Benny Feilhaber is many things: soccer player, Jewish Brazilian, internet talk show host and, most importantly, he shares a birthday with Dolly Parton and Shawn Wayans.
Oh, and he also lip syncs to Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody."
That is an all-time performance. You have to appreciate the way he unbutton's his jacket, sending a clear and early message that he means business. His spirit fingers are also flawless, so good that you have to imagine he is a Bring It On Academy product. Where he really shows off his talent is in air drumming, which allows him to show that he's a multi-talented musician and more than just a singer, while his hearts with Sal Zizzo let you know that he is sensitive and capable of love.
It's only May, but we already have a frontrunner for MLS Lip Sync of the Year.
Feilhaber's competition was never going to come from the rest of the league, though. He is an experienced lip syncer, and his only real competition was going to come from himself.
Obviously, "No Air" isn't as polished a product as "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," nor does it give him the chance to show off his versatility, but he does the entire song and the stamina is impressive. He also takes on a much more emotionally draining song and lets you feel his pain.
Two songs, two great performance so we must ask, which Benny Feilhaver show is better?
