Move over, Tamar Braxton. There’s a new celebrity who’s totally killing Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation,” but it’s not who you’d think.
Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt dressed up in a little drag for Spike’s Lip Sync Battle and took his performance to new heights. Not only did Joe wear Janet’s iconic outfit, but he werked out that choreography.
Both host LL Cool J and the audience were impressed by his lip sync skills. Anthony Mackie also did a rendition of MC Hammer’s “2 Legit 2 Quit,” but it didn’t hold a candle to Joseph’s “Rhythm Nation.” Catch his performance up top at the 2:00 mark. Oh, and Joseph:
