We already knew that this season of Lip Sync Battle was going to prove itself worthy of renewal and then some. But holy crap, I was not expecting this. I thought maybe the show would save John Cho for the latter half of the season, or maybe they wouldn’t even appreciate Cho like we all knew they should, and pair him up against an unworthy opponent, buried somewhere in the middle.
Here’s what I was NOT expecting: John Cho singing Rod Stewart’s “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?” whilst grinding all up on Sir Ben Kingsley, who is BEYOND INTO THIS.
It’s only a teaser, and oh my god am I teased. You got me, Lip Sync Battle. I am hooked. I am into you.
Also, just in case you’re some kind of monster for whom that clip above isn’t convincing enough, here is Kingsley doing I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT BUT IT’S AMAZING. While he goes full Brit spectacle, let’s also look ahead to finding out what song is behind John Cho’s mustachioed cowboy garb. Can. Not. Wait.
