    Michelle Kwan: Dante's Prayer; Fields of Gold; Winter, Winter Song; East of Eden; You Raise Me Up; Hands; Kissin' You; The World is Not Enough


    Johnny Weir: Imagine; My Way; Ave Maria; Fallen Angels Trio; Heartbroken; Poker Face; Nature Boy


    Robin Cousins: Satan Takes a Holiday (the old standard)

    And, THIS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpGOA3l57TY :encore: :swoon: Robin, perhaps the first skater to do Michael Jackson, before MJ became the famous Michael Jackson of Thriller fame!

    Interesting how the young Robin has a facial resemblance to Jeremy Abbott (and Robin is one of the skaters who inspired Jeremy)

    Kurt Browning: Singin' in the Rain; Brick House

    Jeremy Abbott: Rhythm of Love; Hometown Glory

    Christopher Bowman: Maria http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMRW1HmNiVI The classical side of Christopher! Highlights are his effortless 3axel, gorgeous Ina Bauer, his elegance, and the way he saved the landing on his 3lutz with such relative ease. Love what he's wearing too. RIP, Christopher.

    Basically all of Michelle's exhibitions take the cake for me. Those that are not yet listed which had the most effect on me were:

    1997 Worlds "Winter" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8i-KY1nuHY
    2000 Japan Open "Hands" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqVXK8xdpV0

    I feel that both above are under-appreciated and are really Kwan masterpieces. Apart from that "Dante's Prayer" and "Fields of Gold" were spectacular aswell

    I don't think that I saw any of their exhibitions from GP events (they were never televised in the US), but I still remember how I was completely captivated by their exhibition at 2000 Nationals.[/QUOTE]

    Thank you so much for posting this link! It evokes such a joy in me. In 2000, I taped that exhibition and played it over and over and over. I was so looking forward to watching Jamie and Justin skate for years to come. Oh, well.

    Of course the Michelle Kwan list which has been covered extensively (to reiterate: Dante's Prayer, Winter, Fields of Gold, East of Eden). I'll add her COI exhibition to Pocahontas as well. Incredible musicality and timing in that program. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbLdsAh7_cc.

    Others I loved through the years:

    Oksana Baiul: Feeling Begins, Sadness, Rock Around the Clock (duet w/ Victor Petrenko)

    Kristi Yamaguchi: It's Oh So Quiet (can't find video of it anywhere)

    Katarina Witt: I'm the Only One

    Kurt Browning: Singing in the Rain, Brick House

    Brian Boitano: Austin Powers

    Sasha Cohen: Hernando's Hideaway

    Sarah Hughes: Fosse

    Mao Asada: Ballade, Jupiter, Por Una Cabeza

    Adelina Sotnikova: Black Swan, Hernando's Hideaway

    Caroline Zhang: Lullaby for a Stormy Night

    I totally agree with you. Jeff Buttle is so awesome. His style is so beautiful. I could watch him skate for hours.

    Kurt Browning has had many memorable exhibitions. Nyah is probably my favourite but also loved That's Entertainment, Brickhouse, Raglan (the clown one).

    Must be aging myself, but the Calgary gala had some great ones Brian Orser's "Story of My Life" and Debi Thomas' "One More Try" to name a few.

    I have been lucky to have seen Kurt Browning live a lot and he always puts on a great show. I loved going to recorded shows and he talks to the audience...that is tons of fun.

    YES!!! I love this exhibition program from Kozuka!! I was hoping he would keep it again for this year since we didn't get to see too much of it last year. That spread eagle is to die for!!!!
