Johnny Weir: Imagine; My Way; Ave Maria; Fallen Angels Trio; Heartbroken; Poker Face; Nature Boy

And, THIS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpGOA3l57TY :encore: :swoon: Robin, perhaps the first skater to do Michael Jackson, before MJ became the famous Michael Jackson of Thriller fame!

Interesting how the young Robin has a facial resemblance to Jeremy Abbott (and Robin is one of the skaters who inspired Jeremy)

Christopher Bowman: Maria http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMRW1HmNiVI The classical side of Christopher! Highlights are his effortless 3axel, gorgeous Ina Bauer, his elegance, and the way he saved the landing on his 3lutz with such relative ease. Love what he's wearing too. RIP, Christopher.

In addition to those mentioned, I really really love Belbin and Agosto's "If It Kills Me" as it was such a great story, and they did it very well.

Basically all of Michelle's exhibitions take the cake for me. Those that are not yet listed which had the most effect on me were:

1997 Worlds "Winter" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8i-KY1nuHY
2000 Japan Open "Hands" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqVXK8xdpV0

I feel that both above are under-appreciated and are really Kwan masterpieces. Apart from that "Dante's Prayer" and "Fields of Gold" were spectacular aswell

I don't think that I saw any of their exhibitions from GP events (they were never televised in the US), but I still remember how I was completely captivated by their exhibition at 2000 Nationals (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_R0ZhW_kqo).[/QUOTE]

Thank you so much for posting this link! It evokes such a joy in me. In 2000, I taped that exhibition and played it over and over and over. I was so looking forward to watching Jamie and Justin skate for years to come. Oh, well.
