ISU Skating Awards
ISU Skating Awards 2020
A long process lead to the final vote. The first long list of candidates were based on the results and experiences at the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating individual events and Final, ISU European Figure Skating Championships and ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships of the 2019/20 season. That list was then submitted to votes by the public, media and ISU Members between December 1, 2019 and February 10, 2020, which determined the three nominees in each category, that were announced on June 26, 2020.
The Jury had the responsibility of choosing the winner of each category among the nominees, who were revealed live on the ISU Skating Awards.
Thank you to the fantastic hosts of the show Tanith and Charlie White and to the amazing Aloe Blacc for the performance of his new song “My Way”, part of “All Love Everything” album, coming out on October 2, 2020. It was a great honor to be able to share that great moment of celebration and to be able to join forces to put athletes, coaches, choreographers and designers at the center stage.
Although the Figure Skating season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to the cancellation of the ISU Skating Awards show, meant to take place on the final day of the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2020 in Montréal (CAN), it was more important than ever to get together and honor those who worked so hard during the season. The ISU Skating Awards is an opportunity to celebrate Figure Skating and put athletes and those involved in making the sport what it is, back at the center stage.
