I thought technically, she did very very well. But as a freestyle, with the music and the way she set it up, that part sucked, imho. Then again as much as I dislike Anky, her 2006 WEG freestyle was one of the only ones that actually gave me chills when I saw it. The other was Hans Peter Minderhoud at the 2009 World cup.

I actually really liked the music, especially the Big Ben chimes for pirouettes. That was hot.

I thought the music was very good - very British. It actually had meaning and feeling behind it, rather than most Kur's nowdays with good catchy music but no 'story'.

I wasn't too thrilled about how the music was put together didn't really "flow" right (though I have a classically-trained ear, so that makes sense). I'm not British, but I LOVE the sound of Big Ben (and I love the movie the Great Escape).
The Music is extremely patriotic.

Land of hope and glory,
The Great escape
Jupiter (I vow to the my country)

Any Brit will recognise those instantly and if thye hae a patriotic bone in thier body will feel moved.

I didn't have a problem with the music selection, just some parts didn't seem to flow so well, imho, while other parts were fantastically executed. Each to their own;)
