10 Best Celebrity Lip Sync Battles
Jimmy Fallon popularized the format of the infamous celebrity lip sync battle on The Tonight Show, and Spike’s series has taken the pop culture world by storm! It turns out that we love to see our favorite celebrities acting goofy while sporting their silent singing talents! The series was co-created by our man John Krasinski, who along with his gorgeous wife, Emily Blunt, have truly mastered the performance art of the lip sync! This list takes a look back at some of the best celebrity lip sync battles to date and our caps are off to the founders of these epic battles!
10. John Krasinski vs. Anna Kendrick
We all love Anna Kendrick and we’d always naturally root for her versus anyone, but when John Krasincki took the stage first and rocked “Proud Mary” in full Tina Turner glam, we couldn’t help but think he had a leg to stand on against Kendrick. That was of course until she came out on stage rocking all the appropriate dance moves to sing “Booty!” The cameo appearance of Jennifer Lopez didn’t hurt either! All of the factors combined, John in a dress, Kendrick shaking her ‘thang,’ and JLo as a guest star, made this one of the most hilarious battles to enjoy!
9. Jimmy Fallon vs. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
We love to smell what The Rock is cooking, and when he’s busting Taylor “Tay-Tay” Swift, what could be better? This was also the inaugural battle and The Rock’s endearing performance of “Shake it Off,” including that adorable little giggle, created fans across the nation. When Fallon followed him up and sang the classic Harry Belafonte song “Jump in the Line” by leading a conga line through the audience, we were officially hooked! Our winner was obviously Mr. Johnson, but the comic banter between these two was priceless and we’d pay good money to see them face off again any day!
