Fresh off of is his Olympic win, Michael Phelps hits the big stage for “Lip Sync Battle: All-Stars Live.” Phelps reenacted the iconic scene from from “8 Mile” and performed “Lose Yourself” by Detroit’s own, Eminem.
Phelps starts off glaring at himself in a bathroom mirror saying the opening line of “If you had one shot, one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted. One moment. Would you capture it? Or just let it slip.” This happens to be the perfect line for an athlete who doesn’t let the ball drop as he is 28 Olympic medals deep.
The performance continues with a lot of stare downs, aggressive hand gestures, and ending with a crowd of people circling Phelps as he concluded the song.
Some say the performance was awkward, while others say he crushed it. There may not be a rap career in the stars for Phelps, but he got the job done.
