Before he even took the ice in Pyeongchang, South Korea, U.S. figure skating sensation Adam Rippon told Billboard that a rule change after the last Winter Olympics that allowed skaters to perform to music with lyrics had totally liberated him and opened up his routines to a galaxy of possibilities. His unchained spirit was on display again on Thursday night (Feb. 15) when the 28-year-old bronze medalist in the team competition lit up the rink with a performance cued to a hit remix of Danish singer Ida Corr's 2008 single "Let Me Think About It."
Not only was Rippon clearly motivated to do his best by the Eddie Thoneick remix of "Let Me Think" featuring Fedde Le Grand, but Corr herself tells Billboard that she was ecstatic that the whole world got to see the American favorite work it out to her song. "I felt proud and excited! As a songwriter it's such a pleasure knowing that people all around the world are introduced to your music," she tells Billboard in an email.
