Reason one million to love both Rebel Wilson and Ellen DeGeneres: The pair teamed up on an episode of “Ellen” to bust out their best karaoke moves on Salt-n-Pepa’s “Shoop.” We knew both women were music lovers, and also that both of them were awesome, but this just proves us right all over again.
Wilson has been very vocal about her rap skills on her recent promotional tour for “Pitch Perfect,” so bravo to Ellen for putting her on the spot — and to Rebel for actually backing up her claims.
Frankly, Wilson is just as good a hype woman for Ellen as she is a rapper, letting DeGeneres take the lead on the first verse before soloing on the second. (As a frequent karaoke performer of this song, the second verse is a tad more fun.)
What do you think of their performance? Have you ever busted out “Shoop” at karaoke? What’s your go-to karaoke jam?
