Since Lip Sync Battle joined Spike’s TV lineup in April 2015, celebrity guests have competed at fake-singing hits ranging from the Backstreet Boys to Black Sabbath. The audience chooses a winner, who takes home a hefty championship belt. LL Cool J is the host, and Chrissy Teigen is the eye candy.
Great dancers always do well on Lip Sync Battle: the entire performance is judged, and full use of the stage is expected. Comedians struggle -- aside from Jimmy Fallon, the program's mastermind. Anyone who mimes a hit made famous by their opponent is given props, and women rappers and men in drag do especially well.
This Thursday, Spike will air an hour-long special episode where Star Trek Beyond stars Zoë Saldana and Zachary Quinto duke it out for the title. With the above observations in mind, we ranked the 25 best Lip Sync battlers to date.
