Before it became a whole separate program with lights and costumes and at least one surprise guest per episode (opens in new tab), Lip Sync Battle was a chance for celebrities to mouth along to funny songs, maybe with some dramatic arm movements thrown in. On Monday's Jimmy Fallon, Shaquille O'Neal restored the bit to its former glory by hamming it up majorly—with, okay, some help from Mr. Worldwide.

After his host upped the stakes by singing both John Legend's and Ariana Grande's parts in "Beauty and the Beast," Shaq turned the drama-kid dial all the way up to 11 for his rendition of "Don't Go Breaking My Heart."

A kiss, a spank, and some cradling—watch it all happen here.
