Tiffany Haddish is the new queen of Lip Sync Battle after defeating Jimmy Fallon during an appearance at The Tonight Show on Thursday (October 25) in New York City.
The Emmy-winning actress performed “The Lady of Rage’s” Afro Puffs for her first song and she climaxed the segment with “Get Up (I Feel Like a) James Brown’s Sex Machine .”
Jimmy performed “Groove is in the Heart” by Deee-Lite and “Psycho” by Post Malone. There were no doubts after the performances about who won, obviously, it was Tiffany.
As usual, they each performed twice without telling the other which songs they had chosen. Fallon kicked off the rehearsal of Deee-Lite’s “Groove Is in the Heart” 90s dance classic.
It took a lot of courage for an adult man to move as Fallon did, but it was not up to Tiffany Haddish’s confident approach. “When I was a child in Los Angeles, this artist was one of my favorite MCs, and she still is today,” says 38-year-old actress Nobody’s Fool. “Her name is The Lady of Rage, and the name of this song is Afro Puffs.”
Even Jimmy Fallon could not believe how convincing Haddish was. Look at his face!
“Really? He asked. “You’re hard on your Afro Puff.”
“We’re going there gangsta, baby! Haddish told him. “We go, gangsta, baby!”
Coincidentally, Jimmy Fallon was going to” get gangsta “for his next song: Post Malone’s” Psycho. At first, it was simple, but Fallon increased the bet when he stopped the song to apply temporary tattoos that mimicked those of the rapper. Impressed, Haddish asked, “Impromptu tattoos, huh?”
Tiffany Haddish looked like a player, and she was not going to fall without a fight. “For my last song, I had to go further, so I decided to go with Soul’s godfather, Mr. James Brown. Can we make it look like an old-fashioned TV? Like the first time people saw James Brown perform, “she asked a cameraman, who offered him a black and white filter.” Thank you. This song is called “Sex Machine”. ”
The actress channeled Brown’s mind, mimicking her famous footwork (and even doing The Robot, at random). In the end, Fallon admitted his defeat. “Oh my God! He marveled. “Tiffany Haddish, everyone! The undisputed winner! The champion! Tiffany Haddish! ”
TIFFANY HADDISH, MELISSA MCCARTHY AND ELISABETH MOSS IN THE FIRST PICTURE OF ‘THE KITCHEN’
Not all comic book adaptations come from Marvel or DC. The film that reunites to Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss, “The Kitchen”, is based on the series of cómics of the same name, of the seal of Vertigo, written by Ollie Masters and illustrated by Ming Doyle.
Screenwriter Andrea Berloff (‘Straight Outta Compton’) writes the film and debuts for the first time behind the camera and works with a cast that includes Common, Domhnall Gleeson and Margo Martindale in supporting roles.
Both the ‘The Kitchen’ comics and the film adaptation are carried out in Hell’s Kitchen in the 1970s and in the vicinity of criminal gangs. The three big bosses are arrested by the FBI, with which their wives will be in charge of running the family business in their absence. The three women are even better at their new occupation than their partners. EW has shown the first official photo of the film.
Tiffany Hadd Challenges James Brown in the legendary performance
Jimmy Fallon had no chance on Thursday in the “Lip Sync Battle”, because Tiffany Haddish was ready with James Brown jams and moves
The “Tight Show” sketch began with the Fallon version of the show’s “Groove Is in the Heart” by the band Deee-Lite. The choice was odd, but it allowed Fallon to make some deeply extravagant and choppy dance moves, which seemed to be a pleasure for the crowd. Haddish followed with a passionate interpretation of “Acro Puffs” by Lady of Rage.
Fallon followed that with another mediocre effort, this time covering the “Psycho” of Post Malone and facing the famous facial tattoos of the singer. It was no match for Haddish, who returned with a scorching version of “Brown Machine” by James Brown, which went from color to black and white.
