Jimmy Fallon I never had a chance.
the Tonight show challenged host Tiffany Haddish to a lip synch battle on Thursday, something I had not done in a long time. As usual, each one showed up twice without the other knowing what songs they had chosen. Fallon ripped things off Deee-LiteThe classic dance of the 90s "Groove is in the heart". It took a lot of courage for an adult man to move like Fallon did, but it was no match for Haddish's confident arrogance. "When I was growing up in Los Angeles, this artist was one of my favorite MCs, and she still is today," she said. No fool actress, 38, explained. "His name is The lady of rage and the name of this song is & # 39; Afro Puffs & # 39; "
Not even Fallon could believe how compelling Haddish was. Just look at his face!
"Really?" I ask. "You're getting tough with your 'Afro Puff'."
"Come on gangsta, baby!" Haddish told him. "Come on gangsta, baby!"
Coincidentally, Fallon was about to "go gangsta" for his next song: Post Malone"Psycho." It started in a simple way, but Fallon increased the initial bet when he stopped the song to apply temporary facial tattoos that imitated the one of the rapper. Impressed, Haddish asked: "Improvised tattoos, huh?"
Haddish had his game face on, and she was not going to fall without a fight. "For my final song, I had to go deep, so I decided to go with the Godfather of the Soul, Mr. James Brown. Can we make it look like old-school television? Like the first time people saw James Brown perform? "He asked a cameraman, who gave him a black and white filter." Thank you. This song is called & # 39; Sex Machine & # 39; "
The comedian channeled Brown's spirit, imitating his famous footwork (and even doing The Robot, at random). When it was over, Fallon easily admitted defeat. "Oh my God!" He marveled. "Tiffany Haddish, everyone! The clear winner! The champion! Tiffany Haddish!"
