Beyoncé joins Channing Tatum for surprise ‘Lip Sync Battle’ performance

Tatum faced off against wife Jenna Dewan in US TV series

Beyoncé surprised viewers of US TV series Lip Sync Battle last night (January 7) when she appeared alongside Channing Tatum for a performance of her song ‘Run the World (Girls)’.

Tatum was battling his wife, Jenna Dewan, on the show and began his rendition of the song solo, wearing a blonde wig and makeup. However, half-way through he brought Beyoncé to the stage and the pair danced to the song together.

Elsewhere in the show, Tatum mimed along to ‘Let It Go’ from Frozen while Dewan countered his performances with her versions of ‘Cold Hearted’ by Paula Adbul and Ginuwine’s ‘Pony’. She performed the latter in the style of Tatum’s hit film Magic Mike

Hosted by LL Cool J, the first season of Lip Sync Battle saw appearances from a number of A-list stars, including Anne Hathaway, Justin Bieber, Anna Kendrick, Mike Tyson and The Rock.

Channel 5 has launched a UK version of Lip Sync Battle, which begins tonight (January 8) with guests David Walliams and Alesha Dixon.
