Justin Bieber Performs Fergie’s ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’ on ‘Lip Sync Battle’, Is Unsurprisingly Good At Itby Bradley Stern | PopCrush
So, Justin Bieber is going to be on this Lip Sync Battle show! Have you seen it yet? It’s a pretty popular new series on SPIKE TV hosted by LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen, where celebrities go on stage and battle each other in the form a lip sync challenge. (And yes, you’re correct: It’s the exact same concept as the weekly elimination method on RuPaul’s Drag Race, minus the drag queens.)
Surprisingly to approximately no one, the professional entertainers are pretty good at lip syncing to songs! And while there aren’t any sassy queens in wigs throwing shade on this particular show, it still manages to gets pretty silly, which is why seemingly everyone — from Anne Hathaway (as Miley Cyrus in “Wrecking Ball”) to the ladies of Broad City — has been getting in on the fun. And now, our favorite “Where Are Ü Now” crooner-turned-professional Buttstagram model is due to appear in this week’s episode against former NFL player, Deion Sanders.
In a new teaser trailer from the upcoming episode, Biebs takes on Fergie‘s classic Dutchess emo bop, “Big Girls Don’t Cry.” And from the look of it, this is hardly the first time he’s emotionally faux-belted out the tune. He’s getting very into it — even taunting Sanders at the very end for good measure. Competitive, ay?
This all looks well and good, but what we’re really eager to see Bieber pull off Ozzy Osbourne in the second round, during which he bites off the head off a bat with a seemingly insane performance of “Crazy Train.” (For a glimpse of that gem, watch the episode trailer below.)
Tune in to watch Biebs go head-to-head (err, lip-to-lip!) with Deion Sanders on Thursday, July 16 at 10 PM ET.
