We've long been skeptical of this lip sync trend that bloomed elegantly from Ru Paul's Drag Race before slithering its way into many Jimmy Fallon interviews only to finally plop down on the prolonged, noisy death bed of Spike.
Since then it's been a parade of celebrities with declining cred, bottoming out with (beloved but confusing) Stephen Merchant and a coterie of dancing reality television contestants.
Our interest was very peaked however to see Alison Brie on the roster for the July 9 episode of the show. And that interest was very much rewarded with a bombshell of a performance as she professionally slunk her way through Salt-N-Pepa's Shoop.
It was a beautiful thing.
What is this Lip Sync Battle thing, besides a rip off of Ru Paul's Drag Race?
This video undoubtedly showcases more to love about Terry Crews, but it also showcases very little actual lip syncing. There seems to be a whole lot more dancing.
Another week, another lip sync battle comes to Spike TV.
It's been three weeks, and so far the new show inspired by Jimmy Fallon, inspired by years of Ru Paul's Drag Race, continues to bring tother a number of charming, charming celebrities to ham it up for America. (Oooh, speaking of that, John Hamm please.)
So, enjoy this one!
