I wonder what happened - its unusual for world champions to get beaten - something has to 'give'. 

Now the US has both pro latin and standard champions.  Is this the dawn of a new era or just a moment to savor?

Don't forget Ten-dance too.  Gherman and Iveta earned their title for sure, and are hopefully about to win for third time

Well, PDO has the distinct honor of having Riccardo and Yulia's coach as a member!  Maybe we should hear what changed directly from the horse's mouth?   Grin  I can tell you 'though, the changes are SO obvious watching them on last year's World Super Stars Dance Festival versus this year.  It's like night and day.  I wasn't surprised one bit with the "change of the guard" like QPO put it.   

Am happy for R&Y as well... and have so enjoyed seeing their dancing change over the last couple years, especially Yulia. Remarkable difference, IMO. Kudos to them. And to their coach. Smiley

So I've watched videos of the WDC Latin, and I still believe M&J should have won. lol. I strongly think they will take their crown back soon.  Smiley

I have watched in you tube and I felt that they danced well both couples but without seeing them together it is hard to say who was better. the final I saw only showed one at a time. I saw that Johanna kissed Ricardo, I wonder if that would have been seen to be interference?

Joanna is such a well balanced dancer, but I did like Yulia as well, she is so slim! I like  R & Y's jive.

Yes, the both couple danced very well, but I am always biased toward M&J. haha...... Saw that Joanna kissed Ricardo, and I was like 'What??'...... They both looked very funny. Joanna made this funny face, and Ricardo looked kind of shocked.
