Just FYI, vocal music has been allowed at the Intermediate level and below for 3 years in the U.S., and in my experience still isn't commonly used except at the very beginning levels, where I think it lets some young skaters have more fun. Out of dozens and dozens of programs I've seen at the Juvenile and Intermediate levels since then I can think of about 5 that used vocal music, and they generally used it very effectively. I've never seen a skater above the very beginning levels try to act out the lyrics (and at the very beginning levels it can be cute ). I would've been opposed to allowing vocal music before the rule was passed at Governing Council but it hasn't caused the demise of skating as I know it yet. I highly doubt any elite skaters that most on this board would watch will skate to Justin Bieber. Maybe some pre-preliminary or preliminary skaters.
