Lip Sync Battle, a new show on Spike TV, is already off to an impressive start. The series premiere, which pitted show creator Jimmy Fallon against Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, aired just last week and it’s already making headlines. This week’s episode, which airs Thursday, is sure to entertain as Anne Hathaway channels her best Miley Cyrus while lip syncing to “Wrecking Ball.”
In a hilarious teaser for this week’s show, Hathaway does her best method acting while in white skivvies and long white nails, jumping on a life-size wrecking ball a la Miley. She's also seen flipping off her opponent this week, fellow actress Emily Blunt. These outrageous moves are all the more ridiculous coming from good-girl Hathaway.
Blunt’s husband, John Krasinski, co-created the show with Fallon. The two were previously known for their epic battles on Fallon’s late night show.
The show, hosted by LL Cool J, aired two episodes last week. A second show followed immediately after the pilot, featuring John Legend facing off against rapper Common. Future guests this season include Meghan Trainor, Taraji P. Henson, Jennifer Lopez and Justin Bieber. Due to the show’s immediate success, Spike TV has already signed off on additional episodes.
The show airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. What else does this week’s episode have in store for us? You’ll have to tune in to find out.
