I felt like they should have placed higher, but I'm not a technical specialist. What I enjoy so much with this couple is the unique spin they put on various styles. A tango FD is so standard, but they're really producing something different (such as in the opening sequence) that still feels like an actual tango. I recall their SD last season also included some really original-seeming elements that separated it a bit from the other general waltzes. It's a little tough to think ahead to Nationals, as I also adore Paul/Islam and want them to succeed...but Canada really has some lovely, fresh up-and-comers right now.
