Today treated viewers to their own Lip Sync Battle preview on Thursday morning — complete with four blond wigs.

Model Chrissy Teigen first introduced the Spike TV series — premiering tonight — based on Jimmy Fallon's regular late-night bit in which celebrities go head-to-head, lip-syncing songs of their choice in a battle for bragging rights.

Next, the two NBC teams took the stage for their numbers: Carson Daly donned a platinum ponytail alongside Savannah Guthrie in a leather jacket for a gender-swapping "Summer Nights" from Grease, and Willie Geist, Natalie Morales and Al Roker tried their best to hide their eyes under blond bobs for Sia's "Chandelier."

"I'm humiliated for you," admitted Matt Lauer, who hosted the segment with the series' commentator, Teigen, while John Legend stood in the audience.

Lip Sync Battle premieres Thursday at 10 p.m. on Spike.
