WATCH: Hoda Kotb Twerks To “Baby Got Back” On Lip Sync Battle (VIDEO)
Hoda Kotb shakes her booty to Sir Mix-a-Lot’s ’90s jam “Baby Got Back” in a preview clip of Thursday’s “Lip Sync Battle” competition on Spike. Watch her performance below.
The “Today” show host gyrates wildly to the sexually-suggestive rap song, twerking toward the audience and taunting her rival daytime talk show host, Michael Strahan, during her energetic performance. As Gossip Cop previously reported, the new showdown also features Strahan mouthing “Poison,” with Bel Biv DeVoe backing him up. Both stars will also have a second performance before one of them is crowned the winner. While the official prize is the “Lip Sync Battle” championship belt, expect to see some morning-after bragging, too.
On last week’s “Lip Sync” battle, Terry Crews defeated Mike Tyson with an amazingly heartfelt take on Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles.” And prior to that, Anna Kendrick topped John Krasinski with her rendition of “Booty,” which featured a cameo with Jennifer Lopez. In fact, “Lip Sync” has been the hot spring TV show, with Anne Hathaway besting her Devil Wears Prada frenemy Emily Blunt, Common beating out John Legend, and Dwayne Johnson destroying Jimmy Fallon with his extremely viral take on Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.”
Watch Kotb performing “Baby Got Back” below, and tell us if you think she looks like one of those “rap guys’ girlfriends.”
