Jarrod Fairclough – Lip Sync Battles. Once called the end of culture, with rich people we’ve seen too much of, mouthing along to songs we’ve heard too much of. For that reason, I’ve steered clear of the show, because while it may be harmless, I’d rather turn my attention to entertainment that has been crafted by professional storytellers. Character development. Engaging plotlines. Impressive visual effects. I’ve had no time for Lip Sync Battles…
Then Big Bird went on it. And like the adults when they discovered Snuffy wasn’t imaginary after all, I’m owning my flip-flopping. Because the preview for this episode is one of the most delightful things I’ve ever seen.
Airing tomorrow night, Thursday 30th May at 10/9c on Paramount Network, Big Bird will lip sync battle actor and Muppet fan Jason Schwartzman, with a little help from his friends. Below you’ll find a preview for the episode, and below that, a pre-game chat between the two contestants. Props to Matt Vogel, who is doing some insane choreography while performing a giant full body puppet!
Make sure you tune in tomorrow night!
