Laughing is one of my favorite things to do. Laughter makes you smile, it makes you happy, and it brightens up your mood temporarily. Whenever I need a good laugh, I look up clips of celebrities battling it out, lip sync style. When I watch those performances, sounds of amusement instantly appear. Here are a few of the funniest lip sync battle performances of all time, in no particular order, from "Lip Sync Battle" and "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."
1. John Krasinski, "Rolling On The River."
I could probably watch this video every day for the rest of my life and never grow tired of it. It could be because I absolutely adore John Krasinski. It could be because I love his outfit change and dance moves; it could be because he actually lip syncs the song very while during the entire performance so that his lips move along to Tina Turner's voice. All I know is, you have to watch this performance. I promise you'll break out in laughter.
2. Jimmy Fallon, "Like a Prayer."
Since seeing this performance, I think about Jimmy Fallon every time I hear this song on the radio. He engages the crowd, he throws in a few dance moves, and he brings out a choir. This is the kind of performance that leaves audiences satisfied. Encore, Jimmy. Encore!
3. Anne Hathaway, "Wrecking Ball."
Lip syncing isn't just about moving your lips; it requires passionate facial expressions and body movements, too. Interacting with Emily before jumping onto a wrecking ball (which no one was expecting) added suspense. The dark stage left the audience unprepared for what was about to happen.
4. Josh Gad, "I Touch Myself."
Honestly, you don't even have to watch Kaley's performance. No offense, Kaley. You did great -- you just weren't hilarious, like Josh was. Let's talk about Josh's money boxers, his dancers' matching outfits, and his make out session to Kaley's co-star at the end. I talk about this performance on a daily basis. Whenever it pops into my mind, I can't help but smile.
5. Melissa McCarthy, "Colors of The Wind."
Skip to 5:50, if you want to watch the funniest performance of the video: Melissa McCarthy pulling out all the accessories to do the "Pocahontas" song justice. From sequins, to stuffed animals and water, she has it all.
6. Terry Crews, "A Thousand Miles."
If you love "White Chicks" (which you should), you will absolutely love Terry Crews' performance. It's the #TBT we all wanted, needed, and deserved. Thank you, Terry.
7. and 8. Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson, "Shake it Off" and Jimmy Fallon, "Jump In Line."
Although I personally think Jimmy's performance is funnier than The Rock's, my sister disagrees. Either way, both of these performances are pretty funny.
9. Channing Tatum, "Let It Go."
Skip ahead to the 2:14 mark and allow yourself to be entertained by the one and only Channing Tatum as Princess Elsa. His legs are amazing in that dress. #JustSaying.
10. Will Ferrell, "Drunk In Love."
Almost anything Will Ferrell does can make us laugh, so it should come as no surprise that his lip syncing to Beyonce is pretty entertaining.
11. Stephen Merchant, "Single Ladies."
Skip ahead to 5:21 for Stephen's performance, because he is much more fun to watch than the other performers (no offense to Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jimmy Fallon, who also do a great job). Watching his hips shake and his mini jazz hands is enough to make you laugh. Add the fact that an angelic voice such as Beyonce's is coming from his mouth, and you'll be sure to chuckle.
