If the world has learned anything from late night shows, it's that we love to see celebrity talent just as much as we like to see them make fools of themselves. The game of competing in a lip-sync of famous songs was created by actors Stephen Merchant, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt for their personal parties. The game found its way to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and was later pitched by the group as its own show. With the second season set to begin on January 7, lets take a look at the top 5 battles of 2015.

5. Anne Hathaway's 'Wrecking Ball' vs. Emily Blunt's 'Piece of My Heart'

There's no denying that Emily Blunt did an excellent job channeling Janis Joplin, and she pulled off the rose-tinted shades like a pro, but I'm still looking for undeniable proof that Anne Hathaway didn't switch places with Miley Cyrus when we weren't looking.

4. John Krasinski's 'Bye Bye Bye' vs. Anna Kendrick's 'Steal My Girl'

If there was ever to be an N-Sync reunion, I'd want to see John Krasinski on the stage breaking it down right along with them. His 'marionette' act was just as impressive as his early 2000s dance moves, but Anna Kendrick made things personal when she declared her love for John's wife Emily Blunt.

3. Julianne Hough's 'I Just Had Sex' vs. Derek Hough's 'Chandelier'

The professional dancers took sibling rivalry to a whole new level. Derek definitely put as much into his performance as he did into pulling off Sia's hair, but it's arguable that no one has ever committed to something as much as Julianne did to the hit song by The Lonely Island.

2. Terry Crews's 'A Thousand Miles' vs. Mike Tyson's 'Push It'

I really thought I would have a lot to say about this one, I really did. But I've watched it about 30 times now and there are only two things to say about the match-up: we now know FOR SURE that 'A Thousand Miles' is Terry Crews's jam, and I'm still not sure how Mike Tyson got into his stretchy pants.

1. Anthony Mackie's '2 Legit 2 Quit' vs. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Rhythm Nation'

I honestly though Anthony Mackie had this round in the bag with his spot-on emulation of MC Hammer, but then Joseph Gordon-Levitt walked out with a ponytail, lipstick, and buckets of talent. Seriously, go watch the original video for 'Rhythm Nation': Gordon-Levitt and Janet Jackson could be twins.
