What to Expect at the Olympics Closing Ceremony, Hosted by Johnny Weir, Tara Lipinski, & Terry Gannon on NBC

People: The 2018 Winter Olympics are coming to an end, and just like the spectacular event that opened the Games on February 9, South Korea is expected to put on one last breathtaking show for the closing ceremony.

The nation is expected to throw a gigantic bash in Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium on Sunday that celebrates their art and culture. Viewers will be able to tune in to the NBC Sports website or catch it on the NBC Sports app at 6 a.m. ET and 3 a.m. PT.

For those not eager to get up quite that early, don’t fret: NBC will broadcast the closing ceremony on Sunday night, and recently announced that celebrated figure skating commentators Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir will host, alongside their significantly less sparkly skating co-host Terry Gannon.

“It’s such an honor,” Weir said Wednesday evening when the announcement was made during primetime skating.

Gannon, meanwhile, delivered a cheekier response.

“I’m honored and excited to be hosting the closing ceremony with my reserved, understated broadcast partners Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir,” he said, before adding that the group is “looking forward to a fitting farewell at the end of a truly memorable experience in PyeongChang.”

VIDEO — Inside Tara Lipinski & Johnny Weir’s Rise from Olympic Figure Skaters to Beloved Commentators

Time: Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir were bonding over their Céline bags while sitting outside of the NBC studios in Stamford, Connecticut, in 2013 when they had an idea.

What if, they thought, they analyzed figure skating on camera at the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi together?

Before that point, the two former Olympic figure skating stars had been preparing to commentate on the men’s and women’s events at the Games separately, both alongside NBC Sports’s Terry Gannon. But Lipinski and Weir realized their chemistry could amount to something incredible.

“We went to NBC, and they probably thought we were crazy,” Lipinski told TIME over the phone as she prepped for that day’s broadcast of the ladies’ figure skating finals at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. After a trial run, NBC agreed — and the broadcast team of Lipinski and Weir was born.

“It’s so rare and unique,” Lipinski said of her relationship with Weir. “It was sort of meant to be.”

At Sochi, Lipinski and Weir’s figure skating commentating made them the break-out stars of the Games despite not competing on the ice themselves. The duo coordinated outfits — with lace ensembles for the ladies’s event and emerald green for ice dancing — and started a joint Instagram account to chronicle their journey in Sochi and beyond.

Their broadcasting success only grew from there, with gigs for NBC outside of their expertise of figure skating at the Super Bowl, the National Dog Show, the Academy Awards and the Kentucky Derby. And at the 2018 Games in PyeongChang, Lipinski and Weir joined NBC’s primetime team, alongside Gannon, and will host the upcoming Closing Ceremonies.

(When they were told they would host the Closing Ceremonies, Lipinski asked three different times, “Are you sure? Is this real?”)

Johnny Weir Takes Us Through His Snail Mucin and Egg Yolk-Filled K-Beauty Obsession

Elle: While in South Korea as a primetime NBC figure skating analyst for the 2018 Winter Games, Olympian Johnny Weir has posted tons of face-mask selfies and beauty snaps to his fleeting Instagram story. Every night, it seems, he’s experimenting with new SoKo products that leave his skin looking fresh after a long day in the broadcast booth alongside BFF and fellow commentator Tara Lipinski.

With the women’s individual skating events in full swing, Weir’s hours can get long and tiring (plus, he gets hair and make-up done everyday!), so a solid beauty routine is vital. ELLE.com caught up with the two-time Olympian in PyeongChang to get the inside scoop on maintaining moisturized, glowing skin in the Korean winter with his favorite local beauty products.
