‘Lip Sync Battle’: John Legend & Common Face Off
Common started the night by stepping out as a clone to Lionel — wig and all! His outfit was exactly something of what the iconic musician would wear in the 80s, which definitely added to his performance of “All Night Long (All Night).” He gave a passionate lip syncing performance complete with back up dancers and moves of his own, surprising everyone with his major breakdancing skills! Both John and his supermodel wife Chrissy Teigen, 29, were loving it!
Next, John took the stage and transformed into 90s sensation MC Hammer. Let us say he nailed the outfit — special shout out to THOSE PANTS! Like John, he also had back up dancers, but he completely stole the show with his special dance moves while owning his epic performance — Chrissy couldn’t help herself from bopping around either!
And the winner of that Lip Sync Battle was… Common! The rapper tweeted his victory.
The very first episode of Lip Sync Battle also showed an epic battle between Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, 42, and Jimmy Fallon, 40. The Rock did a hilarious take on Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” while Jimmy opted for Madonna’s classic “Like A Prayer.” You can find out who won and watch that hilarious showdown here!
