Some of the most fabulous songs from the Tina Turner songbook haven't really been touched at all by the skating world.

We've had a healthy dose of West Side Story, Queen medleys, Andrea Bocelli and all that fun stuff... but amazing songs like "I Don't Wanna Fight", "When The Heartache Is Over" and Tina's fabulous rendition of "Missing You" have sadly been overlooked.

Here's a FAR from comprehensive list of performances using/inspired by Tina's music.

Not a skating program, but for Dancing With The Stars Kristi Yamaguchi and Mark Ballas danced a jive to Nutbush City Limits...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85wZWPliQvM (Better quality video - this is all of Kristi & Mark's dances together - so Nutbush City Limits comes on at the 17:30 mark)

Junior dance team Kristina Bland and Matthew Sperry's RD two seasons ago was to Proud Mary but I don't think there's a video online. Here's a pic from ice-dance.com
