I was lucky enough to see this new number, too, and I also second everything that skatingfan04 said. Very much looking forward to your photos, Daniskates93, thank you!!
It was steamy but classy, mature yet adorable... just perfection. I'm laughing that we just had a conversation here about their expression, because I must say even I was slightly taken aback at how perfectly at home they seemed in this type of number. I've never been a huge fan of the song, but my disappointment lasted only a few seconds because I was immediately captivated. The program contained their straightline and curve lift from this year's FD, and lots of the wonderful in-hold moments from both programs, as well as some of their classic romantic moves from previous programs. Their connection was just stunning, and honestly, I am so proud of them for trying something a little new! They absolutely nailed it. Cute, sexy, very confident but sophisticated. And I should also put in a word about their actual skating, because their ice coverage was insanely good, the program flowed beautifully. They were very warmly received too, which was nice to hear
I'll also say a little bit about the group number they were in, choreographed by David Islam. It said "Caribbean" in the program, and then David tweeted that the theme was "Havana Nights". It was supposed to have P/I, G/P, R/H, Lauren Collins/ Danny Seymour, Hannah Whitley/Elliot Graham, Megan Koenig-Croft/Jake Richardson, Ekaterina Fedyushenko/Kaelen Dunker, Priya Ramesh/Brandon Labelle. I *think* what happened is that Danny's new partner, Yasmeen Jong, was the substitute, but she skated with Danny and Lauren skated with Asher. (Kharis was sick, if you haven't already read that elsewhere. I was very disappointed not to see them skate one last time, hope she feels better soon.) All the guys were in simple black, and Alex was wearing her Rumba SD dress. Some of it seemed a bit inspired by their SD, which was fun to see, it was such a lovely program, but that season was so riddled by disaster. Some really fun moments, and G/P and P/I did one side of the rumba pattern together. I think the music was Besame Mucho (?) and definitely Mujer Latina at the end. Man, can Alex Paul move!! And Mitch was great too. Honestly, they sold this number so well, too. The take away from this night was that they absolutely excelled at playful, flirty numbers, to steal some adjectives from skatingfan04. What a great night!!
