We all knew Dwayne Johnson could be funny, and his Lip Sync Battle performances were just that. But I think of Common as a perfect intellectual poet, so it did not occur to me that he had it in him to throw on a jheri curl and an open red shirt and breakdance while singing “All Night Long.” But he DID.
And John Legend as MC Hammer? Holy shit. Though personally I prefer his “Slow Motion.” SLOW SPANKING FOR THE WIN.
And that kids is how Lip Sync Battle got a series record on my DVR.
The Rock doing Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” ain’t bad, either.
