Evan Skates before DWTS Cast
Here is a nice article about Evan's recent SOI performance in LA in front of several of the DWTS cast members and pro dancers.
"Professional dancer Chelsie Hightower sang Evan’s praises afterwards."
“He was amazing,” Chelsie told In Touch after the show. “I was freaking out and wanted to jump out of my seat!”
Good luck tonight to Evan. Any predictions on who will win the coveted Mirror Ball trophy?
I admire people who do quads as much as any of the rest of you, but you have to say something for a guy who gives every ounce of his strength to the task at hand. Clearly, Lysacek doesn't skimp on anything he signs on for! No wonder Frank Carroll thinks so highly of him.
That kind of work ethic will get my admiration every time. Who was it who said that genius is two percent inspiration and 98 percent perspiration? (I think it's attributed to Thomas Edison, but I'm not sure.) Lysacek earned every carat of his Olympic gold medal—he certainly didn't achieve it on star power or reputation.
Another nice aspect to this report: Notice that Mark Ballas choreographed his skating number. I really like this cross-pollination of skating and dancing. It will add to skating's luster, and I'm sure that it will cause a certain crossover of fans from the hugely popular dance show. Now if only TV executives get a clue and schedule a skating show to capitalize on this...and not one hustled off to Sunday afternoon, either.
Figure Skating Is A Dangerous Sport
