Move aside, "Disney on Ice" -- skating fans are calling for something a little less G-rated, thanks to Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.

During the team figure skating event in the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, the veteran ice dancers helped snag a gold medal for Canada, in part with their moving performance to songs from the "Moulin Rouge" soundtrack during the Feb. 12 free skate. By the time they were done, even the film's director, Baz Luhrmann, was singing their praises. He gave them a special shout-out in a tweet ahead of the Olympics that celebrated how many skaters are using the musical's soundtrack. After team event, the filmmaker congratulated Virtue and Moir on their latest medal, adding, "Looking forward to cheering you on in the individual competition."

Many fans were equally impressed and started calling for "Moulin Rouge" to be adapted for an ice show, ideally with Virtue and Moir in the lead roles.

Other fans just couldn't get over how hot the routine was, not to mention their disbelief that the two skaters are not dating in real life.

It's fair to wonder. Just look at their "Moulin Rouge" performance from the 2018 Canadian nationals. It really plays up the romance, and there is a lift that Virtue understandably described as "suggestive" -- one they ultimately toned down ahead of PyeongChang, as the Toronto Star reported.

Even with the lift modified, Virtue and Moir left fans wanting more "Moulin Rouge." Fortunately, the duo are skating their routine again -- not to mention their short program -- during the individual event, which begins the morning of Feb. 19 (Feb. 18 in North America).

The skaters previously won the ice dance event in Vancouver in 2010 and then took silver during the 2014 Sochi Olympics. PyeongChang is likely to be their final Olympics, and therefore the individual event will probably be their last chance to add to their gold medal collection. Once they're done competing, maybe then they will make fans' "Moulin Rouge on Ice" dreams come true.
