    I realize this is ancient history, but didn't Dorothy Hamill do a long program to "Firebird"? I believe that was the first time I ever heard the music, and fell in love with it.

    Her 1974 Worlds FS ended with it.

    Jill Watson and Peter Oppegard skated an exhibition to it at the 1988 Olympics.

    I voted for Rochette, Lysacek, and Nakano. I'd never seen the Orser one before though and I'll have to give it an honourable mention since it was so exuberant. Btw, I would probably say the worst is Miki Ando's.. very boring.

    Joannie's by far. And it's my favourite program of hers. I wish she had stayed with Sebastien Britten longer.

    To be completely honest

    RACHAEL FLATT!

    US Nationals - http://youtu.be/OR2cXbneV-k
    She doubled one jump but apart from that she skated it really well, I think she was 4th in the FS and 6th overall with it

    This is just a horrible skate and outfit, but I love it because of how bad it was!

    OMG, how could I forget this performance. She really was very good, and I was so pleased for her (and loved seeing her so happy in the K&C).

    Machida's Firebird was an amazing piece of choreography - did Lambiel choreograph it? I dont think he ever skated it clean, which was a shame. But as a program I thought it was stunning and captured the Firebird character better than any lady did. I hope he keeps it for next year.
