    Not sure why I haven't seen this yet, I need some of this in my life.

    They hit it big, got on Ellen, and are now touring with Elton John.

    I am using this version of Madonna's Power of Goodbye for one of my skaters this year. It has been very well recieved, even by judges.

    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    I saw them on Ellen. Don't care to listen to people play mordern music on a cello but they were smoking hot, especially one of them.

    I can only think of how much it must cost to get their bows rehaired.

    Being a cello player myself, I think anything to make the cello cool is a good thing.

    The number of skaters using "classical" (string quartet tribute, 2 Cellos or otherwise) versions of popular songs makes me wish they could just skate to what they loved without vocal music restrictions.

    I love orchestrated versions of popular music (well, not all songs are worthy of the treatment, and not all orchestrations are good, but in general...).

    I like this with audio only, but the overly dramatik expressions and flailing are just

    I was in a dance piece with orchestrated Paul McCartney songs (orchestrated by Sir Paul himself)...the original songs would not have been effective for the piece, and the orchestration actually made me like some songs I previously didn't.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    Talking about orchestrated versions of popular music, Time for three (a string trio) is AMAZING.

    The mind of the performer is a very strange thing.
