Everyone knows that the Queen of the Millennials is Beyonce. And if you didn’t know that before, now you do. Queen Bey, as we lovingly refer to her, has given female empowerment a proud voice (and a killer soundtrack).
One of the best feminist anthems, in my humble opinion, is her song, “Run The World (Girls).” Apparently though, I am not the only fan. It appears that Channing Tatum is as well.
Let me pause for a moment and explain how this information arose.
Jimmy Fallon has done a Lip Sync Battle with the guests on his show for many years. Emma Stone is one of my favorite contenders, and SLAYS in this epic fight:
This hilarity then evolved into it’s own show on Spike TV. I was slightly wary of this concept, in the same way I was wary of Disney creating a movie from the Pirates of the Carribean ride.
However, I was proven wrong on the movie, and I have been proven wrong again on my trepidation towards Lip Sync Battle.
On the season two premiere, Channing Tatum was set to dual with his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
When I began watching the video, I thought that Jenna had it nailed from the start. As she re-enacts Channing’s fabulous dance routine from Magic Mike XXL, I couldn’t help but cheer for her to win.
That was until the man himself, Channing Tatum, stepped on screen. Not only in a full skirted outfit, but with matching hair, he went all out in his Beyonce outfit.
Even better, he managed to twerk it low, in a way few men can.
But the ending was the final proof that not only did he win the night, he won the internet.
Enjoy the amazingness and be sure to watch until the very end to see why he won!
