Can you hear what The Rock is singing?

Well, former wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson isn’t actually singing, but he is participating in a new show on Spike TV.

“Lip Sync Battle” premieres on the network April 2nd, but fans of the supersized star can see him lip sync “Shake It Off” by the one and only Taylor Swift in a preview from Johnson’s Instagram account.

It’s a short snippet from the upcoming show, but don’t worry — there’s more.

Common and John Legend have had a landmark year with the success of their song “Glory,” which won a Golden Globe and an Oscar during awards season.

But in this clip, the two are no longer on common ground (get it?) as they face off as Lionel Richie and MC Hammer.

Who knew Common and Legend had moves like this?

We hope”Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon is getting some credit for this. He is the king of lip sync battles, after all.
