This week’s “Lip Sync Battle” features a showdown between two stars from Puerto Rico.

Global music superstar Luis Fonsi competes against supermodel Joan Smalls in the episode.

After delivering series low viewership performances during the first few weeks of February, “Lip Sync Battle” roared back with a nice gain this past week. The hope is that the Fonsi and Smalls episode will retain — if not build on — that increased audience.

The episode airs at 10PM ET on Thursday, March 1.

Ahead of the broadcast, Paramount Network shared a pre-show video and a teaser of Luis Fonsi’s “It’s Gonna Be Me” performance.

It also released numerous photos from the taping:
