- Welcome back! - Thank you! Thank you for having us! Let's get this thing started.
Nicole, you're gonna start things off.
Derek, you have a seat in the VIP.
(cheers and applause) What Shania Twain song smash hit did you choose for us to go first with? There's something that I've been wanting to come out with for some time, and and say, and I think right now's the right time to do it.
- I love it, I love it.
Well, you know what? - In this song.
- (cheers and applause) - LL: From what I understand, this is something you wanted to play with.
I'll take this one.
Ladies and gentlemen, Nicole Scherzinger!

- (LL laughing) Beautiful song choice.
That was great.
I love when we have performers on.
- What's my score? - Chrissy: I know! - Wow.
- You don't have to do that again, baby.
- I thought that was awesome.
- How did that feel? How did that feel seeing that, Shania? I'm gonna have to change the way I perform that song now.
- (laughter) - (cheers and applause) It's inspiring.
I need to go out there, definitely with more oomph.
You sold that.
That was amazing! Derek, I mean, you and Nicole were friends, but now it's Lip Sync Battle, I mean, how do you feel about this? I think we might be taking that friendship to another level after this.
Geez! Just kidding! (laughing) L is like "Really?" No, I'm just, you know, I'm just a witness.
I'm an innocent bystander.
I honestly want to stay right over here.
- (stammering) - (LL laughing) Alright, Nicole, you can head over to the VIP.
- Make some noise! - (crowd cheering) Alright! Derek, it is your turn! Now Derek, Nicole went for the heart strings.
- I mean, which Shania song are you gonna do? - Oh my goodness.
Here's the problem, actually.
Honestly.
Cause the songs are so hooky, like you just can't get them out of your head.
I can't even remember what song I'm doing now.
- (laughing) - Because that one's going in my head.
So hopefully when the track kicks in, it'll all come back to me.
- (cheers and applause) - Alright, so ladies and gentlemen Derek Hough! (cheers and applause) (Any Man of Mine by Shania Twain plays) Ooh This is what a woman wants Any man of mine better be proud of me Even when I'm ugly, he still better love me And I can be late for a date, that's fine But he better be on time And any man of mine'll say it fits just right When last year's dress is just a little too tight And anything I do or say better be okay When I have a bad hair day If I change my mind A million times I wanna hear him say - Yeah - Yeah - Yeah - Yeah Yeah I like it that way Any man of mine Better walk the line Better show me teasin' squeezin' Pleasin' kind of time I need a man who knows How the story goes He's gotta be a heart beatin', fire breathin' Breathtakin' earthquakin' kind Any man of mine Ooh You gotta shimmy and shake Make the Earth quake Kick, turn, stomp, stomp Come on, everybody On the floor One, two, a-three, four (cheers and applause) LL: Make some noise! Damn, D! - Chrissy: Yeah! - You put some work in! I-I busted a little sweat on that one.
- (laughing) - I love that he's like, "I I'm not sure if I'm gonna " (imitating drums) Like, what the? So Shania, when you recorded that song, did you ever envision, like, someone dancing like that? Like the way Derek just did his thing on stage on Lip Sync Battle? You you have to come and choreograph this for my tour, - because like - (cheering) Yes! Honestly, I'll I'll back up.
I'll be your back-up dancer all day.
- Oh my - He's the best.
- (laughter) - (cheering) Derek, you can head over to the VIP.
Now, this Shania Twain inspired episode is off to an amazing start.
Nicole and Derek are going country pop with it.
I'm feeling it.
I am dying to know what could possibly be better than all of that.
I guess we'll find out after this.
- It is Lip Sync Battle.
- Lip Sync Battle, y'all.
Oh, life's about to get good - Whoo! - It takes two to make a thing LSB is back.
Nicole is ready to loosen up her buttons and kick off Round Two.
No stranger to competition, she knows what it takes to come out on top.
Let's see how she put in the work to do just that.
(man speaking) Um, lip syncing.
(laughs) Do you need any help with rehearsal? - Huh? - She's mega competitive.
- He is so competitive! - I am not competitive.
You know why? Cause he doesn't need to.
Because he's gonna do five pirouettes, and be like, "Oh, what?" - (Derek laughing) - It's just how I breathe.
(laughing) Shut up! There's like no one else like Shania.
You know? I mean, she's the country pop queen.
Your new single's my jam.
Nicole: And, like, I love her song That Don't Impress Me Much, and Man! I feel Like a Woman.
It's all female empowerment, and she's just beautiful.
(cheers and applause) (Man! I Feel Like a Woman by Shania Twain plays) Let's go, girls Ooh!

(cheering and applause continues) You know what? You know what? (laughing) You know what? (laughing) That was awesome.
- Derek: That was amazing.
- I didn't know you could do the splits.
Shania how are you feeling right now? Did she capture the vibe? Did she capture the Shania Twain vibe? - (cheers and applause) - Shania: Nicole owned it.
She owned it.
You owned it! Sometimes you gotta get down and dirty, you know? Cause I wanna win this competition.
(cheers and applause) LL: So Nicole? You can, uh, do some snow angels over in the VIP.
Have a seat.
It looks like a battle of the year.
Nothing like a good girl power anthem.
And I can't wait to see what Derek has thought up.
And after the break, we all find out.
This is Lip Sync Battle.
Oh, life's about to get good Oh, life's about to get good - Whoo! - (crowd cheering) Lip Sync Battle is back, and this salute to Shania Twain has been amazing.
Now Derek Hough, a master dancer, and returning battler gets his time to shine once again on this stage.
I hope he put together a routine to come out on top.
Derek: Nicole and I know each other because we actually competed on Dancing With the Stars.
We actually won season 10.
We've been friends ever since, and you know, she's a great girl.
A lot of fun.
She's very competitive too, so I don't know what she's gonna do, but I know it's gonna be good.
When I was younger, I was a hopeless romantic, and Shania Twain had those beautiful songs.
She was stunning.
(mouths) And what I wanna say to her, basically, is like "I've had a crush on you since I was as long as I as long as I can remember.
" I can't even say that word.
I wanna say that I feel confident.
I wanna say that I feel sure of myself, but I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little nervous.
(laughing) (cheers and applause) I'm so glad there are so many people here tonight to witness my 16-year-old fantasy come true.
I love you.
- This is a big moment.
- (cheering) (From This Moment On by Shania Twain plays) From this moment Life has begun From this moment You are the one Right beside you Is where I belong From this moment on - You're the reason I believe in love - LL: I love it! My dreams Came true Because Of you From this moment As long as I live I will love you I promise you this I will love you As long as I live From this moment On (cheers and applause) (glass clinking) - LL: Wow.
- I suddenly don't feel so creepy.
- (laughing) - Listen, I'm not gonna lie.
I've had a crush on Shania from the beginning of time.
- And this is - (cheering) I don't know if you know this, but that was real.
So, um, Shania, you came here.
You're celebrating.
We have all your wonderful music.
This beautiful time, this beautiful moment.
How did that feel? It was beautiful.
And I really did feel swept off my feet.
