Tom Cruise takes part in hilarious lip-synching battle: watch video

Tom Cruise is a man of many talents. The Hollywood superstar showed he is a force to be reckoned with as he took part in a lip-synching battle with Jimmy Fallon on Monday's Tonight Show. Tom, 53, gamely stepped up to the microphone to lip-sync two songs – and he certainly impressed.


"This is so ridiculous. I love it," Tom laughed before miming along to his first song, Can't Feel My Face by The Weeknd to the delight of the audience. It was then host Jimmy's turn, and he countered with a cover of the Rolling Stones classic Undercover of the Night, imitating Mick Jagger's trademark strut and singing style.

The Mission: Impossible star pulled out all the stops for his second song with a one-man duet of Meat Loaf's Paradise By The Dashboard, performing both the male and the female parts.

There was really only one option for the last song – The Righteous Brothers' You've Lost The Loving Feeling, which Tom famously sung in Top Gun. Jimmy and Tom teamed up as they mimed along to the track together, and serenaded one lucky lady in the audience.

Tom recently admitted that he would love to reprise the role of Maverick in a sequel to the iconic Eighties movie. "It would be fun," he said. "I would like to get back into those jets. It would have to be practical," he added. "I don't want any CGI jets. I want to shoot it like how we shot the first one."

Tom is currently on the promotional trail with his new film Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, which has received rave reviews from critics. It's not just the movie that's making headlines; so too is Tom's private life.

The rumour mill has gone into overdrive in recent weeks with reports that Tom is smitten with his 22-year-old personal assistant Emily Thomas, and is even planning to propose. But this week the pretty brunette seemed to set the record straight by changing her Facebook profile picture to one of herself and her real life boyfriend Alex Robert.
