It's no secret that Laverne Cox is a massive Beyoncé stan at heart (aren't we all, though?), given the crowd shots of her getting her LIFE while watching King B perform at the VMAs back in 2014:
I mean... honestly. This is a woman who is LIVING HER BEST LIFE:
Anyway, with this in mind, it wasn't a huge surprise that Laverne chose to pay tribute to her queen when she appeared on Lip Sync Battle, going head-to-head with her Orange Is The New Black co-star, Samira Wiley.
Unfortunately, the whole video of Laverne performing Destiny's Child's "Lose My Breath" is geo-blocked for us Aussies, so we'll have to make do with this one-minute clip from Instagram. With that being said, WOW, IS THIS CLIP EVERYTHING.
THAT SPLIT, THOUGH.
She also performed Nicki Minaj's "Roman's Revenge", a performance so impressive she even got a shout-out from Nicki herself, who captioned the clipi: “Shante, you stay!!! Cuz huntayyy u SLAY!”
Meanwhile, newly-engaged Samira totally slayed her performance of Naughty By Nature's "O.P.P", and you can watch a clip from that below:
You can also watch both actresses' pre-show interviews below, because it's not geo-blocked, and also just because it's awesome, and they're awesome, and I can't even pick a favourite.
Who do you think deserved to win?
