Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Special Message to… Taylor Swift?
Ever wonder what it would be like to see Dwayne Johnson sing a Taylor Swift song?
You'll get your chance when the action star takes the stage for Spike TV's “Lip Sync Battle,” where your favorite celebs battle it out in the biggest, non-singing competition the world has ever seen!
The Rock will be the first guest on LL Cool J's new show, which is based on the popular Jimmy Fallon sketch of the same name.
The Rock gave fans a glimpse of his “Shake It Off” performance on his Instagram, and tells “Extra's” Mario Lopez he picked the Taylor song himself.
“I had to go with something the people wouldn't expect,” said Johnson, who then went on to thank the pop star. “Taylor, I got to send a personal appreciation, thank you so much.”
He added, “She heard I wanted to sing, and she was like, 'Rock got it, just take it.' I got the blessing from Tay Tay.”
Tune in to the series premiere of “Lip Sync Battle,” Thursday, April 2 at 10 p.m. on Spike TV.
