I love what I saw from Duhamel/ Radford in the brief clip from this show, but is it an exhibition piece or their new sp? It's quite wonderful!
Well there are other costume inspirations out there. I previously posted the below suggests in the JB thread in Skip (as originally cited by Mrs. P elsewhere):
http://precisemuzic.files.wordpress....ittleshort.jpg (Columbus Short, the actor who portrayed Little Walter [composer of Juke] in the film, Cadillac Records) Egads, tho' still wearing the dreaded suspenders, but the pencil stripe shirt pattern is cool and different.

And look at these menswear ideas from the 1940s era:

And btw, nobody does the suspenders shtick better than Robin Cousins did!!!

So Jeremy Abbott skated this program at THE ICE recently to Barber's Adagio.
Stunning program (what else is new from Abbott), but could this be his new free skate? The length is about 4.5 minutes and all the marked jumping passes seem to fit...? I'm being tentative because I'm a noob when it comes to show skating, but alot of elements fit a free program model to me...
I think you've nailed it. It's structured like a free skate, begins with a 3T (to be a 4T later) and has two Axel passes right after the mid-point.
I remember Jeremy saying that he was going to get a program that he could use as an exhibition or as a competitive program should he decide to compete.
The commentator was Yuka Sato.
There are more details about what she said in "THE ICE" thread.
Jeremy is apparently seriously considering competing this season.
Three other Grand Prix competitors were in Philadelphia - 2 article excerpts:
Veronik Mallet (CAN) is keeping her "Funny Girl" medley FS:
Ashley Cain did not compete but received feedback on her programs from officials on Saturday:"[David Wilson] re-did the whole thing two weeks ago," [coach Annie] Barabé said. "She was nervous to do it here, so we kept the jumps more simple. Before, she was mostly worried about the jumps; now, she feels the music more."
Mallet didn't use any of Barbra Streisand's vocals, but that may change.
"I didn't think I would like [vocals] so much, but I do," Barabé said. "I would like to add some to [Mallet's] free, maybe not the whole program. I messaged David about it, and he thinks it might be hard to do, because it's a medley. We will see."
Mallet fell on a triple flip in her new short to music from the ballet Les Sylphides, also choreographed by Wilson.
Alexei Bychenko (ISR) debuted a new SP that includes (in second half) the famous drinking song ("Libiamo, ne' lieti calici") from Act I of Verdi's La Traviata.In her short, set to the Mission: Impossible soundtrack, she sports a black unitard and plays up her sultry side.
"It's a little bit sexy but also sneaky, like I have a secret and I'm keeping it to myself," she said. "I'm playing with the audience and judges."
She and [choreographer Scott] Brown are still putting finishing touches on her free skate to the Evita soundtrack, using vocals by Madonna.
"This is the 10th version of it, because we wanted the perfect cut with vocals," she said. "I start with the death announcement of Eva Perón and kind of go into this very intense beginning, with the church choir singing."

Do we know anything about the programs of Anna and Luca?
My idea of Heaven: Matt, Rohene and now Jereamazin' skating to Barber's Adagio... Yum!
Sorry, double post.
Sorry, I found the male commentator also said that Jeremy will continue competing in the beginning of the video. Anyway I think Yuka's comments are more reliable as long as it is about Jeremy.
