    Happy Carolina is skating in more international shows than ever. She's participating in JSOI this spring but I can't remember when she skated in Japanese shows last time. Lucky, US fans!

    Intermssion now. Can't wipe the smile off my face. Jonathan Cassar's spread eagles! I'm dead. Also, Johnny Weir can just step aside with the arteeste schtick, Rohene Ward's got that covered. With a nude bodysuit with vines on it, skating to Adagio for Strings. :cheer:

    Was Rachael Flatt only in the afternoon show? She appears to be MIA from your photos and vids. I miss the gal and was hoping she didn't disappear from the skating scene completely.

    Oops, I have a partial video of her program and it didn't upload. I'll add it to my album! She used the music from her 2008-09 long program by Lefevre.

    Thank you for sharing! Adam & Jonathan were two I was most interested in seeing, along with Shawn Sawyer...did you happen to get any video of him? Or can you describe his program?

    I'm sorry I didn't get Shawn on video :( He did Alegria from Cirque du Soleil and was great! The headstand on the ice was incredible as were the spirals and spins we've come to love from him. :)

    I liked Adam's jazzy SP too! He also attempted a 3ax without stalking it and I was like, "Is this real life?" :lol:Underrotated and stepped out but at least he tried!

    Also, they introduced Rachael as a senior at Stanford and I thought, "Man, how time flies!"

    That's ok! It wasn't a new program, so no biggie. :) I do love Alegria, though. I appreciate your report.

    How about Carolina Kostner? You don't mention her. I know she get injured with booth-change and had to stop training about 2-3 weeks ago

    She skated to a vocal version of Ave Maria without any jumps. Very beautiful!

    The music was Romantic Rhapsody by Andre Mathieu, Lefevre was the pianist. This was Flatt's winning LP at 2008 Jr Worlds. (and she returned to it just for 2009 Worlds in LA)
