They’ve been hyping it for a while now, and last night it all went down. Big Bird went up against Jason Schwartzman on the Paramount Network’s ridiculous competition show Lip Sync Battle. I have to say, I was really surprised they chose “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails as the song Big Bird lip-synced. It was a bit shocking, but he did a great job.
Nah, just kidding. In addition to pretending to sing Michael Bublé’s “Feeling Good,” Big Bird lip-synced to “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas. And then Schwartzman did Pink’s song “Just Like Fire.” Take a look:
It almost feels like cheating that Big Bird brought his famous friends, doesn’t it? And the audience is clearly thrilled to see them.
So who won? This Instagram post by Matt Vogel may provide a clue…
