Rule number one of dance battles: Never challenge Jennifer Lopez to dance battles.
Because here's the thing: She's JLo. It doesn't matter how good your moves are when you go up against JLo. Her sheer JLo-ness will trump whatever you bring to the dance floor every time.
Jimmy Fallon learned this lesson the hard way on Wednesday night's episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."
The name of the game was "Dance Battle" (appropriately). Jimmy and Jennifer took turns drawing prompts out of the "Velvety Dance Bag," and then had to make up a brand new dance move on the spot, based on the prompt.
Playing the role of gracious host, Jimmy volunteered to be the first one to face this humiliation.
All things considered, his dance interpretation of "putting on skinny jeans" was pretty spot on.
But then it was JLo's turn.
JLo was tasked with "washing machine on spin cycle."
And let me just say, she rose to the challenge magnificently.
After some sexy hip gyrations, she made Willow Smith proud by whipping her hair back and forth.
(Though she might have whipped it TOO good because she actually hurt her neck.)
But still, between the first two dances, JLo was the clear winner.
Both Jimmy and JLo knew it, too. Jimmy exclaimed, "The best ever!" while JLo humbly observed, "I think I'm winning. I'm just saying!"
Next up, Jimmy did an extremely accurate dance impression of "walking on a moving bus."
But then JLo whipped out her "hot cowboy."
Even though the dance moves weren't the greatest, it was still JLo, and therefore still very hot.
Finally, Jimmy and Jennifer ended the competition not as a competition, but as a collaboration.
They came together to dance out "seeing yourself on the jumbotron" as a team.
And let me tell you guys, team work is a beautiful thing.
(JLo still won, though.)
Like I said: Never challenge Jennifer Lopez to a dance battle.
