As her lip-sync challenger Lil Rel Howery put it, “she went there!”
Naya Rivera is up to bat on this week’s episode of Lip Sync Battle, going head to head with actor/comedian Howery (Get Out) on the episode airing Thursday evening (July 26). The former Glee star made a song choice that might shock you: the tell-off anthem by her ex-fiance, Big Sean, appropriately titled “I Don’t Fuck With You.” The two began dating in 2013 and got engaged later that year, but separated in early 2014. Sean’s “IDFWU,” feat. E-40, topped the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and was later revealed to be inspired by Rivera.
Rivera didn’t use any elaborate production during her epic performance, letting the angry anthem speak for itself. Commentator Chrissy Teigen and host LL Cool J watched in surprise as Rivera let loose.
The episode will air on Paramount Network Thursday (July 26) at 10:30 p.m. ET. In the meantime, check out an exclusive snippet of Rivera’s memorable performance.
