12 lip sync battles that are better than the rest.


Everyone knows what lip sync battles are now. It first became popular as a segment in The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Many guests on the show competed against Jimmy Fallon in the segment much to the joy of the show's viewers. Then, the channel Spike picked up on the idea and made a show called "Lip Sync Battle" hosted by LL Cool J. Now stars battle other stars instead of competing against the host. However, the show goes a step further than before. Now stars perform 2 songs. The first one is a no frills performance. Typically no fancy costumes or props. The second one is choreographed, full of props, and occasionally has guest cameos. Here's a listing of the top 12 battles.

12. Will Arnet vs. Allison Brie

In case you didn't know, Will Arnet was the voice of Emmett in The Lego Movie. He plays his character well. Allison Brie pulls off the Jessie J look pretty well. And the wanted poster at the end was a nice touch.

11. John Krasinski vs. Anna Kendrick

Perfectly portrayed puppets on a string? Check. Killer boy band moves? Check. Messing with the competition? Check. Both stars kill it in their own way.

10. Paul Rudd vs. Jimmy Fallon

You can;t go wrong with Paul Rudd. And you definitely can't go wrong with Queen. While this one might not be as theatrical, the facial expressions and the fact this was all off the tops of their heads makes it great.

9. Deion Sanders vs. Justin Bieber

Deion is in a dress singing Madonna. Need I say more?

8. Zachary Quinto vs. Zoe Saldana

Zoe definitely makes a good Left Eye, and the silver outfits are fantastic. But Zachary pulling out the Missy Elliot is the winner hands down.

7. Ellen DeGeneres vs. Jimmy Fallon

The first songs might be obscure, but it's Ellen and Jimmy. All of it is funny. Totally worth the watch.

6. Terry Crews vs. Mike Tyson

If you haven't seen White Chicks, you should. It would make Terry's song choice make more sense. Vanessa Carlton should be proud. As for Mike Tyson, did you ever expect him to be a part of a lip sync battle?

5. Anne Hathaway vs. Emily Blunt

Anne Hathaway definitely embodied Miley Cyrus here. Just watch out, it's a shocking performance. She definitely came in like a wrecking ball...

4. Emma Stone vs. Jimmy Fallon

Even without the props and the choreography, this one is great. Emma Stone is just awkward enough to make the song choices funny. Plus, her facial expressions are on point. The taunting back and forth between Jimmy and Emma are hilarious.

3. Melissa McCarthy vs. Jimmy Fallon

It's Melissa McCarthy. There's a reason she's one of the top comedic actors. She kills it!

2. Channing Tatum vs. Jenna Dewan-Tatum

Beyonce ain't got nothing on Channing. He makes a fabulous Queen B. And Jenna? She does a great job mocking Channing. There's no way you won't enjoy this one.

1. Julianne Hough vs. Derek Hough

This is brother sister rivalry portrayed at it's finest. There's laughter, facial expressions of how uncomfortable or entertained the competitor is, and moments neither one of them won't live down. It's by far my favorite and the best battle I've seen yet.

Lip sync battles are great to watch. We all lip sync, whether it's in the car, in the shower, or in public. So it's great that we get to see other people do it too. And while they're at it, make us laugh.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.
