Jimmy Fallon is a saint. You may say what you wish about the man’s SNL career or his show now, but he gave us all the gem that is Lip Sync Battle, and for that, we will always love him. But as we’re between seasons now, you may be itching for your fix of celebs dancing around to ridiculous songs in beautiful costumes and with full back-up dancing teams. So, we put together a list to help you (and ourselves) out. These four shows have everything you loved from the series and should hold you over until the next season premiere.
IF YOU LIKE ALMOST-LIVE MUSIC, WATCH HIT RECORD
The numbers on Lip Sync Battle are the result of an intense collaboration. Get a glimpse at what it takes to collaborate on something big with HITRECORD, the people’s variety show put together by Joseph Gordon Levitt. It’s charming and the ultimate cure to any creativity rut. You can watch it on Netflix and HITRECORD. (Photo via HitRecord)
IF YOU LIKE CELEBS SINGING, WATCH LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN
Much like Jimmy Fallon, James Corden is a night show host who loves singing. And, also like Fallon, he brings celebs onto his show to dance and sing and embarrass themselves for our entertainment. We love TV. Watch it now on CBS and YouTube. (Photo via CBS)
IF YOU LIKE CHRISSY TEIGEN, WATCH FABLIFE
Let’s all be perfectly honest here: One of the best parts of Lip Sync is watching Chrissy Teigen jam it out from the DJ booth. For more of her spot-on reactions, watch FabLife on ABC or YouTube and get Teigen’s advice before you decide what your style is going to be this season. (Photo via ABC)
IF YOU LIKE LIP SYNC BATTLES, WATCH LIP SYNC BATTLE UK
Sometimes all you want is more of the same — and we don’t blame you. If all you want is more celebs rocking and lip sync-ing out, tune into the same thing, but done in a British accent. You’re welcome, mate. It’s streaming now from Channel 5 and YouTube. (Photo via Unreality TV)
