WOW !!!! What a show !!!
I wont do a complete review of the show right now but I will write
you what I remember the most.
The Opening number was to classical music and, may I say, well
choregraphed. Brian Orser did a Backflip and Kurt his incredible
footworks (And it's an understatement !!)
The next number was Kurt, Brian and Elvis did a number together
that remind me of the Tango number from 2002 CSOI. Very good number
and I didn't know where to look !!!
Kurt skated to Moondance and Ding Dong Daddy. He fell in Moondance
on footworks and , you know Kurt, starts to clowning after it, too
funny ! He blows me away everytime I see him, and it was the Fifth
time live !!!
Shae Lynn skated to a female singer, which I don't know the name
but it was great and the fact that there were no jumps didn't
matter. And her costume was gorgeous !
Lefebvre/Markov did their OD and FD and their are so good, I think
they will be kicking **** on the international scene in the next years
!!! Lot a speed and great lifts !!
Brian Orser Skate to Where do you start & Beyond the sea. Like
always, he skate like if he was skating on a cloud or something,
sooooooo smooth !! And you can't keep your eyes off of him ! and I
can't believe the guy is 42 years old !!!
Josee skated to Avec le temps et Mein herr. And to my surprise, I
liked both of her programs !!! I'm not a big fan of hers but she was
great. She fell on a jump but it didn't matter because overall she was
very good !! She even sat 3-4 seats next to us in Mein Herr !!!
Joannie skated to Paint in Black and Love and she was great. She
has so much speed that I always have trouble photographing her !!! I
hope I manage to have one or two good pictures of her !!!
Elvis skated to two number which I dont know the title but the
first was typical Elvis exhibition number where he is sliding on the
ice and the second was very interesting. He come out with a black
overcoat on his shoulders and before the begining of the number, he
take off his coat and he have fake arm extension !!! It was so funny
!!! I never thought I woul love him but I did !!! I'm a fan of Elvis
Brasseur/Eisler skated to A friend to me and The middle. They are
so gooood ! I will miss them. They had a S.O. for the middle and a Big
one at the end. I think everone will miss them. I think this show must
have been hard for them since it was Isabelle Hometown (And The
Isabelle Brasseur Coloseum !!)
Myriane Samson skated to I feel good but I dont remember a lot as
for Samuel Tetrault (He is so cute !!).
We had a Synchro team that skated to Winter and little kids too
Now the best for last !! Kurt skated a cowboy number to Canadian
man with shae and Josee. It was a very good number !! (with one of the
table from 2002 SOI on the ice, yes, FURNITURE !!) I don't remember
the details but I know that I liked it !!
At the end I shook hands with Elvis (when will I have Kurt in my
section ??? lol)
It was one of the best show I've seen in a long time and I can't
believe they won't show it on TV...What a waste !!!
