Watch Laverne Cox as she slays as Beyoncé in Lip Sync Battle

Laverne Cox set herself a high bar for her Lip Sync Battle appearance by taking on Queen Bey herself, but don’t worry – she totally slayed it.

The Orange Is the New Black star performed to Destiny’s Child’s ‘Lose My Breath’, and channeled Beyoncé throughout.

She was up against her Netflix co-star Samira Wiley, who opted for old school hip-hop hit ‘O.P.P.’, but it was Cox going full-on diva that had our attention.

She said before the performance that she’d be channeling the drag queens she grew up with in the New York scene.Laverne-Cox-Lip-Sync-Battle2

“Coming of age in the New York nightclub scene, I’ve seen a lot of queens lip sync ferociously so I’m drawing from all of them and I’m hoping they’ll be with me,” she said.

Not everyone is a fan of the show though; RuPaul has slammed Lip Sync Battle, calling it “a poor rip-off” of Drag Race, part of an ongoing trend for straight pop culture to copy the LGBT world.

Cox also stars in the new Rocky Horror Picture Show remake as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, which premiered in the U.S. last week. She admitted that she had one “apprehension” about the part: having to sing about being a ‘sweet transvestite’, and has repeatedly defended the project against widespread criticism.

Watch her channel Beyoncé below, and make sure you stick around until the end.
