Michael Phelps is used to winning, but he recently lost himself in an Eminem classic on “Lip Sync Battle’s” first ever “LSB All-Stars: LIVE.”
Performing the 8 Mile single “Lose Yourself,” Phelps delivered Slim Shady’s rhymes while in full B. Rabbit mode, complete with a hoodie and a focused glare.
Phelps caught the real Slim Shady’s attention with the clip, even causing Em to tweet, which he rarely does. “But wait until you see me swim,” Marshall Mathers joked.

Naturally, the “LSB: All-Stars Live” episode featured a star-studded cast, including Olivia Munn, Terry Crews, and John Legend, who covered OutKast’s “Hey Ya!” with some help from Stevie Wonder.
