I'm discouraged by their selection. If both Christina/Anthony and Chock/Bates keep their respective rhythm dances they'll both be skating to Too Darn Hot. Then Christina/Anthony will skate to Doctor Zhivago, which was previously used by Chock/Bates. Christina/Anthony are practically asking for the comparison.

Sooner or later the fog will clear, Chock/Bates and Papadakis/Cizeron and Hubbell/Donahue will retire and they will fly to Montreal, period.

Igor has really fallen unto lean times without Marina. It's not for nothing that Zhighansin hated working with him.

I don’t think they can go to Montreal. Carreira needs to reside in the US to eventually get citizenship.

Papadakis / Cizeron

RD: The Artist
FD: contemporary tango on the theme of jealousy

Source: https://www.lequipe.fr/Patinage-art...guillaume-cizeron-lancent-leur-saison/1170270 (behind a paywall, relevant excerpt here)

According to this Haguenauer interview they also have a modified version of Fame at hand.

Thanks to @Laney and @jujubi64 for the information!

Ooo, a tango! I’m here for this, their tango RD was so good!

I bet there will still be people who find a way to say they do the same thing every year, still.

Did the "it has to be a musical" requirement carry over to this season? Or only the Finnstep requirement?

It’s the exact same as last year.

Regarding the Artist, I honestly don’t know enough about it or what’s ISU has described as a musical but there were definitely teams who got away with it last year so I don’t imagine anyone will do anything about it.

I thought about the music requirement violation too but just found out that last season Italian junior couple Portesi Peroni / Chrastecky used the soundtrack from The Artist and didn't receive any music related warning in both their JGPs and Junior Worlds so...

Finally a different FD - I'm really looking forward to this. Maybe losing Europeans is what they needed to see where they needed to push out of their comfort zone?

That the book was adapted into a musical doesn't make the 2013 film a musical by association.

Sure but maybe there a music piece in both the musical and film that was the same and they got it through, a loophole perhaps. I don't remember the program at all. But can imagine a coach arguing it was legal.


The choices by Gabby and Guillame for this season are just genius!!

I'm not sure I would call it genius. I also think that's fine as I wouldn´t waste genius on a year like this one, save it for 2022.

You can see the authors of the musical in the video. They aren't the songwriters of Luhrmann film.

You have a point. I wouldn't call this year a season really. More like the world is in a holding pattern of some kind. But it's nice to see them enthusiastic about their dances. Really looking forward to the Artist RD.

What was the intended FS music? I already forgot.
And back to old SP? I missed that too.
