We’ve been obsessing over the lip sync trend because we’re having our own lip sync battle! It seems only fitting that we pick out our top 5 most iconic lip sync songs of all time. Whether you want to brush up on your lyrics or get excited for Out of Sync, check out these iconic numbers.
1. Born This Way – Lady Gaga
Pretty much every Lady Gaga song has been lip synced at one point or another, and she even had an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race dedicated to her after many lip sync performances of her songs on the show. “Born This Way” is an empowerment song for everyone and always has the crowd singing (or lip syncing) along!
2. Dancing On My Own – Robyn
Robyn is another artist whose songs are typically favoured by the lip-syncers of RuPaul’s Drag Race, but her song “Dancing On My Own” is a club anthem anyone can throw down their best dance moves to while they lip-sync their hearts out.
3. Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen
It goes without saying that Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the most iconic songs of all time, let alone lip sync numbers, and with the recent release of the Bohemian Rhapsody film, it is a relevant yet classic choice that the whole crowd will know.
4. Wrecking Ball – Miley Cyrus
“Wrecking Ball” is the perfect vehicle for theatrics, as proved by Anne Hathaway, and even those who aren’t fans of Miley can’t help but sing along to this iconic pop ballad.
5. Respect – Aretha Franklin
Any song that is both a classic and has the nostalgia factor is the perfect formula for an epic lip sync, plus “Respect” is the quintessential social justice anthem for anyone wanting to spread a positive message with their performance.
If you like lip sync battles as much as we do, and you haven’t got your tickets to Out of Sync yet, early bird tickets are still on sale! And who knows, maybe you’ll get to see some of these songs performed live!
