"I was screaming laughing that was hilarious," commented Aredhel Robison.

"This video was too funny when Jimmy started to sing the first song I fell over in my chair," wrote Julie Mathews.

"She honestly got some crazy dance moves," Lou Nobin chimed in.

The lip sync battle is one of more popular segments of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which also features comedy sketches, music parodies, celebrity interviews, and ridiculous games, among others.

McCarthy - who was the world's second highest-paid actress in the world in 2016, according to Forbes - plays a rich and powerful businesswoman in The Boss.


Abandoned by several different families, she developed a bitter personality against the idea of having a family.

As an actress, McCarthy has received several nominations from BAFTA Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

She began appearing in television and films in the 1990s, gaining nationwide recognition for her role as Sookie St. James on the television series, Gilmore Girls, which ran from 2000 to 2007.

She was also known for playing Dena on the ABC sitcom Samantha Who? from 2007 to 2009.
