In Thursday's special holiday episode of Lip Sync Battle, Gordon-Levitt was pitted against his The Night Before costar Anthony Mackie while a Santa suit-clad Seth Rogen looked on. The pressure was great, but so was the reward when JGL masterfully tackled Janet Jackson's 1989 hit.
Sporting a full face of makeup and long, curly ponytail, the multi-talented actor performed a sharply choreographed dance with a team of equally talented backup dancers. Not only did this performance easily secure him the battle's victory, but it could also put up a decent fight against Jackson's original video for the song.
