    I just have to say that I just watched M&C's SD then T&S's right after, and there is no comparison. It just made me so excited for the season to start and I really think this SD will have some great results. It OOZES musicality... so jazzy...they are so into their knees, so into the music and it's so refreshing love them.

    I agree. Hate to be blunt (or do I?) but M&C's is BLAND in comparison.

    Guys, I hope they keep Stay as their exo number. Selfishly, I would love to see a better quality recording of it.

    I wanted them to keep it too, but now I hope they have another program just because it's their final season and I want them to have a new EX. But if they do I will not be complaining lol.

    Anyways this was posted at FF and I thought it was an old one because I read an article before with Nikita saying something similar, but apparently it's from a new article:
    The Russians will have plenty of competition in Sochi. Their main rivals are Nathalie Pechalat and Fabian Bourzat of France, and, of course, the current Olympic champions, - Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada. Scott Moir is incidentally Nikita’s idol.

    Nikita feels that Scott Moir is an ideal partner, a real macho guarding Tessa every single second as if she were an antique vase. During their performance, Moir plays to the stands, fears nothing and pushes ahead with his dance the way an athlete of genius should do.

    "Real macho". You know, Spanish is my first language and that's not a very appealing description to a woman these days LOL. I guess he means that he is very masculine and presents his female partner well. Heh.

    Lol yes. That's not my favorite word either. The gist of the quote is cute though.

    I disagree. I think both programs are total snoozefests. So far what I've seen of the Finnsteps makes it seem like compulsories are back.

    Ha! I was just thinking that EXACT same thing! I'd love to see a good quality recording! It makes me wonder, though, if they use it as an EX if they'll keep the same beginning. I also want to see a new EX (Goose and the Carmen rotational included!!). So I'm going to hope they do "Stay" at Finlandia and debut a new one at Skate Canada! You know, that way we can have it ALL!

    I just remembered - didn't V/M dance a quickstep to "I've could've danced all night"?

    I just saw D/W's new FD.So they not only recycled their own lifts and moves in the past few seasons, but now start to recycle other's lifts. How creative of them. I thought ice dancing values the creativity the most. I really miss the good old days.

    The practice clips are posted. Since it has been talked up so much, I have to check it out. White is invisible as ususal, and I see the new-found connection is gone again. The SD is available,too. It's quite boring TBH. I can't wait to see how the judges receive them compared to V/M.

    I watched it right after & you just notice there are more details in V/M's choreography. There's more character & the music really goes well with the choreography. V/M's ending pose is creative too.

    When they will show CSOI on CBC? I downloaded last season version and it was in such great HD quality. Wish to see Stay in HD too.
    I think they will use Stay, because now they are so busy with competitive programs.

    And yes, VM used modern version of I want dance all night in exhibitions at GP in 2007, but then change it into Dare to move

    Thanks, MissJD! My greatest wish/hope: all their programs will be posted in YouTube ASAP after each competition

    Out of curiosity, I did watch D/W's SD. I giggled at one point...not at their routine...but because I remembered someone's comment stating in hopes that D/W will change their twizzles this season...well, they've stuck on the same one for the umpteenth time...

    I love "Stay"...however, I'm greedy! I'd love to see new EX from them

    I'm not sure I like to hear people saying the programs are both bland and recycled because the judges seem to prefer both in D/W. Look what happened last year - V/M never really got a fair judging of their FD at least IMO.

    In all fairness, it's not DW's fault that the lifts are recycled, they are not the choreographers. What is their responsibility is to execute the choreography within the theme, using impeccable skating skills. From the clips we've seen, there seems to be less of the running, hopping steps, but unfortunately this seems to expose their weak bladework, there's alot of 2 foot skating. They've also slowed down too, so the lack of finesse in holding positions, maintaining lines and carriage are front and center.

    Please don't chastise me for discussing DW in the VM thread, but I'm just answering the above comment.

    I am of the opinion that D/W should not be discussed in the V/M thread. It only invites trolls. It's tempting to compare, but it always leads to contention.
