In Nickelodeon’s Lip Sync Battle Shorties: Holiday Special, three kids will lip sync along to huge hits from superstars like Bruno Mars (24K Magic), Justin Bieber (Drummer Boy), and Kelly Clarkson (Underneath the Tree), with themed costumes, dancing, and performances to try to take home the Iced Out Mic!
Lip Sync Battle Shorties: Holiday Special will be full of energy, entertainment and holiday spirit. Hosted by Nick Cannon and his sidekick, the kid-favourite, singing, dancing, social media sensation JoJo Siwa, Lip Sync Battle Shorties will celebrate kids’ top artists. JoJo Siwa will provide commentary on each performance, and the episode will also feature the Shorties Dance Crew, a 10-person backup crew that has mastered all styles of dance from break-dancing to ballroom, plus a special appearance by Fifth Harmony!
“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.
Lip Sync Battle Shorties lets three talented real-life kid participants personalize their performances, allowing them to make decisions on all creative elements, from song and costume selection, to choreography and staging, so that they can perform on-stage like their favourite artists.
