Watch Paul Rudd Go Queen in a Jimmy Fallon “Lip Sync Battle”
Unsurprisingly, Jimmy Fallon brought along his famous “Lip Sync Battles” when he moved over to host ‘The Tonight Show‘ as Jay Leno‘s successor. To kick things off with his first installment in his new late-night hour, Fallon challenged ‘Anchorman 2‘ and future ‘Ant-Man‘ star Paul Rudd, and you can watch their battle right here.
To be frank, all these Lip Sync Battles feel the same as stars take the mic and try to out do Fallon with exuberant hand gestures and body flourishes, but you can generally find a better display of theatrics in ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ when it’s time to “Lip Sync For Your Life.”
That said, Rudd pulled out the stops in giving us some Tina Turner diva-tude with “You Better Be Good to Me,” followed by the superior “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen, the latter performance including some pretty stellar tiger action and hip thrusting that’d put anyone to shame.
Sorry, Fallon, by Foreigner is not gonna cut it.
