There was something different about Justin Bieber when he took to the Lip Sync Battle stage to do a performance of Ozzy Osbourne‘s ‘Crazy Train’, but we can’t quite put our finger on it.
Have you done something different with your hair? Something with your eyes? Give us a clue, Bieber.
YES ALRIGHT. We know he’s wearing a long black wig and a heavy dose of guy-liner.
Yep, a clip from the show features Justin going all Prince of Darkness for his ‘Crazy Train’ performance, although it was actually more crazy eyes at one point than anything else.
Okay, so the whole thing was actually a bit scary and we don’t want to see Justin wearing a wig again with those creepy big eyes because nightmares, but hey.
It was also pretty good, and with painted finger nails and enough rings to sink the Titanic, we actually reckon the similarity to 66-year-old Ozzy himself was almost uncanny.
You can probably add ‘great at impressions’ to the CV, Biebs. Bravo.
Despite bringing out his inner heavy metal God, the 21-year-old didn’t channel all of the Osbourne’s old traits, opting not to bite the head off any small animals, which is something Ozzy did in the 1980s.
Kinda goes without saying that we’re screaming ‘THANK GOODNESS’ inside our heads right now.
Biebs has actually met the actual Prince of Darkness before too, starring alongside the member of the royal rock family* in a 2011 Super Bowl commercial.
*The royal rock family doesn’t *actually* exist, but it really should.
It was here that Ozzy famously asked: “What the f***k is a Bieber?”
Justin isn’t the first star to totally nail their lip sync challenge, with a video emerging yesterday of Anne Hathaway and her Wrecking Ball totally blowing everyone out of the water with her Miley Cyrus impression.
Anne wins, everyone else can go home.
The 32-year-old actress was up against her ‘Devil Wears Prada’ co-star Emily Blunt in the challenge, which will air later this week.
In the teaser clip, Anne and her Miley-esque red lipstick quite literally jump onto the stage to begin what seems like a pretty laidback and subdued performance, just like the start of the singer’s actual video.
And y’know what? Anne’s got her Miley impression DOWN.
However, just when you thought her effort couldn’t get any better, she dons white pants and a vest top (just like Miley wore in the video) and took a running jump at an actual wrecking ball.
Yes, Anne rides a real wrecking ball WHILST still lip syncing every single word with more emotion that we have during an episode of Long Lost Families because she’s totally FLAWLESS.
It might as well be the real Miley up on that stage, she’s THAT good.
Sorry, Justin. As much as we’re super impressed with your Ozzy Osbourne performance, we reckon Anne is definitely giving you a run for your money!
