The press conference and the welcoming party that preceded the 2012 GrandSlam Finals in Shanghai, CHN, will go down in history. There might have been red carpets rolled out on other occasions for the couples to take a stroll in style, but never was the lane for multiple photo opportunities quite as long as this one.
And speaking of photographs: if there ever was a DanceSport event that was able to rally up as much public and media interest at one day out - remember, nobody dances until tomorrow - you tell us which one. WDSF Communications team member Dr Roland tried to capture the magnitude of the moment. We let you vote on who were the best dressed dancers tonight.
