They made a splash in Sochi and dished the dirt at the Oscars, and Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski will surely make their mark as they take on the Kentucky Derby.

Together they will talk about everything under the sun, “from twizzles to tres chic attire,” as the Olympic figure skaters-turned-TV personalities will cover the Derby for NBC, according to the official release.

“Johnny and Tara have an infectious energy that will bring a fun and fresh perspective to our Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks telecasts,” NBC Sports Group’s Rob Hyland said. “They will be in their element amid the big-event atmosphere and pageantry of Churchill Downs.”

The Kentucky Derby airs on Saturday, May 3, and the festivities began with Johnny and Tara at 4pm. They’ll also team up to cover the Kentucky Oaks the day before, starting at 3pm.
