Guess what Lip Sync Battle and Nickelodeon fans! When deciding between trick or treat this Halloween season, you will definitely want in on this treat! Nickelodeon is treating fans to all the fright and fun of Halloween in Lip Sync Battle Shorties Halloween Special, airing Sunday, Oct. 15, at 7:00 P.M. (ET/PT). The all-new episode will be hosted by the one and only, Nick Cannon, featuring real-life kid participants syncing and dancing their hearts out to their favorite pop songs, set against Halloween-themed stages.
As if that’s not the best part, there will also be a special surprise appearance by Rico Rodriguez from the hit show, Modern Family. He’s set to present the Lip Sync Battle Shorties winner with their very own Shorties blinged-out mic. How cool is that!?
In Lip Sync Battle Shorties Halloween Special, three kid-battlers from across the country will use their imagination to personalize their Halloween-themed performances. They get to make decisions on all creative elements, from song and costume selection, to choreography and staging. That means they can have anything from Halloween decorations to monster-themed costumes. The lucky kids that get to compete include: Serena, from Staten Island, NY, performing one of her favorite songs “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga; Ethan from Salt Lake City, taking on “Immortals” by Fall Out Boy; and Kea from Honolulu, lip syncing “Rolex” by Ayo & Teo.
As if that isn’t enough fun already, Rico and Nick won’t be the only special faces you get to see part of the action. JoJo Siwa joins them as a commentator along with the Shorties Dance Crew who will be acting as a backup crew. They’ve mastered all styles of dance from breakdancing to ballroom. And for even more Halloween fun, they’ll be doing a performance of the classic “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker Jr.
“On Lip Sync Battle Shorties the kids are in charge, the performances come straight from their imagination. They’re so much cooler than we are!,” said executive producers Casey Patterson and Jay Peterson.
