Kings on Ice Megapost: ‘Johnny Was Beautiful All the Way Through’

Oh hai. Weren’t we just here ooohing and ahhhing over Johnny’s Creep and Beyoncé programs from Art2Skate? Why yes. Yes, we were. And here we are again, because he’s a very busy and hardworking man, and now we have a plethora of pics and videos from Kings on Ice, which is a thing that happened over the weekend in Sofia, Bulgaria, and from which we are quite fortunate to have 60+ exclusive photos courtesy of the lovely Elena Vasileva, whose favorite spot in the world is maybe not Sofia, Bulgaria, unless Johnny happens to be there, for whom we do all kinds of things we would not otherwise do, including watching random sports things we would normally avoid like the plague, and traveling to Sofia, Bulgaria.

Speaking of watching sporty things: in honor of the Summer Games being just 100 days away, Johnny and Tara will be on NBC TONIGHT, 7 pm ET, in 100 Days to Rio, a special featuring footage from their trip to Carnival back in February! Here’s a preview:

UPDATE! NEW video clip!

NBC provided this handy chart of broadcast times around the country for the special, with bonus super-squeezy photo of Johnny and Tara:

In addition, there’s new fun stuff to watch on the blog! Both the Beauty Live megapost and the Art2Skate Beyoncé post have been updated with NEW video from Dallas and Delaware, so please be sure to check those out if you haven’t seen them yet.

OK! Here’s an insane amount of coverage from KOI to keep us occupied until Johnny appears on our TVs tonight. Which is exactly how I like my Wednesdays: all Johnny, all day long.
