VIDEO: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Went Full Janet Jackson on Lip Sync Battle

See his amazing take on "Rhythm Nation"

Liz Raftery

Joseph Gordon-Levitt went all out to tackle Janet Jackson's "Rhythm Nation" on Thursday's episode of Lip Sync Battle, even donning makeup and a wig to mimic Jackson's look in the iconic video from 1989.

Gordon-Levitt was up against his Night Before co-star Anthony Mackie, who took on MC Hammer's "2 Legit 2 Quit" - but who, sadly, was no match for Gordon-Levitt, who has already proven his lip-syncing prowess on The Tonight Show. Poor Mackie could only marvel at Gordon-Levitt's performance, along with their other castmate Seth Rogen (who was clad in a full-on Santa suit), and LSB hosts LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen, who looked positively delighted.

Check out "Rhythm Nation" vs. "2 Legit to Quit" below, and see Gordon-Levitt's other performance, of Usher's "Yeah," here.
