"Can I tell you? It's the total opposite of me. I'm living my alter ego. My other personality just happened." That's kind of hard to believe considering how comfortable she looked out on stage.
Strahan kept the sexy vibes going with Fergie's "London Bridge." Strahan didn't hold back with his dude take on Fergie Ferg's hyper-feminine and super hot track. His performance included lots of stage grinding and he even ended his performance by kissing an audience member. Oh yeah, he also licked his lips LL Cool J style.
"You gave Usher a run for his money," LL declared.
Your move, Kotd.
And she brought it. "I don't want to brag or anything, but the guy has zero Daytime Emmys. I've got three. You do the math because Michael can't," she trash talked backstage.
But did she live up to all the trash talk? She came close, stepping out in her best Bruno Mars look (complete with pink blazer and fedora) to have some fun with Mars' chart-topping collaboration with Mark Ronson "Uptown Funk." With her own set of back-up dancers, it's clear that Kotb has practiced her swagged-out take on Mars a few times at home.
"That. Was. So. Much. Fun," she said. But would the audience agree? Only time would tell.
Strahan's secret weapon might have been "a coat of funk on his tongue," but he probably didn't need it as the former football player pulled out a Hail Mary pass for his final performance. In his best retro look, he moonwalked his way through "Poison" by Bell Biv DeVoe. As it turns out, Strahan had a secret weapon lurking backstage that whole time. Taking a cue from the Anna Kendrick playbook, he was joined by the actual group.
"You go hard or you go home," he pledged.
And the winner is...
In the end, all of Strahan's performance bells and whistles weren't enough to beat out Kotb who was cheered to victory by the audience. It's a good thing he's got that Pro Football Hall of Fame trophy to go home to.
