    My vote is surpassingly for Gordeeva and Grinkov, and the greatest pairs programs (amateur) for me include

    G & G, Moonlight Sonata, 1994 long program
    G & G, Mozart and more classical medley, 1988 Olympic long
    Mishkutenok and Dmitriev, Rachmaninoff, 1994 long
    Mishkutenok and Dmitriev, Dream of Love, 1992 long
    Meno and Sand, Nessun Dorma
    Shen and Zhao, 2010 long, Adagio in G Minor, Tomaso Albinoni

    What was S & Z's 2003 program?? I can't remember. I loved them. They really evolved and became so beautifully artistic. and their love story was also beautiful!

    And here they are in 2005, in their 51st year of performing together.

    Tai and Randy. All-time best U.S. pairs skaters.

    I think that was their amazing Turandot program, where she was injured but competed anyway. It was the year they became true artists.

    I will add Berezhnaya/Sikharulidze's Chaplin program (just one of many from them), and Sale/Pelletier's Love Story.

    G & G.. 1988 SP and LP. Unbelievable!!! I visit those performances every now and then to enjoy--and to remind myself how unbelievably spectacular they are/were!
