See Ne-Yo gyrate in a red codpiece in Lip Sync Battle clip

He’s got Chrissy Teigen bopping to the beat

Posted on

Ne-Yo wants to know if you can feel it too.

The singer is the next star to storm the Lip Sync Battle stage, where he performs an ode to Larry Blackmon (frontman of funk and R&B group Cameo) complete with his signature red codpiece.

Judging from the preview clip above, Ne-Yo is bringing the slick and sweet-as-“Candy” dance moves as he glides across the stage and gyrates in a killer wig. It certainly has co-host Chrissy Teigen bopping to the beat, suggesting Ne-Yo will give competitor Taye Diggs a run for his money in the upcoming episode of the Spike TV show.

While Ne-Yo gets groovy as Blackmon, Diggs takes on another iconic performer: the one and only Madonna. The actor dons a blond wig, red lipstick, and, of course, a cone bra corset for a rendition of “Vogue.”

Watch the clip above and don’t miss the epic showdown when this new battle airs Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
