The world will never be the same after Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir's stellar performances this year in the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Their "Hotel California" short program and free skate to a Moulin Rouge medley not only captured the hearts of pretty much every human being on the planet, but also won them a gold medal.
It's speculated that Tessa and Scott may be retiring after these Olympics (we're not crying, you're crying), but there's one more performance in Pyeongchang you can watch before this becomes a reality. They'll be performing on Saturday evening at the figure skating gala, and they're skating to "Long Time Running" by the Tragically Hip. Lead singer Gord Downie died last October, and this performance will be Tessa and Scott's tribute to Gord.
If you simply can't wait to see this performance, which is sure to be oozing with
sexual tension grace and technicality, let's take a stroll down memory lane. In the 2014 Sochi Olympics, they performed a wildly intimate routine at the gala that was set to Rihanna's "Stay." Just to give you some context for how painfully sensual and wholly heartfelt the performance was, they started the whole thing by virtually lying on top of each other on the ice. It doesn't get any hotter than that.
How there is still ice left in that arena after such a steamy performance is beyond us. Watch the full routine above, which is from the TEB Gala in 2013, and just try not to get goosebumps, shed a tear, or scream to the heavens, "So are they dating or what?!" Tune in to NBC on Saturday night to watch the figure skating gala.
