    This. The Eurosport announcer either doesn't know his stuff or is trying to drum up drama when he is like 'can they do it'? Of course they can't. Maybe this sounds cynical but it's true.

    Not as good as those a few movements that V/M did at practice.

    Tessa looks like a witch. I wish they would do something dark.

    Actually, Scott and Tessa did go from 6th to 2nd in one year.

    I'm sick of the romantic stuff with V/M. I would love to see them skate to "Night in Bald Mountain" or something similar.

    Wow, Tessa really saved herself there from a fall. I LOVE this program for Virtue + Moir! And they just had another stumble. Still, terrific program, IMO!

    Help me out here. What makes this a modern take on Carmen?

    Well, V/M have the superior Carmen and it will deservedly win. But I don't think it's going to be a "signature" piece compared to some of their other programs like Mahler. And I didn't enjoy it as much as C/L's Carmen.

    They're wearing black instead of red

    I might get slammed but this program is not doing it for me. This is the worst I think I've seen them skate in a while. I want to see a higher quality video before I say more because I risk being wrong if not but this was very mediocre from V/M at least IMO. (of course, I am comparing them to them, not the rest of the field. THey have the better Carmen but I don't see this being a signature program of theirs as said above. I have similar feeling re:D/W so far this year)

    I was bored and really, it doesn't seem like that revolutionary a Carmen.

    Wow, British comentator just said that Tessa was the best Carmen he’s ever seen. That was INTENSE.

    I found all the little stumbles and glitches throughout a bit worrying...but mediocre? No way. The passion and intensity V/M displayed throughout their FD was anything but.

    I like that it's not schmaltzy, sappy romanticism though; there's power with a bit of dark wildness thrown in too. I loved it!
