    this will seem arrogrant if i posted it in the "performances that garnered a standing ovation before it finished" thread . . . but add tessa and scott at 2013 worlds. with it being their last worlds, in their hometown, five minutes from tessa's home (15 minutes from scott's) . . . with them having fulfilled their dreams, becoming the most decorated canadian ice dancers in history (among the all-time greats) . . . i expect it to be crazy BEFORE they take their opening pose. as someone on ff said, i'm glad they can skate carmen without music because i doubt they'll be hearing any of it, over the applause, cheers, tears. win, lose or draw, the sense of history will be palatable and the moment incredible.

    v/m fans planning to go there should plan a standing ovation for them before they start their fd (tbh if i were going to worlds i would be standing and cheering throughout their entire performance well until someone tells me to stfu and sit down :lol:) we need to cheer louder than vancouver

    btw did the japanese audience give them a standing o after the stop at 4cc? i know they were cheering and clapping along but i dont remember the rest

    I started that thread and I most definitely EXPECT V/M's London Worlds performance to be added to the list.

    I also watched their Vancouver performance again but unfortunately the camera was panned really up close so you can't see the audience's reaction which was why I didn't add their OGM performance to the list. The original intention was to find vids with the chill-down-the-spine feeling that I get watching those epic performances WITH audience's standing up but an excellent performance is still an excellent performance!

    yeah it was really hard to tell whether the audience was standing up or not in their ogm performances
    im pretty sure people are gonna give me shit for my contribution :lol: because you can hardly tell if the people are giving them a standing o
    but then again the crowd started cheering louder than the music before their cd ended and the announcer did say the audience was on their feet
    so im going to assume thats what happened :lol:

    V/M most certainly did get standing ovations for their Olympic performances but not before they finished. I think it was so tight and we didn't want to jinx ourselves because we've never won gold in ice dance and at that point in the games Canada had a few disappointments and that FD inspires silence. I think Worlds again will be so tight that no one will probably breath until it's over let alone give them a standing ovation before they strike their final pose, unless of course they have a pretty decent lead after the SD(which I doubt) and skate a flawless FD. However, whatever the result I just hope V/M kill it and make the judges really ask themselves how they can deny them a third and final title.

    I doubt their FD inspired that type of applause, but their OD probably did. The level of sustained applause was insane

    I am pretty sure I was on my feet before the end of Mahler as well as Farrucas at the Olympics! But it was SO LOUD in there and the whole thing was just like a crazy dream.

    Since I will be at worlds this year I would feel better if the crowd didn't go nuts until after they competed but I guess marina will have prepared them for everything.

    Wow!! Dani these are simply amazing photographs. They truly emphasize the intricacy and complexity, and exquisite artistry of this magnificent couple. One hopes that the ballroom dancer who made (IMHO) such inaccurate and inane comments on their lines and intimacy, gets to view these. Dani you have been blessed with an amazing gift. I really thank you for this wonderful gallery of photos.

    Just thought I'd mention that each day on the front inside page of the Toronto Globe and Mail print edition, a special section "A Moment in Time" commemorates a significant past event on this date. When I opened my paper today, I immediately smiled.

    The "moment in time" for today, Feb. 22, highlights Feb. 22, 2010, "Virtue and Moir Win Canada's First Olympic Gold in Ice Dancing", complete with a beautiful picture of them taken just after they received their gold medals, and a lovely short write-up as well. :)

    Pani, are you referring to how well Katia was skating OR that she was skating to music being used by D/W and that Meryl outfit somewhat resembles what Katia is shown wearing in this clip? Maybe because it's ballet and you wish to see V/M do something balletic next season? Just curious as to what it is you wanted us to "see".

    I also felt the costume was similar. The issue IMO is has Meryl become Marina's muse as Katia was...

    Well, the Mahler free dance music was used by Katia in her celebration of Sergei's life (also choreographed by Marina).

    How you know, before Marina gave Katias music to Tessa. Now - to Meryl ;)
    Still cant understand, why she didnt give ballet to our beautifull Tessa :)

    I am hoping for a ballet FD next year for V/M. Tessa spoke years ago about how she dreamed of doing a ballet program some day, and it would fit in so well with her ballet training. :)
