Who doesn’t love to lip sync?! For that very moment in time, we can feel like we are the next Beyonce, Lady Gaga, or any one of the amazing musicians we all love listening and singing along to. There is no question as to why Spike’s show, Lip Sync Battle, which features some of our fave celebs battling it out amongst each other as they lip-sync some of the most outstanding songs, has become such a sensation. Well, get ready for some extra fun as kids will be taking the stage this time in Nickelodeon’s brand new show, Lip Sync Battle Shorties!
Nickelodeon is known for bringing out awe-inspiring masterpieces for all of its viewers to enjoy and Lip Sync Battle Shorties will certainly be another great hit for all viewers. In fact, Nickelodeon aired a special back in December also titled Lip Sync Battle Shorties which was hosted by Modern Family actress, Sarah Hyland and it received excellent feedback from viewers. Now, we get to see 10 episodes of talented kids getting up on stage and lip-syncing to some of their favorite tunes.
The news of the series pickup was announced at Nickelodeon’s 2017 Upfront Presentation on March 2, 2017 in New York City. Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group shared her excitement over the new series and said, “Lip Sync Battle Shorties is so illustrative of how kids have changed. Our research tells us this generation believes they are all one step away from being famous. This show celebrates real kids with real talent, but more importantly a passion to perform and the confidence to do it.” (source: press release)
Lip Sync Battle Shorties is set to begin production later this year with a premiere set for the fall. According to the press release, “Kid participants on Lip Sync Battle Shorties can personalize their performances, allowing them to make decisions on all creative elements from song and costume selection, to choreography and staging. Each episode will feature three talented real-life kids, the Shorties Dance Crew and a host that will be announced soon.”
This is such phenomenal news and we know that we all will be having a blast and jamming out as we watch Lip Sync Battle Shorties on Nickelodeon! Comment below and tell me or tweet me at @alexisjoyvipacc, what is your favorite song to lip-sync to?
