Laverne Cox on Lip Sync Battle.

Earlier this month, ahead of her role in Fox's Rocky Horror Picture Show remix, Laverne Cox told Billboard, "I didn’t study voice until college, and then I started opera. But this is sort of my singing debut to the world." Now, Cox is showing off her vocal prowess once more -- sort of -- as she will fight it out in the upcoming episode of Lip Sync Battle on Wednesday night.

Cox will go up against her Orange Is the New Black co-star Samira Wiley. Wiley took an old-school hip hop route, with the Naughty By Nature classic "O.P.P." In contrast, Cox chose a more modern path and selected the fiery Nicki Minaj track "Roman's Revenge."

The third season of Lip Sync Battle kicked off on Spike in early October, and Cox and Wiley's episode will air Wednesday (Oct. 26) at 9 p.m. EST. In the meantime, out a preview of Cox's performance below.
