    I was going to make a comment that people are just stealth posting performances they enjoy and maybe I should make another thread that reads "Performances That Received a Standing Ovation LOOOOOOONG Before they End WITH VIDEO EVIDENCE" but oh well...

    ^LOL why don't we make it a little more flexible, and include performances where... I don't know... the crowd are clearly involved during it? Or something? :lol:

    In this spirit, I just re-watched Yuka Sato's winning LP at the 94 worlds, and whilst her ovation isn't LOOONG before the end, there's alot of audience support right from the word go. And funnily enough, a similar thing happened during her Lillehammer LP. Both great performances:

    You mean like where the skater spends five seconds getting up after wiping out during a crossover, and the audience applauds in encouragement? :p

    Only appropriate I add D/W's 2009 Worlds FD. :) I've always felt this performance should have the Free Dance portion outright that day.

    Oh, thanks for linking to that article! How amazing and what a story re Orser suggesting that Barb try going back to her old skates. Wow, what a great teammate. :) Before it's all over, Orser will likely share in even more figure skating lore, but maybe none will top that one. ;)

    Almost thought we'd get to add Duhamel/Radford's SP today to this list, the crowd was going insane with the clapping during the final spins, but they didn't quite stand up. (Man, she went crazy when they were done. Do we have a thread of best end of program skater reactions?)
