Nick Cannon and JoJo Siwa Face-Off Backstage at ‘Lip Sync Battle Shorties’ (Exclusive Video)

TheWrap goes behind the scenes of the “Lip Sync Battle” spinoff as Nick Cannon and JoJo Siwa lip sync to Kris Kross and Michael Jackson.

TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell went backstage with Nick Cannon and JoJo Siwa, hosts of the upcoming Nickelodeon game show “Lip Sync Battle Shorties,” a kids spinoff of the hit Spike celebrity show.

The hosts showed off their colorful new set, which is adorned with cupcakes, video games, and neon lights. It also has plenty of rehearsal space for the show’s energetic young contestants to practice the dance moves they’ll perform while lip syncing to their favorite songs.

“This is the place where kids’ imaginations come true,” Cannon said. “You have three shorties battling it out with their favorite song to sync to, and the audience chooses who is the best performer for the night is and gets to go home with an iced-out mic.”

Check out the set of the new show and watch Cannon and Siwa have a lip sync battle of their own in the clip above.

“Lip Sync Battle Shorties” airs Fridays at 7:30 on Nickelodeon.
