    What do you think is the best US Pairs free skate program of the past 10 years? I'm talking more in terms of the most magical, fascinating, exciting program, rather than the most technically accomplished.

    ITA. Hands down, absolutely, the best FS by an American pair in the last 10 years.

    I agree 100 percent. I love, love that free skate. Even if a million people have skated to the bombastic remix version of RFAD since.

    Scott & Fein... choreo by Shanti Rushpaul and Gwendal Peizerat :swoon: I'm pleasantly surprised I'm not the only one who voted for them!

    Mine too. And they are head and shoulders above all the other US pairs in my book.

    That's one of my favorites too! I hardly recognized Tiffany Scott. Rushpaul & Peizerat should do more pairs choreography.

    it's the first thing I thought of when I saw the thread title

    the only other US pairs LP I like as much is Stiegler/Zimmerman "Sorcerer's Apprentice"

    I wish that was on youtube. I loved the LP, it just went by in a flash! And I loved the crowd response to their performance. :) I can't believe I've never seen that before.
