Yes, I realize they’re already taking Rio de Janeiro by storm and have in fact been doing so for several days now, but ICYMI: here’s what Johnny and Tara were up to over the weekend before jetting off to their mystery mission in sunny Brazil. Now UPDATED below with the full broadcast video of their commentary on Euros!
SATURDAY: US NATIONALS GALA
Screencaps from their opening segment. I loved this, and you’ll see why in the video below.
The opening and closing segments of the gala.
The best part, beginning at about 0:51:
Terry: Hi, everybody! Glad you’re with us. Terry Gannon along with Johnny Weir, Tara Lipinski. Thank goodness—I almost wore that same outfit tonight, John. Would have been disastrous. [They all crack up.]
Johnny: Oh, you have a leopard-print smock on ya?
Terry: You’re looking sharp.
And the full broadcast!

Work? Werk! Had so much fun commentating Europeans today. Catch it tomorrow afternoon on @nbcsports! by @taraandjohnny
Screencaps with bonus Tanith White, subbing for Terry who was apparently doing something else which we should really put a stop to ASAP. My apologies for the slightly less than stellar quality of these. Dear NBC Chicago, please never ever let your livestream crap out when I am in the midst of screencapping Johnny.
Describing how Elena Radionova skates with “such passion and heart.”
