Melissa McCarthy Defeats Fallon in Tonight Show Lip Sync Battle (Video)

It’s (exactly) what you hearin’: Melissa McCarthy dominated Jimmy Fallon in a Tonight Show lip sync battle.

The Mike & Molly actress was in it to win it during Monday’s showdown, performing both “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” by DMX and “Colors of the Wind” from Disney’s Pocahontas, which required a pair of safety goggles to protect from the copious amounts of “nature” being blown in her direction.

Fallon, on the other hand, just couldn’t compete with his setlist, which included the 1971 track “Brand New Key” by Melanie and the more recent “Pillow Talk” by former One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik.

Watch the battle play out above, then cast your vote in the comments.

    Really not that great of a battle and Melissa McCarthy does not lip sync well. However, Colors of the Wind was awesome though. Couldn’t stop laughing. The Emma Stone one is still number one.

  6. I think Jimmy won stage 1 with the rollerskating impersonation BUT Melissa clearly cleaned up in round 2… that was hysterical.

    She was hilarious and I couldn’t stop laughing, but she really wasn’t good at the actual lip syncing though. It seemed like she didn’t actually know the words. Emma Stone and Paul Rudd are still my favorites. They were spot on in their lip syncs.
