Jeremy Abbott debuted an exhibition version of his FS to "Bring Him Home" (arranged by Steven Jamail) at the Evening with Champions show last night - a video link is posted here in the EWC show thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...02#post3698602
He plans to debut his SP at today's EWC show.

What kind of swan? Music?
Swanlake by Tchikovsky
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1C_kinmd1g Here's Michal's SP. Spins look somewhat improved. However, it worries me that none of his jumps here are performed as planned (the LP wasn't much better). Not a fan of the costume or the stubble at all either
I hope that Mao's swan will be traditional and not voidy like Arakawa used to do. You never know from these Japanese ladies. This is a great choice for Mao, if she sticks to flowing, traditional style.
I don't think Mao has range to do anything other than traditional.
It seems that Asada and Sotnikova has already 3 programs the same:
Ladies in lavender, Lieberstraume and now apparently the Swan lake
I've been secretly hoping for Mao to skate to Swan Lake since 2006 (her sister Mai had lovely program to SL, but she didn't qualify for Worlds...), so I'm OK with this choice.
Chock/Bates' Dr. Shivago FD is pure magic* A mesmerizing performance from these two. It'll be interesting to see how the USFSA scores the top four teams @ US Nats. Maybe we'll see a team from Zueva, a team from Shpilban, and a team from Camerlengo/krylova go to worlds.
Otoh, what a F***ed up program from Zhiganshina/Gazsi Their coach HATES them. It's the only explanation!
What is their music?
That part when he cracks her neck (am I right to assume he's Jack the Ripper? ) and he thinks he has killed her... err major FAIL
Divertimento in B flat major, K137 (Salzburg Symphony No. 2)II. Allegro di molto
Violin Sonata in F major, K. 376 (374d) II. Andante
Eine kleine Nachtmusik (Serenade No. 13 for strings in G major), K. 525 IV Rondo: Allegro
