I saw the show on April
5, 2003 in Philadelphia, PA. This is just a very short review, and
I will post an in depth review/report later this week. Check out
my pictures from the show!
Michelle looked radiant
in the opening. She wore a two piece red sparkly costume. They all
were basically wearing the same costume, different colors, but I
really liked hers. And the place went nuts when she came out. :)
Oh, and when I came home, I saw the beginning of the local sports
show, and they SHOWED Michelle! The show is filmed where the show
takes place, but still, how cool! They showed her in the opening,
and it was for a long time. We were too busy screaming "they're
showing Michelle!" to clearly hear what they said, but it was something
to the fact that people at the First Union center were happy because
Michelle Kwan had just light up the Center. They even showed this
piece during the 10pm broadcast, and I caught it on tape. At least
I'll be able to have something from the show on tape!
Onto Michelle's Fallin'
program. She just lights up the arena. Her costume is this cute
two piece brown number. She wore her hair down, like for FOG. The
program was very different for her, kind of sultry. Lots of moves
with her arms, lunges, etc. And the look on her face at parts of
the program, very cute. The girls in front of me were singing along
to the song at the beginning. Her jumps were spot on, but of course
that's not the reason we are there. It was obvious that she was
only doing this program for the second time, but I still liked it.
I gave her a standing ovation, not for the program, but because
she's Michelle. :) I saw my friend leon standing, but we probably
were the only ones. Oh well, I don't care. ;)
The closing was a bit
odd. It was cute though. At one point Tim is waiting to go on, and
he was dancing along with the music. Then Irina comes over to him,
and when it's his turn, she pushes him out there (that's part of
the choreography I assume, but it was just cute to see.) On that
note, Irina's hair is *red*, wow. Um, and Michelle wore this pants
thing that was green and with crisscroses down one of her legs.
Kind of odd looking, but all of the costumes were. At the end, instead
of the fireworks of last year, streamers come down from the ceiling.
Would be fine other than one of them got in front of my camera just
as I was taking a picture of Michelle. ;)
I wasn't really planning
to, but after the show, we waited near the buses to see the skaters
come out. We saw Scott Williams, and someone yelled to him. I said
yelled out "congratulations" to him. It was cute, at one
point, Michael and his daughter came out. These people were waving
to Michael, and his daughter waved back. :) We saw Evgeni, Elena
(I cheered loud for her, since not many there seemed to know who
she was *sigh*), P&S, Naomi, Nicole, Dan (who came out with Michael),
and probably someone I'm forgetting. Then, Irina and Michelle came
out together. Michelle waved, and someone asked for a picture. She
turned back around and waved again, then got on the bus. Most of
the pictures I got were of her back, LOL, but I got one good one.
A good, fun show. Too
bad it's not being taped.And someone needs to go through all the
programs and cross out four-time World champ, and write five-time
World champ above it.
