ITA with haribobo. Why is it overused garbage or new garbage? There's so much non-garbage!
I feel about it the way I felt about Tabitha Yim's Blues for Klook floor routine. Not my cup of tea, but there are parts I like and really love the effort to break out of the ordinary, safe kind of program.
I would have cut the music differently so that Christina's wailing sounded less ... scatalogical, but it doesn't bother me as much as it seems to bother others. Bluesy - jazz is a sorely underutilized genre in skating, generally, especially for ladies.

I couldn't care less about the music. I just want her to get her confidence back and skate like I know she can.
Oof, Puccini and Gershwin can't catch a break in FSU.
I agree with you rfisher. I loved her performances in Japan over the summer. She skated with such a spirit and joy.
IMHO Kerrigan's "Paradise and the Master" give this one a run for its money.
I & K's FD is my nominee for worst program track (I hesitate to call it music).
I like Christina Aguilera, but not for this.... It also seems too sophisticated for a teenager to be skating to - even if it's in a sheer-look top that leaves little to the imagination. That said, my vote for worst music this season goes to Trankov & Volosozhar's shrill saxophone piece. Ouch, my ears!
A piece of safe, overused music can bore me to sleep yes (Zhang's Turandotzzz), but it really doesn't frustrate me enough to want to mute the computer like when I watched this Sotnikova program.
Point is, it's good to try something new, but this is obviously a failed attempt.
For some reason the Russian girls, Sotnikova, Lipnitskaia and Tuktamysheva and their programs, remind me less of free skating exhibitions in their construction and more like gymnastics floor routines. They seem to tumble from trick to trick at either end of the rink grabbing their legs to their heads, with not a great deal of connection to the music.
god i loved the end of her fs that year.
"If I agree well it's just to appease you 'cause I don't remember what were fighting for..." - Sarah McLachlan
I feel like Sotnikova's FS music wouldn't bother me as much if she was skating better than she has been thus far this season....
Ohhhh I forgot about that one because I was so busy hating the ghost soundtrack piece. Seriously...
