Ekaterina Gordeava skated to "Prayer", and it was very nice. She was the one I was hoping would skate to it, out of all the skaters in the program. It was nice to think that this might attract more Hayley fans. CW didn't perform for the entire show; people skated to a lot of different other things. They performed "Somewhere over the Rainbow", "The Sky and the Dawn and the Sun", "The Last Rose of Summer" (w/ Lynn and Chloe), "Shenandoah" (the drummer was there! ), "Isle of Inisfree", "The Blessing", "You Raise Me Up", and "One World".
It was a little bit hard for me to fully enjoy the songs that I'm used to Hayley singing with them, but I still liked it. Chloe sang "The Last Rose of Summer" very nicely, but their last high note together on "to inhabit" wasn't exactly flawless. Lynn was nice, but she didn't stand out to me that much. Some of the time it was hard to tell who was singing, when the camera was on the skaters.
Hi all, I love it how Katia explains the song at the beginning. Prayer is without doubt my favorite song by Hayley, and i always listen to it in hard/difficult times. (like exams...) I'm annoyed how they got the song wrong - the caption said THE Prayer, which is a completely different song. Oh well, no ones perfect, i guess. It is certainly a unique song to skate to, and i think Katia was fabulous! She is VERY elegant, and considering how difficult it is to twist and slide at the same time, i'm giving her 10/10!
