Your Dream Of Seeing Ellen Lip Sync To ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ Has Finally Come True

Ellen DeGeneres Tonight Show lip sync battle

Ellen DeGeneres stopped by The Tonight Show last night to face off against Jimmy Fallon in another one of his famous lip sync battles. I'm used to Jimmy's guests totally wiping the floor with him, but I have to say that I found this match-up to be pretty even. Both competitors gave great performances, but let's face it, when one of those performances involves Ellen DeGeneres lip syncing to Rihanna's “Bitch Better Have My Money,” you're pretty much required to hand the win to her on a silver platter. Judge Justin Timberlake agreed.

Ellen and Jimmy start out with some more low-key songs, with Jimmy opting for The Killers' “Mr. Brightside” and Ellen giving a down-to-earth (she's literally on the floor) performance of “Do You Know Where You're Going To” by Diana Ross. The second round is where things get really fun. Jimmy performs Silento's “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae),” with some great moves to match. Then the grand finale is of course Ellen's take on RiRi. I don't know why, but Ellen + “Bitch Better Have My Money” = magic. Maybe it's because her talk show persona is so sunshine and rainbows.

Can we take a second to talk about what a moment lip syncing is having? Not only did Jimmy's “Lip Sync Battle” segment get a spin-off series on Spike, but a bunch of celebrities and normals alike are delighting the public with Dubsmash videos. Pretty soon none of our voices will be our own. I do want to mention, however, that I don't believe Justin Timberlake has done a lip sync battle yet. What's that about? He does everything else with Jimmy Fallon, so why not this? Are they saving it to be used in an emergency? Maybe they're just afraid the Internet will literally blow up over it and they don't want to cause damage. Very considerate.
