‘Lip Sync Battle’ is getting downright dirty thanks to Emily Blunt! In this sneak peek at the new episode, the actress is stopping at nothing to make sure she triumphs over her arch nemesis, also known as Anne Hathaway!
Lip Sync Battle is quickly becoming one of our favorite shows and this clip just furthers that. On the Apr. 9 episode of the karaoke series, Emily Blunt has some fierce competition– from Anne Hathaway! The Into the Woods actress has the daunting task of taking on the classic Janis Joplin cut “Piece of My Heart,” but not to worry, Emily has a strict warmup routine that is sure to make her bulletproof against Ms. Hathaway.
‘Lip Sync Battle’: Emily Blunt & Anne Hathaway Get Dirty
Emily Blunt is going full method in order to ensure her Lip Sync Battle win over Anne Hathaway.
However, as you can probably imagine, going “method” when taking on Janis Joplin isn’t the most sustainable lifestyle. “I’ve been screaming at everybody pretty much all day because I don’t want a voice,” Emily says in this sneak peek at the new episode. “I guarantee that Anne Hathaway is in full voice right now– you can’t use that here. Thanks anyway.”

The fierce competitiveness from Emily does not stop there, though. In fact, it’s pretty clearly implied that she actually resisted bathing in preparation for this showdown. “This Goddess that I’m about to portray out there is pretty wild and she doesn’t take showers,” Emily said, referring to Janis and, uh, I guess herself as well.
We get to see just the very start of Emily’s performance before the clip cuts out, but we do also get a tiny peak at Anne’s reaction to her competitor. By the sounds of Anne’s scream, Emily’s methods might be more effective than they seem!
Do you think Emily will take down Anne? Are you excited for the new episode?
