What happens when you take an amazing idea and watch it grow?
Well it just might be big enough for its own TV show!
That’s exactly what happened when an incredible late night talk show host / comedian by the name of Jimmy Fallon turned an idea into a new pop culture phenomenon!
The thing I love the most about Jimmy Fallon is that he’s so risky with his talk show so he always ends up being the talk of the town on social media platforms of all kinds and he gets in the news alllll the time for doing such shocking things! He’s the Madonna of talk show hosts. He’s the Ellen Degeneres of midnight TV.
And speaking of late nights, yes that’s what I’m pulling here, but the show must go on and even though my eyes are heavy…here I am writing to you! HAHA
After a crappy night’s sleep, a flight home for vacation, and a night out with my best friends…this rockstar is hitting the hay soon!!
But before I do, I wanted to tell you that ever since Jimmy Fallon did lip sync battles on his talk show…they got to be so epic that Spike TV approached Jimmy to create a show based on it.
The show just premiered its first episode on April 2nd with their host LL Cool J and commentator/supermodel, Chrissy Teigen (who is married to R&B singer John Legend, by the way!).
The show works like this…Two celebrities participate in a lip syncing battle for two rounds with the crowd determining the winner of the battle after the rounds are over!
The best one I’ve seen so far is Anne Hathaway’s solo performance of Miley Cyrus’ smash hit song “Wrecking Ball”!
Check out her battle with her Devil Wears Prada costar Emily Blunt, here:
She even licked the hammer!!! LOL
The coolest thing about the battles are that they fully commit to the artists they are portraying! I love to see how competitive the celebrities get! No expenses are spared and the outfits, dances, and laughs are worth every minute of the show! I say this because my friends and I just watched every episode…needless to say, we’re sure this show is epic awesomeness!
Tune in at 10 pm / 9 pm central for more Lip Sync Battle every Thursday on Spike and for more information, go here: [spike.com/shows/lip-sync-battle].
I’m elated to see a show do so well & I’m happy music is at the core of it!
