Lucious Lyon a.k.a. Terrence Howard is ready to let it all hang out onstage for Lip Sync Battle, competing against his Empire costar Taraji P. Henson. He brings the house down with some pretty impressive dance moves (and a split thrown in there for good measure).

In this clip, Howard channels Rick James while taking the stage to perform “Brick House,” and even host LL Cool J can’t get enough. But, Henson does have a little backup from Mary J. Blige – so, whose performance will be enough to take home the win and earn the performer on-set bragging rights?

Check out this sneak peek before the episode airs Aug. 20 at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
