Lip Sync Battle
held its first-ever live show
on Sunday night, bringing back some LSB
All Stars and one Olympic champion to compete for the show’s coveted championship belt.
Michael Phelps squared off against Olivia Munn, Terry Crews and John Legend on the lip sync competition show, and didn’t pull any punches, showing off his legendary “Phelps Face” in true form as he performed a behind-the-blocks favorite, “Lose Yourself” by Eminem, recreating the rapper’s 8 Mile anthem down to the hoodie and graffiti-riddled bathroom.
But the 23-time Olympic champion faced some stiff competition, as Crews channeled his fan-favorite character from Idiocracy, President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, for an election-themed take on Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power” (featuring dancing lookalikes of President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump).
Legend, who is married to LSB co-host Chrissy Teigen, also pulled out all the stops for an in-character performance of OutKast’s “Hey Ya,” featuring a special appearance by Stevie Wonder!
And he wasn’t the only one with a celebrity cameo! Munn enlisted two of Phelps’ fellow Rio gold medalists, gymnasts Simone Biles and Aly Raisman, for her circus-inspired rendition of Sia’s “Cheap Thrills.”
However, the All-Stars’ efforts were all for naught, as Phelps ended up on top once again -- just like he did five times at the Rio Games. In fact, the most-decorated Olympian of all time told LSB host LL Cool J that he’s already got a spot in the trophy room all picked out.
“This is awesome,” Phelps said of his championship belt. “I know just where to put this.”
