John Krasinski is rolling! Rolling! Rolling on the river!

Given that he's one of Lip Sync Battle's executive producers, the actor understands better than anyone just how seriously stars take the Spike TV series. And when Krasinski found out he would be competing against Anna Kendrick (who performed One Direction's "Steal My Girl" and Jennifer Lopez's "Booty"), Krasinski realized that in order to win, he would have to pull out all the stops.

To do so, he performed Tina Turner's version of "Proud Mary."

He started the song "nice and easy," miming the lyrics while wearing a suit.

When the music picked up, Krasinski ripped off his suit to reveal a fringe dress underneath. As the 35-year-old actor did his best Turner impression, several dancers appeared on stage behind him. Will it be enough to one-up Kendrick? After all, "Steal My Girl" was performed as a tribute to Krasinski's wife, Emily Blunt, while "Booty" featured a surprise appearance from Lopez.
