There. Gushing over. For now.
Ice Dance Obsessee
I said I liked their program better. There is absolutely no need to be so rude.

V/M - WOW! I didn't totally get this program in Paris but I got it today. It was so beautiful. Less shaky lifts and some changes as well. Fantastic!
Wicked Yankee Girl
Virtue and Moir
White dress on Tessa, very pretty. Not so lingerie like as the TEB version. Also shorter (a good thing)
30 seconds of random posing to start
The first lift is very wobbly. Scott had trouble with the back arabesque, keeping his leg still. May have a time penalty.
Dance spin very lovely indeed, with interesting shapes.
Gymnastic lift landed nicely on one foot this time.
Standing ovation of course!
Score 103.32 (This is the highest FD score of the year)
Total score 204.18 (and the highest total score)
First of course.

Nice comeback for V/M after yesterday. I thought his expression matched the mood of the music very well, hers in the other hand...
Third lovey dovey program in four seasons... Darn, last season it looked like they were going for the change...
They are wonderful skaters, I'd love to see them going for something different.
ETA: Looks like I'm the only one not gushing...

The ending to V/M's FD? Oh my. I have never, ever in my LIFE seen a more picture-perfect, goosebump-inducing pose. It just made me fall in love! With them, with ice dance, with life. . . . OK, time to breathe and stop gushing!
V/M got a 9.00 for performance (not one, but averaged out).
beep_beep, I really hope we see something different next season. Now, I'm fine with lovey-dovey.
Virtue/Moir = love! the ending is absolutely gorgeous! first time I got chills and cried in a good way this season...:o
V/M did skate very well and they deserved their victory. Now lets see how three north american teams stack up against each other at the GPF.

Reason: to add second para
I think the reason they went back to a lovey-dovey program is because it is their strength and seems to be the type of program that they are most comfortable with. If a team or person was in the hunt for the OGM, why wouldn't they use their strength? I think it would be stupid not to.
I'm perfectly fine with opinions different than mine about the program. No problem.
V/M were the clear and deserving winners here. W/P and B/S were also very, very good surprises.
GPF here we go. Can't wait to see how they'll stack up.
BTW, who made it to GPF?
