I would love to see I/K skating to Black Swan. Elena Ilinykh would be great
But Laura has got a new program choreographed to Besame Mucho last summer, why would she change it before debuting it?
The following 2011-12 program music news was published in Sarah/Drew's blog today (May 19): http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news

On Makarova channeling Monroe: I find her packaging is not age appropriate. Last season we had black lace cut down to there (yes with illusion, I know), and now that she’s 18, we get the full on sex symbol treatment with Monroe? Yuck.
If Tomas Verner is skating to Sing, Sing, Sing, he is also required to wear the Canadian Men’s Team Uniform – black T-shirt, black pants, silver belt.
I guess Alena Leonova was right when she said she didn't want to skate to the Black Swan soundtrack because everyone and their mother would want to use it this season.
Do you really think Ashley Wagner is the only person who will be using this music either this season or the next? Doubtful...The Matrix comes to my mind for some reason.

SP:Nothing Else Matters by David Garrett (choreographed by Jeffrey Buttle)
This year's most overused music at Worlds was "Feeling Good".
The piece is seventy-five minutes long...[l]ong enough for an idea to be developed, but not so long that one starts to measure the number of seats to the exits with desperation if the thing doesn’t work" -- Marina Harss
