Oh honey, ThanksLIVING! : NPH is so incredible: amazing husband, father, actor, writer, magician, drag performer (if you count Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and singer. And he’s so handsome

Solrac Dan : If anyone could pull it off I’d be NPH or Bruno Mars tbh

Lee Spidor : Either the audio is bad or that was terrible lip sync

Creatip : Well, the first half part was just like a bad imitation of Jacko, but dayum, in the last half part, NPH was channeling Jacko for sure....

dimitreze : ironic, not smooth at all he was very stiff

Kate Lattey : Anyone else get annoyed when the camera keeps cutting away to reaction shots - I'm trying to watch the contestant not everyone else!

Brenda Martínez : LOL he can't dance! nice try though

Pasanius92 : Did he mess up with the lip sync after the jump? 1:28

Julie Twomey : Love me some NPH y'all! OMG this tho y'all, this could of been Epic and damn it all, falling short doesn't even come close to the mark of explaining this! WTH! There's like zero emotion NPH, nothing showing threw your moves or body or facial expressions. You can act better than this so what's going on here? Smh, dude if you didn't want to do MJ then you should of demanded a different artist. It's so bad they cut to those poor back-up dancers on the main stage because you couldn't get set up flawlessly for the lean move?! Come on now! >_<

In Sasha's Journal : I didn't know I needed this until now.

Bert sanchez : Love him but get someone with rhythm

Chloe Heathcote : This was legen....wait for it and I hope your not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is...dary! Legendary!!!!!

demian hopstaken : I love NPH but i expected a moonwalk

rile niles : he can't dance.

Kabuki uchiha : Neil Patrick Harris's was my favorite and beat it was my second favorite

Joe Madrid : We need one of these but with Selena Quintana

Ice Queen Dalton : NPH is amazing but he didnt want to do this its obvious he wasnt feeling it if he had he couldve done it way better than anyone has ever done it. I dont think he even wanted to be on the show tbh but if u look at several other performances he has done he is amazing

Decomposite : Yeah... he needs to go back to rehearsals for a couple more months to pull this off. His energy was like a candle light, as opposed to Michael's supernova. Next.

HEMI 4 Lyfe : That was BAD ! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Ashley : Amazing!

kirikakirikakirika : Gets a call: Hey, how's it going?! We want you to be on Lip Syc Battle Live! Me (as any actor): Oh, cool! I can't wait! Guy on phone: Yeah, and you'll be competing against Neil Patrick Harris! Me (as any actor): ...You know what, I actually don't think this competition is for me.

Chaudhary Aehtsham : Naild it

Kiara Rentrop : Barney is back!!

Candice ecidnaC : This lacks Michael's intensity. As much as I adore NPH, this was just kind of... bland. Really disappointed. Glad they pegged the floor for the anti-gravity lean, but other than that, this was wholly unspectacular.

Ferrell Kang : Kids, in the beginning of 2018, your Uncle Barney was a Michael Jackson impersonator.

El_Bartto : White boy needs a little flavor.. this is kind of bland

Jay : Eyeliner.

Axel E. Funk : NPH sucks. I don't get all the hype.

Diamond W. : I love Michael Jackson so much and this makes me so happy. Good job Neil (Patrick Harris (it feels weird just saying Neil)). Yes Lip Sync Battle for "A Michael Jackson Celebration". I am so here for this, uh YES! Anyway, I hope everyone has a great day and God bless :)

Amanda Anaya : Michael Jackson's music and sweet movies never get old

Starburst : Who else noticed my boy from M5

CHOUETTE : NP Harris not so good 🤢🤮 Disappointed 😔

Michael Jackson : Boo

Nerdy Julia : He is not good as MJ

Caffeinated Nation : How did they not land Bruno for this MJ tribute?

Lærke Brink : naya rivera needs to come on to this show

Kc Sayegh : I don't remember MJ being that white. Lol

BergletteMom : NPH is SO GOOD.

Peacefrog : Corey Feldman and Macaulay Culkin should of been apart of this

Larry Parane : For NPH standards, this is too lowkey.

Vgamer 499 : Taking us back to when music videos actually had good dancing. I love it!

Pat Wilson : Neil Patrick..Fantastic job! You and the dancers!!

Mary Koncos : That was EPIC!!

Charlotte Osborne : That was legendary

SALAH MJ : whoever tries to sing or dance to MJ ends up looking ridiculous

Jônatas Faria : "crianças, hoje vou contar a vocês do dia em que seu tio Barney virou o Michael Jackson"

John Brown : Alright, that's not fair. It should be illegal to pick any of MJs songs. Instant win. NPH did amazing tho.

Awesome Kids : R.I.P Michael Jackson he will be missed

Malik Hasnaoui : That was legen- wait for it dary

Alisha Haq : Who is this Annie?
