A lip sync battle is the rare situation when having an overpowering manic energy that makes people feel like you might hug or strangle someone at any moment is actually an advantage. Ladies and gentlemen, Tom Cruise.

On The Tonight Show last night, Jimmy Fallon invited Tom Cruise to participate in an official Lip Sync Battle, and they both really went for it. If public opinion was formed by lip sync battle ability, Tom Cruise would be killing it, instead of making everyone wonder worriedly what life is going to be like for Suri.

At the end of the battle, Cruise and Fallon joined up for a duet of the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Loving Feeling," which apparently was a reference to the movie Top Gun? I didn't really get that because I'm not a thousand years old, no offense to boring movies that I haven't seen. But it still was pretty hilarious when they both sang to/held hands with/made intense celebrity eye contact with a shocked audience member in the front row.
