I realize that Johnny Weir has alienated a lot of people with his personality. He has repeatedly asserted his belief that politics deprived him of an Olympic medal. His spats with and negative comments about Evan Lysacek have also drawn the ire of many in the figure skating community.
However, despite all those shortcomings, I still enjoy Johnny's skating. And that's what I would like to focus this discussion on while excluding all mention of Johnny's public persona. For those of you who like me take pleasure in Johnny's skating, what programs of his are your favorites? What do you think are the qualities that make Johnny's skating appealing? I ask this because while I find his skating sensuous and exquisite, I have trouble articulating what technical aspects make it so. And last but not least, what other male skaters have a style similar to Johnny's? This is the most urgent question for me personally because I have a feeling that there are so many male skaters out there with a mesmerizing, gorgeous, and breathtakingly beautiful style that I haven't yet discovered. The only other such skater that I know of is Stéphane Lambiel.
