Lip Sync Battle is taking on Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” recreating his famous music video for season 3 of the hit show — and EW has your first look at the trailer, above.

The performance finds host LL Cool J and commentator Chrissy Teigen facing off, dressed in costume and backed by dancers. Best of all, it shows the talent taking part in season 3, all of whom offer a peek at their lip-synching skills while sporting a version of Jackson’s famous, red jacket.

That talent includes Don Cheadle, Sir Ben Kingsley, Wanda Sykes, Uzo Aduba, Craig Ferguson, T.J. Miller, DeAndre Jordan, Jay Leno, Jeff Dye, Milla Jovovich, Ruby Rose, Lupita Nyong’o (see the teaser photo she posted to Instagram here), John Cho, Rob Riggle, America Ferrera, Sarah Hyland, Regina Hall, Laverne Cox, and Samira Wiley.

We know who to expect, but how will they perform? That is the question… See what tricks the stars have up their sleeves when LSBreturns to Spike with its season premiere on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. ET.
