The only thing Lip Sync Battle was missing Thursday was a Meryl Streep cameo.
The Devil Wears Prada co-stars Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway starred in the third episode of the Spike TV series, hosted by LL Cool J and featuring colorful commentary from model Chrissy Teigen. Before the longtime friends revealed their first songs, though, Blunt and Hathaway did a little trash talking on stage.
For their first entries, the actresses did without the bells and whistles.
Hathaway opened the show with Mary J. Blige's "Love." The highlight? When she slayed the rap verse. The crowd ate it up, but Blunt wasn't fazed by her competitor. "I'm not concerned. I mean, I'm all right. I mean, I thought it was cheap to have done all that stuff," she said, gyrating her hips like Hathaway. "It's easy."
Hathaway fired back, "To be fair, guys, Emily knows cheap!"
"Did you know that Anne was going to come out here and deliver...that?" LL Cool J asked. Blunt replied, "I thought she was going to do a show tune, to be honest."
