    Hey, it could have been, "Ghost: The Musical".

    I'll take JCS.

By the way, I admit that I haven't heard newer versions of the 'Jesus Christ Superstar' musical, so I don't know how it sounds now, I only know what it was originally.
    Go nuts

    Wait - because I dismiss JCS as electro-pop instead of rock, I only listen to classical music? think that is a viable leap to make and dismiss me entirely for it? Brava indeed. Wonderfully stereotyped reaction. That stated, thank you for assuming I "really know" classical music. I'll consider that a compliment.

    FWIW, I like exactly two Lloyd Webber musicals: Evita and Sunset Blvd. If they're going to skate to Lloyd Webber, I'd rather it be one of those two. If they skate to a rock opera, I'd love it if they took on something by The Who. If they're going to skate to electro-pop, I'd rather they took on the Scissor Sisters.

    I didn't accuse any others. As for Proustable, even if he/she indeed likes only classical music, I see nothing wrong with that. And I already said that the reason for my eye rolling wasn't his/her dislike of 'Jesus Christ Superstar'. My problem was Proustable's open ignorance about the genre of the music that he/she dislikes. I never roll my eyes at people for not liking something that I like, but I do at displays of ignorance. If I don't know something I say so, or I just don't talk about it at all.

    Okay, I admit that it was wrong to assume that you like only classical music. I apologize for that. As for "really knowing", by that I meant - having real knowledge about some genre of music is not the same as just having listened to it.

    Thanks for the link. I'll try to listen to it. Probably I will be disappointed, as I believe that it's not quite the same as it was before, but I promise that I won't "go nuts" because of that.

    Did you base your conclusion that Proustable only likes classical music on, well, anything? Because it is possible to like various types of music and still dislike ALW's work.
    Aren't you a bit judgemental here? If not, you are too easy to be impressed.

    Do we have an answer?
    Trankov says in the interview that he and his partner will skate their LP to "overused music". If Jesus Christ Superstar is overused material in figure skating, then yeah, it could be JCS.

    Yes, he is using the word "заезженный", which means "overused" or "cliched", but maybe he just meant that the music is very famous and well-known. I guess we'll see soon?
    To tell the truth, I'm quite curious to see the result if it's indeed JCS.

    Mr. Trankov would make a perfect Catholic martyr in one of those old paintings where said martyr is being slowly disemboweled on a spiked wheel while praying to God, eyes upturned towards the heavens in fevered ecstasy. Those eyes, that anguish. Um, yeah.
    I can soooo picture this, damn. Now I kind of want this to be true.

    Photos from the open practice:

    They intrigue a lot about their short program, say that they will need to explain what they mean by it and who exactly they portray.

    Yes...maybe you know better...
