Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was once again holding a title belt on Spike TV, last night. Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon was no match for the People's Champion. Johnson squared off against the talk show entertainer (and inventor of celebrity lip sync battles) in the inaugural showdown of Spike TV's new series, Lip Sync Battle, hosted by LL Cool J.
Johnson went first, performing his lip sync rendition of "Shake It Off," by "Tay Tay," as he called Taylor Swift. The fans loved it, but Jimmy Fallon followed up by saying that if you put a rock in a pool, "it sinks right down the Dwayne!" Fallon wasn't going down easily. He performed "Jump In The Line," and literally did just that. Fallon hopped off the stage and started a conga line in the audience!
For his second song, Fallon fakely sang Madonna's "Like A Prayer.' Even though Fallon had an entire choir sing, he still couldn't snag a victory after Johnson's second performance. "Stayin' Alive," really sealed the win for The Rock.
In his acceptance speech, The Rock said everyone from Fallon, to LL Cool J, to commentator Chrissy Teigen did their thing, but most importantly, the crowd did their thing. Of course, he concluded with the fact that everyone can smell what The Rock is cooking.
You can watch The Rock lip sync Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" in the video below, or watch the entire episode on Spike's website.
Lip Sync Battle airs Thursdays on Spike TV at 10 PM EST.
