A teaser clip of the episode shows Tatum dressed as Idina Menzel’s Queen Elsa from the Disney movie and acting out the chorus of her signature song. There are also dancers dressed as snowflakes and a large, snowy castle. He is competing against his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, although the clip doesn’t divulge her entry in the competition.
“Sometimes you do need a little bit of magic, and that’s what happened with ‘Lip Sync Battle,’” Patterson said. “I love comedy, and I love live and I love variety, so ‘Lip Sync Battle’ was just the perfect storm, and it launched the company in a really nice way right in our wheelhouse with a celebrity talent-driven, shareable, viral, new world format.”
The show ended its first season in August, but received a good deal more buzz after its holiday special aired in November. The special included Joseph Gordon-Levitt performing Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation.”
“Lip Sync Battle” returns on Jan. 7 on Spike.
