Lupita Nyong'o Is Prepping for Lip Sync Battle with Many, Many Shirtless Dudes

Posted on

Lupita Nyong’o is coming fully equipped to the Battleground.

The Oscar-winning actress is prepping for a turn on Lip Sync Battle with, it appears, a handful of handsome men.

Nyong’o teased her rehearsal sessions on Instagram Sunday, writing, “Stay tuned.” In the image, the 33-year-old stands with eight shirtless comrades.

One day prior, Nyong’o shared a gif of her excited approach into the Lip Sync Battle arena, writing, “Turn up! Let’s do this @morereginahall!”

Her opponent, When the Bough Breaks actress Regina Hall, is also pulling out all the stops for her turn on stage. In a clip from the upcoming episode, Hall is fully costumed as singer the Weeknd — complete with his famous locks (RIP) — for a performance of “Earned It” from Fifty Shades of Grey.

 

Hall’s faux facial hair stayed put even as her sexy fellow dancers swatted at her face with feather dusters.

 

Will the uncanny turn be enough to take it all? As Nyong’o put it: “In war, it’s not about who is right, it’s about who is LEFT!”

Nyong’o’s Lip Sync Battle face-off with Hall airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Spike.
