Lip Sync Battle is back this week Salt vs. Pepa push it real good. Cheryl "Salt" James spectacular performance of "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson. Sandra "Pepa" Denton follows up with her bad performance of "Firework" by Katy Perry. Salt-N-Pepa is a hip hop trio from Queens, New York. The group, consisting of Cheryl James ("Salt"),Sandra Denton("Pepa"), and originally Latoya Hanson who was replaced by Deidra Roper ("DJ Spinderella"), was formed in 1985 and was one of the first all-female rap group. The funniest part is ll cool j dancing in the back ground and Pepa didn't even look like she knew the song or tried to lip sync to it.
