Who Are the Olympics Figure Skating Commentators?

You Should Recognize the Figure Skating Commentators — They ARE Former Olympians

A post shared by TARA & JOHNNY (@taraandjohnny) on

The figure skating commentators at this year's Winter Olympics at Pyeongchang, South Korea, are best friends (and former Olympians) Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir. Both figure skaters have competed for the gold in the past. Tara won a gold medal at the 1998 Olympics in Japan, while Johnny famously paid homage to his idol in his 2010 routine to Lady Gaga's "Poker Face." Though neither are performing this year, their sassy rinkside commentary has already been a much-discussed highlight of the Olympic Games.

Their long friendship is well-documented (and quite evident when watching their banter live); they even share a joint Instagram account (@taraandjohnny). Their witty rapport has been well-honed over the years, as the fabulous duo have done everything from attending the Kentucky Derby to visiting the White House together. Johnny was even a bridesman in Tara's wedding last year to Fox Sports producer Todd Kapostasy. To watch these best friends in action, tune in to their live coverage in Pyeongchang. The Winter Olympics air live on NBC beginning Feb. 8.
