If there’s one thing John Krasinski knows he’ll need to beat Anna Kendrick during their “Lip Sync Battle,” it’s a sparkly dress.

In a preview for Krasinski and Kendrick’s matchup on Thursday (April 16), “The Office” alum (and “LSB” executive producer) pulls out all of the stops during his performance of “Proud Mary.” Knowing that it’s pretty much impossible to sing a Tina Turner song and not wear a shiny, fringed dress, Krasinski rips off his suit to reveal something a little bit more feminine.

The only question that now remains is if Krasinski’s dress stunt is enough to beat Kendrick. A sneak peek of her performance is all about Krasinski’s wife, Emily Blunt. 

In the end, either Kendrick’s “I heart Emily” shirt or Krasinski’s long legs are going to come out on top.

“Lip Sync Battle” airs on Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Spike.
