I never watched The Tonight Show while Jay Leno was hosting. When Jimmy Fallon was pegged to take over when Leno retired, that all changed. I think Fallon has done a phenomenal job with the show so far, and last night was no exception with another round of Lip Sync Battles with Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani just ahead of the season premiere of The Voice.
I’m not a fan of country music by any stretch, but how can you not like Blake Shelton as he lip syncs “Puttin’ on the Ritz” by Taco – complete with tap dancing to boot! – followed up with Starship’s “Nothing’s Going To Stop Us Now.” Gwen Stefani’s “performance” of Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe” wasn’t half bad either but the final performance of “Endless Love” by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross with Stefani and Shelton switching singing roles was pretty funny. Close second (after Shelton’s Taco performance) though has to be Jimmy Fallon doing “Burn” by Ellie Goulding. There’s just something extra funny about a guy lip syncing a female singer. Check out the clip below!
UPDATE: Unfortunately the clip has been removed from YouTube.
And in case you missed it, my all time favorite Lip Sync Battle so far has to be Emma Stone – she absolutely kills it! Ludacris move over!
