    I was going to try and pick a particular moment, but honestly, every second of this OD made me say WTF.

    I always love about 98% of Kristi Yamaguchi's performances The rest of the 2% is such a huge WTF moment for me that it ruins the rest of the performance. Her arm movements in this bother me most of the way through.

    I do love her Bridge Over Troubled Waters. I think that was the first one I truly enjoyed all the way through.

    I took your advice and it was worth it. My eyes are watering from laughter.

    One more...no "Four Seasons" program will ever hold a candle to this performance without Surya Bonaly's mind-blowing choreography in this section:

    [QUOTE=Aussie Willy;3616388]And A&P doing Beethoven (or Beethowen according to the name of the clip). I don't care if she is lifting him, this lift sucks.


    Yes this lift was poor for them but I really liked the FD even though it was the year they lost to FP/MM

    What else? You wouldn't expect her to hold an edge did you?

    There aren't enought "WTF"s in the world to describe what i'm thinking when I watch this dance.

    I still can't believe this dance was performed in Vancouver where there was so much effort made by organizers to have positive representations of aboriginal art and civilization, only to have australian aboriginal dance spoofed by Linichuck.

    But, but, but...it's a glorified basic skills compulsory program. It has 2 t-stops and scooter pushes!

    I was recently watching the ISU DVD on skating skills program components and she is shown as an example of bad skating skills.

    Even with music it made me kind of wonder what in the world they were doing. The entire program has some... interesting movements. Though there are some cool looking ones, too.
    The hair style in itself is worth a WTF moment though (I know it was fashion back then but still...)

    I love love love that B&B program.

    It's everything I love about them encapsulated in one program.

    I also always loved how freaked out, sometimes to the point of hostility, their pro programs made some the American and Canadian commentators.

    She was trying to do robo-swan, way before Morozov came up with the concept. The jazz hands only add to her heartfelt interpretation, really .

    ETA How come this didn't make an appearance yet? The flapper seizures go a long way to explain "Let my people go"
