Probably the Short Dance?

SD Bei Mir Bist Du Schön, Sixteen Tons, Sing Sing Sing
FD Swan Lake
I can't see Audrey Hepburn having anything to do with 16 Tons
I guess it is the Tom Jones version that so many of the juniors are using?
Super choices! I wonder if they'll be in full balletic costumes -- i.e., stick-out tutu for her -- as they did with the Don Q ballet FD a few years ago?

What a superb performance and such wonderful choreography?
Vodka!!!!lol I suggest Moonshine or White lightning. lmao.
At least they can't add cringeworthy voiceovers to Swan Lake.
Or can they?
No voiceovers in Ilinykh/Katsalapov's FD (at least for now) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeYO_LpDrVs&feature=youtu.be (part 1), http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iA-6VzGPfo&feature=youtu.be (part 2), http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asEdxELPets (part 3) (reposted from the 'From Russia with love' thread - thanks to morqet)

Ilinykh is on two feet a lot during the beginning of the FD.
Leonova as Carmen?
As for I/K - well, on the basis of the posted fragments, their free dance has some potential. They finally have new lifts! And they cannot add any dramatic shouts to the music, so I'm generally pleased . Maybe this season I'll be able to restore some faith in them. Only just a bit, as long as they stay with Sticky Nicky .
I like I&K's FD, but there really wasn't much there outside of the elements, and they still skate really far apart.
The lifts are spectacular though.
At least Leonova was selling her programs. Who cares about intereresting choreography or detailed interpretation anymore?
I love Leonova's choices, as unimaginative as they are. Even though she says her Carmen will be a more "classical" interpretation, I am hoping for some OTT moments. She looks great and mentioned eating and being in shape for the fall, so I am cautiously optimistic. I will be bold and says she makes a somewhat convincing case to make the Olympics team.
