Watch a Preview of Zoë Saldana Competing Against Zachary Quinto in Star Trek-Themed Lip Sync Battle
Star Trek Beyond star Zachary Quinto got his freak on channeling Missy Elliott in a 30-second promo released Monday for Thursday's episode of Lip Sync Battle. Now, Trekkie co-star and love interest Zoë Saldana is showing us what she's got!
In the latest sneak preview, the Avatar star can be seen performing Twenty One Pilots's hit "Stressed Out" for the hour-long Star Trek-themed Lip Sync Battle special airing June 9 at 8 p.m. ET on Spike.
Saldana, who plays Uhura opposite Quinto's Spock in the hit franchise, takes a completely different approach from the actor's over-the-top performance, which featured shirtless dancers, hoop earrings, and a sparkling vest with bedazzled jeans.
The 37-year-old actress performs the 2015 track from "Blurryface" wearing a skeleton-embellished black hoodie, black shorts, and red knee-high socks with black boots. A good sign? Host Chrissy Teigen and her co-host LL Cool J can be seen getting into the song and headbanging along to the beat.
