Flamboyant figure skater Johnny Weir has been known to pull out all the stops when he competes on the ice, so why should it be any different when he takes to the stage for “Lip Sync Battle”?
That became crystal clear, thanks to the release of a sneak peek of Thursday’s episode, in which Weir competes against fellow figure skater Tara Lipinski.
Carrying a homemade fan fashioned to look like the Titanic, Weir lip-syncs to Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On”, using the fan to give his hair and white gown a dramatic wind-blown look during an unapologetically over-the-top take on the song.
How will Weir fare against Lipinski, who’ll be lip-syncing Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl”?
We’ll find out when “Lip Sync Battle” airs on Thursday, Feb. 8.
