Michael Phelps has officially retired from swimming, so he has to figure out things to do in his newfound free time.
Since he probably sits at home lip syncing to his favorite rap songs (we already know he has a fondness for Future), why not do it on live TV?
Phelps participated in Spike’s “Lip Sync Battle: All-Stars Live Championship” on Sunday night, and paid homage to the most viral image of the Olympics during his performance.
Standing in front of a mirror wearing a black hoodie, Phelps gave the Phelps face to himself to begin his rendition of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” in front of an eager live audience.
Did he have the most commanding stage presence? No.
Did he get all the words right? Definitely not.
Did he crush the mic drop at the end? Absolutely.
And as Phelps knows after 28 Olympic medals — it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. True to form, he took home the win.
