Lip syncing is totally our thing – we do it in the car, with our friends, and anytime one of our favorite songs comes on, so it’s clear to see why Spike’s highly-acclaimed and Emmy-nominated show, “Lip Sync Battle” became such a massive hit amongst all viewers. The show has some of our favorite celebrities grabbing the mic (or dropping it) and battling out who is the best lip sync star. Now, kids are taking the stage as Nickelodeon is bringing out a one-hour special called “Lip Sync Battle Shorties” that will feature some amazing kids lip syncing to some of the greatest songs. The special is set to premiere on December 11th at 8:00 PM ET / PT with none other than “Modern Family” star Sarah Hyland as the host.
The music-filled and exciting special will also have four talented kid performers, the Lip Sync Battle Shorties Dance Crew, and a kid DJ, MC, and backstage correspondent. It’s a night filled with some awesome music and incredible kids jamming out to the latest and greatest hits.
The remarkable Sarah Hyland shared her excitement over hosting “Lip Sync Battle Shorties” and said, “After having such an awesome experience competing on Lip Sync Battle, I jumped at the chance to host Shorties. What could be more fun and exciting to see than the next generation of Lip Sync superstars showing off their sensational skills?”
Sarah Hyland also had the phenomenal opportunity of bringing her own lip sync skills to the stage as she recently filmed an episode for “Lip Sync Battle” that will air in this new season of the show.
According to the press release, “The happy surprise of Lip Sync Battle has been the reaction from kids and how many of them are watching the series with their families,” said Casey Patterson, Executive Producer. “Lip Sync Battle Shorties is a great opportunity for us to showcase kids’ love of music, comedy and variety. And what better host than the fun and hilarious Sarah Hyland, who recently gave it her all on the Lip Sync Battle stage. Our Shorties are involved in every aspect of their performances from song selection to choreography and staging. We’re having a blast!”
