Channing Tatum looks amazing as he drags up for Beyonce tribute (VIDEO)

Joe Williams December 15, 2015

The Magic Mike actor will impersonate the singer in an upcoming lip sync battle.

Fans have been treated to a sneak peak of actor Channing Tatum taking on global superstar Beyonce Knowles in the upcoming second series of ‘Lip Sync Battle’.

The star will take to the stage in a battle to prove who can impersonate a celebrity best, with the trailer for the series promising a host of crazy performances and unexpected surprises.

However, it seems Tatum’s Beyonce number may be the one to watch, as the clip – released by BuzzFeed – shows him busting out some serious moves whilst dressed as the ‘Run The World (Girls)’ singer.

Tatum follows in the footsteps of fellow actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who wowed everyone recently in his performance as Janet Jackson.

The 500 Days of Summer actor is no stranger to embracing his feminine side – dressing up in the past for Saturday Night Live, and just last month getting a camp music video crash course from Todrick Hall.

But he still managed shock everybody, as he perfectly took on Jackson’s ‘Rhythm Nation’ persona, appearing in a black military-inspired outfit complete with ponytail and make-up.

He continued to knock a dance routine for the song out the park, recreating Janet’s original moves with the help from a troupe of backing dancers.

Will Tatum be able to match – or maybe even outshine – his flawless routine?

Other teasers from the trailer see Christina Aguilera reprising her classic ‘Lady Marmalade’ performance with Hayden Panettiere, pluse Eva Longoria and Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Kuoco lip syncing for survival.

Lip Sync Battle season 2 premiers in the US on Thursday, January 7 on Spike.
