Ashley Wagner was shocked by her score.

American skater Ashley Wagner is responsible for the most rewatched moment during NBC’s Saturday night coverage of the Winter Olympics from Sochi.

TiVo Research said Sunday that viewers stopped and rewound their digital video recorders to see Wagner looking up at the scoreboard after skating to Pink Floyd more than at any other point of the broadcast.

The second most rewatched moment also came during figure skating.

People wanted to see Russia’s Julia Lipnitskaia spin that ended with one leg held vertically over her head.

Men’s slopestyle accounted for the other three of the top five rewatched moments.

TiVo bases its data from a sample of its 350,000 households with the service.
