What do the words Ricky Martin in his underwear conjure up? Well on tomorrow night’s “Lip Sync Battle” you can test the theory yourself. Yes, Mr. Living La Vida Loca, is in his skivvies, white socks, no shoes and a white button-down shirt, and he’s working it.
Here’s the video sneak peek of Ricky Martin singing “Old Time Rock n’ Roll”, looking like a very mature Tom Cruise in “Risky Business”. Now that’s a great comparison to make, because Cruise was just a youngster when he played that role, and Ricky Martin is a grown man, so who ya’ got?
But, wait because “Lip Sync Battle” is not done providing you the ultimate in gorgeous faces and bodies doing their thing on stage. On the other side of the gender gap is supermodel Kate Upton. Yes, the fiancée of MLB pitcher Justin Verlander, best known for her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition covers, is taking matching lip sync styles with Ricky Martin.
In the sneak peek of her performance, taking on the Brittney Spears hit “…Baby One More Time”, don’t let the pigtails fool you. When you first see Kate Upton, she’s on her knees, crawling towards the camera, and as she gets up, well you get the entire picture. And might we say, that’s quite a picture!
“Lip Sync Battle” returns Thursday night April 20 on SPIKE, beginning at 10 p.m. ET. As always, guests are joined by host LL Cool J and Chrissie Teigen. Video/image credit: SPIKE, used with permission
