Have You Seen This? Melissa McCarthy's lip syncs a Disney ballad

Posted April 10

NEW YORK CITY — I have loved Melissa McCarthy since she played kooky klutz Sookie St. James during all seven seasons of “Gilmore Girls.” Don’t even talk to me about the fact that she won’t be reprising her role for the Netflix reboot. It’s too fresh.

Watching the former Groundlings performer turn from WB-series regular to bona fide movie star has been nothing short of gratifying. She has the kind of public persona that makes fans feel like their friend is getting their due after all their hard work. Or maybe that’s just me wishing I had a friend like Melissa.

Either way, McCarthy has been working the talk show circuit promoting her new comedy feature “The Boss” and made a stop on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” to participate in one of Fallon’s famous segments: Lip Sync Battle.

Choosing the classic “Pocahontas” ballad to close the eight-minute long back-and-forth between McCarthy and Fallon did not disappoint. The glitter at the end was a nice touch.
