SDs:
Sinitsina & Zhiganshin - I kinda like it! I feel bad for them in the sense that, while country western was technically an option, nobody expected anyone to actually use it!

Don't Orford/Williams use it too? They came to my mind immediately when I saw this dance.

Apparently their chosen music was 'Once Upon a Time in West' which is in the first part of the dance, and originally the whole dance was choreographed to it, but Tarasova didn't approve, and then they stuck this 'Tosca' version in the second half (pani already wrote about it).

:wall::wall::wall:

TAT has already ruined two programmes this season... I'd rather see a complete Morricone free dance than this atrocity with Marton and Tosca thrown at random... not to mention R/T's Pink Floyd that remained just a plan... :mad:

R/T' Pink Floyd was choreographed and apparently they said that they might use it as an exhibition piece... I hope it is true, I would really like to see them doing something different.

I also wish they dump the first have of their SD to "My fair lady" and re-do the entire dance in the character of "With a little bit of luck". It looked good to me and they seem to have an ability to pull off such a comic character-driven dance.

Starygina/Volobiev - why is there a sudden witch doctor popularity :confused:

Because they only bought one new CD & they're passing it around?

Last year's horrible piece of music was Blah Blah Cha Cha that about 6 teams used

The King is on the ice.

He's showed up in a new and interesting costume (https://twitter.com/PlushenkoNews/status/246969267680051200).

According to reports on Twitter (https://twitter.com/PlushenkoNews/status/246972243740078080):


RT @VasilyKonov: @EvgeniPlushenko skated brilliantly. Salchow with 4 turns with a small blot on the way out. Seven triple Axel's perfectly.

I presume the first bit means he did 4S, but I'm a bit confused by the seven triple Axels. Did he leave out every other jump and just do 3As in their place? :confused:

I'm almost hoping they meant 7 triple jumps, because if Plushenko landed 7 triple axels in one routine... :eek:

If he landed 7 triple Axels in one routine everyone can just fall at his feet now and bow before him, because that would mean they've found a way to bulletproof his body :lol:

I think 7 triples is a more likely thing.

Loved that :smokin: Great unison and they look in good shape. But ugh, the new lift rules make even Tatiana's look ugly!

That was smoking hot. I feel the need for a cigarette.

I've already sworn not to comment about the lifts this season. I will cry when I see Vera forced to do them.
