    Its very much a personal thing - some people like to chose something which they can move slowly and gracefully to. Not being graceful myself i like something upbeat and entertaining. This tends to get the crowd a bit more interested too.

    Personally i think its good to have something people know as well.

    I'm with Annie on this. I find if the music bores me then I can't get into the display unless the competitor is really outstanding then I just become dumbstruck Too many IMO are using R&B and it just sends me to sleep

    There's nothing better than an piece of upbeat music or something with a dramatic build up if it is a slow piece (Alpha by Vangelis is my old time favorite).

    However, work with something that you feel comfortable with and suits you and your posing style.

    I'd agree with the dramatic build up...

    I also think, unless you're a gymnast, extremely good poser, or dancer, fast music can be a problem for women as they rush through a routine messily...

    Hence, my personal preference is for music that's quite slow but as outlined above, builds to a climax.

    It depends what suits you, and hat you feel comfortable with.

    I really like Christina Aguilera, Pink and rock music with a bit of oomph to pose to.

    i used christina aquilera "fighter" this yr but also considered guns n roses "welcome to the jungle" and "sweet child of mine", david bowie "rebel rebel", "moulin rouge", leanne rimes "cant fight the moonlight", couple of meatloaf tracks, ATB's "9pm ti I come", Public Domain "operation blade", and several others which i cant think of now

    as ppl said its really a personal thing.... try going onto www.amazon.com and look up compilation albums of the types of music you like, and by reading through the track listings you may see a song you love but you hadnt thought of or had forgotten about
