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.
Tomorrow night on Lip Sync Battle, it’s guns vs. guns as Terry Crews and Mike Tyson battle it out ’80s style. Crews kills it doing “Sucker MCs” by Run DMC while Tyson shows us how to “Push It” by Salt N’ Pepa. Host LL Cool J is dying, while Chrissy Teigen dances around. They really do have the best jobs ever.
Spike TV’s biggest show ever, Lip Sync Battle, has just been renewed for a second season, after just four episodes. This viral sensation, which started out as a Jimmy Fallon bit, first on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and then on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, got its own show that premiered on Spike on April 2nd, 2015. That was quick, right? It is no surprise though. The show is mindless fun.
The game pits two celebrities (not B, C, or D-listers either) against each other for two rounds of songs. The audience picks the winner. It is not just lip syncing to songs that are sometimes incongruous to the person performing. The production goes all out, with costumes, props, backup dancers, and sometimes guests.
