Evan Lysacek Talks 'DWTS' Finale

Filed under: InterviewsThe Stars (on Ice) aligned with Evan Lysacek last week. Not only did he advance to the season 10 finals (which start tonight at 8PM on ABC) of 'Dancing With the Stars,' but his touring schedule for Stars On Ice kept him in Southern California so he didn't have to hop any planes while learning four new routines.
Last Thursday, a contingent of 'DWTS' stars and dancers including Mark Ballas, Chelsie Hightower, Edyta Sliwinska, Alec Mazo, Louis van Amstel, Damian Whitewood and Buzz Aldrin turned out to see Lysacek perform in Stars on Ice at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
AOL TV caught up with the Olympic winning star at a post-show celebration at ESPN Zone @ L.A. Live where he shared his thoughts on skating, the 'DWTS' finale and his plans for the future.
What was it like performing with your 'DWTS' pals in the audience?
I was nervous. I wanted to do a good job for them. A lot of my cast mates came to see me. They've never seen me before live. A lot of production people from hair and makeup came to the show, too. They've given so much to Anna [Trebunskaya] and me this year. I wanted to give them a good show. I was glad so many people came.
More after the jump.
