2000

Television Special on NBC, Hershey PA, USA - Presented by Alberto VO5

Subject Matter: “The Kat Club”, a crazy Jazz Bar, set the stage for a female all-star ensemble, that whisked the crowd away into the roaring twenties. The live jazz band “Dave’s True Story” helped create an authentic atmosphere. The ice burned during their rendition of the classic “Fever”, and Katarina's freestyle performance to it was and is her absolute favorite.

1999

Television Special, Atlantic City, NJ, USA – Presented by Alberto VO5

Subject Matter: For her very first US television special, Katarina was inspired to create a figure skating show with only women performing. Among them were the current gold medal winners Tara Lipinski and Ekatarina Gordeeva, as well as world champions Lu Chen and Yuka Sato. The show became a celebration in praise of women. At the same time, the figure skater should show some respect for the men in her life with her presentation. For Katarina it was a very special moment, as she danced to the song “Let’s Fall in Love”. Diana Krall, whose music Katarina had first heard and loved a couple of years prior to this, sang it live. Diana was the first singer Katarina invited to be a special guest on “Divas on Ice”
