Shaquille O'Neal taps Pitbull for crowd-pumping Lip Sync Battle on Tonight Show
Fallon kicked off his Orlando stint with a Lip Sync Battle we'll never forget.
Jimmy Fallon kicked off his Orlando stint for The Tonight Show on Monday with a Lip Sync Battle fans might never forget. After hyping up the audience with House of Pain’s “Jump Around,” his opponent, Shaquille O’Neal, tapped Pitbull for a lip-sync duet of “My Prerogative.”
Donning a special lip-sync headset, Shaq, who stands 7-feet tall, waved his arms around while the 5-foot-7 rapper grooved to the Bobby Brown hit. Pitbull had been scheduled to appear as the musical guest with his “Options” collaborator Stephen Marley, so he was bound to pop up for another bit.
“That’s not fair, that’s not fair, right there!” Fallon shouted. “I’m gonna up my game.” The late-night host then emerged from behind a room divider wearing a costume that was half Ariana Grande and half John Legend to perform their cover of “Beauty and the Beast” from the live-action Disney fairytale. “This song is a duet, but I don’t need another person,” he said.
Fallon brought The Tonight Show to Orlando in celebration of Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon, a new attraction opening at Universal Orlando Resort this Thursday. Among his star-studded guest lineup is Blake Shelton on Tuesday night, Dwayne Johnson on Wednesday night, and former Tonight Show host Jay Leno on Thursday.
