Common Channels 1980s-Era Lionel Richie on 'Lip Sync Battle'

Common and John Legend stepped into the arena known as Lip Sync Battle Thursday night, where only one of the artists would walk away with both an Academy Award and the LSB championship belt. Legend and Common found themselves following up Jimmy Fallon and the Rock's explosive premiere episode. And while the "Glory" duo might not have the comedic chops of the late night host and action star, the duo still provided the two best performances with a pair of impersonations: Common channeling Lionel Richie and Legend reenacting MC Hammer. Common also performed a jubilant version of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back," while Legend revived Juvenile's 2004 song "Slow Motion."
