On paper, a battle between former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson and muscle factory/actor Terry Crews would be a title bout on the level of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao. However, instead of stepping into the ring, the two behemoths had a showdown Thursday night in a much-friendlier arena: Lip Sync Battle. In the opening round, Iron Mike busted out with the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction," while the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor countered with Run-d.M.C.'s "Sucker MCs."
While Tyson was likely the crowd favorite going in – the fleet-footed boxer does an admirable impersonation »
On Thursday's episode of Lip Sync Battle, Terry Crews faced off against the legendary Mike Tyson - and they were not messing around. While Mike showed off some impressive dance moves while rapping to Salt-n-Pepa's "Push It" in leather pants, Terry went down a slower, more classical route. He started by sitting down at a piano while singing Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles," a song he originally performed in the 2004 movie White Chicks. Terry then got very into his performance, stripping off his white blazer to show his bare chest before dancing with a pink ribbon. Watch the epic battle above, then relive Anna Kendrick and John Krasinski's episode from last week. »
You knew the end before you started, but as they say, it's all about the journey. So come, join us on this week's post-match analysis of Lip Sync Battle, which pit Terry Crews against Mike Tyson in the most uneven match-up ever. Terry Crews is a masterful performer. He's precise and practiced — fresh off a lip-sync medley performed at the TV Land Awards. (Yes, that's a thing.) Iron Mike Tyson never stood a chance. This was a lamb walking into the abattoir: Welcome to the slaughterhouse.Battle 1: Mike Tyson's "Satisfaction" vs. Terry Crews's "Sucker Mc" Why are Mike Tyson's pants so tight? This is all we can think about as Mike gets too close to the audience members and rubs the inside of his thigh. It's all we can see when he does that little bunny hop. He's making a classic rookie mistake, which is that »

If you're still sobbing from Grey's Anatomy's shocking ending Thursday night, let Terry Crews console you and wipe your tears away with an epic performance of Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles." The Who Wants to Be a Millionaire host appeared on Lip Sync Battle to take on Mike Tyson, and chose Carlton's piano-infused classic. Wearing a white blazer over his bare chest, Crews channels his inner teenybopper and absolutely slays the 2000 hit. Lip syncing, twirling and dancing with ribbon wands, Crews shows off his best moves and even co-host Chrissy Teigen can't help but join in on the ribbon dancing. The crowd obviously eats up his performance with a spoon, smiling and singing along »
The actor gave an interview to Hot97, the world’s most popular hip-hop station this week, where he talked about the film, and it sounds awesome, and very, very, Scorsese.
Terrence Winter (who worked with Scorsese on the brilliant The Wolf Of Wall Street) will write the screenplay.
The interview was video taped and you can hear Foxx describe in great detail the film’s opening scene. He seems to have Tyson’s voice down already. Can’t wait.
Watch it below.

It took just two rounds to decide the outcome between former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson and hard-hitting “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Terry Crews on Thursday’s “Lip Sync Battle.” “The Hangover” star and the former NFL defensive end went head-to-head in another wildly entertaining episode of the Spike instant-hit show. Tattoo-faced boxer Tyson opened the bout by gyrating in tight trousers to “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by the Rolling Stones, while Crews went back to the days when he was 12 years old and the song “that made me a man,” by rapping Run D.M.C’s “Sucker Mc’s. »

Work it, Terry Crews! The Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Old Spice commercial actor puts a bootylicious spin on Run-d.M.C.'s hit 1983 track "Sucker Mc's" in the newest episode of the Spike celebrity competition series, which airs on Thursday. In a sneak peek video released on Wednesday, he is seen showcasing some sweet dance moves as he performs in front of the audience, competitor and former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson and host and rapper LL Cool J, with added "backup vocals" from co-host and model Chrissy Teigen. "And then we talkin autograph, and here's the laugh / Champagne, caviar and bubble bath," he says, rubbing his »
If you're not a subscriber to Mike Tyson's YouTube channel, you should be. The prolific publisher of content has shared (and continues to share) a nice range (although mostly within the world of boxing) of quite fascinating video content that both boxing fans and non-fans will appreciate. Some of it is revealingly personal, and others, like this Tyson-moderated 42-minute documentary on boxing history, going back to the late 1800s, which he shared this morning, are wonderfully informative, giving viewers an education on the vicious sport - the early days, the Controversies, the first televised fights, the main events (important fights in boxing history), the upsets, the money, and much, much »

Well, this was a no-brainer: Spike TV has renewed its ratings jackpot Lip Sync Battle for a second season after just four episodes — though we're surprised it took this long. It'll return for 20 episodes beginning sometime in 2016, presumably with LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen back as hosts. Spike hasn't announced its next lineup of celebrity participants or the songs they'll be lip-syncing, but here's Mike Tyson doing "Push It" to give you an idea of what you can probably expect. »

Push it real good! Mike Tyson is going all out for his upcoming match against Terry Crews on Spike TV's Lip Sync Battle. In a sneak peek of the episode released earlier this week, the former heavyweight champion goes for the knockout punch with a high-energy rendition of Salt-n-Pepa's inescapable 1987 hit "Push It," complete with lots of jumping and fist-pumping. Tyson's commitment to the song is evident in his costume: skintight leather pants, high-tops, and a red and yellow varsity jacket adorned with the hip-hop group's [...] »
Lip Sync Battle gets stars to attempt things you'd never dream up, and Thursday night's episode is no exception. This time, it's all about men with athletic prowess. While Terry Crews totally nails his Run-d.M.C. impression, Mike Tyson seems to steal the show while channeling Salt-n-Pepa. In Mike's preview clip, the former boxer breaks out some intense dance moves while wearing supertight leggings. Let the guys take you back with their performances, and then watch more viral videos. »
Mike Tyson better watch out, because Terry Crews has some sweet lip-syncing skills. Spike released a preview of Crews’ performance of Run D.M.C’s “Sucker Mc’s” ahead of Thursday’s episode of “Lip Sync Battle,” in which the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star goes up against boxing’s former heavyweight champion of the world. Though Tyson proved himself a capable lip syncer in the preview of his performance of Salt-n-Pepa’s 1986 hit “Push It,” Crews appears to work the crowd into a frenzy with his mic skills, stage presence and white Adidas — a Run D.M.C. signature style mark.

Mike Tyson can not only punch, he can push it (real good). Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like he can dance so great or keep the mic up to his mouth — but the energy was on point. The former heavyweight champion of the world recently took his turn on Spike TV’s “Lip Sync Battle,” singing Salt-n-Pepa’s 1986 hit “Push It.” Tyson, in proper attire, threw punches and humped the air through the roughly 25-second clip. His competition was the equally physically imposing Terry Crews, who stars on Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” Also Read: How Jimmy Fallon's 'Lip Sync Battle »

While a ton of celebrities have been showing off their skills on Lip Sync Battle, Terry Crews got the stage all to himself at the TV Land Awards. He performed to a handful of timeless theme songs, including Friends, The Jeffersons, and a true classic: the Golden Girls tune. Not only did he lip-sync the song, he jumped into the audience and got up close and personal with the show's former star Betty White! It's precious. In case you can't get enough of him, Crews will actually be on an upcoming episode of Lip Sync Battle, going up against Mike Tyson. »
Pre-credit sequence. Hali's gone. I may not miss her, but Merica will, especially the awesome sloth who may or may not have anything to do with camp. Dan, standing by his "flippers never win" nonsense, is lecturing Shirin on how to play "Survivor," but Shirin is still hoping for a Blue Collar fracture. She wants to go to the end, which will only work if somebody on Blue Collar splits from the rest. Shirin tells everybody that she's voting for Mike at the end, which is the start of her fracturing process. Will she find help from Rodney? Boston's Finest thinks Dan is wrong in saying that flippers don't win the game, but he emphasizes that it matters when you flip and he sounds ready to flip at some point. How soon? Dunno, but let's just say Rodney isn't Blue till he dies at all. "I don't need no more friends. »

The MTV Movie Awards are on Sunday, and this should rile you. Not only is the Best Movie trophy a battle between "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Selma" (!), but Amy Schumer is our emcee. It's possible that you don't watch her Comedy Central series "Inside Amy Schumer" and watch her mercilessly rip into horrible celebrities on that network's roasts, so let's make sure we all understand this awesome talent before Sunday. After only two years of standup experience, Schumer gained notoriety as a fifth-place contestant on "Last Comic Standing" in 2007. Her first special aired on Comedy Central in 2010, and her hailed first album "Cutting" came out in 2011. She toplines the sketch comedy series "Inside Amy Schumer" where she generally plays stranger and more heightened versions of herself. In July of this year we'll see her starring role debut in "Trainwreck," a Judd Apatow-directed movie that Schumer also wrote. She's »

Former NFL speedster Willie Gault just made the boldest claim in the history of TMZ Sports ... 'cause he says his character was the king of "Tecmo Bowl" ... and Not Bo Jackson. Willie was out at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach (he's kind of a speed freak) when our camera guy went full video game nerd ... and Willie threw down the gauntlet on Bo's 8-bit avatar. Fyi -- The unstoppability of Jackson's "Tecmo Bowl »
