Looks like Taylor Swift isn’t Def Leppard’s only fan of the famous-blonde-and-beautiful variety.

In a preview of this week’s Lip Sync Battle, Malin Akerman rocks out to the English rock band’s 1987 hit “Pour Some Sugar on Me.”

The 27 Dresses star’s low-cut, all-black outfit and bright red lipstick seem rather subdued in comparison to the leather chaps and Union Jack tank top combo her opponent Stephen Merchant sports in his performance of Christina Aguilera‘s “Dirrty.”

However, Akerman still has a second chance to step up her game, and we’re counting on her second performance to blow Merchant’s out of the water. May we suggest doing, say, 27 costume changes? (If nothing else, Blake Lively would be impressed.)

Lip Sync Battle airs Thursdays (10 p.m. ET) on Spike.
