I remember Hoffman/Zavozin's hip hop. I saw that and just went, Fuuuuuuuu... [cut for profanity, but man, that thing suck... erm, was not very good. And I like Max and Nora. But oy. There was no hip in that hip hop.]

I'll throw my support behind any team that does "My Neck, My Back (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y44XW3whxPM)", or anything by 2 Live Crew (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0oALRL7uyY). :cheer: Bonus points if they do Riskay's "Smell Yo ****" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgWgEoaAYDY). :EVILLE:

:rofl:I wish someone would have the guts. Give it to the seniors and a team ready to retire should do something 'proper' all season and show up at Worlds and.......that would be 'gold'!

Although how do they handle the use of the word "pussy" in a hip hop song?

Hip hop, really? It's like the ISU is trying to make people hate the SD even more than we already do. It should make for some entertaining JGP performances, though.:lol:

I'm totally thrilled with the Finnstep being the SD for the Olympics though. I really love that one, and with the twizzles and other elements that it includes, it will probably make the SD look more like an OD than any of the other dances would have. That should make some of the program flow a little better.

Not SD related, but from that article,


On the free dance front, the small transitional ("highlight") lift has been eliminated, but the final highlight lift will now have a base value.

:confused: So it's been eliminated, but not?

I can't stand hip-hop, and it's even worse on the ice. Takahashi included.

But Finnstep at the Olympics - I can live with that :cheer2:

This is perfect news. :swoon:

Hiphop, swing and blues for juniors next season? :kickass:

And Yankee Polka for seniors AND then Finnstep for the Olympic season? Absolutely perfect. :kickass:

The only :scream: was the part about waltz going together with Yankee Polka. I pray most teams will just stick with the polka.

It depends which polka-the polka from Der Fledermaus works very well with a waltz. It's the "Memories of a Grand Ball" theme, which produced one of my very favorite ever OD's, including Denkova & Staviyski's Baroque Grand Ball program, and YMMV, but I love Winkler & Lohse's Grand Ball OD, which included a polka sequence.

Umm-a Finnstep is one of the most watched skating youtube videos of all time (currently over 1.5 million page views!

That will be interesting-the final lift will be scored--skaters better not mess it up then, and better save some energy for the very end.

Actually I hated that dance - they were standing on the same place the whole time hardly moving or gliding at all (and imho their skating and ice coverage was normally very good). It gives too much space for posing/making faces and not skating. IMHO it will look good on the cameras only while those who sit high or behind the judges will suffer.


Love the seniors SD rhythms!

Ugh, hip hop will be dreadful! But yeah, it will most likely take on a "so bad it's amazing" quality.

Waltz is an option next year again? Hopefully the dances will evoke the "Memories of a Grand Ball" OD from 2003, which I loved (I know that's an unpopular opinion).

DenSta's OD from that year is one of my favourite ODs ever. :swoon:

Yankee Polka... I, errr...Well, I'm glad the Finnstep will be used from the Oly season? :lol:

They don't seem to have a problem with crotch lifts, so I think they'll be fine with this.
