Too funny! Melissa McCarthy stopped by Jimmy Fallon April 4 and she played one of the most over the top hilarious versions of Lip Sync Battle that ‘The Tonight Show’ has EVER seen!
OMG!!! What more could we ask for than one of our favorite funny ladies Melissa McCarthy, 45, playing one of our favorite Tonight Show games? She went head to head with host Jimmy Fallon, 41, in his always amazing Lip Sync Battle and oh man, did Melissa come to play, even bringing out a DMX classic! Read on about their incredible competition!
Melissa admitted beforehand that she was “pretty freaked out about crushing you” to Jimmy, even though she joked she was slightly having a heart attack over what they were about it do. But if she had any nerves ,it clearly didn’t show as she blew Jimmy away their lip sync battle.
Jimmy started things off with Melanie‘s 1971 song “Brand New Key” and made the audience go wild with his attempts to play a lovestruck teenage roller skater. But we knew Melissa could easily top that, as she put on trainers and a baseball cap and jumped onstage for her performance of DMX’s “X Gonna Give It To You.” She totally OWNED it, completely bringing the attitude and energy that the song delivers.
The host knew he had to step it up, doing Zayn Malik’s “Pillowtalk” and even using an actual pillow as a prop, but Jimmy didn’t bring any sex appeal to the song so the game was Melissa’s to lose. She put on a pair of clear goggles, so we knew something big was coming up. Stream Zayn’s music, completely unlimited and ad-free RIGHT HERE
“I’m obviously going to close with a song from the Pocahontas soundtrack, this is “Colors Of The Wind,” she proudly announced before launching into the song. Set to a backdrops filled with nature scenes, she had wind and rain machines blowing at her along with fake leaves, birds, stuffed wolves and even glitter. She put so much heart and effort into it that she got a standing ovation from the audience! VERY well done Melissa.
