Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway went head to head on Lip Sync Battle Thursday night.
Emily Blunt put up a great fight, including an impressive performance of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity”.
Anne Hathaway also made a great show with a crazy take on Mary J. Blige’s “Love”.
It was a close call up until Emily Blunt’s rendition of Janis Joplin’s “Take Another Piece of My Heart” went up against Anne Hathaway’s version of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”.
Then it became clear that Emily Blunt absolutely must concede the win to Anne Hathaway.
I mean, come on. Emily Blunt did amazing, but Anne Hathaway blew everyone away on that ball! That was almost too much.
Before Thursday night’s show, Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway had a hilarious promo in which Emily Blunt showcased the process of getting ready for battle.
In that one, Emily Blunt said, “I’ve been screaming at everybody pretty much all day, because I don’t want a voice. And I guarantee that Anne Hathaway is in full voice right now. You can’t use that here. Thanks, anyway.”
Emily Blunt also proceeded to say, “Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Cumberbatch….,” over and over to presumably prepare her annunciation skills.
Emily Blunt poked fun at Anne Hathaway’s secretive creative process and revealed that Hathaway had been taunting her, as well.
She said, “Finally she called me and said ‘Okay, listen, I’m doing “Beethoven’s 5th”.’ And I went, ‘There aren’t any words in that.’ And she just hung up.”
In one scene, Emily Blunt threatens Anne Hathaway, saying, “I’m going to pick up your feet and mop you.”
However, it was definitely Emily Blunt that was mopped.
I’m pretty sure Anne Hathaway would have beat Miley herself.
