Olympians face off in lip synching competition -- VIDEO

Before they compete for Olympic gold in London, we at EW decided to pit teams from various sports against each other in a lip synching face-off — a lip-off, if you will.

And the competitors are: the U.S. swimmers singing the song that just won’t die, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”; Great Britain’s divers covering LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It”; and the U.S. women’s soccer team jamming to the Miley Cyrus hit “Party in the USA.”

Bronze: U.S. women’s soccer
It was a valiant effort, but the team just didn’t cut it. Their literal interpretation of the song, complete with putting their hands up, nodding their heads “like yeah,” and moving their hips “like yeah” just wasn’t creative enough to beat the competition. While some of the girls were trying a bit too hard (see their gestures of “butterflies flying away”), others weren’t trying at all. Some of them didn’t know the lyrics to the song and were moving their lips in vain.

They also shot almost the entire video in the confines of their hotel. Would it have killed them to step into a bar or club, or at least throw a hotel rager? Aside from some fun in the bathroom, the soccer stars dropped the ball on this one.

Jimmy Fallon works out with LMFAO for 'The Spin Class Song'

Jimmy Fallon is sexy and he knows it.

TheĀ Late Night with Jimmy Fallon host broke out a fro-tastic wig, sparkly tights, and some exercise bikes Wednesday to join LMFAO for “The Spin Class Song.”

Right now, we can’t tell which is more embarrassing: the fact that we’re now considering going as LMFAO’s Redfoo for Halloween, or the fact that it took us a while to even realize “The Spin Class Song” is not a real LMFAO song? It certainly has all the makings of an LMFAO track, with dance beats, hand claps, and trance-y synthesizers up the wazoo. Plus, a guy in a robot costume and a golden thong (at the same time!) shows up to do his best party rock shuffle. If that doesn’t scream potential Top 40 hit, I don’t know what does.

Fallon may have peppered his rap couplets with current pop culture references — One Direction and Fifty Shades of Grey get name-checked here — but Fallon’s LMFAO appreciation dates back to early March, when he and Bruce Springsteen covered “Sexy and I Know It” on his show.
