The star of Queen of Katwe is paying homage to a King of Latin Pop.

In a newly released sneak peek at Lupita Nyong’o‘s upcoming Lip Sync Battle face-off, the Oscar winner shows off her salsa dancing skills to the smooth sounds of Enrique Iglesias‘ voice.

Wearing a black dress with red flowers, Nyong’o perfectly mimed the words of Iglesias’ 2014 hit “Bailando.”

Nyong’o is competing against When the Bough Breaks actress Regina Hall, who is set to deliver a chuckle-inducing version of the Weeknd‘s “Earned It” from Fifty Shades of Grey.

Earlier in the week, Nyong’o shared her Battle preparations on Instagram, including a rehearsal with a bevy of shirtless men.


As far as set dressing and commitment go, this looks to be a hard-fought Battle indeed!

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