The Olympian and avid Aguilera fan was not a fan of their "Candyman" routine. 

Russian figure skaters Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov failed to impress Olympic figure skater, NBC commentator, and professional sass queen Johnny Weir with their routine to Christina Aguilera's 2007 hit "Candyman." Weir, being both an Olympian and avid Aguilera fan-- even wearing a necklace with a "D" on it in honor of her song "Dirrty"-- was especially hard to impress.

"Nobody loves Christina Aguilera more than I do," Weir said. "But this pair is a little square to be giving us 'Candyman' realness." On top of failing to give "realness," the pair failed to execute several moves, and as a result, did not win a medal. Their garish black-and-yellow polka-dotted outfits also drew criticism: "When you go to the Oscars, you wear Oscar de la Renta," fellow commentator and Olympic skater Tara Lipsinki said. "Not a party dress."
