Taye Diggs' Epic Drag Performance Gives Channing Tatum a Run for His Money
The actor donned a cone bra to channel Madonna on Lip Sync Battle.
Madonna's legendary track "Vogue" has a long and controversial history, but Taye Diggs is reviving the classic with a lively and shockingly on-point rendition of the essential early '90s pop track. Taye's delightfully gender-bent version recreates an infamous Madonna look designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier. In fact, we'd go so far as to say it rivals the past drag performances of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum. Check out the preview of Taye's full number, below:
If you're looking to compare Taye's moves to the iconic choreography inspired by the Harlem ballroom scene, here's the original video:
And if you're really delving deep into this song's past, here's Madonna's notorious performance of the song at MTV's Video Music Awards in 1990:
Luckily, Taye's not entirely unfamiliar with the art of drag. In 2015, he played the eponymous hero(ine) in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway. Knowing his way around a wig and a pair of heels will only help him out in an upcoming contest against Ne-Yo on Lip Sync Battle.
Do you think Taye's interpretation will live up to the original? Find out when Lip Sync Battle airs the full routine on Thursday.
