Most recently, Kurt received the first-ever Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Skating Union. His energy and talent are welcomed by his fans, and embraced by his fellow skaters. An absolute craftsman on skates, Kurt's natural humor and rapport with the audience will always be an obvious highlight of his performance.

For five seasons, Kurt has been a part of the popular CBC reality series Battle of the Blades. He has enjoyed his time on the show as a judge and a performer, as well as a co-host working with Ron MacLean. He has provided color commentary for figure skating competitions on NBC and ABC, and is currently working for CBC. Kurt is looking forward to his 29th year with Stars on Ice.
Thanks for the magic! I was on the ice, close to the skaters, I almost felt like being with them on the ice, I really appreciated.

We will definitely be back! The show was great as it had our favorite skaters, loved the cast, meet and greet was very well organized.

Great time! Lots of fun, great atmosphere, skaters do a great job of entertaining.

This year's Stars On Ice was nicely done.

Stars on Ice delivered an entertaining night of ice skating. They did a nice mix of single skaters and group numbers including several holiday oriented numbers. I would recommend this show to anyone who enjoys ice skating.

It was amazing! I recommend that everyone should see this at least once.
Stars On Ice was at the HEB Center and continues across the United States with the last stop at the Amsoil Arena in Duluth, Minnesota on December 19, 2021.
