    So do I! Her performance of it in San Jose made my eyes tears up. I can believe we're already getting news of new programs. It seems like the season just ended . Pretty soon, it'll be time for summer comps.:D

    As most, I am a renewed fan of Zhang, but I never really saw any "Choreography" in either of her programs...

    As Adele is British, it's "Rumour Has It". :)

    IA, it wasn't a choreographic masterpiece but it was still moving nonetheless (at least to me).

    HeatherC Go Team SW Florida! =)

    Oh I LOVE Lynn & Logan's FD music! That program should be pretty awesome! :cheer:

    I like K-GS, but I really don't want them to go the way of Navarro and Bommentre, who plateaued technically and stylistically by sticking to a similar style of program every season.

    Tweeted by @RichardDornbush today (re. his new SP music):
    I'm skating to an instrumental of "With or Without You", U2, originally.

    Wonder if he's ever going to use that instrumental "Sixteen Tons" number that he scrapped. I've always wanted to see that.

    I hope it's not an "elevator music" quality instrumental...if it is, I'm already falling asleep.

    Oh dear :scream:.

    I am finding it hard to imagine a worse music choice. :wall:

    At least it's the SP...
  14. Braulio

    Braulio Pleasantly pleasing with Peggy


    Kim and Brent always gave me that impression, that at the end of their career they skated even to the same music (though they did not)

    I love Lynn and Logan creative style and lifts, so hoping they can keep it up

    iTunes has three instrumental versions. One with lots of drum beats. One a very dismal piano version (from an album of "romantic piano music"). And one "in the style of U2" but with a synthesizer.

    I can't imagine what I played of any of them making a good skating program. :scream:

    peibeck Simply looking

    NavBomms ODs were always more interesting than their FD's IMO. :shuffle:

    K/G-S are also better technical skaters than NavBomms ever were. Their biggest "weakness" is really having just okay speed. I'm hoping that is the area they really work on during the off-season.

    @SarahandDrew just tweeted that "Nobunari Oda was in Colorado last week getting a new short program [choreographed by Tom Dickson] - it looked gorgeous!"

    ETA: I forgot to mention this tidbit from Sarah/Drew's April 2, 2012 "Ice Chips" blog:

    Wow. I LOVE K/G-S's choice in Free Dance music. I'll really be looking forward to see that one.

    Dornbush's selection is skary sounding.

    I'm also happy that Zhang is keeping the SP. With (even) more speed and a steady 3-3 combo she could find herself on GP podiums this year.

    According to his interview in April, Nobu's new programs will be choreographed by Tom Dickson (SP) and Lori Nichol (FS).

    Dickson is the exciting choice!
    Then, Lori.....umm...:confused:

    I got some new information about Japanese skaters.

    Kanako Murakami will go to USA to make new SP and Ex in May(no information about the choreographer), and FS will be made by Zueva again.

    Mao will make new Ex program with Lori in May, but not decided anything about the competition program so far:(

    I had forgotten about him :scream:

    I guess, with Kozuka's jumping issues this season, the possibility of Oda beating him out for a spot on the world team next season can not be ruled out. But then again, now that both Kozuka and Hanyu have won World medals, it really makes Oda the odd one out.

    I think Oda will be fine- as long as he remembers how many triple toes he can do in one program!

    Oda needs to find his style like SOON!!! I can’t say I know who he is as an artist. As a technician he’s quite defined. I’ve heard interviews where Lori has put the ball back in the court of a skater when they give her the description of what they want to skate like by asking who THEY are. It could be a good thing. I sure hope so because the Seb. Brittain numbers were not super with the exception of last years sp. I liked that.

    Wonder when she will be in Canton. I will def stop by to spy. was there this week and it was pretty exciting. Zueva is in person so NOT the Diva she portrays. Super warm and genuinely appreciative of complements.

    After two years with David Wilson, Brian Joubert is reportedly planning to go back to DenStavs for his new programs - no word on music except it's not going to be The Matrix :D

    Meanwhile, Florent Amodio is asking for music suggestions. Won't someone please think of the children and save us from another season of tackiness? I realize this is probably wishful thinking...
