Davis and White

Meryl Davis And Charlie White, Vancouver Olympics 2010 (Original Dance)

Aw, remember Original Dance? For its last Olympic hurrah, Meryl and Charlie gave us what to this day may be the only Bollywood-inspired program that doesn’t heavily utilize Jai frickin’ Ho. (Not that there’s anything wrong with Jai Ho, I’m just tired of it and would like to hear more catchy songs from actual Bollywood musicals)

ANYWAY. These costumes were and are solid. They didn’t just do their idea of Indian dance, they did their research and it shows. Even the fabrics are right!

I love those colors on Meryl, and seriously Charlie just went completely authentic, pretty much. Both creative and respectful, and all-around fabulous.

Grade: A+

“‪It makes me hopeful to see the general (non-skating!) public’s positive comments about the Shibs’ short dance at U.S. Nationals. I didn’t see a single comment about how their music wasn’t right or eww a sibling team. Most people (both young AND old) seemed overwhelmingly positive, amazed, and inspired. Many really liked the combination of Jay-Z and Sinatra! I am hoping this bodes well for our American ice dance teams in Pyeongchang. They’re been overlooked for so long even after D/W’s win!”

In honor of the two year anniversary of the Season 18 finale of Dancing with the Stars, I wanted to post a few pictures from my favorite moment of the finale and really the entire season! 

THIS was perfection! The last photo has always been my favorite! You could just tell that Meryl and Charlie were happy to be back where they belonged with each other as partners!
