Nick Cannon To Host ‘Lip Sync Battle Shorties’
Nick Cannon has a new hosting gig!
The hardest working young man in show business will host “Lip Sync Battle Shorties,” a kids spin-off show of Spike TV’s “Lip Sync Battle” on Nickelodeon.
He’ll be joined by social media sensation JoJo Siwa, who’ll serve as Cannon’s sidekick providing commentary on each performance.
The 10-episode series, which features real-life kids lip-syncing pop songs in celebration of their favorite artists, will premiere in early 2018, with Halloween and holiday specials set to air later this year.
“I’m excited to host the first season of Lip Sync Battle Shorties, said Cannon. “It’s always a pleasure to work with my family at Nickelodeon. It’s going to be a lot of fun watching the kids lip-sync their favorite songs and perform like their favorite artists”.
The new gig comes six months following Cannon’s exit from America’s Got Talent. It also reunites Cannon with Nickelodeon, where he appeared on the network’s sketch show All That. Cannon created and continues to host Wild ‘n Out for Nickelodeon’s sister network MTV.
“Nick Cannon grew up on Nickelodeon and into one of the best hosts and comedic actors on TV. Along with his passion for music, he brings with him such an amazing understanding and enthusiasm for kid performers. We feel very lucky to have Nick at the helm of Shorties, we’re ready to rock!,” said executive producers Casey Patterson and Jay Peterson.
LL Cool J welcomed Nick to the “Lip Sync Battle” family.
Congratulations to Nick Cannon on another gig!
