    well,Artristy invite her just to promote their cosmetics,to get attention for their goods.whether she can skate, know figure skating or not isn't important.unlike some ice show,ArOI nearly only depand on Artristy's support,not the boxoffice.Artristy needs return on investment.last year,they invited several TV stars from south korea and america too.

    I think it's acceptable

    Figure skating needs all the help it can get when it comes to promotion so having someone like Katie Holmes endorsing it is amazing. When was the last time a Hollywood star was the name associated with a show? Kudos to the Chinese for making this happen.

    i wonder if she can skate...
    They asked her at the show if she skates, she said not really but she enjoys watching skaters. She also said something along the lines that she understands and appreciates the amount of work to become a skater.

    Cameras are not allowed into the stadium tonight so I guess my iPhone will have to do.

    Every time I have tried, my camera has been confiscated, and once they erased all my photos and once damaged the lens while at the drop off place. I will not be trying again.

    Really. I don't know about Shanghai, but they seem pretty strict at Capital Gymnasium. It's not worth lugging my camera across the city - I'll just enjoy the show

    It seems 50% of the people were not allowed cameras, but the guy next to me had a good one, huge lens and all!!

    The show was great. Loved Jeff and Kurt. Signs for "Johnny Gaga Weir" and Plushenko.

    Really enjoyed it. My photos turned out crap though

    Thank you!! To tell you the truth, I don't took a picture during the competition or performance. But hope to do that during the ceremony and finale.

    Anyway, enjoy it!!

    to tell the trueth,I think this year's show isn't as good as last year...maybe because it's on Tuesday……

    but,when Shen and Zhao come back at last,Zhao kissed Shen's forehead,then they kneeled on the ice and kiss the ice together,I burst into tears,and can't stop……

    Nan Song skated to Sarabande Suite.Sui/Han skated Flamenco and a new pro Painted On My Heart,omg it's totally different from their former programs,sexy and powerful LOL

    S/Z was the highlight in last night for sure.Plushenko was so powerful too,beautiful jumps!Kurt Browning's really a great showman,he needs to skate forever!Audience loved his shirt with chinese character (oh I forgot to say Jason Mraz also hold a concert last night in beijing! LOL) Johnny's fighter is well accepted,but not that "rocked" compare to his "gaga" programs here. Pity most people don't know Edvin Marton at all,when I felt so excited to see Marton on the ice,some one even don't know why he comes……

    some fans are really enthusiastic,I saw Johnny's,Plushenko's and Buttle's fans club organized very well,they wear the same "member shirt" with special design,carry big poster,banner and beautiful flowers,,each has about 10 to 20 people.

    I loved it so much more than last year's show, which was all about S/Z.
