Spike's “Lip Sync Battle”—a variety show born from a popular segment on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon—is supposed to be carefree gif-able fun in which celebrities compete head-to-head with mimed performances of their favorite songs. That is until “The Night Before’s” Joseph Gordon-Levitt slayed in a serious, hardcore, no-holds-barred performance of Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation,” complete with curly ponytail and glam make-up, on the show’s holiday special.
“The Night Before” co-star Anthony Mackie’s high-energy performance of MC Hammer’s “2 Legit 2 Quit” didn’t stand a chance against Gordon-Levitt’s spot-on tribute even stunned his co-stars and hosts LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen.
This is just another epic example of Joseph’s enviable talents. Got Haterade, anyone?
