Jimmy Fallon challenges Paul Rudd to lip-sync battle

Updated:

By: Josh Furlong, KSL

Former "Saturday Night Live" regular Jimmy Fallon is now in his second week hosting "The Tonight Show," taking over for longtime comedian Jay Leno.

Fallon, who has a different style than his predecessors, continues to serve up some great acts. Whether it's his thank-you notes or his History of Rap with Justin Timberlake, Fallon has re-energized the late-night television scene.

And for the first time since hosting "The Tonight Show," Fallon introduced the bit he used while hosting "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Tuesday night: Lip Sync Battle.

In his new installment, Fallon challenges actor Paul Rudd to a lip-sync battle. The two select two songs to perform in a battle of the ages. Neither person knows the other's song and is expected to bring their A-game.

Rudd serves up the proverbial ball and crushes Fallon with his lip-sync rendition of Tina Turner's song “You Better Be Good to Me.” He follows up the assault with Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now."

Fallon didn't even stand a chance and concedes before singing his second song. He knew that he'd been beaten.

To be fair, Fallon's lip-sync rendition of “Jukebox Hero” by Foreigner was a talented performance, but it wasn't quite up to par with Rudd's performance.

It's not the first time Fallon was overshadowed by a guest. In September 2013, Fallon invited Stephen Merchant and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to a lip-sync battle and was clearly the lesser of the three.

Nevertheless, I’ll still watch Fallon and his musical acts, chuckling along with the rest of you.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
