Channing Tatum on "Lip Sync Battle."

The Tatum Takeover season 2 premiere of Lip Sync Battle on Spike is already shaping up to be the stuff dreams and memes are made of, but this latest clip takes things Beyondce.

Channing Tatum, facing off against his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum, will go full Beyonce on Lip Sync Battle tonight (Jan. 7) with a performance of "Run the World (Girls)" dressed like Bey in the video.

Watch Channing Tatum 'Let It Go' As Elsa on 'Lip Sync Battle'

As anyone who's seen Magic Mike knows, the only thing Tatum half-asses is the clothing covering his back end. So for his Beyonce imitation, Tatum gets his shoulders bouncing up and down as if they're not even connected to his body -- almost exactly like Queen Bey in the video. It's reassuring to know that if Beyonce ever endures a sick day, Channing Tatum is more than capable of stepping into her shoes and pinch-hitting for a concert or two.

Watch Tatum's Bey-plus performance in part below, and tune into Spike tonight at 10 p.m. ET to catch the full thing -- as well as his wife doing Ginuwine's "Pony" and his take on another viral fave, "Let It Go."
