Ah the lazy days of summer. Let’s spice things up a bit shall we? I herby declare the inaugural This Ain’t the Lyceum Lip Synch Battle underway!
Maybe you’re familiar with the viral clip of Jimmy Fallon and Emma Stone battling it out on The Tonight Show.
My rules will be the same. Each contestant sings a song of their choosing. Since this is an online battle, you are allowed props, costumes and the help of your family but no video or sound effects should be added. You are welcome to upload a clip or the entire song. If there are racy lyrics, please give a heads up in case any of us are watching with children. Winners will be decided by the number of YouTube thumbs up on their video. Thumbs down will not take anything away and Facebook likes or shares are not counted either. Contestants can enter up to two videos, and the total number of thumbs up will be tabulated at the end of next week…or whenever. I’m thinking one clip this week, and one next week in answer to everyone’s entries.
HAVE FUN! BE CREATIVE and shake the money-maker God gave you! My experience at Edel proved that women love a reason to cut loose and get a little crazy now and then. A lip synch battle is the perfect excuse to do just that.
When I did the rap at Edel, many women wondered how I managed to learn all the lyrics to Flo Rida’s Good Feelin’ and robot dance moves. “I practice in the kitchen while I make my dinner,” was my honest reply. I recorded my first entry while getting tonight’s dinner ingredients together. Just me, some meat and raw emotion. (Don’t worry, no keilbasa were harmed during the filming of this lip synch video.) While it’s a bit more over the top than my usual performances, let’s just say my kids were not surprised by any of my antics. Not. a. bit. (Although upon watching it, I’m surprised I don’t smile more while I’m cutting loose.) I’ve set the bar low with an easy song, simple dance moves, poor quality video and nothing but a slab of sausage. I expect stiff competition. Don’t let me down ladies.
