Hold your horses! Two of the most influential daytime talk show hosts in Hollywood are currently battling each other out in an epic rap battle on YouTube entitled “Oprah vs Ellen.”

While it isn’t exactly them, the rap battle showcases a couple of look-alikes of the two talk show queens: Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres. If you’ve ever gone against your friends with the same debate in mind, you’ll be pleased to know that you’re not alone in this.

It seems like our friends over at “Epic Rap Battles of History” have gotten together to round up some of the positives and negatives of the two talk show hosts. The couple debated with one another on their different styles of hosting their TV show in the hopes of determining who the better one is. In a few instances, the battle talked about Ellen’s dancing and featuring cats on her show, whereas Oprah proudly displayed the time she was a nominated actress. At some point in the battle, random names were included such as Tom Cruise, Deepak and even Rachael Ray.

“Epic Rap Battles of History” is a YouTube parody series by Nice Peter and Epic Lloyd. For years, the series has been a big hit on the website and is currently hosting their fourth season. Playing the role of Oprah Winfrey is November Christine, an actress/singer who has just made her debut on YouTube with this role. Meanwhile, Lauren Flans impersonated Ellen DeGeneres and even flanked her for her crazy dancing on her TV show.

This isn’t the first time that Lauren Flans has been involved with ERB. As a matter of fact, she has written four past episodes of the YouTube series — Steve Jobs vs Bill Gates, Michael Jackson vs Elvis Presley, Cleopatra vs Marilyn Monroe, and Mr. T vs Mister Rogers. This particular episode, “Oprah vs Ellen,” however, is the first time she has appeared on the show.
