    Let's face it. Team Gold won't be going for anything avant-garde this tension filled Olympic season. So which warhorse will prevail??? :watch:

    You didn't include a tango/flamenco number? I voted "something else," perhaps Maleguena? :p I can see it now - big flower in the hair (pulled back tight), with a red and black lace dress. And big ruffles at the end of the sleeves to accuentate those sharp arm movements!

    It will probably be a Lori Nichol re-tread. Let's hope it's not Slaughter on Tenth Avenue!

    Maybe they will choose Techno music. It is non-descript, non-recognizable and if she uses it, everyone will think she is so "cutting edge."

    However, absent that, let's choose music from the ballet Don Quixote. She can do the Kitri variations section, as well as the paus de deux.

    They could call it "The Best of Gold", but then Plushy would probably blow a gasket.

    Since Gold has already broken 'new' (if your musical tastes are limited to Celine Dion) ground, she should continue down that road and get a super voidy program to Crystal Castles "Doe Deer". :cheer:

    Wait! I hear you say. But it's only 1:36.

    Indeed, it is. :(

    Worry not! Using the magic of digital audio editing, she could pair it up with The Knife "Full of Fire" for the slower parts, to provide much needed light and shade and variety in the choreography.

    As an atonement for her idiotic twitter comment, the program would be queer-themed, featuring an androgynous costume and styling, blurring racial, gender and sexual lines. Gold's program would be an examination of oppressive social norms and it would slowly build up to a "Doe Deer" backed outburst of rage against the cultural hegemony, expressed through a circular step sequence featuring a lot of ott crazy arm flailing, possibly resulting in grievous bodily harm to the judges caught in the firing line as Gold moves closer to the boards. In the final pose, Gold would tear off all of her clothes and just stand there, naked and vulnerable with 'MANIFEST DESTINY' written on her body in red and blue marker.

    Quite a lot of transitions, pretty much constant upper body movement, done to the music most of the time. It definitely isn't 'all_empty' unlike most of the other programs out there. ;)

    The music is big and powerful and it suits her skating style. Yes it's a ballet but it isn't a languid longato piece. It's a good program and she should keep it.

    So many fantastic ideas! :cheer:

    Radeva's "CAW CAW CAW" program is an absolute legend. It's up there with Vassileva's Bollywood FS. Definitely something for Gold to draw inspiration from. Could she possibly choreograph even more posing in her new SP? We will see!

    As for taking a page out of Schultheiss's book, she could go for something like Margaret Berger's strait-jacket dress, lots of frantic arm movements and angsty facial expressions. Being a proud American, she could mash-up the Prodigy's track with something by Skrillex.

    Who are we kidding, it's going to be Malaguena, isn't it? :p

    I think Carroll is smart enough to realise tinkly elevator piano muzak won't suit Gold who isn't a very balletic skater. She needs something powerful, with a strong beat. Easiest choice would be Malaguena, Carmen, Adios Nonino, something out of that list so I bet on something along those lines.

    I thought her SP was very good this season. R.I.P. :(

    Even though I couldn't stand the musical arrangement of her SP, I'm actually surprised that it is being changed because Skate Canada proved that if she skates it well, the judges will reward her. Besides, it's the LP that really isn't working for her; she hasn't skated it anywhere close to clean this season and the music choice and costuming is the polar opposite to her style of skating. At least the SP matched her immature, non-balletic style. :shuffle:

    It isn't. Sleeping Beauty is a powerful piece of music with a strong beat and accents. It's a good choice for her (and the program is very well choreographed).

    Watching Gracie's long programme this year makes me miss Angela Nikodinov's interpretation of Sleeping Beauty :( ... all Angela had to do was a few crossovers and the audience would be mesmerized :(

    I miss Angela dearly. And I don't know if we'll ever see a Nikodinov type again under COP.....:( Her appeal was her simplicity.
