Sir Ben Kingsley has some serious sync skills.

In a preview for the upcoming premiere of “Lip Sync Battle,” the actor suited up for a colorful rendition of Elton John’s “Rocket Man.”

Kingsley rocked out to the 1972 hit in a jeweled red, white and blue costume, complete with a sparkly piano.

The actor’s competition is actor John Cho, who is seen in the clip next to co-host LL Cool J, in western garb. It’s unclear what Cho’s performance will entail but he better bring his best game.

The showdown airs October 12 on Spike TV.
