Ganesh will always bring me memories of Asami Mizukawa [1].

Here’s a clip of the show featuring Black Ganesha. xD

Ice-skating with the Stars

September 7, 2013 — 3 Comments

I subscribed to the KhamatovaInfo YouTube channel not long ago and they uploaded this clip of what seems to be the latest season of Lednikoviy Period (Ледниковый период) — or Ice Age, if you must. An “ice-skating with the stars” kind of TV contest. In the clip linked above, there’s a tiny appearance by Khamatova as guest (or maybe guest judge??), so I went quick-digging… and found this~

Scottish ice-skating turned ice-skating Riverdance with a totally focused Khamatova.

Apparently Chulpan was part of the first series of the show that aired back in 2007, in which she was paired with ice-skater (ice-dancer???) Roman Kostomarov, and pushed ahead to become the winner of the season. This is the moment that I grin knowing Chulpan is multi-talented — and actually remember that she used to ice-skate before an injury.

Plus, it’s really an advantage that the guy leads.

Here are the list of her performances I could find:

  1. Hip Hop (I suppose? or Urban?) – Performance 1 – Give it to Me by Timbaland ft. Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake
  2. Performance 2 is listed above. (Perfect Score)
  3. 50s Rock n Roll? – Performance 3 – I Put a Spell on You by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
  4. Classic ? – Performance 4 – (Perfect Score)
  5. Samba? (Maybe Latin?) – Performance 5 – Mas que Nada by Sergio Mendes
  6. French? – Performance 6 [alt. link with audio] – Padam Padam by Edith Piaf
  7. Full-on Russian – Performance 7Love and Poverty (Любовь и бедность) from Hello, I’m your Aunt! (Здравствуйте, я ваша тётя!) [1]
  8. Contemporary ? – Performance 8 – it’s supposed to be a piece from O Clone, the Brazilian soap unless there’s something else that’s called Clone. However, I haven’t been able to identify the name of the track.
  9. Classic (or Broadway??) – Performance 9 – Jesus Christ Superstar
  10. X – missing clip??
  11. Classic Russian – Performance 11 – The Woman Who Sings (Женщина, которая поёт) by Alla Pugacheva
  12. Russian Alt Rock (or Rock n Roll Twist??) – Performance 12 – What Do You (Что ты имела) by Neschastny Sluchai (Несчастный случай)
  13. Full-on Russian – Final Performance – Music Unknown

If I spoke fluent Russian, I would’ve taken a plane to watch her doing theater. xD

This year’s season of The Voice of China is a bit on the meh side compared to last year’s. Some good talents, but not as awing as some of last year’s. This battle for Wang Feng’s team, though, from Simon Chung (鐘偉強) of Hong Kong singing it out with Beijing-based Bi Xia (毕夏) with the classic Hey Jude was pretty emotional.

The whole father/daughter interaction going on, because Simon took the time to guide Bi Xia through the song and Bi Xia’s knowing what he’d done for her makes the whole elimination process all the more painful.

Other battle highlights~

From Na Ying’s team:
Yi Guang Nian (毅光年) Vs. Sheng Yin Yue Tuan (声音乐团) – I Surrender (没离开过)

From Amei’s team:
Zhang Xin (张新) Vs. Liu Zi Chen (刘籽辰) – What’s the Trouble in your Mind (你在煩惱什麼) + We Are Young

I don’t think anyone needs more than a few words on this [1].

Remember when this was standard?

*pats, pats*

I really need to make time to watch Rena Nounen and have a clear opinion on her, instead of clouding it with Ama-chan.
