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

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

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!

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!!!!!

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

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

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.

Derrick Johnson : He wasn't half bad, although the one person I would love to see do a Michael Jackson Lip Sync Battle is Justin Timberlake. I remember he performed in a concert with Michael at one point and his moves were pretty solid compared to Michael's.

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

demian hopstaken : I love NPH but i expected a moonwalk

Jinkx Monsoon’s chipped tooth : 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

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....

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! >_<

HEMI 4 Lyfe : That was BAD ! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Nerdy Julia : He is not good as MJ

sydandtaytum : hes a really stiff dancer here...this is the wrong song for him...should've gotten bruno mars for this

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

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

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

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.

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

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

HistoryBuff Boi : 4/10 no moonwalk

The Helper : Oh my gowd that was Legend..........wait for it... Dary!!

PiazzaGurl : Not bad. But he really needed to be more animated. Michael never stood still. He was always moving even when it wasn’t choreographed.

Charie Mista : Hailee is the Best!!!

John Smith : When r they doing Billie Jean tho?

Kiara Rentrop : Barney is back!!

SignOfZodiac : This is so terrible and should never ever be done again! 🤦🏻‍♂️

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

rile niles : he can't dance.

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 :)

Lakeyia Douglas : This was completely off, y'all had to pick him 😂😂😂

Cole Butto : So much hate. All yall need to chill out. Bunch of you saying he disgraced MJ. Do it better yourself then. That, or admit it. It was damn good.

Skye Quinn : I love Neil but I have to say he wasn’t enough “energetic”. Mj never stood still on stage, never.

whutzat : Do your soul a deep favor and watch the MJ original's STILL the very BEST choreography I have ever seen in my life.

Jayyy:::::: : Eyeliner.

Jenny Jones : Ummm?? Well he tried! I guess it was Ok! Lol

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

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

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

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

Freshluigi : A Part of Michael Jackson lives in him.

HNDRX ☔️ : God Michael was such legend Edit: Michael *IS* such a legend

Princess Alize : hi Neil!!!!!


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.

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

Popculturehero11 : I think he is so stiff and having some trouble syncing correctly because someone needed to attend more rehearsals. Love Neil though and know he can bring Broadway level bring it. Just think he could have used some more practice before performing.

Starburst : Who else noticed my boy from M5
