    Thanks for the link to the Exhibition.

    I didn't really like his programmes last season, but this vocal version of "Bring Him Home" is beautiful. Jeremy is quite the arteeeeeeste.

    I really love the Vocal version of Bring Him Home-it's more majestic. I've read comments about how Jeremy can improve the revised LP....but what does Jeremy need to do with his SP? It hasn't been scoring well.

    I personally like his SP v. much. The music is quite "subdued", but Jeremy does such a great job at interpreting it. I like the subtlety ... on the other hand, I don't know what he was doing last season in the short programme (where he was obviously trying to portraying some kind of detective ... not a particularly cool one though I didn't think )

    anyway, his SP deserves more respect from the judges.

    To me the SP seems to be only jumps and crossovers- then, halfway through, the choreo starts.

    I'm sure it will develop more between now and Nationals. I wish he had another competition before Nationals. It might help the SP.

    It makes me wonder what the original SP this year was like (the Let Yourself Go one)

    Thanks Sylvia. I love the pix of him at 2007 Four Continents. Gosh, Jeremy and Buttle looked so incredibly young and cute.

    No. Of course I’m doing this to win, but I want to know what each time I am done skating I’ve performed the best I possibly could. I’m not trying to be Patrick [Chan]’s best or Javier [Fernandez]’s best, I’m just trying to be Jeremy's best.”
    That should be the way, Jeremy. You are unique in your own way. Every skater bring different strengths and skills to the ice. I still believe you can medal if you put everything together at that crucial hour. All the best.

    Probably his best performance since 2012 Nationals? Seems he really relates to this music. Hope it works at Nationals.

    Love the exhibition and the free skate. Don't know why the short isn't scoring that well but it could be his need to concentrate on the quad and 3A at the expense of the choreography.

    how wonderful it would be for Abbott to go to Sochi.

    while an individual medal would be extremely difficult, a team medal is not beyond the realms of possibility. wouldn't that be a beautiful way to end a long career.

    Good luck. Believe in yourself. You are definitely a talent and wouldn't be among the top, if you are not.

    Are there any reports on his training? Is he landing a quad consistently? His artistry is always great but the jumps and nerves have been an issue.

    Jeremy skated his "Lilies of the Valley" SP in last night's DSC show - fan cam video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHTaoIVGTog

    Video captured from the live stream (some glitchy moments): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1tUauLWth0

    ETA this eloquent post from the DSC show thread in GSD :

    Glad that he changed "Pina" arrangement, it sounds edgies, looks edgies; movement, music and personality are much more together.
    I'll never know how much of it is his instinctive talent and how much conscious choice, but when there is a disconnect between him and music (which is almost never), he feels it and adjusts. Jeremy might not have often delivered at big events, but he never failed in his musicality. I was not sure what exactly is this year's SP, and slight adjustments put it all together. I hope he sticks with this version for the Nationals.

    Yo, what's with Jeremy not getting a pre-US Championships teleconference on IceNetwork? Is USFSA throwing shade? (PSA: Aaron, Rippon, Miner and Brown all got one)
