I am shocked that V&M didn't have their own Fan Fest thread before now. I love both them and D&W and I love the rivalry between these two teams. They are so different from each other but both so talented. It's like comparing apples and oranges, so I just let the judges decide the results while I sit back and enjoy the genius of both teams.
So, what are your favorite programs from V&M? They put the "dance" back in ice dance, and they are so amazing to watch. At the top of my list are Umbrellas of Cherbourg and Mahler. I also love their 2010 OD. Funny Face was great, although I still like Umbrellas of Cherbourg and Mahler more. As far as Carmen, I personally love it and I'm so glad they didn't do a run-of the mill Carmen interpretation.
Umbrellas of Cherbourg, so passionate and romantic and it flows so well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRjqNbM9RHM
Mahler: I can't believe they were able to produce something so breathtakingly beautiful with Tessa in so much pain. What a moment on Olympic ice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiHKNVQWis4
Farrucas OD: They brought the music alive and expressed it so well with such quick and precise movement. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6mge7uZbLo
Funny Face: A unique program, subtle but so wonderful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYvzKBbSPhs
