WATCH: Melissa McCarthy Slays Lip Sync Battle with Epic Performance of 'Colors of the Wind' on the Tonight Show
McCarthy reigned victorious against late night host Fallon
The actress shut it down during Monday’s Tonight Show bit while promoting her latest movie The Boss, taking the expectations of celebrity lip sync appearances to the next level.
“I don’t get nervous a lot, I’m pretty freaked out about crushing you,” McCarthy, 45, said to host Jimmy Fallon before gracing the stage.
And that she did. Just a warning to future participants: using glitter and confetti only ups your game.
Fallon, 41, kicked off round 1 with his rendition of Melanie’s “Brand New Key” but it was McCarthy’s DMX’s “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” that left everyone speechless, even The Roots were blown away!
“So I’m obviously going to close with a Pocahontas song track,” she preluded.
The mother of two channeled Pocahontas (wind storm and all!) to belt out Alan Menken’s “Colors of the Wind” made famous by the 1995 Disney animated film, and had everyone in stitches.
The Boss hits theaters April 8.
