The #TatumTakeover on Lip Sync Battle Proved Even More Epic than We Predicted

When we first heard that power couple Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum were going to duke it out on the season premiere of Lip Sync Battle in a #TatumTakeover, we knew we were in for some pretty great moments. But we had no idea it would be this amazing.

Seriously, guys, this is going down in television history.

The episode, which premiered last night, is filled with so many quality dance moments and #RelationshipGoals it’s hard to keep track. The duo pulled out all. the. stops.

The highlights breaking the Internet today:

Jenna straight-up killing her routine to “Cold Hearted” by Paula Abdul. The singer herself made a surprise appearance (!) and danced to the second half of the song.

Can you say girl power? (screenshot via Spike online)

Jenna’s recreation of a Magic Mike scene to Ginuwine’s “Pony.” Naturally, she got her hubby in on the action.

Yaaaaaas girl. (screenshot via Spike online)

The best part? Channing couldn't stop laughing. (screenshot via Spike online)

Channing’s amazing “Run the World (Girls)” performance, which started with a hilarious moment atop a horse and ended with an appearance by none other than Queen Bey herself—she pulled out a few moves (and a few hair flips) with Channing at the end of the song. I meannnnnnnnnn, does it get better than that?!

Jenna’s reaction to seeing Beyoncé strut out and dance with her man pretty much sums up the night perfectly:

Us too, girl. Us too. (screenshot via Spike online)
