Shaq's Lip Sync Battle Against Jimmy Fallon Launches an Ingenious Tradition
As Jimmy Fallon took his show to Florida's Universal Orlando Resort for a week of entertainment in honor of the opening of his new ride "Race Through New York," the late night emcee faced off against basketball icon Shaquille O'Neal for a memorable Lip Sync Battle.
While Fallon started things off with a rousing rendition of the classic House of Pain anthem "Jump Around," Shaq upped the ante by performing Bobby Brown's "My Prerogative" with a special guest appearance by none other than Pitbull for a dance extravaganza.
"That's not fair, that's not fair!" the surprised Tonight Show funnyman exclaimed. "I've got to up my game!"
Then, in a move that no one saw coming, Shaq paired up with his opponent—a LSB first—for a duet of "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Elton John for the perfect ending to their showdown.
