Though a bit nervous, Micheal Phelps, performed Eminem’s hit track “Lose Yourself” a couple of days ago. He performed it on the most recent episode of Lip Sync Battle: All Stars. It looked pretty obvious that he got tensed in the beginning, however, later Phelps managed to cover up. To have a better performance, he even choreographed dance moves, which indeed excited the audience. You can watch the video down below to get a better idea.
After seeing the performance, the “Rap God” himself tweeted “But wait until you see me swim.”
It’s no secret that Phelps is a huge fan of hip-hop and rap music. In his interviews, he has often told about his pre-swim playlist which includes tracks mainly from Eminem and Lil Wayne. So when it comes to inspiration, Phelps always tune into hip-hop and rap genre.
