Lip Sync Battle

Laverne Cox Serves Up Epic Nicki Minaj Moves on Lip Sync Battle

Posted on

It’s safe to say Laverne Cox picked up a few moves at Litchfield.

The Orange Is the New Black star is set to go mic to mic with former costar Samira Wiley on this week’s Lip Sync Battle, and we can’t wait to see who snags the crown.

In a sneak peek at Wednesday’s episode, Cox goes up against Wiley’s rendition of Naughty by Nature’s “O.P.P.” by delivering a serious performance of Nicki Minaj‘s “Roman’s Revenge.”

Decked out in black booties, minishorts, a black mesh shirt and black leather gloves, Cox, 32, snaps up her leg in perfect form to the lyrics “I’ll kick that hoe / Punt!” — much to host Chrissy Teigen‘s delight.

As Minaj’s verse speeds up, Cox doesn’t lose steam, mouthing along the rapid-fire lyrics — and sneaking in a sly taunt to her opponent Wiley. May the best inmate win!

Lip Sync Battle airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on Spike.
