Zachary Quinto previously told EW he was “a bit daunted” to compete on Spike’s Lip Sync Battle, but he evidently got over that fear: In a clip from the upcoming one-hour special, Quinto channels Missy Elliott — lipstick, chains, and all — for a performance of “Get Ur Freak On.”
“It’s pretty high intensity, a lot of production elements, basically a live performance that I’ve had about two days to rehearse for, with a 700-person audience,” Quinto told EW of going on Lip Sync Battle. “It’s unlike anything I’ve done, which is why I wanted to do it, but I feel like I’m going to bring it.”
Quinto is battling fellow Star Trek Beyond alum Zoe Saldana on the episode, which airs Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on Spike. See a sneak peek from his performance (which also includes a look at Saldana hanging out with TLC’s T-Boz and Chilli) above.
