The Anna Kendrick vs. John Krasinski lip-sync battle has been one of the show’s highly anticipated episodes since the trailer came out in March. The long wait is over, as Spike TV airs Anna Kendrick and John Krasinski’s episode in “Lip Sync Battle.” Read on to learn more about this scoop.
The 51-second clip titled, “John Krasinski vs. Anna Kendrick on Lip Sync Battle” on YouTube has already garnered more than four million hits since the trailer premiered in March. In the first clip, Krasinski can be seen lip-syncing to a slow version of Tina Turner’s “Rolling On The River.” The “Something Borrowed” star then strips his suit off to reveal a silver sequined dress with fringes as the beat livens up.
“Pitch Perfect 2” star Anna Kendrick, on the other hand, lip-synced and danced her way to Jennifer Lopez’s single, “Booty.” JLo makes a surprise appearance on the show and Krasinski screams, “What is happening!”
From the first clip alone, fans were already anticipating to watch Krasinski and Kendrick’s epic battle, but Spike TV released a brand new clip, which seems to show another one of Kendrick’s moves. Shall we call it “Kendrick’s Tricks” now?
In the new 34-second clip, the “Pitch Perfect 2” star is lip-syncing and dancing along to One Direction’s “Steal My Girl.” When the song hits the chorus, the screen shows no other than Krasinski’s wife, Emily Blunt.
The screen plays a series of Blunt’s photos with hearts all over the photos. Kendrick points to Krasinski, who appears very entertained as he laughs his heart out. Apparently, Kendrick has more than a presentation on her sleeves, as she takes off her jacket and reveals a custom shirt bearing her photo with Blunt inside a heart.
Spike TV has already played “Lip Sync Battle” episodes between Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway, John Legend and Common, and Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne Johnson. Upcoming episodes of the show will feature battles between Stephen Merchant, Terrence Howard, Queen Latifah, Will Arnett, Terry Crews, and Alison Brie.
As previously reported, Spike TV has already ordered additional episodes following its ten episodes, thanks to the show’s success even before it has begun.
The complete episode airs on April 16 at 10 p.m. on Spike TV. Stay tuned on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates.
