Improv -Ice

Four top male and four top female skaters will come together to perform two numbers selected at random the day of the show which must be choreographed in a matter of hours with no coach or choreographer. Of the two numbers selected by each skater, one will be performed live by the band, Styx.

Viewers voted for which skater they think improvised best online following the telecast.
