Charli XCX successfully transformed into Ed Sheeran for a one-of-a-kind performance of the ginger wonder’s biggest hit to date, Shape of You.
The pop starlet is going up against Rita Ora in her first ever Lip Sync Battle and it’s a hotly anticipated encounter for everyone concerned.
To the uninitiated, Lip Synic Battle is a pop culture phenomenon which sees famous folk doing battle by a series of “battles” in which they dress up and lip sync along to a popular song of the time.
Based on a concept put together by Stephen Merchant, John Krasinski and Jimmy Fallon, Lip Sync Battle has been a huge hit in the US, where it is presented by LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen.
This particular episode sees Instagram pop favourite Charli XCX dress up as Ed Sheeran to perform Shape of You.
Watching Charli XCX wiggle around wearing an odd looking ginger wig and beard combo is bizarre to say the least. It makes for entertaining viewing, even if it is only a brief glimpse.
The highly anticipated Charli XCX vs. Rita Ora lip sync battle debuts Thursday, March 29 at 9:30pm. Unfortunately, it’s only being broadcast in the US.
You might have to wait a little longer for the show to arrive in the UK.
