Lupita Nyong’o brought the house down during an appearance on Lip Sync Battle, where she took on Regina Hall’s impression of The Weeknd’s “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)” with a steamy homage to Salt-N-Pepa’s classic, “Whatta Man.”

The Oscar winner pulled out all the stops as she enlisted a girl gang and shirtless firemen to back up her undeniably impressive dance moves and perfect lip-syncing.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Nyong’o is a triple threat — we already saw her show off her skills when she dropped a hot sixteen as her rap alter ego “Troublemaker” in September.

It looks like Salt-N-Pepa is having a moment as well — between Queen Bey, Blue Ivy, and Tina Knowles-Lawson dressing up as them for Halloween and Lupita bringing back “Whatta Man,” this is their week for throwbacks.

Watch Lupita’s full performance below.
