Watch Cheryl Salt James perform Run-D.M.C.'s Tricky on Lip Sync Battle

Lip Sync Battle returns this week with a battle for the ages: Salt vs. Pepa.

The arrival of the “Push It” duo gives us flashbacks to Mike Tyson’s rendition (complete with leggings and a lot of spirit). But, no one can add the spice quite like the original Salt-N-Pepa. 

This week, though, the two will be going head-to-head for the latest faux-sing-off. In this clip, Cheryl “Salt” James shows just how “tricky” she’s willing to be in order to bring home a win. But will her Run-D.M.C.-inspired performance be enough? 

Lip Sync Battle airs Thursday, May 21 at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
