If ( I don't think so) they are going to use Carmen:

Pas de deux is so beautiful!

For me not the music is problem but choreo. Not what but HOW.

From what I've read about the "source", I would take all this with a HUGE grain of salt! They usually are much later in announcing their programs, I believe. Even if it's true, I'm sure they would do a wonderfully detailed program to this beautiful music. It may be overused but, it is a classic.

How about the Carmen Quadrille Polka for the SD?
Cannot they see we are desperate for news... any news!

I guess Pani is on holidays as all is quiet there!

On another note the vinyl picture for the banner has been completed and when I receive it in September I will get some cloth and it will be over to you Clarie! It looks great and its quite big. Hopefully not too large.

This thought actually crossed my mind earlier, and now someone else has since posted the same idea elsewhere (on fanforum). What if Carmen isn't the FD but the SD?
Yea Thief mentioned that on FF. Mmmm will everybody be more happy with a Carmen SD? I just totally imagined them doing something contemporary and abstract for their FD.

Ok, so could anyone post or link to what this "source" said exactly? Was it vague?

And who is Thief? And when you say FF, I think of Funny Face. God, I'm so confused right now.

Lol my bad, thief is a poster on fanforum (FF) and she's the one that brought up the possibility that maybe T/S's Carmen is actually a polka instead of a FD since the "source" never really specified if it was a SD or FD. And the source I read was really vague, actually I'm not sure I believe it anymore.

Actually I see the Source repeated the rumour twice giving an assurance of its truth.

Yea but it could anybody (maybe somebody just bored that had nothing better to do). Hell I could have gone on formspring and said without a doubt that T/S were skating Carmen lol.

I'd MUCH rather see them with a Carmen SD than a Carmen FD. As I said in the thread in GSD, the ridiculousness of skating a polka to Carmen is sort of hilarious. For me, the juxtaposition of a polka with the most over-used of the over-used music is just, well, campy enough to make it work somehow.

Wait. So someone went to formspring and said that they're skating to Carmen? And then Aunt Joyce repeated the rumour? Huh?

Yeah. Lol when you put it that way, it makes it lack any credibility. Here's the link (http://www.formspring.me/auntjoyce), you have to search for it though.

I don't think they're doing Carmen guys. Remember that orange team interview they did in Paris, wasn't one of their reasons why they disliked Malaguena was because it was so overused in skating?

Well I think it would be really funny if it turned out to be Karmin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8cbak34DR0)I'd rather want it to be 'Carmen' than this generic, unexpressive and blank pop song/melody (while 'Carmen' may be generic, as it's overused, unexpressive and blank it's not). I think that there are many more expressive and memorable contemporary pop melodies out there.

You know what? V and M could have retired after 2010. I am just going to be grateful for ever chance I get to see them skate before they retire from eligible competition.

If they skate to Carmen - I will be riveted as always by the end of the season if not before. No matter who has skated to it before they will give it Tessa and Scott flair and finesse and it would indeed be different from so much they have done in the past.

And yes -there will be as many hate threads about it as the bandwidth here can take. I have never understood why haterz spend their energy hating instead of supporting the skaters they do like.
