Stephen Merchants Outrageouslip Sync Battleis Only Thing You Need Watch Today
' Lip Sync Battle ' got down and dirrty last night.
It's hard to imagine anyone outdoing Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's insanely awesome 'Shake It Off' performance -- straight. up. flames -- or Anna Kendrick's perfectly choreographed interpretation of 'Booty,' but we're here to tell you that the show's latest champion Stephen Merchant rivaled the best of the best. It was truly a one of a kind performance.
Of course, we knew Merchant had serious lip syncing skillz. He crushed our bae Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' back in 2013 with a spirited performance of 'Single Ladies.' Seriously, look at this ish:
We honestly thought it couldn't get better than that... but it did, dear readers. IT DID. We will never be the same after watching Merchant, who is six-foot-seven BTW, twerk to 'Dirrty.' Everything has changed for us. The world is now a much brighter place because of this historic achievement for mankind.
That's not to say Malin Akerman wasn't a worthy opponent. The woman let Merchant pour actual sugar on her! How meta . 'She's, like, the most adorable gangster I've ever seen,' cooed Chrissy Teigen after watching Akerman get totally turnt up for her performance of Jason Derulo's 'Talk Dirty.'
It was a solid effort, but the blonde was no match for the Brit and his super-stuffed junk. We love a man who can rock a pair of chaps with confidence.
