Clark Gregg versus Hayley Atwell, Lip Sync Battle

David and I watched this last weekend and it is simply amazing and must be watched by anyone who is a fan of Clark Gregg or Hayley Atwell. Clark Gregg kills it doing Brittany Spears, Toxic, which will forever be known as the song at the end of the world because of Doctor Who. Then there is Hayley Atwell doing an amazing Lady Gaga.

Melissa McCarthy Lip Sync Battle

I have loved Melissa McCarthy ever since I watched her as Sookie in Gilmore Girls. I have heard of people saying that she is type cast, but I have enjoyed her in everything she has been in and if you have not watched Spy yet I highly recommend it. Until then here is Melissa McCarthy on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon competing in a Lip Sync Battle.

Are You Watching Lip Sync Battle?

One of our recent finds on YouTube is Lip Sync Battle, a show that needs a little explanation – but also doesn’t. The easy part is that they get two celebrities on and have them battle it out, Lip Syncing a song, and the crowd picks the winner. It’s on Spike, and hosted by LL Cool J.

And so they opened with Dwayne Johnson versus Jimmy Fallon.

Yes, that’s the Rock singing Taylor Swift. Alright, so they had us hooked.

It’s based on a segment that Jimmy Fallon ran occasionally (thus bringing him in to kick off the stand-alone show). Fallon’s segment is based on an idea by Emily Blunt and her husband. Another reason to love Emily Blunt, as Holly will tell you!

Given that it’s also based on Jimmy Fallon’s success, they are of course posting full videos of the songs on YouTube. So even though we don’t have Spike, we have this show, which is great.

They added an online-only element to the show, as well. So they brought in YouTubers to run this – and that’s the last piece that caught our attention. One of their hosts? Elliott Morgan. We’d wondered where he went when he was suddenly no longer on Mashable.

So after the break, check out the pre-show with Elliott Morgan, and then you can watch to see how round two of the Lip Sync Battle worked out between The Rock and Jimmy Fallon!
