It’s time to talk about our guilty pleasure, Lip Sync Battle! Who am I kidding? There’s no guilt here! Episode 5 of Lip Sync Battle pits Mike Tyson Vs. Terry Crews.
The way to play: Celebrities participate in two rounds of lip syncing to their chosen songs. The first round can be vanilla. The second round demands some stage production. The winner is declared based on audience cheering volume. LL Cool J is the host and moderator while Chrissy Teigen provides color commentary, mixes drinks, dances, lip syncs in the background, and fake DJs.
This was the “most anticipated heavyweight” lip sync showdown!
Tyson’s songs are “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones, and “Push It” by Salt-N-Pepa.
Crews songs are “Sucker MC’s by Run DMC, and “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton.
So… who does the audience pick as the winner?

Mike Tyson’s first song: “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones. He comes out in these tight-ass pants, channeling Mick Jagger. You haven’t lived until you see Mike Tyson gyrate to an audience. Terry Crews rebuts with Sucker MC’s by Run DMC. He too gyrates and rubs his own butt amidst screams as he raps “bubble bath.” He shows off his 8-pack and makes his pecs dance to “one of the best beats ever made in hip-hop.”
LL Cool J: “You and your nipples have a seat.”

Crews: “I am the world’s best dancer. It’s my superpower!”
For “A Thousand Miles,” Crews starts at a grand piano, removes his shirt, and wearing nothing but white pants begins ribbon twirling with his dancers. With a sincere hopeful expression, he flexes his 3,000 muscles.
LL Cool J: “How did you channel your softer side?”
Crews: “My wife and 4 daughters.”
Tyson comes out to “Push it” by Salt-N-Pepa and does a synchronized dance (with his backup dancers) wearing tight pleather. He was having so much fun dancing, he forgot to mouth the words sometimes, but it was still incredibly delightful.
Tyson: “I feel sexy.”
Crews mimes Tyson trying to put on the skintight pants, “Push it real good!” LL Cool J drops right to the floor.
Teigen: “I have the same pants!”
