    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1C_kinmd1g Here's Michal's SP. Spins look somewhat improved. However, it worries me that none of his jumps here are performed as planned (the LP wasn't much better). Not a fan of the costume or the stubble at all either :yikes:

    Cool. I'm looking forward to the cuts of music she uses. I hope it is different than Ashley's (I love Ashley, but hope the programs emphasize different pieces).

    Hopefully Mao is able to up her consistency this year.

    I hope that Mao's swan will be traditional and not voidy like Arakawa used to do. You never know from these Japanese ladies. :) This is a great choice for Mao, if she sticks to flowing, traditional style.

    I don't think Mao has range to do anything other than traditional. :p
    Allen and (deleted member) like this.

    It seems that Asada and Sotnikova has already 3 programs the same:
    Ladies in lavender, Lieberstraume and now apparently the Swan lake

    And Esquivel's arrangement of Scheherazade! :lol: It seems that TAT loves certain pieces of music so much that she keeps giving them to a few skaters in a row. :cold:
    I've been secretly hoping for Mao to skate to Swan Lake since 2006 (her sister Mai had lovely program to SL, but she didn't qualify for Worlds...), so I'm OK with this choice. :D

    WOW!

    Chock/Bates' Dr. Shivago FD is pure magic* A mesmerizing performance from these two. :inavoid: It'll be interesting to see how the USFSA scores the top four teams @ US Nats. Maybe we'll see a team from Zueva, a team from Shpilban, and a team from Camerlengo/krylova go to worlds.

    Otoh, what a F***ed up program from Zhiganshina/Gazsi :scream: Their coach HATES them. It's the only explanation!

    What is their music?

    That part when he cracks her neck (am I right to assume he's Jack the Ripper? :confused: ) and he thinks he has killed her... err major FAIL :shuffle:

    I think it's Imai's SP that's to "Charade".

    You are right...they blurred during the weekend.
    I think it is Mozart...finishing with something very familiar...like Eine kleine Nachtmusik..but I may be wrong with the last piece. It is Mozart for sure

    Z&G are Zombies coming out of the grave and dancing in the cemetery. It was choreographed, so their bio says, by Averbukh.

    seems like i´m the only one likeing der new fd.
    i´m so pleased with totally new lifts.
    theire lifts the last seasons were all the same and kind of unspectacular compared to the top teams. so they improved by that.

    i really like the idea and hope they can move on with great results in gp

    I like the concept, the music, and the costumes...there is just a lack of tension in the choreography that makes it fall flat for me. I think the program has a ton of potential, I just hope they can realize it.

    Thank you Doris. It makes sense now, well at least the neck twisting part of the choreography. :eek:

    The concept was interesting, a FD about flesh eating Zombies looks pretty cool on paper, but the actual execution of that concept was not!

    AND the costumes OMG the costumes!!!!! :yikes: :wuzrobbed

    I agree about Z&G's FD.

    Good concept and some actual original choreography (gasp!), but they just don't deliver it convincingly.

    I also think the music cuts don't help.

    It's interesting that 2 different teams on two different continents think not only I want to do a Zombie program, but I want to do a Zombie program to Rama Lama Bang Bang by Roisin Murphy/

    I like Z&G new FD including the costumes, it's a bit Tim Burton-esque. They just need to skate it better.

    I could hardly recognize him with the goatee!
    Is this choreographed by Camerlengo?

    Do you mean this year's FDs? I didn't know that another team had the same concept and music. Who are they?

    By the way, Averbukh originally did a choreography to this music for Albena Denkova and her partner in his 2009 'Ice Age' show (something like 'Skating with Stars'), then Denkova and Staviski had it as a exhibition piece. This year he reused it in the 'Ice Age: Cup of Professionals' show for Elena Leonova and Maxim Shabalin. As for 'Tore My Heart' that is used in the first part of the dance, in another Averbukh's show 'Ice and Fire' (skating and dancing) Yagudin and his partner had a dance (somewhat Tim Burton's 'Corpse Bride' themed :D) choreographed to it for them. Actually there was a dance choreographed to this song in the american 'So You Think That You Can Dance' show first, but the dance in Averbukh's show was not a copy of it.

    I don't know about the other team, but the ones that I was talking about here are the German ice dancers Nelli Zhiganshina and Alexander Gazsi -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UC503ATWycw .

    The Junior team, Lorraine McNamara & Quinn Carpenter, are doing a Zombie SD on the JGP circuit, to Ramalama bang bang for their SD.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uj1aXkNixkY

    Here they are at JGP Istanbul (caution: the rink acoustics at Istanbul are crappy)

    I don't think copying is going on, just that it's a funny coincidence.

    It's "Ramalama (Bang Bang)". ;)

    Three guesses!

    Looks like Tat has been taking Recycling tips from Morozov.
    At least she is honest about it, even though she is surely turning into the female version of Lori Nichols from Russia :lol:

    Tat did a memorable version for Sasha a while back, and of course there's the most memorable version by Baiul to compare with. It would be interesting to see how this latest version will rank among all the great swan lakes of the past. She couldn't have picked a better balletic skater to do this classic justice. I just hope it won't be ends up another happy and jolly white Swan like Mao's Scheherazade last year.

    I skated to that music a few years ago, before I saw it from SYTYCD. Zombies was the last thing that came to my mind. Sorry but I do think there is some copying going on.

    There was a french team that used it a few years ago too. They didn't do zombies.

    I love Roisin Murphy. I think I have used about 3 of her songs for skating programs.
