New York City better be ready for the live show of one of the episode of “Lip Sync Battle” that will be happening on July 13 at NYC’s Central Park. The live show is said to be in line with the celebration of the City Parks Foundation’s Summer Stage Festival.
“Lip Sync Battle,” a show airing on Spike TV and hosted by New Yorker LL Cool J will be at the event alongside resident Chrissy Teigen helping him out during the show as she provides commentary about the competing artists, Broadway World reports.
Executive producer of the show, Casey Patterson, said in a statement that the “Lip Sync Battle” was actually born and raised in NYC to they are honored to do the first-ever live show in Central Park. He added that the event will be free for their fans and it will be an “incredible music legacy” that people should watch out for, Entertainment Weekly shares.
The “Lip Sync Battle” stemmed from “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” as it was just a segment of the NBC show. However, it has become so popular as it featured a lot of artists battling it out by lip syncing different songs. When it was still just a segment from Fallon’s show, Fallon battled with artists such as Emma Stone, Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart.
The series that has been a spinoff by Spike has then become a regular and most-watched original series that it has been renewed for a second season. It was announced earlier this year that the show has an average of three million viewers per episode. Actors and actresses who have showed their lip-syncing talents are Anna Kendrick, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Anne Hathaway, and many more.
It has not been announced yet who will be the featured celebrities who will pit against each other during the Central Park Live show of “Lip Sync Battle.”
The show airs on Thursdays at 10 P.M. on Spike. The event in Central Park will be taking place on July 13 and the gates will be open to the public at 7 in the evening.
