Lip Sync Battle: Zachary Quinto gets his freak on

Posted on

Spike TV

Zachary Quinto previously told EW he was “a bit daunted” to compete on Spike’s Lip Sync Battle, but he evidently got over that fear: In a clip from the upcoming one-hour special, Quinto channels Missy Elliott — lipstick, chains, and all — for a performance of “Get Ur Freak On.”

“It’s pretty high intensity, a lot of production elements, basically a live performance that I’ve had about two days to rehearse for, with a 700-person audience,” Quinto told EW of going on Lip Sync Battle. “It’s unlike anything I’ve done, which is why I wanted to do it, but I feel like I’m going to bring it.”

Quinto is battling fellow Star Trek Beyond alum Zoe Saldana on the episode, which airs Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on Spike. See a sneak peek from his performance (which also includes a look at Saldana hanging out with TLC’s T-Boz and Chilli) above.
