WATCH: Get a Set Tour of ‘Lip-Sync Battle’ with Host Chrissy Teigen
“This show is really just about us putting magic into a world that could use a little fun,” explained LSB host LL Cool J at the show’s August 6 taping with guests and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars America Ferrera and Amber Tamblyn.
Teigen added, “The celebrities who come in to perform are excited. So we want their experience to be as authentic and fun as possible. They’re devoting themselves to the show, so the least we can do is return the favor.”
Like Ferrera, who threw down on Instagram:
The whole lip-sync battle thing started on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and turned into “a pure old-school comedy/variety extravaganza,” executive producer Casey Patterson told THR. “It’s a unique ask. People aren’t coming here to just sit on the couch and tell stories for seven minutes. We’re all about being loose and funny and committed to the joke all the time.”

Lip-Sync Battle premieres in October on Spike TV.
