So it was already made known a few months back that Channing Tatum would be going up against his own wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum, in this season’s Lip Sync Battle. There was also a report that Beyoncé was going to make a cameo appearance during his performance, but nobody prepared us for this.
So here comes Tatum – all decked out in a body contour outfit, Beyoncé’s signature weave and make-up – on a huge horse as he makes his way centrestage to start busting out some awesome moves, with a whole bunch of backup dancers. The Magic Mike actor was absolutely killing it with his performance of “Run The World (Girls)”. But just as we thought we’ve seen it all, booty popping included, in comes the Queen herself as she stomps down the stage like she owns it. The two blonde bombshells were in harmony as they brought the performance to a close. Wow, we never knew Tatum could look so pretty.
Was Beyoncé’s appearance enough for him to win though? Nah. Host LL Cool J called a tie.
