- Late Night Antics April 29
Whoever on Jimmy Fallon's staff came up with the lip-sync battle really hit on a crowd-pleaser. You can hear it in the audience, and the enthusiasm translates through your screen at home (or work — we won't tell). On Monday night's Tonight Show, Fallon staged his latest lip-sync-off against Emma Stone. There's some good dramatic tension and some great lip-syncing, but half the fun is watching which song out of the past few decades Fallon and his guest select for their performances. Fallon rocks Styx's "Mr. Roboto." Stone absolutely nails Blues Traveler's "Hook" (a song I'd sort of forgotten about, too). But neither of those wins the contest. --Peter Weber
