Watch Joseph Gordon-Levitt Perform a Janet Jackson Classic on Lip Sync Battle

1 minute read

Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn’t just the guy you daydream about bringing home to meet your mom for Passover. He’s also the guy who helped popularize the tradition of celebrities lip syncing on TV. (Two years ago he and his very expressive eyebrows performed “Tiny Dancer” and “Super Bass” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The clip racked up more than 50 million views.)

The popular Jimmy Fallon segment is now a full-fledged show on Spike, and this week, JGL appeared to show off his finely-tuned lip sync skills once again. Dressed in drag, he performed Janet Jackson’s 1989 hit “Rhythm Nation.” He also showed off some pretty excellent dance moves. Who knows? Maybe he’ll show off those same moves at the Bar Mitzvah of your imaginary son, Jacob Gordon-Levitt.

JGL faced off against actor Anthony Mackie, who did a decent job tackling MC Hammer’s “2 Legit 2 Quit.” But we all know your future husband was the real star of the show.
