We’d never, ever, ever assume actor Bryshere Gray would sing along to a Taylor Swift song while dressed like Taylor Swift … but we thought wrong.
In Thursday night’s episode for Spike’s exhibit “Lip Sync Battle,” the “Empire” star sang along to Swift’s hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” while decked out in a blond wig and red lipstick.
The 23-year-veteran actor appeared on the exhibit, which is hosted by LL wintry J and Chrissy Teigen, and competed alongside Rumer Willis. It was clear that Gray, who ripped off his cherry-patterned onesie halfway through his performance to reveal a red two-piece skirt set, didn’t reach to lose.
Watch a snippet of his performance below:
In an interview with Hollywood Life, Gray said he chose Swift’s song because it was “so impactful to the world and the song is so mountainous for the culture.”
“It went so viral with her doing it that I felt that it would reach the fans that I want to reach!” he added.
And now that it’s over, he only has one wish: “I hope she retweets it! whether she could retweet it, then it would proceed everywhere!”
