Canada’s popular pair Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir had a hit on their hands with a routine that opened with The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil” and segued into an acoustic version of the Eagles’ “Hotel California” and then Santana’s “Oye Como Va.”
Their spicy performance propelled them to a score of 83.67, breaking the world record they set themselves. Make no mistake: Virtue and Moir are the team to beat.
