German figure skater Paul Fentz opted to go with a jazz/swing version of Oasis’ ‘Wonderwall’ last night during the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. This year is the first year that skaters have been allowed the use of music with lyrics in their routines, which has brought forth other interesting submissions like Ed Sheehan’s ‘Make it Rain’ for example.
In the UK, home of Oasis, however, reactions have been mixed.
Someone at the Olympics is skating to a Harry Connick-like version of Wonderwall and even if you hate Oasis this is a crime.

Play this version of Wonderwall in the lobby of my funeral.

Liam Gallagher has yet to comment but I’m sure there’s a tweet brewing somewhere.
Here is Paul Fentz’s performance!
