I haven't seen a poll like this on the forum, so I decided to create one. I have only listed programs she has done since she entered the senior circuit, so her programs as a junior are not included. Picking a favorite LP of Mao is actually pretty hard as I find myself deciding among Nutcracker, Fantaisie, and Czardas. In the end, I choose Czardas because I feel it brings out the sheer joy of skating in Mao.

I like Fantaisie-Impromptu best. It shows Mao's outstanding skating skills the best.

Uhh, this is hard! All of them are wonderful!

Drama!

But Fantaisie-Impromptu stands out from all the rest. I love that program!

It was so hard for me to pick. Czardas was the first Mao program I ever saw and the one that made a hardcore Mao fan out of me, Fantaisie-Impromptu was absolutely beautiful and showed just how great Mao is artistically AND technically, and Bells is stunning IMO. I ended up voting for Fantaisie though, since so far (this may change when everything falls perfectly into place for Bells), that's the program I've connected emotionally with the most.

Aah! That was a hard one! I like all of Mao's LPs a lot!! scratch I settled for Bells of Moscow, but it was a really tight race with Fantaisie! And honestly, I couldn't really decide between the two until I thought that Bells touched me deeply even when it was not perfect while I had to wait for GPF and 4CC to truly feel that Mao was really feeling Fantaisie-Impromptu.

I voted for Bells, but Fantaisie and Czardas are right there too. I don't know, Bells is just so different from what most ladies skate to, and especially at Nationals, she made it work.

I love the Bells. I think she's showing more improvement with this program than others.

Hmm, for me, it's probably Fantasie-Impromptu, but I'm picking 'Nutcracker' because it was the first Mao program I ever saw, and it fit her absolutely perfectly! Many Hearts

Gosh! I love them all. But as of this moment, I'll have to go with Fantaisie-Impromptu. This may change after 4CC or the Olympics, though. Love Hearts

Fantaisie-Impromptu! Bells came a close second, but I picked Fantaisie in the end because it showcased Mao's lightness & her amazing jumping ability the best IMO, while still being a mature and elegant program.

Not to mention I love her Fantaisie LP dresses the best

I had to go with Nutcracker. For one reason, that was the first program I ever saw Mao skate, and that was when I fell in love with her skating. The music, and choreography suited her personality, and her skating style really well. Plus, I really love all the music, and the story of the Nutcracker. I love Tchaikovsky's music too. Oh, and I also love pretty, princess-ie music for female skaters. At any age too. lol. A lot of people disagree with me there, but that's just me Smile

Fantaisie is a close second. I really loved that program too, and I think if Mao were to ever go back to an old LP, that would be the best choice.

Czardas was a good, solid 3rd for me. It was a great program too.

I really love every program mao has made, but in the end my vote goes to bells of moscow because it was after this performance that I became a hardcore fan of mao and actually is the first program I ever saw of mao, but my second choice would be nutcracker Smile

the reason why I chose bells is because it was sooo different from what most women skate to and has ever skated to. it just had soo much depth's and one could almost see the sad story behind it... not to mention to be able to pick such a diffecult piece to skate to is just incredible and shows how much courage mao has, and for such a delicate and light skater like mao to be able to to skate to such dark music and interpret it soo well it's just magnificent...just shows what a great artist she is.. Drama!

Hmm this is definitely tough...but I think I'll choose Czardas. I just love the footwork she does into her triple axel!

Me too. Bells Of Moscow is the best!!!!!!

Whenever I watch the program, I make tight fists, forgetting the breath, keeping a feeling of tension through 4 minutes.

Nobody knows how much hard time got through for Mao to get the soulful expressiveness. I can only imagine the hardship. But that imagination always inspires and encourages me a lot.cheers

Fantasie-Impromptu. Especially how she performed at the World Champs.
It was one of the videos that hooked me to her!! Smile

Fantasie-Impromptu definitely. It was the first program I saw, and I immediately fell in love with it. I seriously think that LP showed Mao at her best: light, airy and magically captivating.

My least fave would be Masquerade. It was too monotonous for an LP, didn't have the drama of "Bells' to spice things up, and left me feeling like Mao could do better. It's a good program, yes, but it worked better as an SP.
