SQUEE! | Lip Sync Battle trailer

Thursday, March 19

The Lip Sync Battle bit on Jimmy Fallon is one of my favorite things ever. So when I saw this trailer, I got very excited.

But to be honest, I'm also a little hesitant. The fact that the battles on Jimmy's show don't happen often makes them unique and special. I just hope this show elevates the art form rather than taking it down.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about:
  1. Let me introduce you to my friend; it's called the Internet ...
  2. See below for three of my favorite examples of how awesome this bit can be!


  1. YES. I still think the one with Stephen Merchant and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is my favorite!

  2. At the risk of being accused of over-thinking it what really does it for me is the chance to see celebrities acting goofy in a somewhat but not completely structured manner. Dancing with the Stars is too structured for my tastes and non competition reality shows are too unstructured for my tastes. (Syfy's Face-Off is my favorite reality show at the moment). And don't get me started on 'Behind the Scenes'. I used to be down for a little DVD commentary but as I dove into Kickstarter, so many of the extended rewards became behind the scenes related items. Dear god, I don't need a signed picture of your damn dog just give me the final product in a period of time that is less than 2 years.

    Phew, that rant had been building for a while. tl;dr I think Lip Sync battles are a sweet spot for celebrity hijinks, but only for one season worth.

  3. Love Face-Off! And I think Lip Sync Battles definitely has a shelf life, but I'm hoping it's really awesome while it lasts. :)
