I can't believe I forgot Yuakari Nakano. Here is her performance.

Every time I watch her perform, I feel sad that she never won a world or Olympics medal.

Just curious, is there any reason you picked Patrick Chan's 2010 Olympic version instead of 2011 Canadian or World?

This is the one I found easily. I was pretty tired by that time and did not spend more time looking for more.

Drobiazko & Vanagas FD of 2006 season.
Their Euros performance was better than Olys IMO.

My 2 favorites were Dorothy Hamill's & Watson & Oppegard's exhibition, forget what year but think it was when they first turned pro.

I voted for Drobiazko & Vanagas, Davis & White, and Chan. Some of the others, I can't remember, or they didn't at all move me. Chan's wouldn't be on my list of favourite programs ever, but it was good.

Even though it's widely criticized, I really enjoy Patrick Chan's POTO program and still watch it occasionally. It was well-constructed, and I liked his interpretation.

If we include juniors, I voted other for Chock/Zuerlain -they just seemed to come out of nowhere for me - I think this is the first time I saw them - and I really loved that FD - couldnt believe they came from S/Z. Then sadly, they seemed to completely change as seniors and just kind of faded.

If it's just seniors - Drobiazko/Vanagas - I love the way the really felt the music!

If we include juniors, Sinitsina-Zhiganshin are skating to this music this year.

I often think of Music of the Night as Brian Boitano's signature piece. I still remember his exhibition/pro skating to this, with those gorgeous spread eagles that went so well with this music.
