Victoria Justice wears Nelly’s signature white band-aid as she channels the rapper on the next episode of Spike TV’s “Lip Sync Battle.”
The actress will perform his 2002 hit “Hot in Herre” on Thursday’s episode of the Spike TV series. A preview released Monday teases her body thrusting in leather pants, while her backup dancers are booty-popping and co-host Chrissy Teigen is getting windblown in the background.
The actress, who was last seen as the star of MTV’s “Eye Candy,” will be dueling with fellow MTV star Gregg Sulkin (“Faking It”).
“Lip Sync Battle” has continued to be ratings powerhouse for Spike, averaging 2.9 million viewers per episode and a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
“Lip Sync Battle,” which LL Cool J co-hosts, is produced by John Krasinski, Stephen Merchant, Casey Patterson, Jay Peterson and Rick Schwartz. Beth McCarthy-Miller of “Saturday Night Live” serves as director.
This week’s “Lip Sync Battle” will air Thursday, July 30 at 10:00pm ET/PT.
