I love Ashley's intensity and grace.
What made Michelle so special is hard to articulate. But she had a way of bringing a piece of music alive in a way very few skaters ever approach. Songs and singers I would have never paid attention to suddenly become the most amazing pieces of music I've heard in a long time, after Michelle skates to them. And I'm not even a huge fan. Of course, this doesn't work with everything she skated to, and she frequently started with great music. But still, I think it's something about her. She presents music to the viewer like Sergei presented Katia, lol.
