Tom Cruise has done it all—dodged bullets, fought aliens, and jumped on Oprah’s couch, but last night he faced his biggest challenge yet—a lip-sync battle with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show.” One thing nobody saw coming was his first song choice, a surprisingly hip selection for the megastar—”Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd. He rubbed his face and even did a spin while channeling The Weeknd’s sultry energy.
“My first song has been on top of the charts all summer long,” said the star of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. “It is by the enormously talented The Weeknd, and it’s entitled ‘Can’t Feel My Face.'”
The Weeknd himself took notice, tweeting, “can’t believe @TomCruise is singing my song. @jimmyfallon *** you’re the MAN for this one,” and adding, “that sh—t got me hype… lol I can’t lie.”

The song, which will appear on the Canadian crooner’s upcoming album Beauty Behind the Madness, is currently No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
