    Alexandra Stepanova & Ivan Bukin

    I really enjoy their FD this season and have a feeling that this team is going to achieve much more things in future.

    FD at Russian Nationals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxDPAHLNYMo

    Their reaction after seeing the scores was amazing!!

    I've liked them for a while now, and thanks for starting the thread. I think they are very promising and I look forward to them improving.
    And on a non-skating note: They are simply gorgeous.

    Agree! I saw them in person during JGP Bosphorus Cup 2012 and they were like Hollywood stars fascinating people around their way when they walk!!

    I had no idea who they were before this season, but they really caught my eye during Skate America: the sit twizzles, the million-position lifts, and her oh-so-diva hands at the end of the SD. Tanith Belbin (or was it Carol Lane? My memory... ) said that in every lift, twizzle, and combination spin, this team is always adding some form of innovation. They've received some flak for their SS and TAT's overhype, but I really appreciate how different they try to be.

    Their FD took a while to click with me, but I suddenly "got it" at Nationals. And they were, of course, very cute in the K&C.

    Welcome S/B!!!!!! You are one of my favorites team. You reminded me of the old great Russian ice dancers.

    Congratulations to Alexandra and Ivan. Definitely not a result I would've foreseen.
