Taraji P. Henson Channels Her Inner Mary J. Blige on 'Lip Sync Battle'

Bonus: She gets help from a very special surprise guest.

Taraji P. Henson steps into the shoes (and hair!) of Mary J. Blige on an upcoming episode of Spike’s Lip Sync Battle.

Donning a black jumpsuit and a blonde wig, the Empire star channels her inner Mary J, “belting” (read: mouthing) a fierce rendition of “Just Fine.” But that’s not all! Midway through, Taraji gets a little help from the “Just Fine” singer herself. The two finish off the song before challenging a nearby Terrence Howard. Will Terrence bring anyone special out onstage with him? 

Check out a teaser above, and be sure catch the episode on Thursday, Aug. 20 at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
