The lip sync phenomenon couldn’t get any more interesting. “Nashville” actress Hayden Panettiere donned crimped bleach-blonde wig, a red corset and thigh high heels to give a scintillating performance of “Lady Marmalade.” The episode was aired yesterday and it also featured “Desperate Housewives” actress Eva Longoria.
This episode of “Lip Sync Battle” featured a stage that was set for Panettiere. It was decked to resemble the Moulin Rouge theme song. According to People.com, Panettiere channeled her inner Christina Aguilera in a cleavage-baring burlesque attire as she lip synced to the lyrics of the 2001 hit song, “Lady Marmalade.”
She already had the crowd as well as her competitor with her spirited performance. Still, everyone went berserk, when the original soul sister, Christina Aguilera herself joined the “Remember the Titans” star on stage. During the course of the performance, backup dancers arrived behind Panitierre. They were holding up a wall of pink feathers, from which Christina Aguilera then emerged. Aguilera was wearing a black top with plunging neckline and silvery shimmery heels. She actually sang the hit which had also featured P!nk, Mya and Lil’ Kim way back in 2001.
Popsugar reveals that the Hayden-Christina performance was so good, it came close to Beyoncé’s appearance during the Channing Tatum’s episode. Queen B made a surprise appearance on the show driving the hosts, the crowd, and even the Tatums crazy. The “Lip Sync Battle” is a musical reality show by Spike cable network. It is co-hosted by Chrissy Teigen and LL Cool J, and has been renewed for the third season.
ANN informs that the show has already featured Beyoncé and the husband-wife duo of Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Football player/sportscaster Tim Tebow too has graced the show and impersonated Rocky Balboa for the “Eye of the Tiger.” He competed against Nina Dobrev. “Lip Sync Battle” has also featured notable performances by stars like Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson.
