West Philadelphia’s Bryshere Gray, AKA Yazz the Greatest, is already known for his vocal stylings thanks to his role as rapper Hakeem Lyon on Fox's Empire. But this week, Gray will show that his talent for music doesn’t end with hip-hop.
In fact, his Taylor Swift impression is pretty dead-on.
Gray will appear on Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle on Thursday, May 18 at 10 p.m, where he will perform a rendition of Reading native Swift’s “We Are Never Getting Back Together,” complete with a parody of the song's video. According to an episode description, Gray will face off against Bruce Willis’ eldest daughter, Rumer, who appears on Empire as musician Tory Ash.
And as video shows, Gray wasn’t shy about going all-in on Lip Sync Battle:
Gray’s appearance on Lip Sync Battle will arrive one day following the season three finale of Empire, which airs Wednesday, May 17 at 9 p.m.
