Top 8 Celebrity Lip Sync Battles, Ever

Anne Hathaway really did that.

If you haven't seen clips of Lip Sync Battle, then you probably haven't been down a YouTube rabbit hole at 3 AM while elbow deep in a family-sized bag of Cheese Nipz.

If that's the case, good for you, you functional member of society. Now follow me to wonderland, motherf*cker.

If you are too wearied by climate despair and capitalism to infer what the show's about from the title, don't worry, we'll explain. The show essentially pits two celebrities against each other in a lip sync battle, wherein both contestants try to outdo each other by performing theatrical, dance-heavy lip sync performances of well-known songs. Created by John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant and hosted by Twitter queen Chrissy Teigen and rapper LL Cool J, the concept was first realized as a segment on the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon before being turned into a hit show on Paramount network (formerly known as Spike).

It's honestly worth checking out the show just to watch Chrissy Teigen do anything, but it's a bonus that there have been some pretty iconic moments throughout the show's five seasons. Here are the top 8 lip sync battles, ever!

Kate Upton

All you need to know.

Full Name: Katherine Elizabeth Upton

Date of Birth: June 10, 1992

Born: St. Joseph, Michigan

Occupation: Model, actress

Status: Married to Justin Verlander (2017)

Children: 1

She's one of today's most sought-after models and this year became a new mom. Kate Upton defines today's taste for something other than rail-thin models and takes her position as role model to heart. Seemingly down-to-earth despite her larger-than-life status, Upton is equal parts girl next door and sex symbol. Whether she's rockin' a bikini on the pages of Sports Illustrated or rocking her newborn to sleep, the Michigan native does it beautifully. Here's more about the model/actress and why fans are head-over-heels for the 5'10" stunner.

Posing Perfectly

Upton is best known for her modeling work. Her gigs are some of the grandest and her face (and figure) have been splashed across the pages of countless magazines. From Guess to Victoria's Secret to David Yurman, the biggest brands choose Upton to represent their goods. As for magazines? Flip through the pages of Vogue, GQ, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Elle, and others and you're sure to find Upton staring back at you. And the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue catapulted Upton into the stratosphere when she was featured in 2011, '12, '13, and '17. A three-time cover model for the mag, Upton's look evidently sells.

Movie Star

Seeing Upton on screen may be even more exciting than photos alone. Catch her in films including Tower Heist, The Other Woman, The Layover, and Wild Man. Good looks paired with a knack for acting is silver screen gold. Look out Cameron!

Playing the Field

Upton is married to baseball player Justin Verlander. They wed in 2017 and earlier this year announced they were expecting. The couple had a baby girl in November '18.

Kate Upton is Pregnant!

Expecting Her First Child with Justin Verlander

26-year-old Kate Upton is about to go from model to mama. It has been reported that the stunning supermodel is expecting her first child with her handsome hubby of eight months, baseball player Justin Verlander. Looks like he hit a "home run!"

The beachy blonde beauty posted a pretty pic on her Instagram account on Saturday to deliver the exciting news to her fans. A succinct #PregnantinMiami@justinverlander 🌞❤️ was all it took for the media to instantly react, fans to congratulate the expecting couple, and the "baby bump" bonanza to begin.

According to US Weekly, the delighted dad-to-be raved, "You're going to be the most amazing Mom!! I can't wait to start this new journey with you! You're the most thoughtful, loving, caring, and strong woman I've ever met! I'm so proud that our little one is going to be raised in this world by a woman like you! I love you so much."

Not to mention the fortune this fetus will be gaining in good genes.

If you live under a rock and have no clue who Kate Upton is, first of all, find another rock with internet access. Secondly, here's a little background. "Katherine Elizabeth Upton is an American model and actress. Upton was named the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Rookie of the Year following her appearance in the magazine in 2011, and was the cover model for the 2012, 2013 and 2017 issues. She was also the subject of the 100th-anniversary Vanity Fair cover. Upton has also appeared in the films Tower Heist (2011), The Other Woman (2014) and The Layover (2017)."

You may have seen her intoxicating image in ads for Sam Edelman, Victoria's Secret, Express, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, David Yurman, Guess, Garage, and Dooney & Bourke too. Her amazing all-American good looks, super-curvy figure, killer smile, and blonde bombshell-ness make her a standout, proving "model thin" is no longer in. Or at least there is room for a body like hers. And aside from SI, Upton has glamorously graced the pages of GQ (naturally), Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Elle, LOVE, Mademoiselle, and other top-notch fashion mags. Her look is undeniably attractive, promotable, profitable, and only gets better shoot after shoot. Surely her doting husband agrees.

Upton and Verlander tied the knot on Nov. 4, 2017, "in an ultra-posh wedding in Italy — just days after the baseball pitcher helped the Houston Astros score their first-ever World Series victory," as described by People magazine. Sure was a lucky year for that son-of-a-gun.

So, we may not see Upton posing for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue for a while, unless they start to feature models in maternity wear. But a one-piece and a onesie? Maybe after she delivers, the mag will want her first pics as "mom."

Congrats to the happy couple and their growing little family. We can't wait to meet this cutie.
