Yes, per the rules the song itself just needs to have been used in a musical, it doesn't have to be from a cast album -- which, for jukebox musicals, means you can basically just use the artist's original versions. Also why I'm sure Hawayek/Baker's Saturday Night Fever RD will be using the movie soundtrack, even though it's only because they made the movie into a stage show that it should even count for the RD.Also, I'm assuming it's acceptable that the December 1963 section isn't the version from the musical/movie? (i'm pretty sure it's the original).
Nope, no word on what they're doing this year in either program.Do we know Piper/Paul's RD music?
They got really good levels for first senior competition. PCS were not bad as well. Their twizzles in the FD were scored the highest of the competition. 9.38.. I think it is a great debut. Hopefully they get sent to a B competition.
I'm glad they are expanding the number of CS options. I think it is good for teams to get out there and get feedback away from home when they still have time to adapt/polish their material before the GP.Interestingly, F-B/S and L/L are Canada’s first ever entries at Lombardia Trophy.
Interesting that they're going head-to-head so quickly. I'm dying to see their new programs. Both had just stunners last year, and need to stay aggressive now.Interestingly, F-B/S and L/L are Canada’s first ever entries at Lombardia Trophy.
Laurence and Nikolaj are, I think, pretty incontestably in second nationally right now. The matchup that the teams are so far avoiding is L/L vs. Soucisse/Firus. Since the former didn't go to Championnats, that's in all likelihood not happening at all until Nationals.Interesting that they're going head-to-head so quickly. I'm dying to see their new programs.

With Haley and Nikolas, I'm not sure if they're likely to move up much beyond their current rank, but they've got a pretty nice niche for the moment that will probably keep them on the national team for at least another season or two. They've got the opportunity to live the dream and compete internationally multiple times a season.I actually went and watched Sales & Wamsteeker's FD at nationals, because I just couldn't remember anything about them other than seeming awkward or somehow... not at the level as the other top-five cdn teams. He needs a haircut, asap, and they get no help from their program itself, but I think there's serious potential there. Even though they didn't seem to have command of the ice, they seemed to have power. I didn't see it live, I could be wrong. If only they could move east...
I was really charmed by that program.I really enjoyed Sales & Wamsteeker's Robin & Marian FD from two years ago.
I was impressed with Aissa in the FD. I don't know if it was anger at himself for the twizzle error but that was definitely the best I've seen him skate.- Rough near-miss for Emmy and Aissa, in what was effectively a jump-ball result. I had been hoping after Aissa's two really good summer competitions that his twizzle issues were behind him, but they were back here with a vengeance, in the RD anyway. He was clearly on a mission in the FD, he got really good levels there and it was actually Emmy who was the problem, which is rare. But the FD, in general, has come together really well, after looking a bit unfinished in its first competition a few weeks ago.
