Jimmy Fallon and Tom Cruise Face Off in Lip Sync Battle

Jimmy Fallon is probably most loved by us at CDJ for his musical impressions (like this tribute to seesaws with James Taylor, or this touching performance as Neil Young with the real Neil Young) but the Tonight Show host’s lip sync skills are a close second, especially when he faces off with giant movie stars like Tom Cruise.

And while Fallon put forth a valiant effort on the Rolling Stones‘ “Undercover of the Night” during the pair’s lip sync battle this week, we think Tom Cruise takes the cake with his version of Meat Loaf‘s “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.”

But we’ll admit, despite Cruise’s spot-on performances, we’re a little disappointed we didn’t actually get to see a Risky Business re-enactment when we heard those first notes of Bob Seger‘s “Old Time Rock and Roll.”

Check out the whole segment below, including the pair’s lip sync duet finale to the Righteous Brothers’ “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling.”
