Lip Sync Battle Live Special

Lip Sync Battle Plots Live Special With Olivia Munn and More 'All-Stars'

Sure, celebrities can pretend to sing. But can they do it… live?

Spike TV on Wednesday announced Lip Sync Battle: All-Stars LIVE, a one-hour special featuring returning favorites from the past two seasons. Olivia Munn, John Legend and Terry Crews will all compete, with more celebrities still to be announced.

The live special airs Sunday, Sept. 11 at 8/7c, and the winners will be determined by fans’ votes from home. The special also serves as a lead-up to Lip Sync Battle‘s Season 3 premiere, airing Wednesday, Oct. 2 at 9 pm.

“Our show is always wild, but for this show, the returning champs already know how to play and win and are focused on giving an over-the-top performance,” executive producer Casey Patterson said in a statement. “Being LIVE for first time ever means anything can happen and we are so excited that our fans at home will be voting LIVE for the winner.”

    Do you mean October 5? October 2 is a Sunday.

    Olivia Munn needs to be on TV 24/7.

    I like that they’re adding a voting element, because their “winners” have always been questionable at best.

    Unfortunately, I feel like getting the actual “favorites” from past episodes to return might be a tall order, so we’ll have to settle for the second-tier competitors.

    However, my dream list of LSB All-Stars would be, in no particular order:
    Anne Hathaway
    John Krasinski
    Emily Blunt
    Anna Kendrick
    Joseph Gordon-Levitt
    Jenna Dewan-Tatum
    Zachary Quinto

    There have been other strong competitors, but these seven are the ones who not only put on a great show, but also remembered to really perform the lyrics of the song (after all, the competition is about lip syncing – it’s right there in the title)

    Six words regarding returning favorites:

    – Anne Hathaway.
    – The Rock.
    – Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

    Make this happen!

  5. Sync Battle has become one of my favorite shows. I have been hooked since Season one.
