It’s not often that Jimmy Fallon gets crushed playing his own game, but Melissa McCarthy dropped the mic and turned it up another level.

The Tonight Show‘s latest lip-sync battle featured promise from Fallon, who channeled Melanie’s “Brand New Key” and Zayn Malik’s “Pillowtalk,” but it was McCarthy who easily stole the show. She didn’t need a prop microphone for “X Gon’ Give It To Ya,” but her performance of “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas brought down the house, complete with fake leaves, water, animal props, and enough confetti to warrant a pair of protective goggles..

Never underestimate your opponent, Fallon.
