Watch: Beyonce, Channing Tatum ‘Run the World’ on ‘Lip Sync Battle’

Jenna Dewan Tatum may have brought the magic to Thursday night’s “Lip Sync Battle” premiere, but her husband Channing Tatum ran the show thanks to a little help from Beyonce.

Queen Bey made a surprise appearance on the “Tatum Takeover” edition of the Spike show during the “21 Jump Street” star’s performance of her 2011 favorite “Run the World (Girls).” Tatum — dressed to the nines in a black bra, fur vest, fringe skirt, gold chocker-belt combo and blonde locks, of course — even gave the pop star a run for her money.

Dewan Tatum stood on the sidelines in shock before putting her hands on her head and collapsing to the floor.

Beyonce will be joining another big name on stage come Feb. 7. The Grammy winner is set to perform with Coldplay at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, it was announced Thursday.

Tatum — dressed as the “Frozen” princess Elsa — also twirled and pranced to Idina Menzel’s “Let It Go” from the Disney blockbuster.

Not to be outdone, Dewan Tatum lip synced to Ginuwine’s “Pony,” the 1996 hit Tatum famously grinded to in his “Magic Mike” movies. Lucky for Tatum, he was the one pulled on stage for his wife’s lap dance.

Other guest appearances included Paula Abdul (Dewan Tatum performed to her 1988 song “Cold Hearted Snake”) and Tatum’s “Hateful Eight” director Quentin Tarantino.

The sophomore season of “Lip Sync Battle,” still hosted by Chrissy Teigen and LL Cool J, will include appearances by Kevin Hart, Snoop Dogg, Shaquille O’Neal, Eva Longoria, Nina Dobrev and Kaley Cuoco.

    Number one, it’s lame that these comedy shows think all it takes to get a laugh is to put a guy in a dress. How about some actual comedy?

    Number two, Channing still looks more feminine than The Hulk who goes by the name of Beyonce. Or Beyawnce as she’s known by those who have had to listen to her ramble on offstage.

    Queen B reigns. Don’t think she doesn’t know it. Don’t mess with Houston, Texas baby.
