Pure Sweetness~

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir were at a Chapters and Indigo in Toronto to launch their book. A reliable source has said the following about the event:

  • The first question from the audience for Tessa and Scott was from an adorable little kid: “How did you feel when you won the Olympics?” Awww…
  • An audience member asked if they would still use “I Want to Hold Your Hand” exhibition program for the rest of the season. They gave an affirmative answer.
  • Apparently Tessa and Scott used a version of “I Want to Hold Your Hand” with female vocals because this time, the girl is chasing the guy and not the other way around.
  • Steve Milton, the person who actually wrote the book from interviewing Tessa and Scott got Tessa to admit that she asked Scott if she could hold his hand when they were on the Olympic podium.
  • Answer to a fan question: Scott’s favourite program is Mahler’s 5th Symphony while Tessa’s is Valse Triste
  • Tessa and Scott did some ballroom to prepare themselves for the rhumba/samba FD. It was apparently hard for them to transfer the dance on the ice, as expected.
  • They signed a whole bunch of books. Yay!

I bought a copy of the book. Here are a few lovely excerpts (no copyright infringement intended, Tessa and Scott’s book don’t belong to me and I’m not making any money off of this):

Neither the eight-year-old nor the ten-year-old had any clue from that first shaky foray that they were headed for a full-time partnership. In fact Tessa, who had been partnered for a few instructional dances with Scott’s older brother had written in her grade one notebook that her dream was to go to the Olympics “with DANNY Moir.”

As he grew older, Scott would also partner other dancers through the various levels of testing. In either situation, her inner reaction was the same. “Every time, I’d say to myself, ‘Okay Tessa, come back.’ I hated to skate with anyone else but Tess.”
