CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Ladies and gentlemen, it's time to get this party started.
Please make some noise for Mel B! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Hello.
Welcome to Lip Sync Battle UK! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Now, the game is simple.
Two stars lip-sync two songs, and the audience decide who did it best.
The mics may be off, but the battle is definitely on.
Come on! - CHEERING AND APPLAUSE - And here to help me out, as always, is a man who knows a thing or two about rap battles.
Please give it up for Professor Green.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE - How are you doing? - I'm doing all right.
How the hell are you moving about in that skirt? You know what? I don't know.
I kind of can't really move, and everything's sticking to me.
Bad choice, but hopefully it will survive the show.
I like your jacket, though.
Thank you.
Bit of spray paint and all that.
- Yeah.
- OK, tonight is not just a matter of pride.
Our two stars are battling to get their hands on the biggest prize in showbiz this, our Lip Sync Battle championship belt.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE OK, it is time to meet tonight's guests.
First up, it's Bridget Jones's best mate.
It's the gorgeous Sally Phillips.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Next up is the star of Peep Show, and the man who puts the "Webb" in Mitchell and Webb.
- It's Robert Webb! - CHEERING AND APPLAUSE OK.
So, how are you both feeling about tonight? - I'm extremely glad to be here.
- That's good.
- LAUGHTER - Are you going to win? I don't know.
I'll be literally the last person to know.
(LAUGHTER) Do you think you're going to win? No, he's going to win.
- Erm LAUGHTER - Oh.
- Where's the fighting spirit? - This is all a bit diplomatic.
Can you start being a bit less nice to each other, please? - Darling, we're actors.
We're being nice.
- OK.
- We love each other.
- We don't mean it.
Now, I get to decide who should go first, and I've decided it's Sally because she's a lady.
Simple as that.
So, Robert, please take a seat in our VIP bar.
So, Sally, are you ready for this? - No.
- LAUGHTER I'll tell you what I've done.
It seemed like a really great idea.
I thought, "If I do Gangnam Style, that'll be hilarious.
" - CHEERING - So, is that the song - that you've chosen? - Yeah! - LAUGHTER - OK, then! Kicking things off with Gangnam Style, it's Sally.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Put my glasses on cos Robert Webb likes women that wear glasses.
AUDIENCE: Ooh! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE MUSIC: Gangnam Style by PSY SHE MIMES: Oppan Gangnam style Gangnam style SHE MIMES KOREAN LYRICS AUDIENCE: Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! MUSIC PAUSES SHE MIMES: Oppan Gangnam style Gangnam style Op, op, op, op Oppan Gangnam style Gangnam style Op, op, op, op Oppan Gangnam style Hey, sexy lady Op, op, op, op Oppan Gangnam style Hey, sexy lady Op, op, op, op Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Sally, Sally, Sally.
Yeah.
Now, I don't know about you lot, but I only know the chorus because that's the only bit that I can actually understand.
- But you lip-synced Korean.
- Part of it, I did.
LAUGHTER But I have to say, for a lip-sync battle, that was very good cos I watch the lips very carefully.
And she did a bloody good job, don't you think? - CHEERING AND APPLAUSE - Thank you.
Yeah, you did.
- What did you think of Sally? - I think I might as well go home now.
LAUGHTER - How are you going to top that, though? - I'm not.
- LAUGHTER - OK.
What a song choice.
We've never really gone down that lane.
No, that's definitely the first time anyone has chosen a song in a foreign language to lip-sync, probably because it's the most difficult thing to do if it's a language you don't And Korean! Do you like making life hard for yourself? - Yeah, probably.
- LAUGHTER Sally! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Go to the VIP bar.
You deserve a drink right there.
Robert, you are up next, brother.
Are you nervous? - Yes! - LAUGHTER What song are you going to lip-sync for us? I'm going to be giving my Careless Whisper by Mr George Michael.
- CHEERING AND APPLAUSE - Oh, we are in for a treat.
Here's Robert with Careless Whisper.
Go for it.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE MUSIC: Careless Whisper by George Michael HE MOUTHS SILENTLY LAUGHTER HE MIMES: Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh I feel so unsure As I take your hand And lead you to the dance floor As the music dies Something in your eyes Calls to mind the silver screen And all its sad goodbyes I'm never gonna dance again Guilty feet have got no rhythm Though it's easy to pretend I know you're not a fool Should've known better than to cheat a friend And waste the chance that I've been given So I'm never gonna dance again The way I danced with you Oh-oh-oh.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE MUSIC ENDS CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Wow.
I actually thought, at one point, your legs or your ankles were going to snap or fall off or something.
I thought you did it justice.
- Thank you.
Thank you very much.
- I did.
That was my hope.
Sally, do you think that you can beat that or do you think you have already beaten that? No, I think Well, actually, maybe, because it's not a dance contest, is it? I mean, obviously, his dancing, we know, is epic, but it's not a dance contest.
So, would you say you're more confident going into round two or less confident going into round two? It's definitely an easier song than Gangnam Style, my next one.
- Right.
- But I think I still have the capacity to get it very, very wrong.
LAUGHTER Well, we will see, Sally.
OK, erm - Wow.
- CHEERING I just realised I saw it said George, but I didn't know it said, "I heart George.
" You are clearly a George Michael fan.
Yeah.
I mean, I like George Michael as much as the next man.
When I'm the next man, maybe not as much.
What did you think of his performance, though? I thought it was wicked.
Had me in absolute stitches.
- There you go.
- I'm not sure that was the purpose of the song originally.
Time now for a break, but do not go anywhere because we're going to be finding out which of our two comedians have the last laugh as they try and get their hands on that belt in round two of tonight's Lip Sync Battle.
Welcome back to Lip Sync Battle UK.
So far tonight, Sally did it Gangnam Style.
And Robert's guilty feet definitely did have rhythm.
LAUGHTER Time now for round two, where our stars up their game and do whatever it takes to get their hands on the ultimate prize - the Lip Sync Battle championship belt.
Sally's first to take the stage, so let's see how she's been getting ready for tonight.
I'm so excited about today.
I can't wait to see Rob.
I've been trying to call him, but he's changed his number.

There he is.
I wonder what he's wearing under there.
I like his trousers.

Less is more and all that.
Yeah, just quite a lot less.
I've got him a present.
I love his clown mouth, and I love his pointy nose.
He has a really strong effect on me.
I think, when I finally do see him today, - I just don't know what I'm going to do.

How you doing? His beautiful clown mouth's turning up at the corners.
- You look lovely in purple.

Piano player's hands.
Like pipe cleaners, but wider.
He looks after his nails.

Oh, yes, perhaps you'd Would you like one of these? - Yeah, I'd love one of those.
- Thanks.
Yeah, you can Yeah, if you want.
All right, cheers.

Well, maybe.
Before we see what you've got planned, let's take a peep at how you got ready for tonight.
- Ah.
- Ah.
APPLAUSE Looking forward to doing a bit of lip-syncing, then.
This is the sort of thing that can cause a lot of hate in the world.
So, I had these made as part of my campaign to win tonight.
It's a popularity contest, essentially, isn't it? I'm getting them to vote for me.
Hi there.
Thanks for coming.
- So, everyone's clapping for me, yes? - APPLAUSE No, no, no, no.
Not now.
Save it.
Save it! You can do it.
You can do it.
You can do it.
You can't do it.
You can't do it! Maybe we could bribe them.
Have you got any money? - Professor, sorry All right? You dropped that, so - What? He's not even a real professor, is he? I'm a big fan of the Spice Girls.
I like them even more than I like Westlife.
I'm not in favour of democracy when it goes wrong.
Let's make lip-syncing great again.
Yeah! THEY CHANT: Webb! Webb! Webb! Webb! Stop that.
Stop that.
It's like a fascist rally.
