Zachary Quinto Channels Missy Elliott and Gets His Freak on for Lip Sync Battle
It's a Trekkie-themed face-off for Star Trek Beyond stars Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana. The co-stars, who play lovers Spock and Uhura in the hit franchise, will compete in an upcoming hour-long Star Trek-inspired special of Lip Sync Battle.
Saldana is set to perform TLC with Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas in the episode airing June 9 at 8 p.m. ET, but what we're really looking forward to is Quinto's rendition of Missy Elliott's "Get Your Freak On." The hilarious preview (below) is giving us all sorts of throwback feels and bringing us right back to the early aughts.
The 39-year-old actor pays homage to Missy in the 30-second promo, performing the hit single wearing her trademark hoop earrings and gold chains, and embellished vest and pants.
While this performance looks like a sure winner, Saldana is definitely not giving up without a fight!
The Avatar star said, "I'm competing against a really good friend that I love and respect and he's going to really bring it and give it his all, so the least I can do is do the same."
