In honor of the winter season, ABC is will be airing Paul Mitchell Shall We Dance on Ice this weekend with none other than Broadway's newest dancing queen Rumer Willis hosting alongside Kristi Yamaguchi.

Olympic gold medalists Meryl Davis, who is headlining the network special with Charlie White, explained in a recent interview with the Examiner that Shall We Dance on Ice will showcase a wide range of styles not always seen at official competitions:

"The show is a beautifully unique one which focuses on different styles of dance on the ice. It's quite different from other skating shows we've done and a pleasure to be a part of.

"The talent of the skaters and ballroom dancers coming together really makes for a fun event and some great energy!"

While there will be no shortage of world famous ice dancers on hand to entertain the crowd, J-14 happily reports that ABC has seen fit to bring in Jacob Whitesides for a bit live music as well:

"Jacob will be performing alongside world-renowned ice dancing champions Kim Navarro & Brent Bommentre and Penny Coomes & Nick Buckland."
