Things got pretty heated on the ice in the ice dancing short program on Feb. 18. Not only did Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir bring their A game and earn the number one spot for the night, but France’s Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron reminded the whole world that they’re serious contenders for the gold medal.
They performed to Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” and the routine was as technically clean as it was painfully sexy. Gabriella and Guillaume move together in such synchronicity, we’re convinced they were born to skate together. OK, so we can’t ignore the fact that Gabriella suffered a wardrobe malfunction in the beginning of the program, which caused an unfortunate dress slip, but the pair handled the whole thing with grace and style.
You can see the full “Shape of You” routine above (sans wardrobe malfunction), which was performed at the 2018 European Championships. Gabriella and Guillaume know how to have fun and dance their hearts out while also keeping a technically flawless routine. Tune in to NBC on Feb. 19 to watch them go head to head with Tessa and Scott for the gold medal!
