    2013 Artistry on Ice shows in Taiwan (June 8) & China (June 10, 14 & 16)

    Official site: http://artistryonice.streetvoice.com/in_index.html
    June 8 - Taipei, Taiwan
    June 10 - Guangzhou, China
    June 14 - Shanghai, China
    June 16 - Beijing, China

    I'm not sure if everyone pictured currently on the site will be performing in all 4 shows: Shen/Zhao, Evgeni Plushenko, Shizuka Arakawa, Johnny Weir (all 4 shows are listed on his official site), Kurt Browning (AOI is listed on the KurtFiles site), Joannie Rochette, Jeff Buttle, etc. I also see photos of Alissa Czisny and Irina Slutskaya lower down. Patrick Chan currently is listed for 4 AOI shows on Skate Canada's National Team Athlete Appearances page but is not pictured.

    He is not mentioned in the news, so I have no idea whether he'll be skating there.

    But, Lambiel is such a wonderful surprise to me

    Great to see Irina Slutskaya participating. She has really been enjoying a lot of success as a professional, especially with the huge boom of popularity of skating in Asia right now.

    Another article in English: http://english.cri.cn/8046/2013/04/21/195s760785.htm
    Yang Dong, Director of the Figure Skating Department at the Chinese Winter Sport Federation, says the "Artistry on Ice" show will promote the popularity of figure skating among ordinary Chinese citizens.

    "The 'Artistry on Ice' show is a good promotional tool which will enable more and more people to learn about and begin to appreciate this graceful sport. I believe it will have important influence on developing the country's figure skating industry."

    She's a self proclaimed fashionista with an annoying baby voice, and she has her own C-list fashion TV show but thinks she's an A list fashionista on the top of her game.

    I know it's unhealthy for me to have cyber hatred towards someone that I don't know in real life but I just really don't like 'try-hards'.
