New York, NY, March 3, 2015 – “Lip Sync Battle” fans have a reason to rejoice! Spike TV has greenlit eight more episodes of highly-anticipated new, original series, “Lip Sync Battle.” The series is based on the cultural phenomenon of lip sync battling seen by millions on television and online.
“Lip Sync Battle” debuts on Thursday, April 2 at 10:00pm ET/PT and features celebrities going head to head – lip-syncing the song of their choice – battling for the coolest bragging rights on the planet.
The featured performers for the new eight episodes include Emily Blunt, Anne Hathaway, Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Justin Bieber, Queen Latifah, Will Arnett, Alison Brie, Mike Tyson, and Terry Crews among others to be announced shortly.
Spike TV taped 10 episodes of “Lip Sync Battle” last month in New York showcasing the lip syncing skills of many of the biggest names in entertainment including Jimmy Fallon, Dwayne Johnson, Anna Kendrick, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, John Krasinski, Meghan Trainor, Common and more. The new eight battles will be taped in Los Angeles this month.
“Lip Sync Battle” is hosted by entertainment icon and two-time GRAMMY Award-winner LL COOL J with pop culture sensation Chrissy Teigen serving in the role of a color commentator.
From Entertainment Weekly we learned that..
What began as a fun segment on Jimmy Fallon’s late night shows—everyone remembers Emma Stone’s epic performance—is now growing into a full-fledged series of its own. With John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant signed on as two of the producers, Lip Sync Battle will debut on Spike on April 2.

NCIS: Los Angeles star LL COOL J on fame, family and falling for Paris
Thirteen albums. Millions of records. Nine Grammy nominations, two Grammy awards, three Grammys hosted. Twenty-plus movies. An autobiography, a children’s book, a New York Times best-seller fitness book. And now six—and counting—seasons of NCIS: Los Angeles, which is watched by 15 million people every week, including an untold number of Ladies (Who Still) Love Cool James.
As for the numbers that really matter: four kids with one wife, Simone, to whom the 46-year-old star has been married for almost 25 years. And what better place than Paris to do all that math with the man himself, who opened up about fame, family and his final frontier. Make that frontiers, plural. But who’s counting?
Welcome to Paris! What do you like to do here?
My favorite thing is the Louvre. Every time you go, you discover something new. You can spend a whole day with the Mona Lisa or go to Napoleon’s apartments or go to Egypt and check out all the booty he brought back.
