Hoda Kotb Traded In Her Wine for a Mic On 'Lip Sync Battle' & It's the Best Thing You'll See All Day

As a Virginia Tech alum, I'm a little bit biased when it comes to Today show co-host, Hoda Kotb. Not only is she a fellow Hokie, but she was also my brother's commencement speaker. Basically, you know... I Iove her. So when Kotb performed Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" on Thursday Night's Lip Sync Battle, I could already tell she was a clear winner. Sorry not sorry, Michael Strahan. Today show: 1, Live! with Kelly and Michael: 0.

Although I have to commend Strahan for his attempt at Fergie's "London Bridge" (though he appeared to mess up a few of the lyrics), and "Poison" by Bell Biv DeVoe, he really couldn't beat Kotb's "Uptown Funk" and "Baby Got Back." I mean when you put Sir Mix-A-Lot on the table, it's pretty much all over from there.

Strahan tried to woo a fan from the audience by basically grinding the floor an inch from her face, but apparently Kotb's dancing skills are far superior as she took home a win in the end. Pink blazer, black bandana, white fedora and all, Kotb was on her A-game last night.

Perhaps it was Kotb's song choice, or maybe we're all still coming down from the high that is Terry Crews performing "A Thousand Miles" last week, but unfortunately the audience wasn't feeling Strahan. I guess there's always next time!
