The full Tom Holland vs. Zendaya performance on Lip Sync Battle is finally here.

A couple months back, the Spider-Man: Homecoming stars faced off in a special airing of Lip Sync Battle aired ahead of the MTV Movie and TV Awards. The clip went viral after Holland took it to the next level. But now, Holland and Zendaya’s full episode has arrived—including Zendaya’s side of the battle.

Zendaya comes out of the gate (and the plane) as Bruno Mars to perform “24k Magic” with the proper amount of trolling and charm. On any other night, her performance would’ve been a strong contender, but it wasn’t any other night.

In case you haven’t already seen it (and even if you have), Holland—who once starred in the West End production of Billy Elliot—took what might’ve been an entertaining rendition of “Singin’ in the Rain” and quickly pivots to “Umbrella,” channeling Rihanna. Not only can he dance, he sells it, throwing himself into it with an enthusiasm beyond what you normally see.

And it’s just as glorious as you remembered.
