Figure Skating World Championships: Belbin and Agosto win the Original Dance, Trail by Less than 1 Point

Evan Lysacek may have won the mens title, but during the Original Dance, it was his girlfriend Tanith Belbin and her partner Benjamin Agosto who brought down the house. Belbin and Agosto, who skated to “Stepping Out” by Liza Minnelli, are attempting to become the first American team to win a world championship title. Belbin and Agosto won the Original Dance and they, consequently, closed the gap between themselves and the Russian team of Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin from 1.12 points to just 0.64 points.

The free dance will take place later tonight.

Leaderboard: After the Original Dance
1) Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin–105.45 (RUS)
2) Tanith Belbin and Benjamin Agosto–104.81 (USA)
3) Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir–100.42 (CAN)
4) Meryl Davis and Charlie White–100.33 (USA)
