Dressed in a skin-tight backless red dress with a glamorous high jewelled neck, Virtue played the role of Nicole Kidman. And they keep coming back for more.
Fans at the Gangneung Ice Arena roared during Virtue and Moir's steamy skate to music from "Moulin Rouge" and the Canadians were all smiles as they took what will likely be the last bows of their career. They had wanted to skate to it ever since.
But she said she was "relieved" after pulling out of the downhill so she could concentrate on the combined.
France took victory in the mixed relay biathlon, with Martin Fourcade starring en route to his fifth Olympic gold medal.
Moir and Virtue won a gold medal on Tuesday. The Canadians also have two silvers.
The unflappable Virtue and Moir answered the challenge with 4 minutes to last a lifetime, a program certain to go down in Olympic history.
Virtue and Moir worked with another pair of well-known coaches, Igor Shpilband and Marina Zueva, at their facility in MI before a brief retirement.
Moir was asked about their contribution to the sport, and was modest in response. Not yet clear is whether there will be any resolution to a Russian doping case involving a curler that could jeopardize the country's chances of marching under its own flag in the closing ceremony.

Moir and Virtue chose to take a break. "But we did our best and we have nothing to regret", said Papadakis.
But we've known that ability around here for a long time - 20-plus years, really. Not that they knew what they needed.
The on-the-ice passion isn't uncommon for skating partners, though.
Moir and Virtue nabbed first with a world-record score of 83.67.
"I wish I could have that moment back", they told reporters afterward. For example, on the Today Show the couple denied to being just that, a couple, although they've been skating partners for over 20 years. "We still really enjoy skating together and I think that's why we still are". Who can say that? They received an automatic two point deduction for the fall and zero points for the element, which had scored up to 6.89 points at events earlier in the season. But in the end, the margin was not big enough to eclipse the Canadians world-record breaking combined score.
"It was silent because everyone is so anxious, there is always that anxiety that something could happen because it's beyond your control", said Harvey, who actually coach Moir during his minor hockey playing days.
"At the end (though), of course", she added.
At their elite rink in Montreal, the Canadian and French rivals would skate alongside one another for five hours a day, giving them plenty of time to learn each other's strengths and weaknesses.
"We are so grateful to our team for having prepared us for this".
Here's an adorable clip of the two skating together when they were kids! Virtue has her own jewelry collection with Canadian company Hillberg & Berk. They were seventh after the short program.
