Jimmy Fallon had some memorable lip sync battles on Late Night, and the TV host revived the recurring segment on The Tonight Show Thursday. Fallon, 39, invited guest Paul Rudd, 44, to join him for the bit.

The funny friends chose two songs each; neither star knew which tunes his opponent had selected.

Rudd started off with a feisty rendition of Tina Turner's 1984 hit "Better Be Good To Me." After he finished, the actor admitted, "That made me deeply uncomfortable. Not to be outdone, Fallon performed Foreigner's 1982 jam "Jukebox Hero." After, Rudd told Fallon, "You're not messing around."

In the second round, Rudd channeled Freddie Mercury when he covered Queen's 1979 smash "Don't Stop Me Now." Fallon was so impressed with Rudd's performance that forfeited and conceded defeat.

"I concede! I concede!" Fallon said as he bowed down to the Ant-Man star. "The winner right there, Paul Rudd! The champ! Fantastic! Oh my gosh…That was off the charts! That's gotta feel good!"

During his Late Night days, Fallon had lip sync battles with John Krasinksi and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
