    I witnessed it personally - it was not Plushenko's show it was Lambiel's show!!
    Steph was the only one who did encore - if he didn't the ceiling of the Palace would come down!!

    I had a co-worker who had Weir's look -- slender, wavy brown, but not dark-brown hair, a bit pretty, if not as pretty as Weir -- and wasn't remotely famous or well-dressed, and each time he went to Japan for work, he had a gaggle of young Japanese women admirers. I was pretty astonished the first time I heard about this, but apparently, his look was highly prized. A close friend who didn't look as delicate, but had the same general look, was routinely swarmed when he went to a bar in Tokyo where Japanese woman went to meet Western men, and he met his wife there.

    FYI, this just mirrors a very famous world tour of male ballet stars, "Kings of Dance." So Kings of Dance becomes Kings of Ice. Like "Three Tenors" morphed into "Three Mo' Tenors" and "Three Irish Tenors."

    It sounds fantastic. I am only wondering how Johnny Weir did the first two shows in Russia, then is doing the 'Ice Dreams' show in Chicago today, then the 3rd Kings show in Russia tomorrow? I hope that Johnny is eating his Wheaties.

    LOL, Libra what Plushenko has done to you??? Stood you up?? Your posts are most of the time about him. Strange for someone you dont seem to enjoy much as a skater.

    Really guys are you so compepetitive in everything? You went to a show and the one thing you mention is that someone got more applause than Plushenko? That was your concern? That was the pleasure of it?
    Did anyone applause Plush in AOI or I d better not ask? I m sure they didnt notice he was there.
    The videos you posted here are really nice and it seems whatever is said the audience is loud in Plushenko as well.
    Really anything more interesting there???

    I believe that Johnny's management confirmed that his two shows were his only KOI shows. He's not going back.

    What's wrong with sharing an observation?

    Unfortunately I didn't attend the last AOI but judging from the video the star of that show also was Lambiel. In Zurich is was only natural but in Moscow it was a surprise ! Because 9 out of 10 Russians know the only figure skater - Plushenko. The more so after OG when he was showered with Media state- inspired hysterical attention. The people who sat next to me on the show came to see Plushenko and brought him flowers. But eventually they gave those flowers to Lambiel, and looked visibly shaken

    I was at the Zurich show on March 4th. Plushenko got tons of applause there.

    I was surprised how much actually....considering I am not much of a fan of Plushenko...:shuffle:

    A friend of mine attended the AOI in Lausanne on March 8. He said the stars of that night were Lambiel and Plushenko. He is not a figure skating fan, but he was deeply impressed by Evgeni's jumps and stephane's spins that day.
    Back to the show in Moscow, were there many audience? In St.Petersbrug tickets seemd sell well but I guess the metro bomb attack tragedy might affect tickets selling in Moscow.

    The show in Moscow was not sold out, but the arena was 80% full. However, from what I heard, the attendance was higher in Moscow.

    They told me St Peters had also almost full attendance but maybe it is a smaller arena?? Moscow was in Megastar? Where the Gran Prix takes place usuallY?

    It is at 20.00. :)
    wow Dennis Ten also there?
    I need to make these posters, they have wrapped them like christmas trees.:duh:

    Yes, it was in Megasport in Moscow. Just where Rostel cup was this year. Something like 14 thousand sets. It was almost full.
    The show was great! Esp. the 4 Kings number! People couldn't help clapping and screaming all the time four guys were on the ice.
    And TV was there. So, I believe, they will broadcast it soon in good quality. If i don't miss it i will record and put on you tube.

    I attended the Stockholmice show this afternoon. It was overall great but became magic when Plushenko entered the arena. He and Lambiel were the shining stars without doubt. It is also Stephane´s 25th birthday today, so we all sang Happy birthday for him. :) But the highlight for me was Plushenko skating to "Je suis malade". I just love this program! I hope he will do more in this direction in the future. He is simply the best (amazing how he´s doing triple axels in exhibitions). The cutest of the night was however 9 year old Nikolaj Majorov from Luleå in the north of Sweden. Fabulous talent. He did among other things a spectacular cantilever.
