‘Lip Sync Battle’ Preview: Michael Strahan Faces Hoda Kotb in Morning Show Warfare (VIDEO)

Lip Sync Battle returns for an all-new episode this Thursday on Spike, and the match-up pits two morning show hosts against one another.

Today‘s Hoda Kotb squares off against Live with Kelly and Michael star Michael Strahan, and the results are as amusing as you’d probably expect them to be. Michael performs “Poison” by Bell Biv DeVoe, and this is the most involved I’ve seen the audience get, singing along and basically going apoplectic. Part of it could be due to the special guests Strahan brings out onstage with him, but honestly, I think people just have a fondness for the song. Any track that has the lyrics “Never trust a big butt and a smile” can’t be anything but a classic, no?

On the subject of big butts, Hoda goes all in on her version of “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-a-Lot, and while her performance style could probably stand to be a little more engaging, I was pretty impressed at how effortlessly she tackled the lyrics. Hell, she even got Michael to “sing” along at one point. In short, it’s the most entertaining thing Hoda has done that didn’t involve Kathy Lee Gifford and multiple glasses of wine.
