Rooting for underdogs!
Since Sofia Akatieva won't be ISU Junior age eligible until the 2021-22 season, maybe we should just wait and see how this promising skater develops in the next couple of years.
I recall Rippon crediting "DJ ShyBoy" for remixing Bell's SP music (in Mariah's SP choreography video that he posted on his YT channel back in the summer). Thanks for posting a translation/summary of her interview.[Bell's Russian interview] translation (in a nutshell):
- Adam, who is now her coach and choreographer, suggested "Radar" and "Work B..". Bell was not sure it is her style, and the "b-word" concerned her, as far as judges' reaction. But she trusted Adam, he mixed the music in a way that it is unique, and now she thinks it is cool, and glad she trusted him.
