“Lip Sync Battle” has helped change the face — and demographics — of Spike, and the new series will conclude Season 1 with a proper sendoff this week.

The show started with humble beginnings, as one of many games on Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show.” Now it is a standalone hit in its own right, bringing female viewers and ratings to the cable channel that badly needed both. “Lip Sync Battle” will actually finish its freshman run as the most-watched show in Spike history.

With Season 1 coming to a close on Thursday night, TheWrap looks back at its five favorite battles from the freshman fights. Enjoy some spectacular non-singing performances from Justin Bieber, Anna Kendrick, and even Fallon himself.
