Jimmy Fallon had quite the night last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Not only did he and Justin Timberlake do one of the show’s best bits, “History Of Rap 6,” he also accepted Ellen Degeneres‘s challenge for a “Lip Sync Battle.” This bit is so popular, it got its own show.
Watch the Lip Sync Battle below.
Justin Timberlake was the judge of this bit. Fallon’s first song was “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers, and he was pure energy. It’s a great song.
Ellen toned it down a bit with the “Theme From Mahogany (Do You Know Where You’re Going To)” by Diana Ross, which, by the way, is a beautiful song. She sat cross-legged and wide-eyed (with a little floor sliding), while JT and Fallon cackled in the background.
Fallon’s second song was “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” by SilentÃ³. And yes… he did “the stanky leg.” As a matter of fact, he did the whole dance. Ellen was right. That wasn’t fair. Ellen shot back with “Bitch Better Have My Money” by Rihanna, which made the audience scream. Her over-explanation behind the meaning of her song is classic Ellen.
“This song is a business transaction, I believe…”
Who did JT declare as winner? Watch to find out!
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35pm ET on NBC.
