Dwayne Johnson's "Shake It Off" on Jimmy Fallon's Lip Sync Battle Was Absolutely Everything

Pin It

For years, we've heard Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson brag about his cooking skills, but who knew he had a secret recipe that involved knowing every single word of a Taylor Swift song? Proving that he totally lives up to his own hype, Dwayne's sizzling performance of "Shake It Off" on the premiere episode of Jimmy Fallon's Lip Sync Battle was absolutely everything and we couldn't tear ourselves away from watching it even if had tickets to see him in Furious 7.

Exhibit 1: Dwayne's bouncy shoulder choreography during the chorus followed by a body roll (at the 1:25-minute mark) so unbelievably smooth that it made us want to sign up to be his background dancers for the next lip-syncing battle royale. Exhibit 2: The "Furious 7" star pulled a throwback, below-the-belt wrestling move by flipping the bird (at the 0:41-minute mark) while singing the "haters gonna hate" line, to the complete shock of Jimmy and his host LL Cool J. Clearly they weren't ready for what The Rock had cooking - and neither were we! The muscled-up karaoke set even had supermodel Chrissy Teigen totally busting a move in the background.

Honestly, a cameo by T-Swift herself is the only thing that could've made this performance any better. Are we the only ones who totally didn't see this coming? Tell us what you thought of Dwayne's "Shake it Off" performance in the comments.
