Britney Spears, who? Kate Upton just brought everyone back to 1998, busting out her inner Brit Brit and that infamous schoolgirl outfit to give one helluva Lip Sync Battle performance, and the whole thing is pretty much the sexiest showdown the show's viewers have seen yet. A preview of Upton's "Baby One More Time" singalong has the Internet drooling till its premiere this Thursday on Spike. Here’s what you should know before it airs...
Kate isn't the only one to channel Britney for a TV segment. James Corden sang "Baby One More Time" on Carpool Karaoke (with Spears), and Ariana Grande impersonated the legendary pop star during a Saturday Night Live segment. Emma Stone did an impression of Brit for Vogue while Anne Hathaway did one on The Graham Norton Show.
Not only did the model—whose competition is Ricky Martin—take on Britney's entire “Baby One More Time” look with the full-on pigtails, high-socks and a tied-up shirt, but her performance was also accompanied by dancers just like Spears has in her music video.
Busty Britney! Kate's signature assets are her boobs, and trust us, she shows off way more of those girls in the Lip Sync Battle than Britney ever did back in the day. Did we mention the Sports Illustrated model lifts up her skirt during her performance, too?
Upton really tries to swoon the audience and viewers by bumping and grinding up against the floor during her singalong. Even crude girl Chrissy Teigen, who is a judge on the show, looks shocked by Upton's provocative Spears impression.
Maybe Kate's busting out her inner and outer sexy during the show because her Detriot Tigers player fiance puts the lockdown on sex life around game time. She recently told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Livethat, "There's no sex before a game - absolutely none! Also what I've just found out is, if he plays too well, there's no sex after, either."
This isn't the first time Kate's got her dance on for TV. She had an epic dance showdown with Jimmy Fallon on his show. So if you're drooling over this, you may want to YouTube that performance, too.
