A Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes look-alike! Zoe Saldana channeled the late TLC singer-rapper for an epic performance of the trio’s 1999 hit “No Scrubs” on the Thursday, June 9, episode of Lip Sync Battle. The best part? She was joined by the girl group’s two other members, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins!
The Star Trek Beyond star, 37, hit the stage in a silver bra and matching wide-leg trousers paired with out-of-this-world pigtails, an ensemble that was practically identical to the look Lopes wore in the track’s music video.
Keeping in theme with the futuristic aesthetic of the song’s iconic video, Saldana started her set by standing on a metal swing (yep, just like Chilli’s!), with hunky spacemen pushing her back and forth, as she mimed the tune’s opening line: “A scrub is a guy that thinks he’s fly and is also known as a busta.”
The mom of two then stepped down to show off her dancing skills with some late-'90s-style choreography. Soon, Chilli, 45, showing off her abs in a shimmering crop top, and T-Boz, 46, rocking her staple asymmetrical blond bob, walked out to slay with Saldana.
Off to the side, LSB’s unofficial hype girl Chrissy Teigen moved along to the music as she slipped on a pair of glasses, a condom taped to her left lens. (“Left Eye” Lopes — who died at age 30 in a car crash in April 2002 — used to wear a condom on her left eye to promote safe sex.)
As Teigen, 30, got her groove on, show host LL Cool J and Saldana’s competitor, Zachary Quinto, looked on in amazement at the newly assembled TLC.
Watch the video above. Lip Sync Battle airs on Spike Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET.
