    Is Aretha well enough to perform??

    I know this is very late, but does anyone have insider info into this? I am going tonight, and I wonder if anyone can give me a tip on how to get a picture with some skaters (or Aretha!) before or afterwards. Also, to take good pictures on my digital camera, are there any suggestions? I have only been to two skating events in my whole life, so I don't know the secrets to making it a great experience.

    Thanks in advance!

    Sinead and John Kerr appearing also. They enjoyed trying on what they will be wearing in the show and are thrilled to be appearing with Aretha, a singing legend.

    Are Mary Beth and Rockne going to be there?
    I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.

    Here's a link to Disson Skating's twitter. There are several quotes by skaters and links to their costumes.

    You know you're too much of a figure skating fan when I thought the title was referring to Yu-na because I misread Soul as "Seoul."

    Same here.

    I saw Olympic champ and queen of soul. First thing that came to my mind was "oh cool, Yuna's going to do another show besides the Harvard one."

    Loved Meryl's dress by Betsey Johnson!! And watching Betsey Johnson react to the skating was a highlight. She's adorable and got really into it.

    The G. Mendel clothes were absolutely perfect for skating. Won't be surprised if we end up seeing skating dresses by him, should he be interested...

    Show was lots of fun. It's my first show in a long time, and I'm really glad I went. Thinking about making the trek to South Bend for Brian Boitano's show.

    I took some pictures, but I'm sorry so many of them are blurry. But I figured everyone would be watching on tv in November, at least blurry is better than nothing until then...and hopefully someone who is a better photographer will add some more.

    Great show! Took video clips of some of the performances and recorded most of Meryl/Charlie's 2nd performance; will post the link once it's been uploaded to YouTube. [[ UPDATE ]] Here's the (new & working) video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Z8OG2sDrXY

    Thank you for the pictures, shameless! It's so hard to wait for months for an event to air that already happened. Yes, blurry pictures are always better than no pictures! Although I think your pictures came out quite nicely considering how hard it is to take pics of ice skating. I am over Meryl's hair in that 1st picture.
