Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki are both appearing on this Thursday night’s episode of Lip Sync Battle, but the Big Bang Theory co-stars will not be working together — Johnny will try to take down his former flame by making a guest appearance during Frozen star Josh Gad’s performance. Gad might be known for voicing Olaf the adorable snowman, but he’s not going to play nice by channeling the bubbly being made out of crystallized ice. Instead, Gad is going to do his best Donald Trump impression, which means that Kaley Cuoco might get a taste of what it’s like to be Megyn Kelly.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Kaley Cuoco is going to try to use her sex appeal to score a few points with the crowd when she lip syncs the Ludacris song “Move B***h.” In a preview clip for the January 28 episode of Lip Sync Battle, Kaley shows off her amazing abs by rocking a Calvin Klein sports bra with her cutoff shorts. The athletic actress gets low and throws in a little booty shake, prompting LL Cool J to express his surprise that he just watched “the sweet girl from The Big Bang” move like that.
“Where’s Penny?” Chrissy Teigen adds in the video below.
Unfortunately for Kaley Cuoco, her sexy dance moves might not be enough to defeat her Wedding Ringer co-star. According to ET Online, Josh Gad is pulling out all the stops for his performance of the naughty Divinyls tune “I Touch Myself.” Apparently, performing a song about self-love made the comedian think of a man who really seems to love himself: GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump.
In a second preview clip, Josh Gad really gets into his “I Touch Myself” performance while dressed up in a Donald Trump costume. As Gad strips off his jacket, he’s joined by a large group of female Trumps who form two kick lines. Gad proceeds to strip down to his boxers, which are made out of fake money, and he pulls a Miley Cyrus by taking a ride on a wrecking ball. However, his ball is a bit different than Miley’s lightweight hunk of iron: It’s rocking a luxurious, super-classy wig that looks like it’s made out of a mass of ratty hair extensions.
Things get even wackier when Johnny Galecki strides out onto the stage. Kaley Cuoco’s Big Bang Theory co-star is also dressed up like Donald Trump, but he has a sombrero hanging on his back. Johnny is all business at first, but things get messy when he and Josh Gad start to make out. As you can see, Kaley Cuoco really gets a kick out of the Donalds’ sloppy kiss, and it looks like LL Cool J is having a hard time believing his eyes.
Kaley Cuoco’s chance of beating that hilarious audience-pleaser seems pretty slim, but at least she looks like she’s having a great time watching her ex-boyfriend make out with Donald Trump. However, Kaley Cuoco might feel a bit betrayed by Johnny Galecki’s decision to help Josh Gad out—Johnny could have helped Kaley score a few extra points with Leonard and Penny fans by locking lips with her instead.
Perhaps Kaley should have tried enlisting a special celebrity guest of her own. As People reports, she did recently meet a group of people who possibly would have “been there” for her: the cast of Friends. Kaley sent nostalgic fans of the ’90s TV series into a frenzy when she shared the photo below that shows the Big Bang Theory cast posing with four-fifths of the Friends cast. The “Friends reunion” photo was taken during the NBC’s Must See TV: A Tribute to James Burrows special.
Kaley Cuoco is the Rachel Green of The Big Bang Theory, so just think of how awesome it would have been to see her performing the Friends theme song, The Rembrandts’ “I’ll Be There For You,” with Jennifer Aniston.
Kaley Cuoco also could have tried to talk The Bachelor star Ben Higgins into appearing on Lip Sync Battle with her. As Refinery 29 reports, Kaley recently showed her love for The Bachelor by wearing a pair of custom-made yoga pants adorned with Ben Higgins’ smiling face.
“In honor of tonight’s #bachelor episode, I’m wearing my one of a kind Ben-yoga pants courtesy of @goldsheepclothing,” Kaley captioned the Instagram photo above. “I’m obsessed and never taking them off #bachelornation.”
Based on the two Lip Sync Battle videos above, do you think Kaley Cuoco needed a special guest star of her own to beat Josh Gad?
