If you plan to challenge Joseph Gordon-Levitt on Lip Sync Battle, then you better bring your A-game or prepare to have your a** handed to you.

While his challenger Anthony Mackie pulled off a hilarious rendition of MC Hammer's "2 Legit to Quit" that thoroughly entertained (and caused us to cringe a little bit, TBH), it was no match for JGL's take on Janet Jackson's famous "Rhythm Nation" choreography.

After putting his spin on Usher's 2004 hit "Yeah!" (complete with pelvic thrusts and Thunderclaps), The Walk actor went all out for the military-inspired routine and completely committed to recreating Janet's throwback look. Sporting a long ponytail, a fully made up face, complete with a poppin' red lip and intense facial expressions, JGL channeled Janet to a tee.

But the obvious standout from JGL's throwback ode to Janet came in the middle of the performance when he effortlessly slayed the singer's classic choreography and blew everyone away.

Whew! We already knew Joseph had moves he totally killed his previous Lip Sync performances of "Tiny Dancer" and Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" but after this amazing routine, we're left with no choice but to bow down to the lip sync king.
