LL Cool J talks season 2 of Lip Sync Battle'
If Lip Sync Battle has taught us anything, it’s that America loves to watch people dress up, dance around, and mouth the word’s to someone else’s song—everyone from Anne Hathaway to Queen Latifah. But what does the show’s success mean for its second season?
Well, according to Lip Sync Battle host LL Cool J—who stopped to chat at the Spike TV’s Guys Choice 2015—not much has changed in terms of why celebs might not want to partake.
As for why some people don’t want to join in on the fun: “Sometimes it’s not that people don’t want to do something,” the host explained. “They could have different reasons. They may be nervous. There’s no telling. So all I can just tell people is that everybody that comes on the show has a great time. They’re all protected; we don’t try to make fun of anybody. It’s a lot of fun and it’s just a good time. And the audience loves the stars when they meet them and see them, so it’s great.”
What about LL Cool J’s favorite songs to lip sync? “I love ‘Welcome to the Jungle,’ I love ‘Jungle Boogie’ by Kool and the Gang—I guess you’re noticing a jungle theme—I love The Jungle Book, George of the Jungle, ‘Jungle Love.'”
Here’s hoping season 2 involves lots of trees.
