Watch this magnificent lip sync battle for the ages between Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake, and Ellen DeGeneres.

The competition was fierce during Wednesday's Tonight Show, as host Jimmy Fallon and guest Ellen DeGeneres faced off in a Lip Sync Battle that started off slow and ended with DeGeneres making us all question why she is a talk show host and not a Rihanna impersonator.

With Fallon's usual partner in crime Justin Timberlake acting as judge, Fallon gave a literal interpretation of "Mr. Brightside" by The Killers (he mimed smoking a cigarette and choking on alibis) and then impressed everyone by showing he can Whip and Nae Nae (those are dances, people over 25). Alas, the night belonged to DeGeneres, who sat on the floor for Diana Ross' "Do You Know Where You're Going To?" and then channeled Rihanna for a bravado-filled rendition of "Bitch Better Have My Money."
