Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong'o displayed a new set of skills during a recent appearance on Lip Sync Battle. The Queen of Katwe star delivered a fierce and ultra sexy rendition of Salt-n-Peppa's "Whatta Man."

The Oscar winner duked it out against When the Bough Breaks star Regina Hall's spot on performance of The Weeknd's "Earned It" and came out victorious.

Lupita's dance moves stunned Lip Sync Battle hosts LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen right along with her opponent who even joked, "I think coming out in the half shirt and, ah... The grinding- I mean, I think that was... Unfair. That twerk was on me, I guess."
