Ice dancing

So how cute are candian Ice dancing pair Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir?

Here they are skating to Pink Floyd last year:
Am stoked that their compulsory dance was recieved so well.
After last night they sit in second place behind the Russians.
Who, though not my favorite, really set the standard:

Can't seem to ever enjoy a Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto performance.
Feel like under the sequins Tanith is a super uptight beyotch:

They're into fourth place just behind the other americans Charlie Davis
and Meryl White in third. Think Davis and White are more tolerable.
Or maybe I'm just biased because of the bollywood routine
they'll be performing in sunday night's original dance.

Skating to "Dreams Illusions" it would appear that they were asking, nay begging for a Blades of Glory sequel to be made about them.
Loved this:

Hopefully here are your winners:
Felt a little confused about more than one score last night. Makes me want to blame this new scoring system. On the 6.0 scale it was very straight forward. But now it is so complex that even fans like myself have a hard time understanding the scores. The idea was to limit cheating but it seems like all it has done is disguise the judges' bias. Makes me kind of miss this:
Even if it is total cheese, I loved this program. At least we knew the judges had cheated.
Here is a link with the detailed score breakdowns.
