MUSIC AND CHOREOGRAPHERS SET FOR "THIN ICE," SKATING EXTRAVAGANZA AIRING FRIDAY MARCH 19 AND SUNDAY, MARCH 21 ON ABC

Olympic Darling Joannie Rochette to Perform Moving Tribute to Her Late Mother in Friday's Show

More good news for skating aficionados: Music and choreographer details have been unveiled for "Thin Ice," a live, televised figure-skating reality competition that will originate from the Premier Ballroom of the MGM Grand at Foxwoods March 18 through 21, and will air in primetime on the ABC Television Network on March 19 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) and March 21 (7:00-8:00 p.m., ET).

Joannie Rochette, the courageous Canadian figure skater who won a bronze medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver just four days after losing her mother to a heart attack, will perform in the March 19 show, skating to "Vole" (English translation: "Fly") by her late mother's favorite artist, fellow Canadian Celine Dion. The song includes the touching and appropriate lyrics "Fly fly little flame/Fly my angel, my soul/Leave your misery's skin/Go rediscover the light."
