MTV has announced the premiere of a local version of its global entertainment TV show, Lip Sync Battle Africa.
The weekly show which will be recorded in Johannesburg, will go live in April 2016, with the first season comprising of 13 half-hour episodes featuring vocal showdowns between top celebrities and entertainment figures, complete with dancers, wigs, costumes, props and tons of swag.
Each battle will consist of 2 celebrities ‘syncing’ or miming to popular music tracks of their choice. Each contestant must sync to two songs – one of which will be by an African artist. The winner is chosen by the live studio audience.
Lip Sync Battle Africa will be hosted by two celebrities, following in the footsteps of the US version starring LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen. Names of the local hosts will be announced at a later date.
Global stars who have gone head-to-head on the show include Emily Blunt, Anne Hathaway, Common, John Legend, Queen Latifah, Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Justin Bieber and more.
