Ilana Glazer Lip Sync Battles Abbi Jacobson With “Hey Ya”


Yesterday, SPIKE released a preview of Abbi Jacobson zealously lip syncing “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” from Dreamgirls, in anticipation of an episode of Lip Sync Battle that’ll see her and her Broad City co-creator/star Ilana Glazer going head to head. Today, the network shared a snippet of Glazer’s performance, creating a mini-battle between clips of the larger battle, which will air this Thursday.

While Jacobson opted for a classic act — sporting a gold-sequined dress and calling on her array of emotions to serve as dance moves — Glazer went for a more casual vibe, lip syncing Outkast’s “Hey Ya” in a nonchalant but choreography-oriented performance.

The winner of the previews seems, undeniably, to be Jacobson, but these things are unpredictable, and Ilana could very well don a blond wig and whip out her best “Started From the Bottom” lip sync in a bank, and the tables would drastically turn. Watch it here.
