Lena Dunham Takes On Lip-Sync Battle On ‘Jimmy Fallon’
Lena Dunham, the director and star of the HBO series Girls, took on Jimmy Fallon‘s lip-sync challenge. Dunham showed Fallon that no challenge can stump her, on her lip-sync renditions of “Outside” by Calvin Harris, featuring Ellie Goulding and “Fat Bottomed Girls” by Queen on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Friday.
DUNHAM’S AND FALLON’S LIP-SYNC BATTLE
Fallon’s not the only one challenging Dunham. On Thursday’s episode of the The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, after questioning why Dunham was doing the lip-sync battle with Fallon, Whoopi Goldberg said, “Alright Lena Dunham I’m challenging you. I’m challenging you to a lip-sync off! How about that?”
The following Friday, Lena gracefully showed off her lip-syncing skills while dancing to the catchy songs.
Dunham was looking very sporty in a low- cut tank top, black Nike skirt and a black and white athletic jacket, paired with white sneakers and giant heart shaped gold earrings. “I wanted to take this seriously and I needed room to flex,” she said while shaking her legs.
The battle started off with Fallon lip-syncing into a hand mirror to the 1982 song, “I’ve Never Been To Me,” by Charlene. Props are always important in lip-syncing battles. Fallon’s super-dramatic lip-syncing rendition did not compare to Dunham’s take on “Outside,” however.
Dunham did not miss a beat in her over-the-top performance—she even got down on all fours.
Part two of the battle began with Fallon’s almost “mic-drop”-worthy performance “Run’s House” by Run-D.M.C. Along with the help of the audience, Dunham finished the battle off with an animated performance of the 1970 hit-song “Fat Bottomed Girls.”
The audience voted Dunham as the winner of the lip-sync battle, of course.
