Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson does Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off,' Bee Gees on 'Lip Sync Battle'

Posted on

In Furious 7, viewers will see Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson do many incredible, ridiculous things. But unfortunately, his performance in the film is devoid of any lip syncing.

Thankfully, Spike TV has come to the rescue.

In the series premiere for Spike’s Lip Sync BattleThe Tonight Show‘s Jimmy Fallon, who began the lip sync craze on his late night shows, faced off against Johnson.

Johnson came out swinging early, getting down with the sick beat of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”—including the song’s rap breakdown—and cementing an early lead. Fallon came back with Harry Belafonte’s “Jump in the Line.”

The two pulled out all the stops for the second round, where Fallon brought in a full lip-syncing choir for his rendition of Madonna’s “Like a Prayer. And Johnson returned with his best Tony Manero impression while lip syncing to “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees.

Watch Johnson perform Taylor Swift, then check out both of their performances in the final round as they duke it out for the inaugural win.
