Joseph Gordon-Levitt KILLED it on Lip Sync Battle and the YouTube already has over a million+ views and counting. Wonder how he got those moves down SO perfectly? Here’s his Facebook post on how it all happened.
“Don’t call it a comeback! Lip Sync Battle. Anthony Mackie as MC Hammer. Me as Janet Jackson.
First thing I did after deciding to do Rhythm Nation was email my ol’ friend Jenna Dewan Tatum. She danced on stage with Janet herself, did this song every night on tour. She hooked me up with two friends of hers, Alison Faulk and Teresa Espinosa, who were both dancers on that same tour. They were awesome teachers. They even got in touch with the music video’s original choreographer, Anthony Thomas, who came over, polished my moves, and told me all about the intended spirit of The Nation. It was really a better prep processes than I probably deserved. Huge thanks to all!”
And then a plug for his new movie…
“Oh yeah, and go see THE NIGHT BEFORE!”
Both of their performances below. No contest. Watch.
