    You’re welcome, vivika

    Your link of Alexei’s “Memorial” is from the farewell ceremony at Skate Canada 2003.
    Canada loves him and he loves Canada, so Skate Canada made the fantastic film of his brilliant skating history and the unforgettable ceremony leaving from the eligible. So his performance was really emotional and expressed everything from all of his soul.

    Back to Ice Age.
    I agree with you, vivika. Alexei and Irina are doing great job as hosts, but I am missing their skating. Averbukh answered it in an interview that he would make opportunities for their fans to show solo programs by them. Hope it will become true.

    It really was a tearful ending of his competitive career

    Yes and few more good pairs but those are the rules of the show and with them or without them "Show must go on!!" .The closer it gets towards the end the more dramatic it gets.
    Episode13 continued the theme of the previous Episode and the pairs and their coaches and choreographers again tried to be innovative and original.Some succeeded,some didn't.Others were prevented to compete because they couldn't fly back in time or had serious and mysterious reasons which put them automatically in nominations. And speaking of nominations,this time Petrova/Zapashnyi were voted out but they flew away on their angel's wings with fineness,dignity and little sadness. Overall the episode was good and it was nice to see those great programs and their talented interpretations. I personally liked the programs with the props -Denkova/Kislev's shorter piece of cloth ,Zymina/Tchernishev's killer coat,Medvedeva/Vanagas's hat tricks, Gryu/Marinin waltzing glasses and equally enjoyed Oksana's slaps and Roman's claps. You choose yours

    Just stopping by quickly to post the links for Episode 14 and will try to post the music list ASAP:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=032UbJ9Bu00
    http://www.1tv.ru/sprojects_edition/si5930/fi27494

    Everybody dances and sings in this emotional and cheerful episode It began with sadness when the audience said Good bye to Tania Totmianina and Oskar Kuchera, then Tchernishev and Zimina made us smile with their The two stooges/Kadril audition, Staviskii and Spitza tried to teach us the steps of minuet but it was diamond in the rough and was misunderstood by the judges, Tikhonov/Tsoy skated gently their Japanese version, Marinin/Gryu took their images from 19 century Christmas post card and showed a nice Russian version, Vanagas/Medvedeva mixed Highlander dressing code with Irish dance , Domnina/Yaglych skilfully combined good drink with funny skating, Mikhalkov,s excitement of Navka's gypsy dance broke the strings of his guitar, at the end Albena Denkova received congratulations for her birthday and with her celebrity partner Peter Kislov brought nostalgia and tears with their Yiddish/Bulgarian/Russian lullaby.

    Thank you Vivika.
    The episode was lovely. Julia Zemina has reallly impressed me. Her evolution as a skater has been great. She and Peter are a wonderful couple. Their number was a delight to watch. Tsoy and Tikhonov were amazing as well.
    I was very surprised to see the scores for Spitza and Staviski.

    Sidenote 1: It was good to see Egor Orshulyak nearby the teams.
    Sidenote 2: Peter Tchernyshev is so creative and I wonder why the russian competitive teams don't ask for his help more often.

    "Tikhonov/Tsoy skated gently their Japanese version"

    Well, not Japanese- it was the music from the Chinese movie "The Flying daggers house"

    Sorry for the confusion and thank you for the help .I still don't have time for the music list and what i wrote was just a personal statement .Love the soundtrack and Shigeru Umebayashi,s work but my preferences are too girly and goofy to watch combat movies of any kind. The loss is mine

    Speaking of preferences : i am glad that Max choose the music and the style of one of my most favorite A&M original dances :

    But obviously it will be quite different from the previous 'Cup of Professionals'. It's clear that the foreign guests won't have programs choreographed by Averbukh or Zhulin's team, or probably even programs made especially for this show, at least in Lambiel's case. I know that he didn't have time to prepare four new programs - even one is doubtful, although not impossible. So he will be skating his usual show programs from this last year. But the Russian skaters wouldn't have had time to prepare four new programs for 'Cup of Professionals' either, as they had to prepare programs for the current 'Ice Age' show. Besides, in my opinion, it would be a bit unfair if Russian skaters would skate all new programs especially made for this format of a show, while foreign guests would skate their usual programs.
