Wow, there was a wonderful Viktor Petrenko before Galina Z and her daughter, Nina entered the picture! Thanks for that revelation. For goodness sake! Don't tell me, heck, was that the reason Petrenko's choreo and technique slowly began to suffer?!!! Aaargh ... sending out a "hint, hint" to the unmentionable one ... You seem to be making a brilliant point here. ITA! Come on, at this point, of course Plush is his own coach, very similar to Roger Federer! Mishin is more now like the attendants that used to come on stage at the height of James Brown's frenzied but masterful performances, and mop JB's brow and cover him with his kingly robe, which of course was all a strategically planned dramatic ploy to further entice the audience. The King would suddenly throw off the robe, push aside the attendants, grab the microphone and keep on singing and dancing.
