Thursday night’s occurrence of “Lip Sync Battle” took us( briefly) back to 1999 and we have zero complaints.
Zoe Saldana drew down the house with an epic portrayal of TLC’s famed collision, “No Scrubs.” Though her garb, mane and jig moves would’ve been enough for a great performance, the actress brought forward TLC’s Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins for some kick-ass cameos. The third original member of TLC, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, died in a vehicle crash in 2002.
Not one to be outdone( or labeled a “scrub” ), Saldana’s “Star Trek” co-star Zachary Quinto wowed the crowd with a entertaining/ crazed/ perfect rendition of Missy Elliott’s “Get Ur Freak On.”
Wearing a bedazzled jean outfit, coated fingernails, silver pearls and a brilliant color of red lipstick, Quinto was puttin’ it down . LL Cool J literally could not retain his cool, either:
Missy plainly approved of the performance, as she retweeted a clip of Quinto performing.
