The new season of “Lip Sync Battle” pits spouse against spouse as Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum light up the stage with electric performances. Both “Step Up” alums feature serious commitment to their interpretations, although Beyoncé steals the show when she steps on stage with Tatum in his rendition of “Run of the World (Girls).”

Taking on her husband’s iconic scene from “Magic Mike,” Jenna Dewan-Tatum sports a painted-on six pack as she grinds up and down the stage, licks a power drill and performs a slightly NSFW lap dance during her performance of Ginuwine’s “Pony.” Channing Tatum first appears on stage descending from a horse statue in full drag, featuring some detailed make-up contouring and a blonde wig as he replicates Beyoncé’s “Run the World (Girls).” The audience clearly enjoys both performances, as each star showcases their best dance moves and choreography.

The episode premiered on January 7 on Spike TV. It marks the Season 2 premiere of “Lip Sync Battle,” which clearly has more surprises in store for 2016.
