Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada compete in the Figure Skating Team Event Ice Dance Free Dance on day three of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Gangneung Ice Arena on Feb. 12, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea.

Canadian skaters Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir brought some fire to the ice at the Winter Olympics with their eye-catching Moulin Rouge routine, featuring a version of the Police's “Roxanne.”

Baz Luhrmann, the Aussie director behind the 2001 feature film, paid tribute to Virtue and Moir’s unbeatable performance Sunday night (Feb. 11).

“Moulin Rouge on ice! It’s moving to see so many champions skating their way to Pyeongchang 2018 to the music from Moulin Rouge, including Team Canada's Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir,” he tweeted.

With a score of 118.10, Virtue and Moir won the ice dance segment of the event and played a huge role in helping their nation take team figure skating gold.

Apparently their ultra-sexy routine was toned down for the Olympic rink. But it was still hot enough to impress the judges.
