June 30th, 2020

When it comes to sports, people have their favorite. Some individuals love football while others are more into gymnastics. But the one sport that everyone enjoys is ice dancing. After all, this isn’t just ordinary ice-skating. It involves one or two people who dance to music while on the ice.

And once in a while, someone uploads a performance online that’s so stunningly beautiful, it seems surreal. Whether you skate or not, these are videos that leave you feeling mesmerized.

Heading toward greatness

A perfect example is a video that features Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. Interestingly, it was uploaded in October 2017. But just the following year, this duo would become Olympic champions. So, you can imagine how special it is. To date, this particular video has been viewed more than 3.3 million times.

Song of choice

For ice skating couples, not only do they need to have talent but it’s also critical for them to choose the right song when performing. And this pair did when they selected Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect.” Just the first two lines give you a good indication that it’s all about love, “I found a love for me. Darling, just dive right in.”

A match made in Heaven

Virtue and Moir have skated together for over 22 years. With that history, they know how each other moves on the ice and what the other person is thinking. When competing, this gives them a huge advantage. With such a strong connection, they don’t have to second guess anything.

Are they, or aren’t they?

Due to the chemistry between Virtue and Moir, rumors have circulated for years that perhaps their connection extends beyond the ice. And in watching this performance, it certainly appears it’s true. But for now…mum’s the word.

Teasing the audience

The next lines of the song “Perfect” certainly don’t help clarify their relationship. “Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet. I never knew you were the someone waiting for me. ‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love.” The glances and smiles they give each other during the performance only heighten speculation.

That nagging question

Sure, these two have ice danced together for over two decades but it appears there’s something else going on. You can even see a few times where Moir gently plants a kiss on Virtue. Some people think it’s all an act that goes with this performance. But others disagree.
