It's technically a memorial and not quite an exhibition, but Katya Gordeeva skating it in Sergei Grinkov's memory in 1996 will always be the most poignant and meaningful.
On the lighter side ... Johnny Weir skating to "Poker Face".
I love Mao skating to "Por Una Cabeza." The footwork is amazing, the spins, the connection with the music.
I love Jason and I like this ex, but it's not my favourite one of his. I much preferred "Drop in the Ocean" or "Fly Me To The Moon". Unpopular opinion, I know.

Plushy - Tosca, 2006 Olympics gala
Plushy - Mack the Knife
Brian - Sandstorm
(After all the mushy music so many tend to choose, I really tend to need a change of pace... )
4 Kings - Plushy, Brian, Stephane, Johnny
I agree, magical. Same program for the Ice Age Cup Of Professionals: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9snEtUHJZ0

Also I really like Yulia's 2014 Je T'aime
2012 Je T'aime was really good especially at the JGPF http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKKgZvEiyp4
And at 2012 Nationals http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCh_JFfcZ_o
In 2013, I didn't like it as much because of trouble she was having, but it was still pretty good.
I don't really remember any other exhibitions that stand out (Because I don't actually watch that many). Oh, Tessa and Scott at the 2010 Olympics and Moore-Towers and Moscovitch at the 2014 Olympics.
What did you thinks of MT/M's A Skater's Waltz?
Klimova & Ponomarenko's "Don Quixote" exhibition..1987 (Skate America?) It's a masterpiece.
Akiko's 'KA Love Dance' is seriously special. I watched her perform it live at the Dreams on Ice show in Yokohama and was totally speechless. Got chills during the step sequence.
Mirai's On Golden Pond was one of the best exhibitions at Nationals recently IMO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqG3UPgU7as
And I'd also like to throw Caroline Zhang's Lullaby For a Stormy Night here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9i4RpKDYqrg
