We don’t even need to see the episode to know who wins the Lip Sync Battle between Anna Kendrick and John Krasinski. The star of ‘Pitch Perfect’ and perhaps the owner of the greatest celebrity twitter feed showed off her lip sync chops for the fourth episode.
Set to air April 16, the show will feature Anna Kendrick performing One Direction’s ‘Steal My Girl’ in which a video montage plays of her singing to pictures of Krasinski’s wife, Emily Blunt. She was just on a previous episode battling a ‘Wrecking Ball’ Anne Hathaway.
Cracking up on the sidelines, John Krasinski was treated to to Kendrick professing her ‘love’ for the fellow actress. It was complete with a Anna and Emily together in a heart t-shirt.
To top it off, Anna added some ‘Booty’ to the show, lip syncing Jennifer Lopez’s song. With the show adding more and more props, Kendrick went all in and brought out Jennifer Lopez herself.
John Krasinski looked on, knowing he has lost the belt, yelling “What is happening?!?”
For his part, John Krasinski will perform Tina Turner’s ‘Proud Mary’ wearing a slinky silver dress that will have you scrambling to Amazon for eye bleach. Sorry, it can’t be unseen.
Chrissy Teigen Lip Sync Battle Woes
The show has hit all the right numbers except for one. Chrissy Teigen seems to be tacked on throughout the show. Granted, no one has the charisma of LL Cool J, but the showrunners should figure out a way to incorporate her into the show that makes sense.
For now, the cut aways to her at the bar are jarring. Maybe rework her part and make her an equal host with LL. Watching her in interviews show she can easily pull off a better role in the show.
Past that, it’s fun to see celebrities cut loose and flip each other off. It’s hard to see the show not getting stale but for now it is hitting on all cylinders. My favorite? The Rock dancing to Taylor Swift.
It is still bewildering why NBC passed on the show from Jimmy Fallon. I get that it probably wouldn’t have staying power, but name a few NBC shows that have staying power these days.
