Julianne Hough Defeats Brother Derek On Lip Sync Battle With “I Just Had Sex” And Meghan Trainor — WATCH VIDEOS!
The episode marked the first time “Lip Sync Battle,” the breakout show of spring, has had relatives go head to head. As Gossip Cop reported, previous matches included Emily Blunt versus Anne Hathaway, Blunt’s husband John Krasinski versus Anna Kendrick, and The Rock versus Jimmy Fallon. Chrissy Teigen, the show’s “colorful commentator,” also watched her husband John Legend get beat by Common.
Both Houghs have singing and, of course, dancing experience, but how would they do putting on two performances each when the focus had to be on lip syncing? Well, the first round began with Derek faux-rapping Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us,” before Julianne took on “All About That Bass.” She even had a surprise guest: Meghan Trainor herself. Derek tried to get his sis disqualified for the (totally allowed) cameo, and even called the booty-popping routine “wildly inappropriate.”
Poor Derek had no idea what was still to come. He kicked off the second round wearing a Sia-like wig, taking on her hit “Chandelier” with a hilarious interpretative dance. He found himself traumatized shortly after, though, when he had to watch his little sis do The Lonely Island’s “I Just Had Sex.” The sexually-explicit lyrics, not to mention Julianne’s raunchy dance moves, had her brother mortified.
But sex sells, and it was enough to give Julianne the win and the “Lip Sync Battle” champion belt to take home to their family. Derek may be scarred for life, but he tweeted around the time of the broadcast, “Julianne clearly showed that she would do anything to win. Hats off to the Champ @juleshough.” For her part, Julianne tweeted, “Can’t believe I had the cojones to actually commit to my second song!” Check out the videos below, and tell us what you think!
