Melissa McCarthy Totally Dominates a Lip-Sync Showdown Against Jimmy Fallon

Cady Lang

It’s not often that Jimmy Fallon can be bested at performing on his own show (case in point: the insane “Evolution of” performances that he pulls off every time)—but he might have just met his match in Melissa McCarthy, who pulled out all the stops to compete against Jimmy in an epic lip-sync battle last night.

While Jimmy performed impressive renditions of songs like Zayn Malik’s “Pillowtalk,” McCarthy really took her challenge to the next level with a highly realistic performance of DMX’s “X, Gon’ Give It to Ya” and a no-holds-barred cover of “Colors of the Wind” from “Pocahontas,” complete with a wind machine, safety goggles, and flying leaves.

Better luck next time, Jimmy—it’s hard to compete with a wind machine.
