Paramount Network's Lip Sync Battle has given audiences some iconic throwback performances in the past, although its safe to say its upcoming performance is one of the greatest to date. To promote her new show American Woman, actress Alicia Silverstone rocked the Lip Sync Battle stage by reviving her most iconic film character, Clueless' Cher Horowitz, for a rousing rendition of Iggy Azalea's "Fancy." Cher is alive and dancing in 2018, as if she wouldn't be, and the world is totally better for this clip.
Chrissy Teigen took the words right out of our mouths. Who would've thought the world needed this so badly? I mean, besides everyone.
Alicia Silverstone slipped right back into Cher's arguably most memorable outfit to strut her stuff for the camera and fans, and it was 1995 all over again. Silverstone gets extra credit for doing the whole shebang in platform heels, too, although we can all hope she didn't attempt to drive home with them on afterward! The Lip Sync Battle clip is just a tease of Silverstone's full performance, and those interested will get to watch her full battle against actress Mena Suvari on Paramount Network Thursday, June 14.
Alicia Silverstone's "Fancy" performance on Lip Sync Battle is a double tribute of sorts. So for anyone who thought a track from the Clueless soundtrack may have been more appropriate, be sure to actually watch Iggy Azalea's video for the song, which is essentially a recreation of various scenes from the hit comedy, with Azalea dressed as Cher.
Lip Sync Battle would've really made Clueless fans happy had they snagged someone like Paul Rudd or Donald Faison for a full-blown reunion show, but alas, the clip doesn't make it look like anything like that happened. (But our fingers are still crossed.) The episode is just fine in keeping its theme tied to leading ladies of the '90s, with Alicia Silverstone taking on Mena Suvari of American Pie and American Beauty fame. Because Silverstone and Suvari are also co-stars in the Paramount Network dramedy American Woman, audiences shouldn't be surprised if some sort of cross-promotion goes down in the midst of this exciting battle. But most importantly, can anyone imagine Suvari can do anything to top Silverstone resurrecting Cher in 2018?
Alicia Silverstone and Mena Suvari go head to head on Paramount Network's Lip Sync Battle Thursday, June 14 at 10:30 p.m. ET.
