The Telenovela actress went up against Hayden Panettiere on Spike's Lip Sync Battle Thursday. After rapping to Flo Rida and T-Pain's "Low" (and wearing Apple Bottom jeans and "boots with the fur"), the audience's jaws hit the floor when Longoria chose Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" for her finale song. The performance began with four shirtless men carrying the robed TV star to the stage, where she easily proved she's able to pop her booty like the best of 'em. In fact, as an homage to Minaj, Longoria padded her pink short-shorts to better represent the rapper's rump.
The look on Panettiere's face said it all: Victory would not be easy.
Fortunately, the Nashville actress had a surprise guest lined up for her second song of the night, "Lady Marmalade." After her energetic rendition of Blondie's "One Way or Another," Panettiere knew she had to up the ante with the Moulin Rouge single. In addition to recreating the music video's set design and wardrobe, she invited Christina Aguilera to join her onstage to perform the Grammy-winning song she made famous with Lil' Kim, Missy Elliott, Mya and Pink in 2001.
Referencing Panettiere's wig, Longoria joked, "I don't know what's bigger right now: my ass or her hair." After Longoria was declared the winner, host LL Cool J asked Panettiere what she would remember most about the experience. Her answer was funny and direct: "That I lost!"
Lip Sync Battle airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on Spike.
