Tom Cruise takes on Jimmy Fallon for awesome lip-sync battle

Jimmy Fallon learns why lip-sync battling Tom Cruise is ‘Risky Business’.

We haven’t seen Tom Cruise’s lip-syncing skills since he was dancing in his underwear in Risky Business, but judging by his performance on Monday’s Tonight Show, he’s still got some moves.

Either way, his performance of The Weeknd’s ‘Can’t Feel My Face” and the Meatloaf classic ‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light’ are very much up to scratch. It’s been a minute since we’ve seen Tom Cruise in action, but has he makes his promo rounds for the latest Mission: Impossible movie, he’s participating in the usual talk-show stunts, like Jimmy Fallon’s always hilarious Lip Sync Battle.

Talk about bad timing: During their “The Tonight Show” appearance last week, “Wet Hot American Summer” creators David Wain and Michael Showalter (well, just Wain) really, really wanted to participate in one of the show’s famed lip-sync battles. (They ended up having to settle for a brief “lip-sing battle” to the Doobie Brothers’ “What a Fool Believes.”) If Wain and Showalter had just stuck around over the weekend, their wish would have come true, because host Jimmy Fallon wound up staging a real lip-sync battle on Monday with his guest, “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation” star Tom Cruise. The actor was going to pull an ace out of his sleeve as the opening to Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” began playing, serving as an homage to his famous Risky Business scene. And while Fallon asked “Why am I even trying?” before taking the stage for a version of The Rolling Stones “Undercover of the Night,” he actually did have moves like Jagger.

Recalling the famous scene in Top Gun , Cruise and Fallon finished the set by performing a lip-syncing duet of The Righteous Brothers’ “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’.” Classic. You’ll have to watch their second round of performances to see who won: Cruise or Fallon — or the audience member who found herself serenaded by both men!
