(Spoiler alert: Please don’t read if you’ve not watched Thursday’s episode of “Lip Sync Battle”)
The world’s biggest pop star took an NFL icon head-on when Justin Bieber tackled Deion “Primetime” Sanders Thursday for a brutal “Lip Sync Battle” showdown.
In honor of simply being Canadian, Bieber went first and showed off his feminine side with a romantic rendition of “Big Girls Don’t Cry” by Fergie on the hit Spike show. “I just fully committed,” Beiber said after his performance.
Sanders, who is now a CBS Sports and NFL Network analyst, then hit back hard by belting out “Play that Funky Music” by Wild Cherry.
Bieber countered by jumping on “Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne, but sadly for the “Baby” singer, it just wasn’t enough to beat the Hall of Famer who spent much of his career with the Dallas Cowboys.
After wearing the team’s iconic star on his helmet for so many years, Sanders came out in a white taffeta dress, layers of crucifixes and a blonde wig to channel Madonna with “Like a Virgin.”
Gyrating on the stage, flipping up his skirt and even dragging Chrissy Teigen out of the booth, it was game over for Bieber by unanimous decision.
“I can’t lie — it was great. I tried to hate and I can’t even hate. It was just that good,” Bieber said in awe.
“Lip Sync Battle” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
