What's the first thing you think of when you hear the words "Sir Ben Kingsley?" Gandhi? Gravitas? Academy Award winner?

Well, after the Season 3 premiere of Lip Sync Battle, it might be "Sir Elton John," once you see Kingsley's campy performance of his fellow Knight Bachelor's classic song "Rocket Man." It's got everything -- platform shoes, smoke and celestial-themed costumes.

Kingsley and Star Trek actor John Cho will go head-to-head on the season premiere, because when you hear the words "Sir Ben Kingsley," you think of "John Cho," right?
