Ben Higgins is showing a side of himself he’s never showed before. The Bachelor Nation star is set to appear on this week’s episode of Lip Sync Battle, and he’s channeling his inner ’80s rock god to do it.

Higgins will take on season 21 Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Thursday, July 19, at 9pm ET/PT. His song of choice? Bon Jovi’s 1986 hit “You Give Love A Bad Name.”

For the performance, he chose a full retro get-up, including a zebra-print shirt, leather pants, a fringed jacket, and cowboy boots. But it’s his long, wild hair that really completes the transformation.

“I thought you were handsome with short hair, and then I was like, ‘Wow, he’s really handsome with short hair,” co-host Chrissy Teigen quips in a sneak peek from the episode. It sounds like she’s not impressed with his new (thankfully temporary) ‘do.

Lindsay, for her part, is shown dancing with the show’s other host, LL Cool J, who can’t help but sing along to the epic ’80s rock anthem. She’ll perform Salt-N-Pepa’s “Shoop” on Thursday’s ep.

Higgins and Lindsay are in good company as contestants on Lip Sync Battle. Past competitors include Gigi Hadid, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, Dwayne Johnson, Jimmy Fallon, Anna Kendrick, John Krasinski, Alison Brie, Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan, Kaley Cuoco, the cast of Stranger Things, and many more.
