Every four years all eyes turn to figure skating during the Winter Olympics. If you're like most, you're probably a casual fan and noticed something different tonight in the men's short program as it was contentested for the team competition. For the first time in the Olympics, singles and pairs skaters can compete to music with lyrics.
That led us, at NBCOlympics.com, to ask a very important question:
The freedom to choose a song with lyrics has been met by mixed reaction from both fans and skaters alike. Perhaps, the most newsworthy example of a skater taking a risk with lyrics is Jimmy Ma, who has performed his short program to Eminem and "Turn Down for What" at the 2017 United States championships.
