Uptown Funk gonna give it to ya! And by "it" we mean a sizable royalty check!

Hoda Kotb funked up Michael Strahan real good this week when the two faced off on Lip Sync Battle!

The Today host channeled her inner Bruno Mars to ensure her victory battling against the Live! with Kelly and Michael host.

Kotb's first booty-popping performance of the night was to Sir Mix-a-Lot's Baby Got Back — and she knew every word!

But the 50-year-old really brought down the house with Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk, complete with an ensemble of backup dancers as she danced in a fedora and blazer!

Strahan gave a valiant effort in his performance of Fergie's London Bridge and the Bell Biv Devoe hit Poison, but the ex-NFL player just didn't want it as bad as his opponent.

NBC is doing it again!
