Jimmy Fallon brought back his hilarious Lip Sync Battle skit to The Tonight Show, this time competing against Emma Stone.
The premise of the Lip Sync Battle is fairly simple: Fallon and one or more of his guests do their best to lip sync classic songs for the audience. Each contestant “sings” twice.
This time Fallon went first out of respect for Stone’s inexperience with the game. He performed Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy,” a song which was received well. Stone went next and performed Blues Traveler’s “Hook,” which brought the house down.
To “up his game,” Fallon next went with Styx’s “Mr. Roboto” and Stone called his performance “incredible.” Stone then performed DJ Khaled’s “All I do is Win,” and win she did.
Watch the skit below:
Emma Stone was on the show to promote The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which will be hitting theaters in America this Friday. It has already been released in the majority of markets and is doing decent financially as well as critically. So far the film has brought in $132 million in the worldwide box office and is pulling a respectable 70% on the movie review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
Lip Sync Battle is one of the better skits Fallon has brought to The Tonight Show. Fallon has been commanding late night ever since he took over for Jay Leno in February.
Last week Fallon led all late night shows with 3.069 million viewers over the second place Jimmy Kimmel Live, which brought in 2.840 million viewers. What makes the win more impressive than it already would be is that Kimmel had a Scandal special on Thursday that brought in a season high viewership. Kimmel was off every day but Thursday and Fallon was off the entire week. Still Fallon’s week of rebroadcasts winning shows nothing but good things for NBC.
