Chrissy Teigen broke her foot during a lip sync battle. That’s one of those sentences you might want to go back and read again. Go ahead. We’ll wait.
The model and wife of recent Golden Globe-winning musician John Legend has managed to make it through working on Deal or No Deal, gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, and appearing in music video for her hubby without suffering an injury. But trying to lip sync has reportedly strained the limits of Chrissy Teigen’s safety.
Chrissy Teigen posted a pic of herself in a black dress, in a hospital bed to Instagram.
“Then I cracked a foot bone,” Chrissy Teigen captioned the pic. “I regret nothing.”
Apparently Chrissy Teigen was actually filming for Spike TV’s new series Lip Sync Battle. Rolling Stone Magazine reported that LL Cool J had been recruited to host the new Spike show, which is based on a popular skit on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show.
“Like the rest of the world, I’m a big fan of these battles, but this show is going to bring it to a whole new level,” LL Cool J said in a press release. “I’m thrilled to be working with Jimmy Fallon, John Krasinski, Stephen Merchant and the entire team to host the show and can’t wait for the fans at home to join in!”
If those names sound familiar, they should. Jimmy Fallon is well-known to Americans. John Krasinski is best known for his role in the U.S. version of The Office as Jim Halpert. And Stephen Merchant is much better-known to UK audiences as the frequent partner of Ricky Gervais in producing such shows as the original UK version of The Office, as well as An Idiot Abroad.
“Lip sync battling is one of the coolest things happening in pop culture right now and already has a huge fan base thanks to the amazing talent involved,” Viacom Entertainment Group exec Casey Patterson said.
