    "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon faces off with Melissa McCarthy in a hilarious lip sync-off to songs like Zayn Mallik's "Pillowtalk" and "Colors of the Wind" from Disney's "Pocahontas." (Published Tuesday, April 5, 2016)

    Melissa McCarthy just put on a show.

    The actress stopped by "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and fearlessly faced off against host Jimmy Fallon in an epic Lip Sync Battle.

    After Jimmy pretended to put on a brand new pair of roller skates to the classic, "Brand New Key," McCarthy went in a different direction by performing DMX's "Gonna Give It To Ya."

    Fallon countered with Zayn's "Pillowtalk" with some help from a pillow on the floor, and while it was no Zayn making out with Gigi Hadid, it was definitely its own kind of sexy.

    Up next, McCarthy donned some safety goggles in order to properly take on some Disney.

    "I'm obviously going to close with a song from the 'Pocahontas' soundtrack," she said, before a woodsy backdrop appeared and a variety of leaves, flowers, animals, glitter, and drops of water flew at her while she pretended to sing "Colors of the Wind."

    She took her bows covered in sparkles, and Fallon promptly (and rightfully) crowned her the winner.

    Fallon gave fans a hint that their battle would be one you didn't wanna miss. The late-night host tweeted, "@melissamccarthy was MASTERFUL tonight with her lip sync battle. Just hilarious. #FallonTonight."
