We don't need to tell you that, as a culture, we have successfully reached Peak Lip Sync.
With Ru Paul's Drag Race entering its eighth season next year, Jimmy Fallon continuing to rely on it as a perennial favorite on The Tonight Show and the celebrity flotsam that is Lip Sync Battle rising from the shallow minds over at Spike, there's more than enough mouthing words while animatedly moving in the world.
With all of that said, it doesn't mean that we shouldn't pay attention when man of metaphysical mystery Tom Cruise grabs the unplugged microphone and squares off against Fallon.
In one fell swoop, Maverick delivers something from The Weeknd and Meatloaf, creating an unexpected duo of delightful drama.
Of course, Jimmy does great work as well. But he was born and bred for this stuff — it's like complimenting how well a duck swims.
Cruise, on the other hand, pleasantly surprises.
