Kaley Cuoco did an impersonation of Britney Spears on Thursday’s "Lip Sync Battle." Watch above.

For the episode’s second and final round, during which the celebrities dress up, Cuoco recreated Spears’ famous “I’m A Slave 4 U” VMA performance, which became an instant classic when it was released in 2001. For the performance now, Cuoco wore an outfit almost identical to Spears’ green midriff-baring get-up. She even donned a long blonde wig.

But that wasn’t all. With the stage decorated to have the same raw jungle vibe as the music video, Cuoco descended onto the stage from a vine. The choreographed routine also featured a snake around the actress’ neck, just like Spears had, and it was very much alive.

Interestingly, even though the throwback performance seemed to go over well with the millennial-filled audience, it was Josh Gad who won the battle. As Gossip Cop reported, Gad spoofed Donald Trump while lip syncing “I Touch Myself,” and had a surprise (and surprisingly intense) makeout with Cuoco’s “The Big Bang Theory” co-star Johnny Galecki. Spears herself hasn’t commented yet, but Gossip Cop is pretty sure Cuoco would be the winner her book.
