It's between Anna & Luca or Ashley for me.
Ashley really looked like a lady against girls at TEB & I loved watching her.
Anna & Luca are going back to pure dance which is really difficult to do with the judging system.
Hard to vote for this as people like Jason Brown and Ashley Wagner (and Adam Rippon, although he's not on the poll) were already in my good books. Radionova I was aware of in Juniors. So the award goes to....PChan. I never thought I'd see the day. But I saw him live at TEB and...yeah, he was that good.
Touching the void.
I was introduced to Papadakis/Cizeron at TEB http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGwG1lr9QyE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrlnJRy1mz4 and immediately fell in love with their style, look, and unique music selections. I love the fluid body movement of Guillaume in particular. He's quite the stunning looker too! I look forward to their future with great anticipation!
Also, this is how they valiantly rebounded in the FD from a very rough SD outing at the Cup of Russia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-m5upuC2i7Y

Gilles/Poirier. They never impressed me before, but I think their Hitchcock Free Dance this year has the most interesting concept and choreography of all the Free Dances.
Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue.
The past few seasons I've enjoyed them, but this year they seem to have taken their skating to a new level. I love both of their programs, especially their FD.
I am cautiously hopeful that they will kick some serious ass at Nationals and bump off Chock/Bates or the ShibSibs for a spot on the Olympic and World Teams.
