Emily Blunt prepares for ‘Lip Sync’ battle

When you’re going up against an actress who has played Fantine in “Les Miserables” you have to pull out all the stops.

Spike released another preview from its much anticipated show “Lip Sync Battle,” where Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway are going head to head.

The “Into the Woods” actress, 32, is shown preparing for her performance, which included her practicing her annunciation by repeating “Benedict Cumberbatch” over and over.

The star, whose musical number is a Janis Joplin hit, tries on many pairs of sunglasses in an attempt to channel her inner rock star in preparation.
