    So do I! Her performance of it in San Jose made my eyes tears up. I can believe we're already getting news of new programs. It seems like the season just ended . Pretty soon, it'll be time for summer comps.

    As most, I am a renewed fan of Zhang, but I never really saw any "Choreography" in either of her programs...

    As Adele is British, it's "Rumour Has It".

    IA, it wasn't a choreographic masterpiece but it was still moving nonetheless (at least to me).

    Oh I LOVE Lynn & Logan's FD music! That program should be pretty awesome!

    I like K-GS, but I really don't want them to go the way of Navarro and Bommentre, who plateaued technically and stylistically by sticking to a similar style of program every season.

    I'm skating to an instrumental of "With or Without You", U2, originally.

    Wonder if he's ever going to use that instrumental "Sixteen Tons" number that he scrapped. I've always wanted to see that.

    I hope it's not an "elevator music" quality instrumental...if it is, I'm already falling asleep.

    Oh dear .

    I am finding it hard to imagine a worse music choice.

    ITA

    Kim and Brent always gave me that impression, that at the end of their career they skated even to the same music (though they did not)

    I love Lynn and Logan creative style and lifts, so hoping they can keep it up

    iTunes has three instrumental versions. One with lots of drum beats. One a very dismal piano version (from an album of "romantic piano music"). And one "in the style of U2" but with a synthesizer.

    I can't imagine what I played of any of them making a good skating program.

    NavBomms ODs were always more interesting than their FD's IMO.

    K/G-S are also better technical skaters than NavBomms ever were. Their biggest "weakness" is really having just okay speed. I'm hoping that is the area they really work on during the off-season.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    @SarahandDrew just tweeted that "Nobunari Oda was in Colorado last week getting a new short program [choreographed by Tom Dickson] - it looked gorgeous!"

    ETA: I forgot to mention this tidbit from Sarah/Drew's April 2, 2012 "Ice Chips" blog:
    Lysacek premiered an exciting program at the Saturday afternoon show: a new free skate, to music from Samson and Delilah.

    Wow. I LOVE K/G-S's choice in Free Dance music. I'll really be looking forward to see that one.

    Dornbush's selection is skary sounding.

    I'm also happy that Zhang is keeping the SP. With (even) more speed and a steady 3-3 combo she could find herself on GP podiums this year.

    According to his interview in April, Nobu's new programs will be choreographed by Tom Dickson (SP) and Lori Nichol (FS).

    Dickson is the exciting choice!
    Then, Lori.....umm...

    I got some new information about Japanese skaters.

    Kanako Murakami will go to USA to make new SP and Ex in May(no information about the choreographer), and FS will be made by Zueva again.

    Mao will make new Ex program with Lori in May, but not decided anything about the competition program so far

    I had forgotten about him

    I guess, with Kozuka's jumping issues this season, the possibility of Oda beating him out for a spot on the world team next season can not be ruled out. But then again, now that both Kozuka and Hanyu have won World medals, it really makes Oda the odd one out.
