Terry Crews clearly was going for the win last night (April 23) on Lip Sync Battle and knew the perfect way to do so was to reference his iconic moment in White Chicks.
Yes in his battle against Mike Tyson for Lip Sync supremacy he knew that if he did Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” it would be nearly impossible to beat.
Crews sat down at that piano in an all-white suit—no shirt and no white face, luckily—to pretend to tickle those ivories and with all his heart mouth Carlton’s immortal words: “Making my way downtown/Walking fast/Faces pass/And I’m home bound.”
Crews then topped it all off by doing a jacket-less interpretive ribbon dance that included a lot of spinning. The crowd was just eating it all up.
Crews said the performance had him getting in touch with his feminine side, which he owed to his wife and daughter.
How could Tyson compete with this gentle giant?
