After getting a positive response to a routine that included some Justin Timberlake, U.S. ice dance champions Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto announced that they’d like to take it one step further and use hip-hop in their routines.

"Hip-Hop is a huge part of (American) culture," added Agosto. "We’d love to tap into it."
