Melissa McCarthy Just Crushed Jimmy Fallon in a Lip Sync Battle for the Ages
Her prop game was especially on point
In case you missed it, Melissa McCarthy dropped by The Tonight Show last night to tease her new movie The Boss, but also to show Jimmy who’s the boss of the lip sync battle. (Ay-oh!)
The competition started off clean--Jimmy did an impressive rendition of Melanie’s “Brand New Key” and Melissa followed it up with DMX’s “X Gonna Give It To Ya” featuring some surprisingly stellar dance moves. All very cute and tame. But after Jimmy’s second number (Zayn’s “Pillowtalk”), Melissa decided to kick things up a notch with an inspired rendition of “Colors of the Wind” from--oh yes--Disney’s Pocahontas. Let’s just say there was glitter and wind machines--and, um, stuffed animals--involved.
Watch the clip and try not to belt along.
