Watch John Legend and Common face off on Spike TV's 'Lip Sync Battle'

Posted on

Spike TV

Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle is the singing competition for those who don’t really want to have to deal with the whole “singing” part, and EW has your first look.

The show puts celebrities in a head to head competition lip-syncing to the song of their choice in a battle for “the coolest bragging rights on the planet.” In the exclusive clip, see John Legend “singing” M.C. Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” in an effort to defeat rapper Common’s lip-sync of Lionel Richie’s classic, “All Night Long.”


The show is hosted by two-time Grammy award winner LL Cool J and commentated by Chrissy Teigen.

Lip Sync Battle premieres Thursday, April 2 on Spike TV.
