Beyonce Makes Historic ‘Lip Sync Battle’ Cameo During Channing Tatum’s ‘Run The World’
Thanks to the cunning of a sneaky Lip Sync Battle audience member, we got reason to believe last fall that Beyonce would appear on the show’s new season to impersonate…Beyonce. And last night (January 7), our dreams were realized: During an episode that pit married couple Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum against each other, Queen Bey, herself, made a cameo during the Magic Mike star’s wind-blown take on “Run The World (Girls).”
No surprise: It was totally historic.
After Dewan Tatum delivered a Thunder Down Under-worthy rendition of Ginuwine’s “Pony,” her hubby, dressed in head-to-toe Beyonce finery (wavy middle part, included!), set out to land his own one-two feminist punch. In the video above, Tatum and a crew of backup dancers hold their own through a performance of Bey’s 2011 single, but the ante is completely upped when the singer, herself, joins on stage to show ’em all how it’s really done. Are we watching a brand new Destiny’s Child take shape…?
And while the crowd goes nuts when the track finally cuts, Dewan Tatum, who helplessly watches the performance from the side of the stage, can’t hide her shock, and collapses.
“I’m so sorry, she is not okay right now,” Tatum says of his wife. “She is so not okay right now.”
Check out the clip above to see the Lip Sync Battle cameo of the century in an episode that very reasonably amounted to a tie!
