Melissa McCarthy performs Colors of the Wind during Lip Sync Battle on Tonight Show

Melissa McCarthy was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote her new film The Boss. Melissa came up with the character years ago when she was with The Groundlings. She agreed to a lip sync battle with Jimmy. Jimmy started off with a hilarious rendition of Melanie's "Brand New Key" in which he mimed being terrible on roller skates.

He did a great job, really selling his lack of roller skating skills. But then Melissa was up. She hurled the microphone stand at Jimmy and took the stage. She burst into an awesome rendition of DMX's "X Gonna Give It to Ya." When she finished, Jimmy noted that it was his wedding song.

Jimmy then performed Zayn's "Pillowtalk". He rolled around on the floor, using a pillow as a prop.He really got into it, and did a great job. But then Melissa then put on some clear goggles to perform "Colors of the Wind" from the Pocahontas soundtrack. Teh reason for the glasses became clear as she kept getting pelted with everything from flowers to ribbons to leaves, as well as some random stuffed animals by the wind. As for the colors of the wind? She was pretty much covered in glitter by the end. She clearly won that one. Take a look:
