Everybody wins with a lip-sync battle between John Krasinski and Anna Kendrick
He needs to win this!
John Krasinski has a lot to prove.
Lip Sync Battle, a fake-singing game that got its start on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, is his creation, along with his co-conspirators, British comedian Stephen Merchant and Emily Blunt, Krasinski’s wife whose awesome lip-sync performance of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” totally got destroyed by Anne Hathaway’s epic rendition of Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” on the show last week.
After Blunt’s embarrassing defeat, Krasinski needs to win one for the team, especially if he’s going against Anna Kendrick, who is a force to be reckoned with.
In the Spike TV teaser below, Kendrick takes potshots at Krasinski, using a slideshow of Blunt’s pictures as a centerpiece during her mute rendition of One Direction’s “Steal My Girl.”
Not to be outdone, Krasinski takes a shot for the gold and goes full-on Tina Turner with the crowd-pleasing “Proud Mary.”
Update, 7:43am, April 17: Here’s the full battle:
