It’s official – lip sync battling has become a viral pop culture phenomenon and now it has even gotten its own show. But, in case you have ever wondered what actually happens behind-the-scenes, we’re bringing you the low down and inside scoops on this mega lip-sync karaoke hit television series:
Did you know that they let the stars choose whatever songs they want even though the music rights are crazy expensive? This way, viewers can get a glimpse into their favourite celebrities’ taste in music.
Did you know that participants get to choose their opponents? When Emily Blunt chose Anne Hathaway, the competition in between them was ridiculous because they were close friends in real life.
Did you know John Krasinski chose exactly how much fringe he wanted on his dress for him to pull off the performance?
Did you know that the celebrities would have weeks or months of notice, but only spend 30-45 minutes rehearsing on the actual stage.
Did you know that Dwayne Johnson was so psyched about the show that he created his own outfit, cut the songs down himself and even helped clear rights for his song.
Did you know that all opponents do not know the songs and production element so all the reactions on the show are genuine because they are seeing it for the very first time.
Did you also know there are no second takes? The celebrities give their all for the first and only take.
And don’t miss Justin Bieber rocking it out in an Ozzy Osbourne wig and makeup exclusively on Lip Sync Battle!
