I notice that Joubert stole Yagudin's music again, this time for the show in Kazakhstan.

It was a great show last night with many beautiful performances and live music performed by Kazakh artists. The skaters, artists and crew then took a plane to Astana after the show.
Here are some photos from yesterday's show: http://sports.kz/fotogallery/id/4116#foto
It really must have been a great night, Denis Ten tweeted and thanked the audience for 17 minutes of standing ovation
Hopefully there will be more videos soon :-)
from twitter: @ Tenis_Den still under the impression of the show Dennis! Before the eyes of music, lights, lasers, all great! Carolina - The Princess and grace! Delight!
Joubert has been completely charmed by Yagudin. What did the guy do to him?
The show in Astana was also great. I was told there were 9,000 people. The speed skating oval is not the best venue with the spectators being rather far away from the ice but they did have extra tribunes and VIP-tables closer to the ice, too. At the end, a lot of fans came down and I think they almost would have ovrrun the ice if the security hadn't stopped them. Denis Ten and Kazakhstan have been a great host for the show and all skaters really enjoyed it.
Congrats to Denis for a wonderful show and a great cast line-up. I am sure his success will raise the interest of figure skating in Kazakhstan. Maybe, some day, they may have a female version of Ten winning Worlds too. Way to go for the smaller countries.

PRESS RELEASE PHOTO and VIDEO
May 25 at the Ice Palace "Alau" (Astana) took place on Ice show, "Denis Ten and friends." The initiator of the show became the stars of figure skating silver medalist at the World Denis Ten. Go out on the ice world stars: Stephane Lambiel, Brian Joubert, Irina Slutskaya, Carolina Kostner.
Opened the show People's Artist of the USSR and Kazakhstan Alibek Dnishev. Kazakh pop submitted Serkebayeva Jamila, a group of "Ringo", Marjane Arapbaeva, Bauirzhan Isaev, Sundet Baigozhina, Meir Bayneshev. In the leading roles were Nurlan ABDULLIN Sadvakasova and Madina. As co-host were invited Serik Sapiev and Anna Alyabeva.
Directed by show - Ari Zakarian, producer Yevgeny Plushenko and Irina Slutskaya, the organizer of the ice show "Kings on Ice" and "Extreme Ice". Music producer of the project - Kazakh composer Renat Gysin.
Invite figure skating stars at home - a long-standing dream of Dennis. The project concept is simple: Denis Ten invite friends to show the stars Kazakhstan, and Kazakhstan - the stars. Triumphant performance at the World Cup has made this dream a reality. None of the above domestic skaters did not achieve this success. Kazakhstani people deserve to be able to see right now the country's best figure skater in the glow of international stars.
- I myself have repeatedly acted in various shows, and I always wanted to Kazakhstan were able to see the skaters, who previously only seen on TV. And I had a goal: to show my friends the beauty of our country. More than once I told them about how dynamically developing Kazakhstan. Now they can see it for themselves - says Denis Ten.
Audience saw the classic program skaters and rooms designed specifically for the project with the participation of Kazakh pop stars.
- Stephane Lambiel over many years is the main face of the biggest ice show in Europe «Art tonight». Carolina Kostner performs in his own show, "Opera on Ice." This is probably one of the most expensive projects in Italy. Caroline is rarely involved in foreign show, and that she agreed to come to us in Kazakhstan - it is a great honor. Irina Slutskaya does not need it, we all know it. Sergey Yakimenko of Ukraine will demonstrate a very dangerous stunt: jumping skating through the car. For his performance Sergey entered the Guinness World Records. We will also feature world champions in ice acrobatics Bessedin Vladimir and Sergei Polishchuk. They are in demand in many of the world's ice shows - presents his friends Denis.
