Figure Skating Duo Gives Viral Performance To 'Sound Of Silence'

Figure skating duo Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres perform a winning routine to ‘The Sound Of Silence.’


Figure Skating is hands down one of the most elegant and mesmerizing sport. And Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres are two of the most talented competitive figure skaters in the world.

In fact, they presented one of the most amazing pair skating performances for the International Skating Union’s World Team Trophy 2017 competition in Tokyo, Japan. They won first place and after watching their performance, you will understand exactly why!

Just watch as they glide around the ice to the iconic Simon & Garfunkel tune ‘The Sound Of Silence.’

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence”

From the moment the very first note started, the audience knew that they were in for a real treat. This duo definitely chose the perfect song.

The choreography was filled with flawless leaps, twirls, and tosses and we all know that it takes a special skill to be able to dance and glide on ice the way Vanessa and Morgan did so effortlessly.
You can tell that the audience is in complete awe.

There are moments in their choreography where the movements are in perfect unison and I am beyond impressed with this performance. Now wonder this routine is being seen all over the Internet. This performance was absolutely glorious and definitely one you will never forget.
