Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell, and Kevin Hart teamed up on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon this weekend in the second best battle after Sunday’s Super Bowl. The three competed with one another in a long-awaited lip synch battle. Fallon has touted the match on his show for weeks, and on Sunday night fans were treated to this epic competition. Now lip synching might not seem like a big deal–especially to those who have never attempted it. But more than simply mouthing the words, top notch lip synchers incorporate emotion and some impressive body moves, too.
Will Ferrell grabbed the fake mic and delivered what can only be called a writhing rendition of Beyonce’s hit “Drunk in Love.” He also belted out Idina Menzel’s “Let It Go.” Ferrell had some pretty stiff competition in the form of Kevin Hart, however, who bought tears to his everyone’s eyes as he movingly lip synched John Legend’s hit ballad, “All of Me.” He paid homage to the Super Bowl half time performer by doing Katy Perry’s “Roar,” too.
Jimmy Fallon may have actually cheated a bit. In addition to lip synching the “Dirty Dancing” theme song, “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” he brought a secret guest on stage to lip synch with him. Fallon had Drew Barrymore waiting in the wings to assist him in the competition. Fallon also performed Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone.”
So who won the competition?
According to popular belief, Will Ferrell won for “Drunk in Love.”
Did you check out Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell, and Kevin Hart duking it out in their lip synch battle? Jimmy Fallon loves to lip synch. Fans are likely looking forward to the next time he issues a challenge to do so on The Tonight Show.
That wasn’t all Jimmy Fallon did for musical fun on Sunday night’s show either. He and Carrie Underwood, Sam Smith, Ariana Grande, Blake Shelton, Usher, Meghan Trainor, One Direction, Christina Aguilera and, of course, his house band The Roots, joined together to perform a rendition of Queen’s “We Are the Champions” to congratulation Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots.
That will be a hard show to follow. Jimmy Fallon and his cast and crew will do The Tonight Show live from L.A. from Monday through Friday of this week.
