In Thursday’s (Feb. 11) episode of “Lip Sync Battle,” Eva Longoria (“Telenovela”) and Hayden Panettiere (“Nashville”) went head-to-head in a match-up that is sure to turn some heads. Two big numbers are done in this episode, finding Longoria going first with her rendition of Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda.”
Doing her best to replicate the bootylicious music video, Longoria soon drops the golden robe and removes the tearaway pants to reveal some extra padding “back there.” Still, the super-fun performance had the crowd cheering, leaving Panettiere to bring her A-game … and that she did.
Bringing back “Moulin Rouge,” from the 2001 movie by the same name, Panettiere tackled not only the Lil Kim portion of the track, but also Xtina’s. Dressed as Aguilera, the big reveal was the pop singer herself. Teaming up on stage on the song’s climax, it became a little difficult to tell the two apart.
Both numbers delivered the passion, energy and excitement the “LSB” crowd looks for every week. In the end, however, there can be only one winner and Eva Longoria took away the championship title.
“Lip Sync Battle” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Spike TV.
