Ernie Johnson is usually the guy who keeps it together but when Shaq lost his pants while doing the Bird to Morris Day’s hit song, EJ just completely lost it and started crying from laughter.
Kenny took it back to the late 80s with a few hip hop classics like Slick Rick’s ‘Children Story’ and LL Cool J’s ‘I’m Bad.’ Chuck did a pretty embarrassing performance of Bruno Mars’ ‘Uptown Funk’ which left the former Weight Watchers spokesman winded. And EJ played all 4 members of the Beatles in a good but not so amusing effort.
The winner of the battle, which was sponsored by Jay-Z’s struggling music streaming service Tidal, was Kenny Smith with 33% of the votes. The biggest loser was Chuck with only 15% and Tidal which has already dropped out of the top 700 downloads chart despite the support of everybody from Madonna to Kanye to Usher to Rihanna and of course Beyonce.
Back to lip sync battles. The king or should I say queen of these battles is still Emma Stone.
And the worst goes to Mike Tyson who recently did ‘Push it’ on the Lip Sync Battle TV show.
