Following her fabulous appearance at the 2017 Met Gala in New York, Zendaya wowed audiences on Sunday night’s episode of Lip Sync Battle. The actress was competing against her Spider-Man: Homecoming co-star Tom Holland and single-handily thrilled the audience with her performance.
Zendaya channeled Erykah Badu and lip-synced the R&B veteran’s classic 1997 song, “Tyrone.” The 19-year-old actress donned an elaborate headwrap and a fashionable camouflage outfit to recreate Fat Belly Bella’s fiery spirit on the song. In the end, it’s a beautiful performance of black girl magic.
Even Ms. Badu praised Zendaya for snapping out onstage. Viewers also went on Twitter to salute the young actress’ rendition. Journalist Rob Markman tweeted, “Zendaya is the people’s champ.” Another person wrote, “Zendaya kilt this Lip Sync Battle, Erykah Badu would be proud.”
