The Daily Heat Index: Watch Channing Tatum ‘Run the World’ Like Beyonce on ‘Lip Sync Battle’
Plus, ‘The Conjuring 2’ trailer scares the sh*t out of us, and leaked ‘Arrow’ set photos reveal new details about a beloved character.
Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:
Channing Tatum Runs the World
In what might be their best episode yet (sorry, Kendrick v. Krasinski), Lip Sync Battle returned for its second season with an all-out #TatumTakeover that we’ll talk about for years to come.
In a borderline NC-17 performance of ‘Pony,’ wife Jenna thrusted, grinded, and stripped down in attempts to earn the title, but it was husband Channing who went full drag with his performance of ‘Run the World’ that will forever be burned in our brains. The best part? The queen herself, Beyonce, joined the Magic Mike XXL star on stage, causing the heads of millions across the globe to explode simultaneously. While the battle ultimately ended in a (fair) draw, hats go off to Mr. Tatum for his confidence to don a blonde wig, tights, an uncomfortably looking dress, and pounds of make-up, all for the sake of art. We salute you, sir.
This Looks Horrifying
The trailer for The Conjuring made us weep like a little girl, and when it came to actually viewing the film, most of it was seen with eyes half-open. It should be no surprise that the trailer for The Conjuring 2 has the same effect, so tread lightly when watching below. Can’t these ghosts just get a day job or something?
Arrow Set Images Could Reveal Big Things
The midseason finale left fan favorite Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) fighting for her life, but when the show returns this January, we might see her in a different light. Thanks to a few leaked set images, we can see the beloved character in a wheelchair, and as some suspected, ‘Oracled.’ This is in reference to the comic book persona originally taken on by Commissioner Gordon’s daughter Barbara (aka Batgirl) after being shot by the Joker. While there’s no immediate confirmation that Felicity will become Oracle, it’d be pretty damn sweet to see her team up with Black Canary and Huntress to form their own little ‘Birds of Prey’ squad. CW’s Arrow returns on January 20th.
