Channing Tatum is no stranger to dressing up in strange costumes and dancing for other people's enjoyment. He even made a movie about it called Magic Mike, which recounted his time spent as a male exotic dancer. We never guessed the Hollywood superstar would be dressing up as Elsa to perform the hit song 'Let it Go' from Frozen. But that's exactly what he did for the next intense episode of Spike's Lip Sync Battle.
Lip Sync Battle has become immensely popular since it's premiere in April of last year. And plenty of Celebrities have stopped by in the months since, pulling out all the stops to give the best performances possible. It is a war, after all. And now, we get a sneak peek at what will surely become one of the greatest Lip Syncs ever caught on video. Channing Tatum not only pretends to belt out 'Let it Go', he does so dressed as main character Elsa, which requires him to go in drag.
Every subsequent episode of Lip Sync Battle has demanded that each incoming contestant bring something new and exciting to their chosen song. And Channing Tatum has certainly gone all out. In his full Elsa gear, the star of 21 Jump Street and The Hateful Eight kicks it up a notch by appearing alongside dancing snowflakes as fake snow swirls around him. Some who've already seen this amazing sight claim it might even be better than Terry Crews' fan favorite rendition of 'A Thousand Miles', and it finally knocks John Krasinski's take on *NSYNC's 'Bye Bye Bye' down a notch.
While the clip is brief, we do get to see a reaction from Channing Tatum's wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum. And she seems astonished. His former Step Up co-star will be competing against her husband in this epic episode. And judging from this sneak peek, she is going to have one tough time beating Channing. The trained dancer proves he's capable of pulling off a killer twirl without missing so much as a beat.
You can see Channing Tatum's full 'Let It Be performance later this week, when Lip Sync Battle returns to Spike for all-new episodes starting January 7 at 10pm. It promises to be the husband and wife face-off of the century! While we await this latest battle, take a look at the very entertaining sneak peek. And if you want more of Channing Tatum, he's starring in The Hateful Eight, in theaters right now. And Jenna Dewan-Tatum can be seen starring in CBS' Supergirl this winter.
