For those of you who may not watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, you might not get what this whole lip-syncing craziness is all about. Basically, when Jimmy Fallon isn’t interviewing someone, he’s participating in some outrageously funny segments with other featured celebrities. Some of these segments include “Ew!” or the segment in question, “Lip Sync Battle.”
The “Lip Sync Battle” receives millions upon millions of views on YouTube and has become so popular that it has earned itself an actual show on Spike. On top of that, Chrissy Teigen and LL Cool J have climbed aboard as the show’s commentator and host, respectively.
If Lip Sync Battle is anything like its predecessor, we can expect more hilarious shenanigans and maybe even higher viewing rates for the show. The trailer itself is promising, and we get to see John Krasinski, Anna Kendrick and Stephen Merchant among many other celebrities make absolute fools of themselves in order to secure themselves a place as one of the greatest lip-syncers of all time.
Here’s hoping that Paul Rudd makes a comeback. He nailed Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” in the past, now all I ask is that he shows his fabulous face again at some point during the show’s running. It simply won’t be complete without him.
