Who run the world? If Channing Tatum has his way, it will be him! The Magic Mike XXL star, 35, has pulled out all the stops for his appearance on Spike’s Lip Sync Battle.
Though several sites had reported that Beyonce would be facing Tatum in the ultimate Lip Sync Battle showdown, BuzzFeed Entertainment reports that Queen Bey will likely be making a cameo during Tatum’s battle against his wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum.
And the season 2 trailer for the hit show indicates that their prediction is right. In the clip, Tatum is spotted donning a wig, a black furry two-piece crop top ensemble and boots, as he twerks to Beyonce’s hit “Run the World (Girls)” with a gaggle of backup dancers.
The doors to the stage then open as host LL Cool J exclaims, “This is crazy! The room just exploded.”
Dewan Tatum, 35, gasps and falls to the ground from shock, presumably because she is now in the presence of greatness (aka Beyonce).
And if she does make the surprise appearance, Beyonce won’t be the only celebrity musical guest to join the fun. Christina Aguilera will be singing “Lady Marmalade” for her former Nashville costar Hayden Panettiere, and the Backstreet Boys will provide some backup for Gigi Hadid on their hit “Larger Than Life.”
Watch the trailer now and tell Us what you think! Season 2 of Lip Sync Battle premieres Thursday, January 7, at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
