Eva Longoria Channels Nicki Minaj (Complete with Butt Pads) to Take Home the Gold During Lip Sync Battle

Posted on

Spike TV

There’s was no shortage of butt pads on Thursday’s episode of Lip Sync Battle

Eva Longoria whipped out her rapping – and dancing – skills, tackling Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda.”

The 40-year-old put on a riveting performance, complete with tropical scenery, short-shorts, twerking and a padded postierer.

Her opponent, Hayden Panettiere, watched incredulously next to host LL Cool J before giving a glammed-up take on 2001’s “Lady Marmalade,” –and Christina Aguilera made a special appearance.

However, the extra star power in Panettiere’s performance didn’t seem to do the trick. Longoria took home the belt.

Knew I'd win with a @NickiMinaj song! Had so much fun on @spikeLSB! #Champion #LipSyncBattle #SheIsTheQueen

The Telenovela actress showed off the new trophy on her Instagram, including the caption: “Feels good to win that belt!! #LipSyncBattle.

Minaj hasn’t commented on Longoria’s performance, but the crowd seemed to approve.

Nicki, what’s good?
