Late Night talk show host Jimmy Fallon is in the middle of his second week as the new host of The Tonight Show. Week one went off without a hitch, most of the week being at a later time due to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. This week, Jimmy is going to have another star-studded week with visits from actors like Adam Sandler, actress Drew Barrymore, Team USA Snowboarder Shaun White, Ralph Fiennes, and many more; however, I think it is safe to say that tonight’s guest Paul Rudd stole the show.
During the interview portion of the appearance, Paul talked about the Rocky musical, his son meeting Sylvester Stallone, and he re-release of the Rated-R version of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. However, it was after the interview where things started to get truly hilarious.
Jimmy announced that him and Paul were going to have a lip sync battle. Each of them chose two songs, neither of them knowing what the other one had chosen. Being that he was the guest on the show, Jimmy allows Paul to go first.
Paul starts off with a rather interesting version of Tina Turner’s “You Better Be Good To Me.” Not to be out done, Fallon opens with a pretty amazing rendition of “Jukebox Hero” from Foreigner. Round One definitely goes to Fallon.
However, Rudd kicked Round Two into high gear. He channeled his inner Freddie Mercury and busted out an epic rendition of Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now.” After that performance, Fallon knew that he had been beat. With that, he conceded defeat.
There are some things that you just have to see for yourself. Take a look at the first official Lip Sync Battle on tonight’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs at 11:35 p.m. EST on NBC.
