Stranger things are happening on the Lip Sync Battle stage this Thursday.
On this week’s episode of the Spike TV musical showdown, the stars of Stranger Things are here to prove that battling the Demogorgon is just one of their many talents. In the preview clip below, Finn Wolfhard — who plays Mike Wheeler on the supernatural Netflix series — displays his musical prowess as he lip syncs Weezer’s punk-pop tune “Buddy Holly” and plays electric guitar (though, like his mic, it does appear to be unplugged).
Wolfhard takes on not one but three of his co-stars as Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair) performs a rendition of LL Cool J’s “I’m Bad” — complete with hip rolls — and Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson) and Noah Schnapp (Will Byers) also take to the stage.
Wolfhard is no stranger to the stage or strings, having graced the crowd at a Mac DeMarco gig over the weekend. The musician brought the young actor out to play guitar during his set in Atlanta. Stranger Things co-star Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler) shared a video of his performance on Instagram.
Wolfhard had previously declared his fandom for the Canadian singer-songwriter by posting a video of himself playing an acoustic cover of “Salad Days” on Twitter.
Catch the Stranger Things kids battle it out Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on Spike TV.
