What’s Worth Watching: Lip Sync Battle’s Knockout Punch
Lip Sync Battle, “Mike Tyson & Terry Crews” (Thursday, April 23, 10/9c, Spike)
The former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world steps into a slightly different kind of ring on tonight’s episode of Spike’s runaway hit Lip Sync Battle. Boxing legend Mike Tyson goes mano a mano with Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and ultimate pec-flexer Terry Crews in a fight for lip sync glory. In past episodes, we’ve seen Anne Hathaway ride a wrecking ball while performing Miley Cyrus’s smash hit, John Krasinski do his best Tina Turner impression with “Proud Mary” and The Rock introduce us to his take on Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” But tonight, Tyson pulls out all the stops with back up dancers and pyrotechnics for his performance of Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It.” But does he have what it takes to take home this championship belt? Let the battle begin!
