Lip Sync Battle is about to get a G-rated update: Spike and Nickelodeon announced Monday that they’re working together to launch Lip Sync Battle Jr., a special that will pit kids against each other to lip-sync their hearts out.
Jimmy Fallon first introduced lip-sync battles on The Tonight Show, and the segment later became its own wildly popular Spike TV show in April 2015. LL Cool J hosts the series, which has featured lip-sync-offs between stars like Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum, Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt, and Dwayne Johnson and Jimmy Fallon.
“Lip Sync Battle’s multigenerational appeal is our favorite part of the show and the whole Lip Sync Battle family is very excited about developing a new music based, comedy variety format to showcase how much our Lip Sync Battle kids rock,” executive producers Casey Patterson and Jay Peterson said in a statement.
Lip Sync Battle Jr. will debut on both Spike and Nickelodeon later this year. The grown-up version currently airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
