I've just watched Medvedeva and Zagitova during test skates. What a mess.


Alina Zagitova - two falls, one step-out, one spoiled combo with pop on the loop. Horrible skating. That was really bad!

Evgenia Medvedeva - one fall, one step-out, several jumps are URed.
/facepalm

They still have some time before more or less important competitions. I hope both will work hard and show their best when it matters.

You must be joking. «Faded» was no one in most countries in the world for months. Your country mates — Alexandra White (she is in our Convention group) — told me that Russians love Alan Walker as well and play his stuff on all radio stations in Russia. He is just a composer, a Brit that moved to Norway — lives in between Norway and England. The girls singing in the track are Norwegians.


"Faded" is a song by English/ Norwegian record producer and DJ Alan Walker. Incorporating vocals provided by Norwegian recording artist Iselin Solheim, the single was originally set to be released on 25 November 2015, but was delayed to 3 December 2015. The song was highly successful, peaking in the top 10 in most of the countries it charted in, and reached the top spot in more than 10 countries. It is currently the 28th most viewed video on YouTube, with over 1.9 billion views as of September 2018.

Thanks. I really never heard of it before. But I'll probably look for some other songs by him.

P. S. Tina S — is a French guitarist by the way, a great one, plays heavy metal mostly — but a classy one and does classic covers with a touch of heavy metal. I am just trying to show it to you — how Brits spread their culture around the world — without bombs — but through the art of music.

Tina S

Tina S (born 7 April 1999),[1] real name Tina Setkic, is a French guitarist specialising in covering technically difficult solos of heavy metal from Van Halen, Gary Moore, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, and Pink Floyd, and metalised classical music including pieces from Beethoven, Paganini, and Vivaldi .[2][3][4] From the age of thirteen, her popularity has increased, especially through YouTube and social media, attracting the attention of notable musicians and guitar manufacturers.[5] [6] Originally from the Paris region, she received classical guitar lessons at the age of 6,[7] and later studied under jazz-rock guitarist Renaud Louis-Servais.[8][6] At the age of 9 she covered the classic version of Hotel California by the Eagles and at 13 she began to specialise in electric rock.[9]

For example — this is her cover of Pink Floyd's «Comfortably Numb»

Yeah, course I heard of her, «Je Veux» was known here, but didn't make it through the charts — she is a basque artist (to basque — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basque_music), here buskers are people who mostly play in the streets, etc.

They are all right — very Gothic — a bit like Nightwish. If they didn't sing in English (being a German group) — they wouldn't have had any international success. Metallica made a huge impact on all of these groups — but a lot of heavy metal fans (proper hard core ones) — consider ~Metallica traitors — like they betrayed the Heavy metal. The truth is — they popularized it. Americans popularize everything British. Heavy metal was born in Britain, amongst working class mainly — in people's basements and garages — in 70s and 80s, etc. But until Metallica — most didn't like it. After Metallica's success — the world revolution happened with heavy metal — people started playing it in other countries, groups like Nightwish in Finland and Blind Guardian in Germany were born.
Got to go now).

P. S. That track is great, but so sad. All heavy metal is sad, it suits when one is a bit depressed, and I am hardly ever depressed — when i am sad — I always try to jump out of it.

This is my favorite of all times by Metallica.
