Aaaaand this is the 3rd thread I'm posting in :D ... Looks like we'll see Jason Brown's new programs for the ISP Points Challenge virtual competition posted tomorrow in USFS' Fan Zone. He just shared snippets on his social media:

SP: https://www.instagram.com/p/CFaejc3nrI7/
🎶: Sinnerman
🎤: Nina Simone
Choreo: Rohene Ward

FS: https://www.instagram.com/p/CFae2hJH7kL/
🎶: Slaughter on 10th Avenue
🎼: Richard Rodgers & New York Philharmonic
Choreo: David Wilson

Oh my....SLAUGHTER! I love that music. It’s known (eg, Wilson/McCall FD eons ago) but not warhorse-level known.

Somehow ISP Points Challenge videos are already uploaded at YouTube.

ETD: It was naive of me to have thought the copyright holders would allow leaked videos. I replaced the links with the real ones:

SP Asturias + Canción del Mariachi
Starting at 25:57

FS Philip Glass Selections: Metamorphosis II, Violin Concerto I, Truman Sleeps
Starting at 37:40

OMG!!! BOTH ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!!! Imagine, at the next Worlds, a final flight of Men skating to this, plus Slaughter plus Nureyev plus whatever Yuzu’s skating to?

Has anyone noticed how, in this era of *****, the musical selections are improving? More time to sit at home and think things out clearly? In Russia & now US? My only problem is with the unfortunate Billie Eilish crappola from one of the Russian gals last week...

It did reach semi warhorse status in the 80s/early 90s. Here are 4 examples.

And


Also this 1983 show program by Torvill and Dean, which I don't think I've ever seen or heard of before. But it's 10 minutes long so I don't have time to watch the whole thing now.

Sinitsina/Katsalapov
RD: Singing in the rain (repeating from last season)
FD: Smile, Come Togther by Michael Jackson

We only saw about a minute of their FD since they had to stop mid-skate because of Sinitsina's knee injury.

Well, since the other two pieces aren't from R&J, I assume she won't be playing Juliet, just using nice music. So quite different. But it's still funny it's true.
How many seasons in a row could a skater do R&J without repeating a composer/artist?

Jun-hwan CHA

SP: Dark Pastoral for Cello and Orchestra by Vaughan Williams (still choreographing remotely.)
FS: The Fire Within (reusing 2019-20 season FS)

from SBS Sports Live Interview

Jun-hwan mentioned that he had selected a new music for FS, but had to give up the idea when US got locked down.

Following the cancellation of the Internationaux de France Grand Prix, Rika Kihira has shared a 1-minute clip of her SP footwork to "The Fire Within" by Jennifer Thomas: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CGj_IJ5nJAq/

Her ISU bio has been updated: http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00054891.htm
FS: Baby, God Bless You by Shinya Kiyozuka
Choreographer (both programs): Benoit Richaud

ISU bio is not correct, FS was choreographed by Lambiel.
Here is a step sequence from it:
