Team USA’s “Shib Sibs” brought some paradise to the Olympics free dance skating competition.

In their first competitive appearance at the 2018 Games, siblings Maia and Alex Shibutani finished a strong second in the short dance program Sunday night as they skated to Coldplay's "Paradise.” 

Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones loved the performance (see her tweet below) and so did the judges. 


Man me and brother would have killed each other!! Hell to the naw!! @Olympics @NBCOlympics

The “Shib Sibs’” effort helped the U.S. team to the bronze medal position in the team event behind leader Canada and second-placed Russia.

Coldplay has been a popular choice on the ice at these winter games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. U.S. skating Adam Rippon made his debut Sunday (Feb. 11) with a performance that featured Coldplay’s “O” from 2014’s Ghost Stories.
