Michael Phelps Performed An Eminem Song On Live TV And Phelps-Faced So Hard
Just when we thought Michael Phelps couldn't get any cooler, he proved us all wrong and performed an Eminem song on live TV on Sunday night.
Is there anything you can't do, Michael?!
The Olympic medalist showcased an unknown knack for "rapping" during "Lip Sync Battle" hosted by LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen, which also featured this year's Rio all stars Simone Biles and Aly Raisman who lip synced to Sia's "Cheap Thrills."
During the show, Phelps lip synced to Eminem's "Lose Yourself," complete with a hoodie and backup dancers, recreating the grungy "8 Mile" scene we all know and love.
Needless to say, he nailed the performance, and Phelps-faced HARD.
Regardless of his stiff competition, which also included John Legend, Terry Crews and Olivia Munn, the 31-year-old swimming champ took home the medal once again.
Are we surprised? Nope.
According to ET Online, Phelps already has a place picked out for his new, non-Olympic lip sync award. He said,
This is awesome. I know just where to put this.
Hopefully he'll be hanging the new medal next to the rest of his golds. At least he knows he's got rapping to fall back on in the future if he gets bored of swimming.
