    Jenny Kirk - Puttin' on the Ritz

    Mao Asada's SP in 2013

    Stephanie Rosenthal's SP & LP at the 2006 US nationals

    I will think of more later, but these came to my mind immediately. I am sure there are men who had fun programs skated to modern music too.

    How do you define "modern"?

    Hummm, I guess something within the last 50 years. But more so music that would be unexpected in skating....like Hot Butter's Popcorn to today's Icona's I love it.

    I thought this was fun.

    I'll try to think of some more.

    It was original, parts of it were very fun, and it meant someone skating to Smack My Bitch Up (among other things) at the Olympics: I vote for Adrian Schultheiss and his 2009-10 free skate.

    Also I think that when Joubert skated Rise well, it had great energy and was pretty fun. Clearly agreed, which is the main reason I am linking this performance and not the better version from 2010 Worlds (in which he had a somewhat less awful costume and toned down hip thrusts).

    I like programs to modern/contemporary music and think of them as memorable when the skaters develop their own language of movements and don`t just do a "regular style" to modern music, thus just pretending to do something out of the ordinary.

    Thought of Eman in 2005/2006:

    Was it a pro competition? - It had to be; Kristi turned pro in 1992. In that case it would be called either Technical or Artistic program (there were no SP & LP in the pros- AFAIK).

    It was a technical program. However, I believe it was set up just like a SP. I remember it even had a spiral sequence. She may have used it in a Pro/Am. You can find it on You Tube. Sorry, I don't know how to copy it--maybe someone else can.

    It was a pro-am, which used a regulation short program and then an artistic program.

    Yagudin's Racing program to Safri Duo music, though he only skated it in ISU competition once, at Skate America in 2002 when his hip was really starting to give him trouble. He skated it later in the Hallmark and Sears Open competitions. Fun concept and great choreography to carry it off. It's my favorite of all his short programs.
