Lip Sync Battle Trailer: First Look at Taraji P. Henson vs. Terrence Howard

Good news, long-suffering Empire fans: Cookie and Lucious will reconvene sooner than the Fox drama’s Season 2 premiere — and yes, it’s going to be a battle.

Spike TV on Monday released a trailer for the return of Lip Sync Battle (July 9. 10/9c), giving us our first look at Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard taking the viral stage by storm. Howard wigs out for a performance of the Commodores’ “Brick House,” while Henson busts out a secret weapon — Empire guest star Mary J. Blige — for one of her big numbers. Henson and Howard’s showdown will air as a special one-hour season finale on Aug. 20.

Additional celebrity lip syncers include: Justin Bieber (as a terrifying mini Ozzy Osbourne), Deion Sanders, Andy Cohen, Will Arnett and Alison Brie.
