While the concept got famous, ending up in a whole new show, the segment still remains a viable part of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy has already competed with stars like Lena Dunham, Tom Cruise, Emma Stone, Will Ferrell, Joseph Gordon Levitt and many more.
This week on the show, he invited the 45 years old actress/comedian Melissa McCarthy to face off in another lip sync battle. Jimmy advertised the show down as a battle no one would want to miss.
Melissa already warned the host the she was going to beat him badly at the game. However, Jimmy still took the challenge and April 4th became an epic day in Lip Sync Battle history.
Jimmy started of the performance because according to him, he had done it before. He chose to lip sync, 1971 song “Brand New Key” by Melanie with some fake key motions and roller blading where he took Melissa’s hands for support. It was a great performance.
Melissa then took out a cap, gave Jimmy a hand and threw the mic stand towards him. She then took a pose and started busting some moves while lip syncing, DMX’s song, “X Gonna Give it to You”. The performance involved some spanking action directed towards Jimmy as well.
In response, Jimmy broke out lip syncing Zayn Malik’s chart topping hit “Pillow Talk” which involved a pillow and some over dramatic zeal. He declared his love for Zayn at the end as Melissa made her way center stage and put on safety goggles for what was to come next.
She told Jimmy that she had terrible cataracts. She then told the crowd that she was going to close .with a song from Disney’s Pocahontas soundtrack, a song called “Colors of the Wind”.
The song started and we got to see why she needed the goggles. The song opened by revealing a forest background as she started lip syncing and as the song progressed, props and leaves and confetti, stuffed animals and water got thrown at her but she did not stop once.
By the end, her face was entirely covered by confetti and she had to take off her goggles to see that the crowd was giving her a standing ovation and Jimmy called her the boss.
She consequently won of course. Jimmy also tweeted her confetti covered face captioned "@melissamccarthy was MASTERFUL tonight with her lip sync battle. Just hilarious. #FallonTonight."
