JUST UPLOADED: Johnny’s performances from the Amazing on Ice livestream, including his stunning pairs program with Zhang Hao! Full coverage of the show in photos and video coming soon, but for now, please enjoy this gallery from Getty Images.
Johnny posted this photo from the performance on his Weibo with these beautiful words: “No matter where we go in this life, the most important thing is to take love with you, whatever love may look like to you.”
Very special thanks to the fabulous Joveta Leo for so many exclusive pics below from the press conference and rehearsals! These are mostly pleasingly huuuuuge, so please do click any photo to enjoy the full-size image. Sources are as watermarked unless otherwise noted.
PRESS CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS
By which I mean all the Johnny parts, of course.
I do not know why he and Stéphane are eyeing Adelina Sotnikova this way . . .
. . . or what is going on here . . .
. . . but I love all of it.
Johnny offers some details about the special Chinese-themed program he prepared with Zhang Hao. Video of his remarks below!
And now we come to the annual Rolling Ball of Sparkle portion of our press conference . . .
. . . in which Johnny & Stéphane proceed to crack up . . .
. . . a lot.
Johnny’s part of the Amazing on Ice press conference. Special thanks to Joveta for the footage!
He notes that he’s very concerned about doing the program well since his summer has been so busy and he’s not had a lot of preparation time. Pretty sure he needn’t have worried.
All of these are gorgeous. Thank you so much, Joveta!
At Capital Indoor Stadium in Beijing.
As with any show rehearsal, there’s always a fair amount of just standing/skating around . . .
. . . occasionally broken up by having what is clearly a very serious conversation with Maxim Trankov . . .
. . . and then more standing around . . .
. . . in between the moments of very focused practice. Here Johnny works with his much-adored pairs partner, Zhang Hao, on their special piece . . .
. . . and here he’s with his also much-adored partner-in-crime, Stéphane.
And here’s just Johnny, running through his Beyoncé program and generally being, yes, completely amazing on ice . . .
Please enjoy Johnny & Evgeni Plushenko answering questions and being awesome during the Amazing on Ice Weibo Q&A Friday morning. More from the Q&A coming up!
