Get ready comedy fans; things are about to get crazy in April 2015 when Jimmy Fallon, John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant come to television with their own show. It’s called Lip Sync Battle and it’s coming to televisions near you in just a few short months. The late-night bit that Fallon likes to do with some of his guests is such a success that it’s been ordered for a season as its own show. The purpose of the show is to have celebrities sound off (see what we did there?) in a battle of the lip syncing type to some of the most famous songs of the moment.
All three will serve as producers and they will also take the mic and do some performing of their own. Other information about the show has yet to be announced, but it does seem that it’s happening rather quickly. It was just announced that the show is actually going to be taped in January, which is just over 5 weeks away.
“Lip Sync battling is one of the coolest things happening in pop culture right now and already has a huge fan base thanks to the amazing talent involved. We’re thrilled to be in business with producers as talented as Jimmy, John and Stephen as Spike broadens its programming in new and exciting ways,” said Jay Patterson of Matador.
There is no word yet on who might come to star on the show and battle one another, but given the celebrity power behind the show at the moment, we are willing to bet some pretty big names are going to stop by and do a little singing. These are some famous, funny guys; and people are going to want to spend some time working with them since everything they do is so successful.
