Figure skating is a pretty formal affair. We’re generally talking salchows to Tchaikovsky here, which is great and all, but what if these feats of insane twirling were set to more Top 40 fare?

Well, "WHAT IF" no more because the Internet has you covered with various remixes cropping up across the web—graceful routines paired with tunes ripped straight from your iPod.

 

Like American figure skaters Meryl Davis and Charlie White ice dancing to Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love”—a flawless piece of synchronized fierceness.

Cigars on ice, cigars on ice, y’all!

 

Or Evgeni Plushenko’s routine redubbed to Ginuwine’s “Pony.”

It’s actually from a 2006 competition where he originally skated to Tom Jones’ “Sex Bomb,” hence the flashy faux-muscles and spray-painted abs/machismo. But like “Pony” itself, it just never gets old.

 

Then there’s taking the routines and remixing them with quintessential staples from the ‘90s like “Two Princes.”

Spinning on ice plus Spin Doctors equals HELLO, WHERE’S THIS BEEN ALL OUR LIVES???

 

Because Barenaked Ladies always takes the routine to a whole other level.

 

Olympians slowing it down to Train…

 

…and Counting Crows is kind of amazing.

"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" writer Mike DiCenzo overlaid all of these and they’re our new obsession.

These are the first crop of ice skating remixes and we’re sure they won’t be the last. THANK GOD.
