    I feel that's going to be a trend next season.:shuffle: Apparently, Ashley Wagner is skating to the same music...

    Anybody got videos?

    Stephane Lambiel seems to have skated to "Prelude in G minor" by Rachmaninoff.

    The TV program of DOI was broadcasted today, but Stephane's performance was not contained.
    But even among Japanese players who participated only the performance of the relatively prosperous players was contained because the air time was short as 1 hour.
    In July 9th JST, the TV program of DOI in the satellite broadcasting is being scheduled. Because that air time is longer than today as one hour and 55 minutes, I look forward to his performance, too.
    Then it may be that somebody will share his video.

    Are Takahashi/Tran prosperous skaters?:shuffle:

    I really like the fact that in the end they broadcast all the show anyway.:)

    Just came back from the arena and it was fun.
    It's a show during off season yet there were 3A+3A by Hanyu, 4T by Lambiel, and Kozuka doing footwork and spin on hockey blades, not to mention many fabulous new programs. :cheer:

    That's a typo right?

    He didn't really land a 3A/3A...

    No, it is not a typo. Were you there tonight? I saw he landing 3A+3A sequence in the program as many other fans. If it was not, what was it?

    ETA: my bad, it was not in the program but during the opening.

    I'm not calling you a liar or anything.

    I just thought you might've meant to type 3a/3t or something.

    3a/3a is a little unbelievable, but if that's what you saw fine, I won't question it.

    Don't take so much offense. I'm just surprised is all.

    ETA: I suppose my above post is probably rather confusing. I meant to edit it and then didn't (got distracted by a game). I guess the phrase I meant to write was 'surely, he didn't land a 3a/3a?...

    I heard that it was a 3A-half-loop-3A. That's pretty amazing.

    Unbelievable, right? That's exactly why I posted :). Just amazing.

    ETA: oh I see. I had taken your post like you were there and you saw something different.

    Roxanne, it was not with half-loop, but just with one step from the landing foot to the taking off foot.

    Thanks for info! Amazing! 3A-3A by Hanyu and Lambiel still jumping quads :D. Was it good and clean one? Did anyone else jump quad?
    Who's new program did you like?

    Sorry for the confusion. I'm usually better about posting what I intend right away, but sometimes my posts do need edits. I don't always type complete thoughts before submitting.

    Okay, that confuses me. Can you clarify what you mean by that? The way I'm reading it is that he did 3axel then a reverse 3 axel?

    That has to be it right? Because I thought you couldn't do a 3axel and then another 3axel in combo on the same takeoff foot without a loop or toe loop in between.

    midori posted above that Hanyu landed a "3A+3A sequence" -- NOT a combination.

    Thanks to everyone who has posted reports!

    This video looks like it features more clips from the DOI show, plus an interview with Miki Ando: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ak9tf1Fv0K8

    I am not confident a little whether it is suitable exactly to have called the player who was broadcasted the relatively prosperous skater, but the performance of Takahashi & Tran was broadcasted in June 26th.

    The TV program which was broadcasted in June 26th seems to have been recorded in June 25th because Miki Ando skated to the exhibition program, not "Black Swan" but "I am a Thousand Winds".

    3A+3A looked good, on one foot without step-out, but it was near the opposite end on the near side, so I cannot tell much. Same for Lambiel's 4T but I think it was slightly over-turned.

    I only saw one show (the last one) and none of them tried quad during the programs, but after the final vow, Hanyu, Lambiel, and Mura landed 4T. Stephane looked very happy when landed.
    Hanyu and Mura also tried another quad (sal and lutz, I think) but both failed. Daisuke Murakami also attemped 4T but IIRC he fell on it.

    The prelude by Stephane was marvelous. The arena went complete silence during the program. When he exhaled at the end, I could clearly hear the sound of the air even though I was at 30 meter away from him.

    Kanako's new exhibition was beautiful and finally it is suitable for her age.

    Yuuki Nisihino got big improvement on her posture and now she is a beautiful lady skater. Same for Haruka.

    Yuzuru's 3A was huge, especially in distance.

    Some said Oda's new program reminds them Jeffrey Buttle and I agree with it.

    Thanks everybody for the reports :) I can't wait to see a lot of the programs and am very glad that they will eventually be aired. Watching the video of Stephane's new program to Rach's Prelude in G from Art on Ice Shanghai gave me chills and that was with a lot of the camera switching back and forth between Lang Lang and Stephane. I'm very glad that he's keeping it as an actual exhibition piece this season and I can't wait to see it in full!
