Meryl Davis and Charlie White of Team USA did it again during their flawless short dance program. They broke the world record by receiving the highest score Sunday night -- 78.89. This puts them ahead of Canada’s Virtue/Moir by 2.56 points.

Once again they skated to music from stage and film’s “My Fair Lady” on the NBC primetime telecast. One of the songs from the musical is appropriately “I Could Have Danced All Night.”

Derek Hough of “Dancing with the Stars” fame choreographed their splendid routine, according to the incessant skating commentary. Hough is one of the professional dancers on the reality TV competition series.

Opening up the broadcast were various highlighted performances from two other American ice dancing couples.

The brother and sister team of Maia and Alex Shibutani, at 9th place, are tapped to take over Davis/White when they retire after the Olympics. Another impressive couple from Team USA is Evan Chock and Madison Bates, who stand at 8th place.
