Ellen DeGeneres And Jimmy Fallon “Lip Sync Battle” On ‘Tonight Show’ (VIDEO)
Earlier in the day, Fallon tweeted that DeGeneres had “challenged me to a lip sync battle tonight. I accepted,” and that he needed to choose two songs. DeGeneres further threw down the gauntlet, tweeting, “You’re about to be lip sunk.”
First up was Fallon, who began by fake singing The Killers’ song “Mister Brightside.”
DeGeneres went next, and said that Diana Ross has “a lot of fun, upbeat dancing songs,” but the one she chose “isn’t one of them.” The comedian then sat on the floor as she sang the melancholy tune “Do You Know Where You’re Going To.”
Fallon then took off his jacket, and launched into a lip sync of ever-popular song, “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” complete with all the right dance, arm and leg moves.
For her second and final tune, DeGeneres sang an impassioned version of Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money.” Justin Timberlake judged the battle, and deemed DeGeneres the winner.
DeGeneres joins a slew of other celebs who have gone head-to-head with Fallon in lip sync battles. Among those who previously competed are Tom Cruise, Lena Dunham, Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, and Paul Rudd.
