Almost everyone who hears Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” instantly recognizes it as the theme song from the movie “Titantic.” Who can forget the iconic “I’m flying” scene, where Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet share their first kiss after perching like little lovebirds on the bow of the doomed ocean liner. Couples on cruise ships have been trying to re-create this romantic moment ever since! However, when the married couple in this video hit a huge slab of ice, they were nowhere near a sinking boat. But, they certainly made massive waves with their beautiful figure-skating routine!
Real-life partners Alexa Scimeca-Knierim and husband, Chris Knierim, didn’t need any movie magic to help them fly through this dazzling performance. Prior to their winning routine at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, Alexa and Chris made a different audience gasp in awe. Watch what happens when they weave the Celine Dion fan-favorite into their stunning choreography. The crowd fell silent the moment they heard the classic tune fill the arena. There’s a reason why the couple recently helped their U.S. figure-skating team snag the bronze medal – they know how to wow a crowd!
It certainly looks like love at first sight when Alexa and Chris snuggle up close to each other. As Celine’s soft lilt fills the air, the two glide like swans across the frozen floor. While Kate only pretends to fly in the movie, wait until you see Chris pick up his wife and flip her up into the air as if she were lighter than a feather! Even more amazing is how Alexa spins around a few times before she gently drops down into her husband’s arms. It takes a lot of talent and skill to pull that off! Check out the video below to see why Chris and Alexa’s sweet moves will make your heart go on.
