“Orange Is the New Black’s” Samira Wiley goes ’90s to the max for “Lip Sync Battle,” and we’re obsessed

We love us some Samira Wiley, especially when she’s donning baggy overalls and throwing back to the ’90s in Lip Sync Battle against fellow OITNB star Laverne Cox!

These battles are famously awesome. Remember when Beyoncé joined Channing Tatum on stage? Well damn, they get better every time! And as one of our favorite LGBT role models (who’s engaged to OITNB writer Lauren Morelli), Wiley just emits ALL the good vibes. Whether or not you can recall the Naughty by Nature smash hit “O.P.P.”, it’s undeniable that her lip sync is a slam dunk. And if you like choreographed dancing (who doesn’t?)…there’s a lot of it!

Are you ready for this giant tease of what’s to come?


Phew! Laverne’s expression when Wiley blows a kiss in her direction is priceless. Let’s re-visit it.


Soooo you probably want to catch the whole episode, yes? You can do that, because this absolutely essential viewing airs on Spike TV this Wednesday.

Can’t wait to see more of this face…

… doing this!


Seriously guys, this clip made our Monday morning complete and we hope it did the same for you.
