Joseph Gordon-Levitt has already proven his impressive lip-syncing skills on The Tonight Show with his memorable rendition of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass,” and now he’s taking his talents to Lip Sync Battle. This time, he’s taking on “Yeah!”, Usher’s hit collaboration with Lil’ Jon and Ludacris,

JGL performs the 2004 club banger with incredibly high energy and emphatic gestures and dance moves on the edge of the stage. It’s going to take a lot of Red Bulls for his The Night Before costar Anthony Mackie to keep up with him.

The episode will be a one-hour Christmas special, and from the promo we also know it features Seth Rogen, Run DMC, Mackie performing a hip-thrusting rendition of Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl,” and JGL in Janet Jackson drag to perform “Rhythm Nation.” Thankfully, Lip Sync Battle isn’t just teasing us with a one-time special and disappearing for months — new episodes for the show’s second season are coming Thursday, Jan. 7.

The Lip Sync Battle holiday special airs Thursday, Nov. 19 at 10 p.m. ET on Spike TV.
