This is the lip sync battles to end all lip sync battles — Jimmy Fallon versus Ellen DeGeneres! The talk show hosts battled it out on ‘The Tonight Show’ on Sept. 9, with Justin Timberlake in the judge’s seat. Watch the video here!
Jimmy Fallon, 40, and Ellen DeGeneres, 57, went head to head in an unforgettable lip sync battle on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and the competition was fierce! Both talk show hosts gave the lip syncing performance of a lifetime, but there was only one winner which Justin Timberlake, 34, decided on!
Jimmy kicks off the battle with “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers and he gets very into it with hilarious hand gestures. He then wishes Ellen good luck before she steps up, and we can’t say she needed it because she nailed it. Unlike Jimmy’s lively performance, Ellen sings the emotional and sappy Diana Ross ballad, “Do You Know You’re Going To.” Jimmy seemed to be loving her rendition of it, too!
Round two kicks off with Jimmy taking on Silento doing the whip/nae nae, and we have to say, he does it flawlessly, making both Justin and Ellen crack up. However, Ellen gives Jimmy a run for his money performing Rihanna‘s smash hit “B–ch Better Have My Money.” Her attitude is sassy and fierce as she sings directly to the camera! While both Jimmy and Ellen were fabulous, Justin chose Ellen as the ultimate winner.
Sept. 9 was definitely an eventful episode of The Tonight Show. Earlier in the night, Jimmy and Justin reunited on stage to perform “History of Rap 6,” which included some Salt-N-Pepa, Kendrick Lamar and more hits!
