MTV’s colossal TV and social media hit Lip Sync Battle is back with a vengeance as Season 2 opens with an epic clash between Channing Tatum and his wife, actress Jenna Dewan Tatum (MTV, 21:35 CAT, Monday 8 February).

The “Magic Mike” muscleman gets well and truly in touch with his feminine side in a high octane display of girl power as he busts some killer moves dressed as Beyoncé, before performing a show-stopping rendition of “Let It Go” tricked up as “Elsa” from “Frozen”. Not letting him win that easily, wife Jenna holds her own, grinding away to Ginuwine’s “Pony” and giving her better half a lap dance to remember – although a surprise appearance by Queen Bey herself could tip the scales in Channing’s favour.

 

Hosted by the multi-talented LL Cool J with commentary by supermodel Chrissy Teigen, Lip Sync Battle has become a global success story for Viacom since launching on Spike TV in the USA in 2015.  Based on an original idea by John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant (both of whom have performed on the show) the series has become a global ratings and multiplatform superstar and is the most-watched original series in Spike’s history.

 

A-list stars and pop culture stars who went head-to-head in Season 1 included Emily Blunt vs Anne Hathaway, Common vs John Legend, Queen Latifah vs Marlon Wayans, and Jimmy Fallon vs Dwayne Johnson.  Among the most memorable performances are Will Arnett’s rendition of “Everything is Awesome” from the Lego Movie, Joseph-Gordon Levitt channelling Janet Jackson in “Rhythm Nation”, and John Legend getting in touch with his inner MC Hammer.  Other celebrities featuring on the show have included Mike Tyson, Anna Kendrick, Justin Bieber, Taraji P Henson and Malin Ackerman.

 

Commented Dillon Khan, Channel Head, MTV, “Lip Sync Battle is the funniest, most exciting and original reality format brought to TV in the last year. Season 2 promises to top Season One with some of the key players in the industry delivering jaw-dropping performances that will keep you talking for days on end. This is not to be missed.”

 

Get your regular dose of Lip Sync Battle on MTV (DStv channel 130) every Monday from 8 February at 21:35 CAT and on MTV Base (DStv channel 322) at 16:30 CAT every Fridays from 12 February.
