Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski Will Host the Olympic Closing Ceremony

Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski Will Host the Olympic Closing Ceremony

Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski's presence at PyeongChang has been one of the gayest highlights of the Olympics — not quite Gus Kenworthy and Adam Rippon level, but needed and appreciated nonetheless. Weir especially has been a pinch hitter (that's a sports term, apparently) in his dramatic, over-the-top looks as he and Lipinski provide commentary for the figure skating, serving Hunger Games, Caesar Flickerman realness.

The duo announced Wednesday that they would be continuing their catty coverage — during the pairs competition Weir called a Russian duo "too square" to do Christina Aquilera justice — by hosting the Olympics closing ceremony, joined by Terry Gannon. The performers better come correct, because Lipinski and Weir have no problem spilling the tea.

 

What might Weir wear for such a moment? If his Olympic wardrobe so far is any indication, it'll be something fabulous.
