The upcoming season of Spike TV's Lip Sync Battle has a bevy of wild moments to look forward to, including a particular performance from one Channing Tatum. The Magic Mike XXL star pays homage to Beyonce with a mouthed renditioned of her hit "Run the World (Girls)." In the trailer, Channing invokes the power of Queen Bey while wearing a furry crop top, matching shorts, a giant gold belt, and knee pads. Clearly, Chanyoncé means business. E! confirmed that actual Beyoncé will be making an appearance on the episode.

Channing is competing with his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, who will actually be impersonating him. The clip shows her mimicking Channing’s famous "Pony" scene from the first Magic Mike film. Jenna is dressed in a red baseball cap and white tank top, sporting what appears to be spray-painted abs. The couple, who met on the set of dance flick Step Up, will undoubtedly bring some fierce competition to the Lip Sync Battle stage.

Other highlights from the trailer include a Flashdance tribute from Shaq, Gigi Hadid performing a Backstreet Boys song, and Christina Aguilera lip-syncing her own "Lady Marmalade" tune. The show’s second season premieres on January 7th.
