    thanks for posting it! to me it looked like they were getting ahead of the music, even though it's the abbreviated version of carmen, but they still managed to milk every note just to time their ending pose to the end of the music hehehe

    Thanks for Carmen video. Is this full version? They need more ice to do this FD.
    And I think its first time Tessa and Scott become number 1 in ISU World standing? Congrats to them! Two full seasons now paid off.

    Thank you everyone for the videos and pictures. Although, I like the competitive Carmen more (it was just a masterpiece), I find the exhibition Carmen very nice as well.
    And pani it is not the full version. Circa 30 seconds at the beginning are missing, because the battery of the camera died and the poster had to change the camera quickly.

    Also, great that Tessa and Scott are number 1 again, back where they belong!

    Tessa and Scott never was number 1 in ISU World standings, because last time.they had 2 full seasons was in 2006-2008.

    Wow, it's true! Well, I am glad it finally happened even if I don't really care much for these rankings. But it must be nice for your resume, so way to go, guys!

    Not to mention that Tessa and Scott do actually cover a LOT of ice so it must be tricky for them to skate when the space is limited. But this program is still a masterpiece, my goodness, I love Carmen SO much. It's the kind of program you never forget.

    I remeber they talk about they want to be number one in ranking.
    Yes, this ranking isnt important, but i hope this will rice there confidence, when they will remeber, how long they couldnt skate two full seasons and how much they won during this 2 years.

    That is true I guess that why the exhibition version is slower.

    Also, why burn yourself out. The audience isn't judging anyone based on that criteria. There may even be a safety issue involved with SOI shows. With the boards removed, what happens if a skater falls/skids across the ice blade first into the audience who are sitting at ice level? Would the carpeting provide sufficient resistance to stop the skid?

    I think because Finlandia Trophy (or any other B-competition) is not hosted by the ISU in cooperation with the respective national federation. But the scores and results are recognized by the ISU and therefore show show up in the World Ranking or are a possibility for skaters to gain the minimum scores before entering the Grand Prix events. But it is taking place according their website:

    Last season was more seriose B competitions - in Minsk, USA.
    I think D-W will go to Nebelhorn and V-M could skate at Thornhill Throhy or in Finlandia.
    Will you go, Marikat?

    Thank you!

    I hope they are doing Finlandia Trophy. The (non-geoblocked) coverage of the event was great and we got so many pictures and interviews with them. Finland seems to like them and they had a good experience there. Additionally, there are international judges so they could get some valuable feedback on both their programs.

    Lol.
    I love that program too. When I think of how they were lowballed the entire season I want to scream. Or throw something. Honestly I think I'm just barely starting to get over everything. (Actually me thinking about it right now is making me get angry all over again).

    Wow, this is gorgeous. Look at those lines. They are kind of bringing it with Stay, aren't they? It could be their best exo yet.

    And this is what you do to explain why Tessa Virtue is the best ice dancer in the world. Some are free to disagree, but we do have the images and footage to back it up.

    Today re-watched CD and OD from 2007 WCh. The best Shpilband dance is tango. Love his choreo the most.
    And D-W and V-M in there young age show different level of technickal elements - especially twizzles and step sequences.
    Tessa and Scott in tango its something speciall :p Her legs so long and that dress show this prefectly. Wish to see tango from them in ex or in CSOI in future. I know, they couldnt do this in competitions, but love to see them dance tango again.

    I bought the 2010 Olympics compilation DVD at a garage sale today - mostly because I couldn't resist a DVD that had V and M on the actual disc! Haha. I will have to watch it. I got it for $1. :)
