Thanks, Buttercup, for the info!
They're so adorable, remind me of a pair of twins that I went to school with way back in the day, Carrie & Robbie Simpson.
Gorgeous dance from them & lovely fairytale costumes.
First time ever seeing this exquisite couple from the USA ~ she's a pure ballerina on skates, and he is her dashing escort.
Loved Chock/Zuerlein. She has a nice flowy blue dress, he has classic tuxedo.
Only 4th place for them. What was wrong?
Faela /Scali. I have naver beed a fan but lovely dance from them.
She has some feathers too! grey and pale pink, looks very nice for me. Massimo in a classic tuxedo. He somehow looks older this year.
35.37. Well deserved first place.

I love their dance, my fav thus far!
They look so differenet without all that makeup they wore last year, lots better, more natural.
Sure looked like they were having fun out there.
I could just stare at movie star hunk Massimo all day long.
Tanith looks really, really beautiful.
IMHO Tanith & Ben were by far the best couple out there ~ dance, music, expression, costumes, et al perfect ~ loved their last lift btw (reminded me of a couple from the USA last year; unfortunately I think they broke up)...
AND THEY EASILY GO INTO 1ST PLACE!!!!! WELL DESERVED!!!!1
Vancouver 2010, 247.23, Bronze
Agree. She's like a fairy tale's princess.

Oh, these costumes. Why does she need that bright reed for Waltz? I mean very bright! He has white tuxedo with loads of glitter as well.
Tanith/ Ben. Gorgeous white-gold under the knee dress and white tux from him.
Tanith is all smiles!
38.33. Into 1st place.
CD is done.
Off the ice
It's the CD... How can their music have been the best if everyone has the same music?

seethru ballgown in offwhite
he has a shiny vest with blacktails
Labored and kind of scrambly
lots of trouble keeping the leg still in position in the attitude turn
I'd have had it below W&P
6 Madison Chock/Greg Zuerlein USA (13th) 28.76
simple deep bluestrapless gown
he in black tails, tux shirt
slight stumble on a turn into a dip
light, waltzy feeling good crisp stepping
attititude turn somehow awkward
7 Federica Faiella/Massimo Scali ITA (8th) 35.37
IMO particularly unappetizing grey and pink feathered hemmed dress
skirt, other than the pink feathers is gray feathers
they knew the steps, but heavy. maybe due to the heavy, distracting skirt
No significant errors
8 Jana Khoklova/Sergei Novitski RUS (5th) 36.30
bright red flamenco ish dress on Jana. wide raggy pseudo gloves
Sergei in white the collar looks separate Odd no shirt
and some Liberace styling to his white jacket
some legline issues and maybe nervousness in 1st iteration
Got better as it went along. Deep dips.
height difference didn't help
crisp stepping though
9 Tanith Belbin/Benjamin Agosto USA (3rd) 38.33
Elegant strapless white gown, elbow length gloves. gold edging on top
Ben in white tails, pants. Clean shaven!
Best of the bunch
her free foot position seemed odd in the dips
first bit tighter than the last bit
Lovely dance, deservedly first
about the same score as V&M at TEB
