Everyone was anticipating Lupita Nyong’o’s appearance on Spike’s popular show, Lip Sync Battle.
Celebrities go head to head, performing songs chosen by executive producers Fallon, John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant. Aiding in the production of epic battles, celebs are outfitted with microphones, props, costumes and even backup singers.
Celebs have notoriously gone all out with their production and performances of classic hits. Some of these antics have led stars like Channing Tatum, Anne Hathaway, and more to turn up the heat on their battles.
Lupita Nyong’o was the latest star to enter the fierce arena – Spike teased her performance with a clip of the Queen of Katwe actress performing Enrique Iglesias’ spanish hit, Bailando. However, no teaser trailer could have prepared us for her stellar performance of 90’s chart topper, ‘Whatta Man’.
Although Lip Sync Battle’s YouTube made the full battle unavailable in select regions, thanks to the world wide web, you can still watch her performance below.
Her opponent, Regina Hall killed it as well, knocking out a rendition of the Weeknd’s ‘Earn It’.
