhaps the number didn’t captured me to the point to give two sixes" - confessed Anton Sikharulidze. "It was done excellent technically , but something was not enough, in the middle there was a small dip in the emotions" - agreed Elena Chaikovskaya.

Gidon Kremer -"Oblivion”

Maxim Stavisky admitted, that he never had the chance to skated with such a tall partner as Oksana Domnina but he liked working with her very much . Their number to the tango of Astor Piazzolla was very heartfelt, and even the mistake during the lift didn’t affect the general perception. Two judges awarded the pair with top marks. Igor Bobrin, in particular, explained: "When you understand that the number touched you and you're thinking about something, you forget about the technical blemish." Elena Chaikovskaya still reduced the scores: “For me ,this failure broke the general feeling of the tango. But overall, both were convincing." Natalia Bestemianova didn’t estimate the number with the maximum, but called it "absolutely fantastic, brilliant."

Grace Jones_”I’ve seen this face before”

Albena Denkova confessed that she was scared to pair with such a master, as Roman Kostomarov. Their tango was emotional and replete with difficult elements, but the jury wasn‘t delighted. Elena Tchaikovsky ,the only one who gave the two top scores, explained her decision by saying that she saw on the ice, "brilliant athletes who were themselves, possessed great skate and have shown incredible and subtle tango." Igor Bobrin seemed not very convinced by the role of the female partner: "I wouldn’t wind up by such a woman , I wouldn’t continue to dance.”

Leonova/Zhulin (Zhulin/ Orshulyak)
Leonard Cohen-”I’m your man”

The music for the dance of Alexander Zhulin was suggested by his partner Elena Leonova. According to Alexander, at first he doubted the choice, but as he started listening to the song "I'm your Man", at the training, he realized that this was exactly what they need. "I'd never used to skate to something like that and for me was so interesting!" - Said Elena. The parody of the circus did not receive higher scores for technique, but almost all the judges appreciated the production. Moreover, Igor Bobrin thought that there could be even more original and witty ideas.

VIA “Flame“- “Solder walks through the city”

The song "Soldier walks through the city," was known for a long time by Andrei Khvalko who skated together with Maria Petrova. "I've got the music associated with the army - he explained. - When we were released from the army , we were lined up in front of the headquarters , and listened this music." The athletes included in the number many difficult lifts and spectacular death spiral, but this seemed not enough judges. Igor Bobrin, as usual, was hard on the props and didn’t disregard the fact that Masha tied badly the handkerchief, so that she had to take it off in the middle of the dance . Tatiana Tarasova, moreover, didn’t like the parallel footsteps.

Michael Andrews feat. Gary Jules- ”Mad World”

Ruslan Goncharov pointed out the long-awaited opportunity to skate with Margarita Drobiazko. Their stunning number to the song "Mad World" was breathtaking, but the judges weren’t quite impressed. According to Anton Sikharulidze, it seemed that in this dance, Margarita didn’t demonstrate her usual emotionality. "Very quiet, drawling, sleepy number" - he said. Igor Bobrin admitted that he didn’t fully understood the idea of the producer, and complained about the lack of a libretto. But Tatiana Tarasova, in contrast, praised the couple: "I love it when the hands and the body work on a simple element in a way that immediately makes it clear what it is all about. It is a great achievement of Margarita, that she can be totally different."

Alla Pugacheva- ”Without me”

"Homely country story, that can happen in any family" - described the idea of the number Alexei Tikhonov. His partner, Naomi Lang, in Slavic girl’s dress looked very organic. As, by the way, was Alex with his bushy mustache. The "5.0" for artistry from Tatiana Tarasova seemed unexpected. In her view, the movement did not always accurately lay on the music, and in addition, the number looked banal. "With this kind of music that sounds in our hearts, with these words there could be either something very unexpected, or, as in classical music, you should play whatever the author intended," - she said. But for Natalia Bestemyanova the unusual comic interpretation of Alla Pugacheva's song "Without Me" seemed quite appropriate.

Lobacheva/Tchernishev (Averbukh)
Nautilus Pompilius -”Clap-Clap”

Irina Lobacheva and Peter Chernyshev wanted to show the public and the jury something unusual, and the song of Nautilus Pompilius "Clap-clap” couldn’t be more appropriate and helpful. Their performance on the theme of green peas, without doubt attracted the attention of the judges, but their scores were quite restrained. According to Igor Bobrin the guys went a little too far with the image which was interfering : "If we are going to skate tomato paste, it would look not very accurate on the ice." The finale ,when the partner breaks jar of peas on the ice, ruined the number according to Natalia Bestemyanova "I accept the ice as a sanctuary and I can’t see this."

Grace Jones_”I’ve seen this face before”

Slutskaya went to the Helgesson Sisters Salon for Hair Bumps, I see. It's nice to see Albena again...she always :kickass:

02-11-2012, 07:01 PM
I love this idea of swapping the partners :lol:
Denkova/Kostomarov were great together :eek:
She'll always be the best to me with Maxim but skating with Roman the difference in the height showed her off more.The acting at the beginning was :lol:

02-11-2012, 08:04 PM
I liked the idea of swapping partners too and enjoyed Albena and Roman’s tango as well as Oksana and Max’s mini spectacle about the actress and the psycho stalker with one little exclusion - the last lift . My heart was aching for them because they both are extraordinary skaters and Max is strong partner who is not afraid to try something different even difficult lift with skater who is few sentiments taller than him/or as Max joked size XXL in height :) / .However, the lift from SDS was totally unnecessary .The dance was great and already had enough difficult elements and nice lifts. Max was strong and Oksana was exquisite and impossibly elegant and beautiful in her red dress but instead of presenting the strong Atlas and exquisite Nike /with all my due respect and devoted admiration for both of them/ the whole thing looked like mini-titan caring the Empire State Building. Yet i like their dance and all other performances tonight even Lobacheva/Tchernishev's "protesting peas" especially their Max and Moritz/Little Rascals hairstyle .Speaking of hairstyle Irina Slutskaya's hair was great and Yagudin was yummly elegant as always.

Have Domnina/Kostomarov skated together yet ? Will be interesting to see if they have chemistry as they are a couple off ice :P
