Videos: Anna Kendrick and John Krasinski Lip Synch Battle – J. Lo Joins Too
Anna Kendrick and John Krasinski battled it out on the new hit television series on Spike, Lip Synch Battle.
On the hit television series, Lip Synch Battle, two celebrities do their best to sing along with a song of their choice, pulling out all the stops to win the title of best lip syncher.
The battle between Kendrick and Krasinski was a tough one for several reasons. The first most important reason is that Krasinski was the first celebrity to lip synch on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in 2013. As a result of his lip synching with Fallon, it became a permanent part of both Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show. John knows a good thing when he sees it, as he is the exwcutive producer for Lip Synch Battle. The second reason Krasinski went all in during his battle was his wife, Emily Blunt, lost her lip synch battle to Anne Hathaway during last week’s show. We have the Anne Hathaway/Emily Blunt showdown here.
Kendrick was also expected to be amazing – since she is very familiar with singing, having a hit song and singing in the Disney Movie, Into the Woods.
During the first round of Lip Synch Battle, John Krasinski sang the *NSYNC classic, Bye, Bye Bye, complete with the dance moves straight out of the boy band’s music video. Kendrick then performed One Direction’s, Steal My Girl,as a tribute to Blunt, featuring a montage of the British actress played on a screen and as the final jab at Krasinski, Kendrick opened her jacket to reveal she was wearing a shirt that featured a picture of herself with Blunt in a heart.
In round two, Krasinski took the stage and began lip syncing to Tina Turner’s Proud Mary, before ripping off his clothes to reveal a sparkly silver dress. This wasn’t going to be easy to beat. What could Kendrick possibly do to top that performance? Singing the rap song Booty, by Jennifer Lopez, the superstar’s collaboration with Pitbull, Kendrick pulled out all the stops and brought out the one and only, J. Lo.
The winner of the Lip Synch Battle was Anna Kendrick.
