    US Nat'ls: skaters might choose pre-skate music (your choices for fav skaters?)

    http://twitter.com/#!/PiperGilles
    PiperGilles tweet: "I just heard that at usa nationals you can pick what music you want to be played before you compete. I think we should do that too #WhoaisMe"

    Anyone else hear news of this?

    It sounds like at 2012 US Nationals, the skaters have a chance to choose what music is played before they compete. I'm guessing that's the song that's played as the skater-before-them is in the kiss/cry awaiting their marks.

    If it's true, it's kinda nice for the skaters to get to supply their own-pre-skate pump-up song. I'm assuming it wouldn't be like boxing / other fighting sports where they play 20+ seconds of music as you enter the arena -- but instead just the song played in the arena (to help fill the silence) as the skaters await their scores at the kiss/cry. Right?

    What theme-song / pump-up song would you choose for your favorite skaters?

    Given how many tweens and early teens are competing, I'm just hoping that there isn't too much Kei$ha, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, etc. Otherwise, this could be a fun touch to the competition for both fans and skaters.

    I think I'd play the Sherlock Holmes soundtrack for Ricky, just for old times' sake.

    I think it would be fun to pick something really really random. Because the TV will focus on the kiss and cry skater, not the warming up one- and people watching will think it is THEIR music.

    /but I have a weird sense of humor like that...
