LaVar Ball brings giant ego to 'Lip Sync Battle'

Two Balls and just one belt. Who was going to go home the Lip Sync Battle winner: LaVar Ball or his son, Lonzo Ball?

It wasn’t clear who would win, with both Balls delivering unexciting performances. Lonzo kicked off the night with a dull attempt at Kendrick Lamar’s multiple award-winning hit from 2017, “Humble.” And, honestly, K-Dot deserves better. In fact, Lonzo’s lips barely coincided with the lyrics. The same could be said about LaVar’s first performance of one of Nas’s classics, “Hate Me Now.”

Lonzo’s second act was a monotonous performance of “Bad and Boujee,” by Migos. You know, the rappers that Lonzo publicly stated are “real hip-hop” after saying, “Don’t nobody listen to Nas no more.” Papa Ball then had one more shot at the belt as he performed Morris Day and the Time’s “Jungle Love.”

The only part of the show worth mentioning was the continuous shade the two threw at each other. Following LaVar’s first performance, Lonzo said, “Hey, can I tell you something, LL? If I was Nas, I’d be mad he put on a performance like that on my song.”

In the end, LaVar won the belt, shouting, “You already knew the belt was coming to me! They already had my initials: LSB. Lavar Star Ball!” Hmm … pretty sure those aren’t his actual initials.

Lip Sync Battle airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on Paramount Network.
