    I didn't find them in the entries for U.S. Senior International, but we still have a hope for Nebelhorn and Finlandia Trophy. Maybe...

    Yes, I love it, too.)))

    Why can't we have dance battles for Nationals?

    It would make the galas so much more interesting! I've always wanted a twizzle-off, but dance battles would be even better.

    We have a couple pics from Champs Camp so far, courtesy of John Couglin's twitter:

    Love that 2nd one! I want to edit the other guys out and frame the picture of Charlie.

    Ditto. That cowboy look really does fit Charlie! "Smokin" would be an underestimation.

    And about the dance battle I have just one thing to say: Meryl's hair. WOW. That girl is just gorgeous in her own way.

    Seriously, how hot/beautiful can a dance team be? The ice is gonna melt!

    Thanks for the links, Piper! Those were two of my favorites as well. Can I just say...Meryl has the best style. I just want her outfits, all of them. Even the Western one :lol:

    I guess we should be getting a music announcement soon, eh? ;)

    That's an early practice video (1st one of 3) of a run-through of their Polovtsian Dances FD from the 2006-07 season, right? There was some discussion about it here earlier in this thread :): http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?p=3619617#post3619617

    Part 2 of the practice run-through: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPzfcg1K7DI
    End: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOfm8gsc0Ek

    There's a shot of Meryl and another national champions' group shot from yesterday in this Tuesday at Champs Camp gallery: http://web.icenetwork.com/photos/gallery.jsp?content_id=37145750

    So did they pick their clothes, or were the clothes provided? I thought the "couple-y" pictures where Meryl's shirt said "We Are Young, But It's Real" were odd, especially in light of this quote:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/11/f...-endorsements-follow.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all

    I really liked that quote of Meryl's because it seemed like she wasn't going to let the figure skating media/world force them to look like a couple just because that's the most expedient thing to do in ice dancing (if you're aren't siblings). I know it's not a big deal, but I thought it was cool that D/W were trying to buck that trend. These pics don't really jive with that.

    Otherwise, thanks for the link!

    How are they supposed to pose - standing ten feet apart? :lol: They're an ice dancing "couple." I thought the shots were cute and didn't think they looked like they pretending to be in love or anything. If they'd be in each other's faces making googly eyes, then that would be a different story. ;)

    Ditto. I didn't think they were pretending to be in love. They have to do a bit of "playing the character" if they are going to pose in ballroom dance poses. And I can't even read Meryl's shirt...

    Maybe like the way the posed in the other 2 sets? Obviously not 10 feet apart.

    I don't have any problem with playing the character in ballroom poses. I just thought that particular set didn't seem very "them," but that's just my opinion. I really liked the other ones.

    The pics are awesome. They look amazing. I don't care how they pose, we know what their relationship is like and I love the couple poses just because they look so incredible together!

    Music announcement, please?

    Thanks for the link. I like the photo shoot idea. They look great. USFS should do this every year :)

    Last year, I believe there were interviews after the program. I'm not sure when those showed up on youtube.

    I can't wait to hear about the FD music. I've been quite relieved that it isn't going to be Sinatra. I'm crossing my fingers and toes that it isn't going to be anything remotely close to Sinatra. By this I mean anything from this list http://www.amazon.com/The-Ultimate-Crooner-Collection/dp/B0028FMG0C :scream:

    I expect they wouldn't rule out Sinatra and then go with something essentially the same.

    Maybe you've never had your picture taken by a professional photographer, Sap5, but I have and they position and pose you in different ways that they think will photograph well or create a mood or impression.
    i think you may be reading too much into a staged photo...Meryl and Charlie are very upfront and honest about their relationship, I don't think that means they can't have a little fun with their photoshoot.

    I would never notice it without your post, and even then I had to look twice. :D
    If they wanted to point it out, it probably would be seen better at the pictures.
    I looove that they are posing as dancers here.))

    I'm not sure about the skirt, but I adore the second outfit. :rollin:

    You know what I find very confusing about all the mis-information about FD music is that they still haven't changed the FD music notice on Meryl and Charlie's profile page on Icenetwork. If it's really a mistake wouldn't you think they would have taken it down by now?

    I guess we'll hear confirmation once and for all this week. But it's all very strange.

    :confused:

    The "western" pictures look great, BTW. Meryl always picks the best outfits.

    I'm not really sure what to expect this year. Judging from what happened in the past years, they are probably not going to confirm anything if the USFS doesn't like it.

    Hopefully that means it went well and they won't change their FD so they can tell us all now? :p

    People are all okay with Carmen now, whatever D/W pick could surely benefit from having some time to stew among the skating world's minds. :D

    I think it's more a case of accepting reality and remaining positive and hopeful they will make it work. There really isn't much else to do as throwing tantrums didn't make them change FF last year.

    Any theories on whether or not we'll hear about Meryl/Charlie's music choices before the end of champs camp? (I keep trying to type camps champs, :lol: )

    I figured we'd get news this week but it almost seems like the ice dancers aren't even there as there has been so little news on them. Maybe more articles will show up today.

    Speculation?!?

    My guess is we won't hear anything (unless something leaks) until they've been given an absolute go-ahead with their programs. I wonder if we might end up waiting a week or two longer.

    You know, I wouldn't mind a Space Jam FD. ;) Just kidding. Although no one can deny it's got a dance beat!

    Do you think Meryl's part was completely staged? Because some of their reactions (especially Charlie's and Evan's) are gems. :rofl:

    I think Meryl's part was totally staged…looks like she was really into it.

    Who needs "team building" games when you have the Shibs? That was hilarious.
