On Ice Perspectives has uploaded a video of Team USA ice dancers Oona and Gage Brown performing their free dance routine to the sounds of METALLICA's "Nothing Else Matters". The clip was filmed at 6:45 in the morning over the Thanksgiving holiday and features a medley of the original version of the song plus covers by Australian singer Marlisa Punzalan and the Colombian post-punk group LOS ÚLTIMOS ROMÁNTICOS.
Ice dancing became a medal sport at the 1976 Winter Olympic Games.
Unlike figure skating, which allows both pairs and soloists in competition, ice dancing is for couples only.
The original version of "Nothing Else Matters" was released as the fourth single from METALLICA's fifth, self-titled album, which came out in 1991. The song reached position No. 11 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart as well as top-ten positions on many European charts.
"Nothing Else Matters" was featured as a playable track in the music video game "Guitar Hero: Metallica" and has been covered over 40 times by a host of different artists, including STAIND, Shakira, Bif Naked, Macy Gray, DIE KRUPPS, REV THEORY and APOCALYPTICA.
