These Were the Figure Skating Songs at the 2018 Winter Olympics That Everyone Was Talking About

If you found the figure skating competition at this years2018 Winter Olympicsmore exciting than usual, youre not alone. Following the 2014 Sochi Games, a rule change in the world of skating loosened the song selection process, enabling athletes to soundtrack their jumps and spins to music with lyrics. (For pairs ice dancing, lyrics have been allowed for about a decade.)

While many skatersstill stick to the classicswhen choosing what to perform to selections from TchaikovskysSwan Lakeand BizetsCarmenremain standard fare across the ice others have started experimenting with pop and rock. New favorites popped up during the PyeongChang skating events, including pretty much anything by Coldplay (thanks,Shib SibsandAdam Rippon!), covers of tear-jerker Hallelujah (shoutout to veteran skaterPatrick Chan), and nods to bands like the Beatles, Snow Patrol, and Muse. (Plus lots of Despacito for the Latin-themed part of the competition and a smattering of Ed Sheeran and Adele tunes.) But a number of performances stood out in particular for their unorthodox selections. Medal winners or not, here were the Olympics most memorable routines when it came to the music, from a Beyonc selection to an Elvis impression.

Hungarys Ivett Tothmade quite an impressionduring the womens short program, busting out the AC/DC for an instantly-viral show on ice. Skating to legendary rock tunes Back in Black and Thunderstruck, Toth even matched her outfit to the theme, donning a black leather-like studded pant-and-vest combo. The reaction? Total delight on the part of the internet, which was shocked out of a classical music slumber by her unorthodox choice.

When skater Javier Fernandez took to the ice for his long program, he chose a classic piece of music: Man of La Mancha from the Don Quixote opera. It was a fitting selection for the proudly Spanish athlete, who ultimately took home the bronze, Spainsfirst skating medalever at a Winter Olympics. (Turns out that, unlike Don Quixote himself, Fernandez wasnt dreaming an impossible dream at this Olympics after all.) Suited up in an appropriately romantic country-style blouse, Fernandez won the internets heart with his charming style, elegant skating, and the sultry Spanish guitar strains of his music choice crescendoing into a dramatic finish, proving that even old-school favorites can have a place in skatings new landscape. Fernandezhad said beforethat the music was meant to resonate with fans back home, especially as he continues to grow the sports popularity in a country not best known for ice sports.

There was bound to be some Beyonc at the Olympics. French skater Ma-Brnice Mit brought the Queen to the ice with her short program, performing to the beloved singers iconic and empowering songRun the World (Girls)in a high-energy routine that got the party started at the rink. (She also mixed in Halo for good measure.) Mit also bucked norms in true Bey style by eschewing a typical skirt for a bedazzled bodysuit. One can imagine Beyonc would definitely approve. I wanted to do something that was very me, something fun, something I would enjoy,she toldCosmopolitanof her distinctive music choice.

Not everyone was aware that theres a jazz version of the Oasis classic Wonderwall. But a big band jazz version sungby Paul Ankadoes exist, and German skater Paul Fentzdecided to bring it outinto the worlds attention with his short program for the team event early on in the Olympics. It became an instant online lighting rod for discussion was it blasphemous to cover the original grunge-rock hit in this way? Or was Fentzs choice appropriately out-there for Olympic ice? In any case, it put him and his musical proclivities on the worlds radar.

Fentzcontinued to raise eyebrowswith his music selections, putting on aGame of Thrones-themed performance for his long program in the individual event that included faux-chain-mail costuming and the theme song of HBOs blockbustermedieval fantasy show.He even nodded to the character of Jaime Lannister with a bit of red fabric at his sleeve, an insider reference to the knights severed hand. The inherent drama of the song gave gravitas to his skating, although he was ultimately unable to fight his way up to medaling status. At least he clearly had fun with it.

Viewers around the worldfell madly in lovewith gold medalist ice dancersScott Moir and Tessa Virtueof Canada this year thanks in no small part to their memorableMoulin Rouge!medley for their long program. First seen during the team event, and then reprised in their individual performance, the passionate rendition of El Tango de Roxanne (and tender reprise of Come What May) won fans of every nation, includingMoulin Rouge!director Baz Luhrmann himself and fanned the flames of the rumors surrounding theirown relationship.As it happens, Virtue and Moir werent the only skaters to decide to bring the movie to life on the ice this year. No fewer than five others, includingAmerican pair dancersAlexa Scimeca-Knierim and Chris Knierim, also hadMoulin Rouge!as their music, sparking a debate online about the evergreen appeal of the 2001 movie andboosting the soundtrackback onto the iTunes charts.

Russias Mikhail Kolyada decided to pay tribute to the King for his free skate program, playing Cant Help Falling in Love followed by a bit of Rip It Up for his routine. He took the character even further, dressing up in a studded black outfit with a purple neck fabric and sparkly belt that referenced Elviss own iconic looks. While some were fans of his rock n roll routine, not everyone believed he sold it with his performance. Kolyada ultimately assisted with his fellowOlympic Athletes from Russiain snagging a silver medal in the team event, although judges apparently found his Elvis impersonation a bit lackluster in the mens individual event; heplaced eighth.

Adam Rippon was theundeniable breakout starof the 2018 Winter Olympics; he can now count Reese Witherspoon, Britney Spears and Gus Kenworthy among his biggest fans. He became PyeongChangs official sweetheart through a mix of social commentary, viral interview quotes, and flawless skating routines. While his emotional long program to Coldplay helped Team USA win a bronze medal, it was his individual short program that brought the party to the ice rink. Ida Corrs Let Me Think About remixed by Dutch DJ Fedde Le Grand was an inspired choice for Rippon, who made full use of the popular 2000s dance track to show off his moves and his personality,calling the routinea little trashy, a little fun. Of course, coming from the skater who has previously performed to hisown cover of a Rihannasong, it should be no surprise that hes willing to take risks to put his talents in the best light. (And singer Corr approved of his song choice,for the record.)

U.S.ice dancing siblingsMaia and Alex Shibutani havebeen Coldplay fansfor a while, first starting skating to Fix You back in 2016 as the beginning of a trilogy of routines. Their love for the band culminated in their Paradise performance at PyeongChang, where they earned the bronze medal in the team and individual events thanks to their effortlessly synchronized routines. Their music has helped and inspired us to become the skaters we always hoped we could be,Alex once wroteof the band soon after seeing one of their shows this fall. When we skate to Coldplay, we are Maia and Alex. We are truly ourselves. We tell our story, dream our dream, and live in our Paradise. Coldplay is a pretty natural choice for ice dance, thanks to the soaring melodies and emotional lyrics Chris Martin is known for; the Shibutanis werent the only ones who decided to make use of a Coldplay tune. The internet couldnt help but notice.
