This is amazing... I give credit to Taso for introducing this to me.

This girl is 12 and portraying a crazed exotic dancer.... and she is actually really good. I wonder whatever happened to her. Sylvia?

Thank you. That was remarkable. She may never have had a great eligible career, but she oozes choreography and musicality from every pore. Just remarkable -- and would have been remarkable if she were 18 or 25.

Ha ha, why does Johnny need to "eat his heart out?" Most likely if Johnny saw this vid of Ng, he'd be amazed, amused, perhaps inspired, and clap right along with the rest of us. :)

I'll bet Johnny would covet that leotard she is wearing in the fluff piece.

She needs to do choreography for some of these COP programs that everyone finds so generic. She reminds me of Sarah Kawahara as a skater.

:slinkawayAlexei Urmanov wore this costume before Johnny's "Camille" or "Blades of Glory". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbpiSkvcWXg

I remember that Scott Hamilton sputtered "but that's a woman's role!".

His skating to the music from Swan Lake didn't bother me as much as it did Scott, but the costume got distracting after awhile. Also the music cuts started getting bizarre.

Full disclosure: I too, have had some skating moments that have provoked an unintended laugh. :slinkaway:

And the progarm actually opens with "Sleeping Beauty" lol...largest sleeves evah!

Sort of off topic, but has any skater ever dared to use John Cage's 4'33" for a performance?

Other than the inadvertent partial performance of 4'33" that Rodnina & Zaitsev skated through at the 1973 World figure skating championship, no, at least AFAIK.

Yes - T&D used if for the start of their Oscar Tango program.

Hee. My synchro team did once, inadvertently. Coach forgot the CD and had forgotten to give some of the skaters a backup CD. . . . :shuffle:

That is so unbelievably wrong for a 12-year-old. . . :scream:

Ummmm do you know what John Cage 4'33" is?

As for the actual music in Oscar Tango, it is a piece by the Penguin Cafe Orchestra.

Maciej CIEPLUCHA's program itself is pretty conventional, but I do love the farty music:

I'm having a hard time figuring out who gets the John Cage joke and who doesn't.

I know who John Cage is.
My choir sang some of his music when I was in high school.
However, I don't get the joke, either,
