The long awaited (by us fans of Johnny Weir course!) premiere of 'Skating With the Stars' was this past Monday November 22nd. The official website for the show has information on all six of the professional skaters, plus the six celebrities, the hosts and the three judges; as well as recaps of each episode, music the teams skated to, scores the teams received, and videos of the skaters practicing on each of their team pages.
Below you will find links to photos, videos, skater bios, star bios, twitter accounts, information on voting and a Blog from my friend Misfit Mimes about Week One of 'Skating With the Stars'.

Johnny Weir performed his 'Poker Face' program with a new costume and slightly different choreography during the show. Due partly to the small size of the show's ice rink he skated a shorter version of the program and modified the choreography in accordance.
