Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway Rock the Lip Sync Battle Show. The “Devil Wear’s Prada reunion battle” took place on Spike TV last night. If you’ve never heard of Lip Sync Battle, it was a skit made famous by Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show. It has become so popular that Spike TV has devoted an entire show to the comedy routine. The premise is that they find two celebrities how face off, lip syncing famous hit songs.
Last night, Blunt performed “Piece of my Heart” by Janis Joplin and “No Diggity” by Blackstreet. Hathaway took the winner’s belt for her aerial performance of “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus. Just when you think you couldn’t love “No Diggity” more… Emily Blunt took on the ’90s hit on Lip Sync Battle AND gave Anne Hathaway a lap dance to the tune! Hathaway went sexy with it, and she’s actually remarkably skilled on that wrecking ball… but I still preferred Emily Blunt’s moves. If anyone could have topped Anne Hathaway’s “Wrecking Ball” performance though, it’s Emily Blunt.
Drag Queens all round the world have been doing lip sync performances like this for years. Some far better and greater than what’s on show here, some with even original stuff. They are the true artists of their game. You could clearly see Anne Hathaway‘s inner theater geek come out, as she really took this to the next level.
As with most things, not everyone loved it. Here are a few “mean tweets” from last night:
“Why on earth would you highlight this tv garbage?”
“These pathetic shows are why real music is dead.”
“There will never another Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, or Jimi Hendrix”
“As if x factor wasn’t bad enough, now they’re not even singing!”
