Lip Sync Battle: Celebs honor MJ

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

HOLLYWOOD — Paramount’s Lip Sync Battle Live is absolutely off the chain. The celebrity imitation series kicked off its 4th season last Thursday at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre with a commemoration of the late Michael Jackson. Hailee Steinfeld, Laverne Cox, Taraji P. Henson and Neil Patrick Harris comprised the quartet given the onerous task to impersonate ‘The King of Pop.’ Taraji, who portrays Cookie Lyon on the Fox television drama “Empire,” rocked the joint with her hyped rendition of “Beat It.” Donning tight leather pants and a red leather jacket, the 47-year-old actress said she was merely grateful to receive a chance to be a “rock star for the night.”

Cox, best known for her prisoner role as Sophia Burset on Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black,” performed MJ’s “Dirty Diana” and get this… the transgender thespian has another music project already in the works. “I can’t believe I’m telling you this,” Cox said with a grin. “I actually recorded a song last summer and I shot a music video for it in December. And I’m probably going to release it soon.”

Lip Sync Battle is hosted by LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen.

The show airs 9 PM Thursday nights on the Paramount Network.

  4. wow she sucked

  5. I hope you all aren’t expecting actresses and actors to sing a Michael Jackson song and preform his choreography. If so then you’re dumb. Their best talent is acting okay lmao this is just to entertain you all. If they really wanted to put on a real Michael Jackson battle they’d have Usher, Chris Brown, Ciara, Beyonce, etc to come out to do his real moves. Anyway like I said before this show is just to entertain so don’t look for so much and just enjoy the silliness that the people have provided.

    I love Taraji but she looked so stiff doing the dance, The dancers did well but dang Beat It is one of the songs that you already know how to work it, anybody who has heard this song can feel their body ready to break out and dance. I was working my hips while I was sitting and watching this lol.

  12. While any male that has anything to do with show business or politics is being fired and sued for nothing but allegations that happened 30-40 years ago, Michael Jackson is getting an entire show celebrating his life.
