Dustin Lynch Mimes His Way to Victory Over Cassadee Pope on ‘Lip Sync Battle’ [Watch]
Dustin Lynch was crowned the winner on Wednesday night's (Dec. 21) episode of Lip Sync Battle against Cassadee Pope. On the show, Lynch stepped away from his country roots and showcased his hip-hop swagger with a jaw-dropping performance of Ludacris' "What's Your Fantasy" and Lou Bega's "Mambo No. 5."
There was plenty of hip-thrusting and whipped cream action during "What's Your Fantasy," and on "Mambo No. 5" Lynch ditched his trademark ball cap for a white hat and completely white ensemble, donning a zoot-suit and fake mustache for the Latin-flavored track. While Lynch had plenty of ladies to dance for, he brought a chair over to competitor Pope for some up-close moves.
As Lynch brought the swagger, Pope brought the surprise for her energized performance of Panic at the Disco's "I Write Sins Not Tragedies." While her song came to a close, she entered through a stage door with a very special guest: Panic at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie, who helped her lip sync a very epic end to the song.
Pope's surprise guest wasn't enough to win her the belt on Lip Sync Battle, however. It was Lynch who was crowned the winner. Lynch's win closes an already successful 2016, as the singer's latest single “Seein’ Red” has recently entered country radio’s Top 10. Co-written by Kurt Allison, Steve Bogard, Tully Kennedy and Jason Sever, “Seein’ Red” is the first song off Lynch’s upcoming third album. It follows the singer's previous three No. 1 hits “Where It’s At,” “Hell of a Night” and “Mind Reader” from his sophomore album, Where It's At.
