The Daily Heat Index: Lauren Cohan Trades Her Machete for a Mic in a New ‘Lip Sync Battle’ Preview
Plus, Jennifer Lopez kills at ‘Carpool Karaoke,’ and John Cena is a master at ‘Sticky Balls.’
Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:
Machete for a Mic
Lauren Cohan may have left the zombie-ridden streets of Alexandria, but that doesn’t mean she’s not up for a fight. The stunning starlet of The Walking Dead will go up against co-star Sonequa Martin-Green on this week’s all-new episode of Lip Sync Battle, and by the looks of it, it’s going to be a serious fight to the finish. While we already saw Sonequa’s Silento-inspired performance of the hit “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae),” Lauren is seen here going the more classic route with her first routine, rocking out to Night Ranger’s “Sister Christian.” Watch the two of the sexiest cast members duke it out this Thursday at 10PM ET before they return to their home turf for The Walking Dead‘s season finale on Sunday (to face the arrival of big bad, Negan).
J.Lo and J.Co
Can you imagine anything better than a car ride with Jennifer Lopez? Men around the world lived vicariously through the Late Late Show host last night as he took the sexy 46-year old singer and Shades of Blue star around the streets of California. In the 13-minute segment, she manages to sing some of her classics, talk about her (possibly) insured booty, her 5 proposals, and how to properly touch your face in a music video. To be honest, she could have talked about her favorite type of cheese and we’d be hooked. It’s after Corden takes her phone and sends an semi-sexual text to none other than Leo DiCaprio, who uses the word ‘boo-boo’ in his reply, that we realize Jenny from the Block is just a regular, awkward iPhone user like the rest of us. Sort of…not really…okay, nevermind. She’s goddamn JLo.
Cena Loves Sticky Balls
If you thought pro-wrestler turned phenomenal comedic actor John Cena stopped by The Tonight Show to bake with Jimmy Fallon, please stop while you’re ahead. The host of American Grit instead faced off against the late night show in a round of ‘Sticky Balls,’ a game where the two tried to throw balls at each other while wearing velcro suits. The two assumed the position and began chucking the red dots like they were back in elementary school for an aggressive game of dodgeball (something, we assume, Cena would dominate at). Watch the two go balls out below and see who came out victorious in this newest Tonight Show game.
