Army of Badassery. In a Corset.

Screencap of Johnny on the Today Show this morning, 
just before his performance to Christina Aguilera's 
"Army of Me." New slate-colored hair by Eric Alt!

So Johnny performed on the rink at Rockefeller Center this morning for the Today Show, running on very little sleep after being awake since 1 a.m. due to the "'End of the World' rainstorm," and skating on a surface that he politely termed a "lake," with new dramatic hair by Eric Alt and clad in his gorgeous but not at all warm garter leggings by @SenaNYC, with bonus corset.

And being the consummate professional that he is....

...he was, of course, absolutely amazeballs.

As evidenced, per usual, by the outpouring of Twitter love for him immediately after his performance. And because it was only shown live on the East Coast, the love came in waves as his segment rolled across the country and hit each time zone. It's still happening as of this writing.

A few of my favorites:

So glad all the hysteria over the Mayans was wrong. At least thus far. And if it is the end of the world today, I'm good. Cuz this was an awesome way to go out.

(But if it's not? More more more please! Need an entire ice show starring Johnny being Johnny. Corsets optional. Flawless fierceness guaranteed.)

Screencaps—such as they are—from the video below. Thank you, littlehoarse, for always coming to our rescue with video NOW!!

Johnny in a pre-performance glimpse, 
dancing with his umbrella 
in fabulous duvet coat.

I couldn't help but notice that the interviewer 
has to keep looking at her notes quite intently, 
and can't remember the name of the "cooking 
that he's in starting January 6. 
I imagine it might be a tad difficult to concentrate 
with that much fierceness standing next to you.

Video!! Thank you again, littlehoarse!!

Johnny Weir with his fluffy new coat now edges Josh King in the competition for the Michelin Man-Campfire Marshmallow Award.

The slate hairdo looks ethereal and like what one would picture Jack Frost to look like. Bravo to Eric Alt for his skill and Johnny for his daring!

Misfit Mimes, hope you get your rest in soon. Always above and beyond the call of duty...and we appreciate it.
