Melissa McCarthy’s Lip Sync Battle With Jimmy Fallon Is The Best Lip Sync Battle Of All Time
Lip Sync Battle is a segment that has spawned many precious gems of internet. From Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna showing us what it’s like when they head into the bone zone to Joseph Gordon Levitt going Method to channel Janet Jackson, the simple notion of a celebrity lip synching to some dumb song backed by the Roots band is something that just works. But, this one? With Melissa McCarthy and Jimmy “Ugh, I Can’t Stop Smiling” Fallon? This one takes the cake.
Ignore Jimmy Fallon Falloning about on the floor to Zayn’s “Pillowtalk.” I know, it’s hard, but try. Focus instead, on Melissa McCarthy’s “X Gon’ Give It To Ya.” Such verve. Such panache. Such committment! Then turn your attention to the finale, a showstopper involving “Colors of The Wind,” a wind machine, a bunch of confetti and two stuffed animals shot out of a T-shirt cannon that McCarthy catches WITHOUT BREAKING A SWEAT.
She’s so great. She’s so talented! Spy is an underrated gem of a film! The Boss looks great! Support Melissa McCarthy. Help Melissa McCarthy. Protect her at all costs.
