Jimmy Fallon's strength as a talk show host has always been his boundless enthusiasm, plus his consistent efforts to put our favorite celebrities in delightfully ridiculous situations. The last Late Night Lip-Sync Battle was a viral sensation. Jimmy took on Stephen Merchant and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as they pretended to sing a series of popular songs that are now forever changed. Will you ever hear "Single Ladies" again without picturing Merchant loping around the stage and shaking it? Doubtful.
We can't wait for the next one, so we're suggesting a few challengers to kill it on stage and then join these guys (and fellow past contestant John Krasinski, whom Fallon credits with the invention of game, along with his wife Emily Blunt) in the Late Night Lip Sync Hall of Fame.
True, Anna Kendrick doesn't have to lip sync anything. The muscially-gifted actress could wipe the floor with her competitors in a straight up singing competition. Still, we'd love to see her channel all her self-deprecating wit and hilarious energy into this contest.
The Breaking Bad star's infectious joy alone could catapault him into the Lip Sync winner's circle.
Damon Wayans, Jr.
Happy Endings is no more, and we miss seeing the hilarious Damon Wayans, Jr. on TV. Also, we could stand to have a little comedy royalty in this talent pool.
Since the first Scary Movie, Mom star Anna Faris is always willing to make a fool out of herself to get a laugh. We wouldn't mind a surprise duet with husband Chris Pratt either.

Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games series isn't the happiest set of books filling the YA section of your local bookstore. The newly released track list for the second film in the series, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire , shows that living in a post-apocolyptic dystopia is probably a tad depressing. The soundtrack showcases the perfect mix of tracks to bob your head to while watching children murder other children in brutal combat. (But It’s also a love Story!) So what tunes are the denizens of The Capitol listening to?
1. "Atlas" – Coldplay2. "Silhouettes" – Of Monsters and Men3. "Elastic Heart" – Sia (ft. The Weeknd & Diplo)4. "Lean" – The National5. "We Remain" – Christina Aguilera6. "Devil May Cry" – The Weeknd7. "Who We Are" – Imagine Dragons8. "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" – Lorde9. "Gale Song" – The Lumineers10. "Mirror" – Ellie Goulding11. "Capital Letter" – Patti Smith12. "Shooting Arrows At The Sky" – Santigold13. "Place For Us" – Mikky Ekko14. "Lights" – Phantogram15. "Angel On Fire" – Antony and the Johnsons
We’ve already heard the haunting "Atlas" by Coldplay, which will serve as the film's official theme. The soundtrack contains a bevy of eclectic musical talent including tortured R&B crooner The Weeknd, equally tourtured indie rockers The National, also tortured pop star Lorde (I'm sensing a pattern here), and Christina Aguilera. It seems like the music of the film will be honing in on themes such as teenaged angst, loneliness, and what it's like to be a genie in a bottle.

Christina Aguilera has recorded a new song, We Remain, for the The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack, which will also feature new tracks from Coldplay, Of Monsters and Men, The National and punk icon Patti Smith.
Pop superstar Cher is eager to return to the big screen in a remake of Rosalind Russell's comedy drama Auntie Mame. The Believe hitmaker, who won an Oscar for her role in 1987's Moonstruck, reveals she's obsessed with the 1958 film, about an orphan who is sent to live with his free-spirited aunt, and the singer/actress would love to tackle the title role made famous by Russell.
She tells Us Weekly magazine, "I have watched the 1958 film Auntie Mame, with Rosalind Russell, at least 100 times. I would love to play that part in a remake."
Cher, 67, has only signed up for three acting jobs since 1999, including a leading role alongside Christina Aguilera in 2010 musical Burlesque.
Kaley Cuoco's sister stepped out of the actress' shadow as she appeared on U.S. TV talent show The Voice on Monday (23Sep13). The Big Bang Theory star featured alongside her little sister Briana in an episode of the singing contest, which features Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine as judges.
In the clip, host Carson Daly gives Briana the good news that she has won a chance to audition for the judges.
Meanwhile, Kaley's Emmy-winning co-star Jim Parsons has admitted he's a big fan of Briana, telling Access Hollywood, "She is great (at) a lot of things. We give Kaley a lot of hell like, 'Oh so finally the world is going to see the really talented Cuoco!' Which is not true - we just want to give her s**t!"
"I'm a big micromanager. I'm a stickler about organisation: Everything needs a place, a purpose... I think every woman should relax and allow herself to be pleased in the bedroom. It's the one place I can let go." Christina Aguilera likes her man to take control in the bedroom.
Jack Osbourne contemplated quitting U.S. reality show Dancing With The Stars on the eve of Monday's (16Sep13) big premiere because he was convinced he would never compare to his celebrity competitors. Family matriarch Sharon Osbourne reveals her son, who suffers with Multiple Sclerosis, believed he had made a huge mistake by signing on for his dancing debut after sitting in on practice sessions for fellow contestants including Valerie Harper, Elizabeth Berkley, Amber Riley, Christina Milian and Leah Remini.
Jack eventually decided to face up to his fears and hit the dancefloor for the season premiere on Monday - and Sharon admits she was wracked with nerves as she cheered him on from the studio audience because of her son's pre-show confession.
Appearing on her U.S. daytime show The Talk on Tuesday (17Sep13), Sharon said, "I swear to you I felt physically sick before he started to dance because it's something he's never ever done and it wasn't until the day before that he actually got into the studio, out of the rehearsal room into the physical filming studio, and saw everybody else dance, because they watch everyone else dance.
"He texts me and says, 'Mum, I've done the wrong thing here, I can never compete, I've done the wrong thing.' And so I'm like, 'Oh, my goodness', and then he said that day he messed up his routine, so I was like, 'Oh no, it's gonna be just uncomfortable for him.' And then when he came out and he started (dancing) and... he was like, cruising, and I was like, (relieved)... Not just for Jack, but for all the people who have never danced before, it's really brave."
Jack had no need to worry - he and his professional partner Cheryl Burke impressed the judges with their foxtrot, scoring a respectable total of 23 out of 30.
Pop superstar Christina Aguilera struggled to contain her emotions during a recent charity trip to a Rwandan refugee camp, insisting it was "one of the most difficult moments" of her visit. The Beautiful hitmaker travelled to the war-torn nation in June (13) in her role as a spokesperson for Yum! Brands' World Hunger Relief effort, and she spent some of her time meeting those battling severe poverty and serving food to children.
The mum-of-one admits the tour of Rwanda really opened her eyes and made her more determined to speak out to draw attention to the extent of the hunger problems suffered around the world.
She tells the Associated Press, "It's so sad to think there's nothing that sets any of us apart. And when you go into the field, you really see that and feel that we're all one in the same, it's just we're born under different circumstances, and it's sad and I don't understand why, but I feel what I feel and I did what I can."
Aguilera was particularly moved by her visit to a refugee camp, which she claims was "one of the most difficult moments" of the mission.
She adds, "They had to escape everything and everybody they knew and loved, and it's just a lot to really open yourself up and feel all that. And you just want to help out in whatever way that you can, and obviously I get emotional about it when talking about it, but I think it's important to feel those things."
The singer appears in a new public service announcement (PSA) for the World Hunger Relief campaign, which features her song Light up the Sky.
