The show is Lip Sync Battle… As host LL Cool J would say “This show is a music playground. Celebraties can let their hair down and be inspired by the songs and artists they love the most. You know what it is. You have seen it on TV… You have seen it online… You have seen it everywhere! The game is simple… Two stars lip sync two songs and the audience decides who did it best!”
The show debuted on the American cable network, Spike and it was a huge success. It’s produced by John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant and hosted by LL Cool J with the help of model Chrissy Teigen as a color commentator. Lip Sync Battle is really a spin-off of a bit introduced on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The idea for the show camed from an appearence Krasinski did on Late Night were they introduced the segment, that later Jimmy Fallon developed into a recurring segment on his show.
As you can guess the game is pretty simple… Two celebrities against each other in a lip syncing battle of two rounds. On the first round the stars only sing and dance, but on the second round they can go all out with costumes, dancers and musical guests! After these two rounds it’s the crowd that decides who the winner of the battle is.
The show is already on its second season with high rates. Actors, musicians, comedians, athletes and presenters all want to be a part of this show and release their stress and just have some fun! We had some good performances through almost 30 episodes… Jimmy Fallon, The Rock, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, John Legend, Myke Tyson, Terry Crews, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anthony Mackie, Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Tim Tebow, Kaley Cuoco and many more.
I will never forget The Rock singing “Shake it Off” by Taylor Swift or Anna Kendrick singing about the fact that John Krasinski stole her girl with some One Direction… Or Channing Tatum bringing Beyonce to show who “Run the World”. Hell, in the last episode model Gigi Hadid even brought two of the Backstreet Boys to sing with her! Or John Krasinski making a hell of a good Tina Turner and Jenna Dewan-Tatum giving her husband a look of her “Magic Mike” moves…
As you can see, it’s a fun show where celebrities can be crazy and fun, not serious! Although some of them are really competitive… But that only makes the show more fun. And don’t forget Chrissy Teigen that always has a (naughty) good word or comment to say to the stars! Give it a go if you’re looking for a fun show to watch that will make you laugh until you’re crying 🙂
