Pitch Perfect's Skylar Astin ditches a cappella for Lip Sync Battle

Posted on

Skylar Astin doesn’t need perfect pitch to wow on Lip Sync Battle. 

On the next episode of Spike TV’s musical showdown, the Pitch Perfect star — who’s no stranger to a competitive sing-off — takes on Skrillex and Diplo’s song with Justin Bieber, “Where Are Ü Now.” While there’s no need for a cappella skills on the Lip Sync stage, Astin nails the performance nonetheless with Bieber-esque bouncing, clapping, and hightop sneakers. Acca-believe it!

Astin’s competition, Metta World Peace, better watch out; he’s in for a pitch slap.

Watch the preview clip above. Astin’s battle debuts Wednesday, June 21 at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
