Taraji P Henson Lip Sync Battle Terrence Howard


Taraji P. Henson and “Empire” co-star Terrence Howard face off on the season finale of “Lip Sync Battle” on August 20. Helping Henson on the Mary J. Blige song “Just Fine” is Blige herself. Watch the video below!

As Blige steps on the stage to duet with Henson, Howard looks on in shock since his competitor has received help from the song’s originator. However, the promo video below teases that Howard may be aided by his own surprise guest. Host LL Cool J asks Howard, “How can you top that? I mean talk to me baby. Watchya got?” Henson then adds, “Who you got with you? Who’s rolling with you?” It’s hasn’t been confirmed that Howard will be joined by a music superstar of his own, but the promo seems to suggest it.

As Gossip Cop has reported, past participants on the show have included Justin Bieber, Dwayne Johnson, Common, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, John Legend, Mike Tyson, Jimmy Fallon, Julianne Hough and Queen Latifah, among many more stars. The show’s success has already led to “Lip Sync Battle” being renewed for a second season. Watch the video below of Taraji P. Henson taking on Terrence Howard with some added help from Mary J. Blige, and tell us what you think.
