It’s Cookie Vs. Luscious in a real-life battle! In this new sneak peek, we see Taraji P. Henson bring out a surprise guest on stage during her ‘Lip Sync Battle’ against her TV-ex, Terrence Howard!
She may be singing “Just Fine,” but everyone knows Taraji P. Henson is downright amazing. The Empire star rocks short blonde hair while taking on the 2007 Mary J. Blige hit song to compete for the win against Luscious — alright, you may know him as Terrence Howard.
Move over, because Cookie is home! Terrence may end up losing this battle because not only does Taraji nail the lip sync battle, she actually brings out Mary J. Blige on stage — then turns to him and asks, “Who you got with you?”
That’s a very good question! The actors, who are on-again off-again on Empire, are great friends in real life which makes the battle all the more fun, and we can not wait to see what surprise Terrence has in store — because you know it’ll be a good one. Of course, the show made all sorts of buzz after its first season completely topped all the charts, and the show landed three Emmy nominations, one for Taraji herself.
So, could he take over or will she always be the queen? Catch their competition on Lip Sync Battle on Thursday, August 20 at 10:00pm ET/PT on Spike! Who do you want to win?
