Leave it to Jimmy Fallon to take his late-night "Lip Sync Battle" sketch and turn it into one of this spring's wackiest shows. The Spike TV version premiered on Thursday (April 2) with Fallon taking on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Fallon opted to go full-Madonna for his version of her classic "Like A Prayer," which included him wearing a choir robe and being backed by full choir in the final round. And while The Rock did a pretty impressive version of the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive" in that final round, it was his earlier spin on Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" that was the real show stealer.

Lip Sync Battle is hosted by LL Cool J. Anna Kendrick, Justin Bieber and John Krasinski are among the celebrities slated to stop by this season. In fact you can watch a preview of Bieber's take on Ozzy Osbourne below.
