Oh how cute! Well I guess he meant that he now had two persons to take care of him who actually know something about FS... (I know he also has Salomé and she prolly also knows a lot about FS but we're talking about coaches here...)
I watched the whole show yesterday and I have to tell you that I have absolutely no clue what was it. The only what I understood was when he said "j'adore" Adele Also the part when they showed him singing was pretty cute
It is actually too long for me to watch all the dances, but I will look for Stephane's bits. And if I understand something in French, I'll translate. He looks great. And, OMG, first his own skating school, then coaching on Worlds level, now judge of the TV show, he is suddenly all so solid, important and grown up!! Time flies too fast...
Thank you, pianomaya! I'm busy with preparing publications for AS. But as soon as I'm done, I'll try to translate. Love to listen to him speaking French (don't we all? ) He is very emotional judge I should say.
Thank you for posting, pianomaya ! ... and may I start helping with the translation of Stéphane's reaction:
Stage 1, part 1 (03:45) Stéphane, answering the question 'on what aspects will he concentrate when judging': "I'm looking forward to get to know all the candidates, and I'm looking forward to discover many different dance styles, I think we will see many divers things. I'm expecting a lot of generosity. Because, on the ice or on a stage, what counts when you're performing is to give. And what you emanate. I await lots of generosity." (17:40) Stéphane, about the waltz: "I was impressed from the first seconds. I really liked the first, romantic encounter. I think you hardly looked at each other at first, but there was already that spirit of romance. And then, when you started to dance, with this head carriage and the layback posture, it was very, very beautiful with the movement. I really liked the whole dance. Congratulations."
Stage 1, part 2 (04:56) Stéphane about the hip hop: "Yes, I felt heated up. With those jackets and all the tricks, all those movements, it was very good. I liked a lot the energy between you and you all have very strong personalities. And I liked the flip in the air - one would say like a jump in figure skating. It was very impressive!" (18.31) Stéphane about the Samba: "I was impressed with the transformation. In the waltz we've seen a lot of romanticism between you, and here we could see how much you enjoyed it, I could see the joy in your dance, and a sharing. I liked it a lot ... And I do not quite support your opinion (note: the other judges who said the dancers lacked some 'explosion', some madness in the samba). "Really: Congratulations for your transformation, which was there, in my opinion."
Stage 1, part 3 (06:28) Stéphane about the contemporary dance: "I think that it was a very interesting choreography, I liked the originality of the piece. A expected a little bit more emotions, to really feel the guts in this choreography, the beat. But I liked a lot the work behind, the choreography, the originality."
Thank you so much, jomeku!! Glad to see you back. (And NOT because of your translations, but in general ) I'm a bit too much overloaded at the moment, have to finish all my "debts" from previous season and this one... starts today for me, with Deniss' SP (just to clarify, I'm not there, will be watching online, but still excited)
Thank you, reut ! (Also for your your 'Helsinki2017 recap specials' on www.facebook.com/absoluteskating/ I only found the time to 'overfly' them so far, but it's a pleasure to read the short interviews and reaction of the skaters to the fantastic, supportive Helsinki audience, even at morning practices ).
So I'll translate the second stage, too, in a while
