    The Today show (third hour) just had a nice sit-down interview live with Maia and Alex. Discussion of their Olympic experience thus far as well as their popularity on social media.

    ETA, photo of the Shibutanis with Al Roker, Willie Geist, and Natalie Morales:

    ETA, the Shibs recounted the Opening Ceremony with words and photos for People magazine:

    Michael Buble's tweet captured his enthusiasm for Maia and Alex's use of his music for their Olympic Short Dance.

    MICHAEL BUBLE was excited to watch Maia and Alex skate to his medley of songs for their Olympic Short dance.

    Twitter: "I feel like I won the gold tonight @MaiaShibutani & @AlexShibutani used my music! #honored #shibutani #ShibSibs @USFigureSkating #Sochi2014"

    In addition to Tweeting, he posted a link to his Facebook page including a link to a video of their performance provided by a fan (from Russian television I believe).

    https://www.facebook.com/MichaelBuble

    Maia and Alex exchanged tweets with Buble, and the media stories followed:

    At the bottom of this story are interviews with the Shibutanis and Coomes and Buckland about skating to Michael Jackson

    Yay! I'm glad to hear that. They are young and have a good foundation. I think they can really develop in the next four years.

    I'm so glad to hear that! P&B have verified they are retiring, V&M as well, probably D&W, although they have left themselves with an out to reincarnate I would not be surprised if C&L, upon thinking it over, decide to retire with Euro Gold & World Gold. Luca is 29. And the I&K split looks like it may be real. With all that room at the top, S&S appear to have a future!

    And it doesn't hurt that with C&B, they helped secure 3 spots for next year.

    I thought Shibsibd fans might like this quote from the FD thread. I did.

    As the only Americans amongst the incredible star-laden Stars on Ice Japan Tour, they seem to be having a wonderful time.
    Must be exciting to skate for sold out arenas full of enthusiastic Japanese fans!

    Lovely picture of Maia backstage with Tessa and Carolina from her Twitter account:

    Thank goodness they are so active on social media. Their ice skating adventures are just too fun to follow, especially when they take pictures with other ice skating favorites!

    (What I'd give to be friends with the Shibutanis)

    Japanese fans who have attended shows of SOI Japan report that Maia and Alex are performing a very dynamic and "DANCED UP" version of their MJ Free Dance on tour. The cast is loaded with all-stars so they are skating in the first half but they are getting enthusiastic standing ovations. Hope someone posts a video!
