Queen Latifah took on Marlon Wayans on Thursday night's Lip Sync Battle, and it was truly a battle of the sexes sexiness!

First Marlon was all in Latifah's personal space — and host LL Cool J — with his very touchy version of Pharrell's Happy. Then the Queen responded with a rendition of My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It) by En Vogue!

Later, Marlon tried a much smoother tactic with his version of Sam Smith's Stay With Me!

But Queen Latifah kept the old school flow by impersonating LL with his Rock The Bells! Even Marlon had to bow down to the Queen's skills!

See every performance and decide who YOU think won (below)!

No offence to Marlon Wayans, but when we heard he was taking on Queen Latifah on Lip Sync Battle, we figured he was dead in the water.

We mean, she has a rich music background, and he made Scary Movie!

But Lip Sync isn't about singing but about the bigger performance, and really making the space your own!

Of course, Queen Latifah probably didn't think he'd use her personal space for his performance of Happy!

See Marlon blur some lines while impersonating Pharrell (below)!
