Emmy-Nominated 'Lip Sync Battle': The 7 Best Battles (So Far)

Here are the seven most popular face-offs (so far), according to views on the show's YouTube channel:

7. Terry Crews vs. Mike Tyson
There was no question that actor Terry Crews would fully commit in his shirtless rendition of Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles.” Mike Tyson went less heartfelt with his lip-sync of Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It.”

6. Anthony Mackie vs. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Anthony Mackie lip-synced to MC Hammer’s “2 Legit 2 Quit” but was blown away by The Night Before co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s complete dance routine of Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation.”

5. Julianne Hough vs. Derek Hough
Dancing With the Stars’ Derek Hough and Julianne Hough brought sibling rivalry to the stage. Derek wore a white wig while lip-syncing Sia’s “Chandelier,” while his sister got a little raunchy with The Lonely Island’s “I Just Had Sex.”

4. Anna Kendrick vs. John Krasinski
Anna Kendrick brough the full J.Lo package with “Booty,” doing a dance routine and even bringing out Lopez to accompany her. John Krasinski took on a different diva with Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.”

3. Anne Hathaway vs. Emily Blunt
Anne Hathaway brought in more than 20 million views online with her rendition of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” complete with her very own wrecking ball. Emily Blunt adopted Janis Joplin's persona for “Piece of My Heart.”

2. Channing Tatum vs. Jenna Dewan-Tatum
In easily the most memorable episode of the show, Jenna Dewan-Tatum poked fun at her husband with Ginuwine’s “Pony” (Tatum’s infamous Magic Mike XXL strip routine), while Channing hand brought out Beyoncé (!) and dressed in drag for “Run the World (Girls).”

1. Jimmy Fallon vs. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
The only thing that could top the Tatums is the very first episode. Lip Sync Battle’s growing popularity began with the lip-syncing talents of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, who helped come up with the idea for the show and is an exec producer. Johnson performed a heartfelt “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift, while Fallon started a conga line with Harry Belafonte’s “Jump in the Line.”


Lip Sync Battle

American musical reality competition television series

Lip Sync Battle is an American musicalreality competition television series that premiered on April 2, 2015, on the American cable network Spike, later known as Paramount Network. The show is based on an idea by Stephen Merchant and John Krasinski, in which celebrities battle each other with lip sync performances. The idea was introduced as a recurring segment on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and later The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, before being developed into a separate show.

The premiere episode was the highest-rated premiere in Spike's history. Lip Sync Battle has been a hit show for the network. The series' success has led to the creation of various international adaptations. In August 2018, the show was renewed for a fifth season which premiered on January 17, 2019.

On September 22, 2020, it was announced that the series would move to another ViacomCBS network as part of the Paramount Network's upcoming shift to films.[2]


Lip Sync Battle debuted on Spike on April 2, 2015.[3] It is produced by John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant and hosted by rapper and actor LL Cool J.[4][5] Model Chrissy Teigen serves as color commentator.

The show is a spin-off of a bit first introduced on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Merchant, Krasinski and Emily Blunt, were brainstorming ideas for Krasinski's upcoming appearance on Late Night when the idea took shape.[6]Jimmy Fallon then developed it into a recurring segment on his show. The game pits two celebrities against each other in a lip syncing battle for two rounds. The audience votes for the winner, who receives a Lip Sync Battle belt reminiscent of the WCW Television Championship title belt.

In 2014, Merchant, Krasinski and Fallon pitched the show to NBC, who passed on it. NBC's cable channels USA Network and Bravo also passed.[6] The competition series was eventually picked up by Spike, which was then rebranding. "Part of what I wanted to do with Lip Sync Battle is increase co-viewing, but also add diversity to the network," said network president Kevin Kay.[7]

Lip Sync Battle has been a major success for Spike. Its series premiere drew 2.2 million viewers, the channel's highest-rated non-scripted premiere.[8] Kay described the show as "a television and viral rock star for Spike."[9] The show was renewed for a second season of 20 episodes on April 22, 2015.[9]

In January 2016, the network renewed the series for a third season consisting of another 20 episodes. "Lip Sync Battle is a multiplatform pop-culture phenomenon that has played an integral role in delivering a new and broader audience to Spike," Kay said.[10]

In July 2016, the show received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination in the Outstanding Structured Reality Program category.[11]

In 2017, it was announced that the show would air a live hour-long special (Lip Sync Battle Live: A Michael Jackson Celebration) on January 18, 2018, to coincide with the relaunch of Spike as Paramount Network. Neil Patrick Harris, Taraji P. Henson and Hailee Steinfeld were announced as the first set of performers for the Michael Jackson-themed special, which originated from the Dolby Theatre and included a presentation from Cirque du Soleil's Las Vegas residency Michael Jackson: One.[12]

On August 22, 2018, the show was renewed for a fifth season consisting of 12 episodes that premiered on January 17, 2019.[13]

Critical response[edit]

Josef Adalian in Vulture said that Lip Sync Battle is "looking like a legitimate hit, both on TV and online." He also added that the show's creators "opted not to impose artificial demographic targets. They also went out of their way not to futz up the very simple premise that worked so well on Fallon’s late-night shows."[14] Amy Amatangelo of The Hollywood Reporter said that the debut of the show "had moments of great fun," although she added that the series "still seems like it is better suited as an interlude on The Tonight Show," and that "some things are better in small doses."[15] Adelle Platon of Vibe wrote that the show "is a welcome break from other singing shows crowding primetime," also adding that "with the in-house crowd serving as judges, the spirit of competition between both parties makes it a fun-for-all".[16] Emily Yahr from The Washington Post was more negative towards the show by saying that "taking out all the spontaneity and replacing it with the cheesy-slick production values of an American Idol group medley, Lip Sync Battle will probably wear out its welcome soon."[17]


The series premiere of Lip Sync Battle delivered 2.2 million total viewers via Nielsen ratings, including a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is the most important to advertisers. The episode notched the largest viewership for an unscripted series debut in the network's history and the largest average audience in the slot in more than eight years.[18][19] The total audience for the first several episodes of the show, including DVR replays and multiple reruns, has climbed past 15 million television viewers. Spike has also stated that various performance clips from the first three half-hour episodes of the show had already generated nearly 100 million online streams, as of April 2015.[14]

In Australia, the series premiere scored 1.124 million viewers in preliminary overnight viewership, making it the fourth most-watched program on free-to-air television for the evening.[20][21] The second episode the following week scored 1.087 million preliminary overnight viewers and ranked the fifth-highest-rated program on free-to-air television of the night.[22] This success has led to suggestions by commentators that a local adaption could be imminent.[23]

A one-hour special hosted by Sarah Hyland aired on Nickelodeon on December 11, 2016 (followed by a repeat airing on Spike on December 14).[24] In March 2017, a series order was announced for the kid-centered spinoff.[25] In August 2017, it was announced that Nick Cannon would be replacing Sarah Hyland as the host and that JoJo Siwa would be joining him as his sidekick on Lip Sync Battle Shorties, which premiered in early 2018.[26]

A Kennedy Center Honoree, two-time Grammy Award winner, recording artist, actor, author, NAACP Image Award winner, entrepreneur and philanthropist, LL continues to display his wide range of talents with every project. "I never could have predicted that I'd still be out here rocking it more than two decades after my debut, but here I am," LL Cool J says with his trademark smile. Here he is indeed. 30 years since he first burst onto the scene, LL Cool J continues his vibrant, trailblazing career. LL Cool J began in the nascent, burgeoning rap and hip hop scene of the 80's, which developed into the musical and cultural phenomenon that is today's hip hop. All the while, LL Cool J has remained a musical and cultural force, a living icon and a significant, relevant artist still churning out the hits. First introduced to the world in 1984 as a Def Jam Records flagship artist, LL is the first rap artist to amass ten consecutive platinum-plus selling albums, in addition to 2004's The Definition and 2006's Todd Smith which both went Gold. The multi-platinum artist and two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee is currently tied for third place for most Billboard chart debuts by a rapper. In 2008, LL released his critically acclaimed album Exit 13, his appropriately titled 13th and last album for the only label he has called home - Def Jam Recordings. USA Today put it best when they said, "He may be hitting the Exit, but he is not easing up on the gas. Continuing his musical expedition three decades after he first released music, LL most recently released his critically-acclaimed 14th studio album, Authentic. With this album, the multi-platinum artist returned to the studio and kicked the volume up to create a powerful album that came from his true passion for music and would speak to his fans. LL scored his 13th Top-10 Album on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Chart with Authentic. In December 2017, LL became the first rapper to earn the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor, which is America's highest achievement for any performer and received his star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame January 21, 2016 for his achievement in music.
