Halloween comes early as Nickelodeon treats fans to all the fright and fun of Halloween in Lip Sync Battle Shorties Halloween Special, airing on Nickelodeon Southeast Asia on Friday 13th April 2018 at 5:00pm, as part of the networks' Half-O-Ween celebrations! The all-new episode, hosted by multi-faceted entertainer Nick Cannon, features real-life kid participants syncing and dancing their hearts out to their favorite pop songs, set against Halloween-themed stages. The special also features a surprise appearance by Rico Rodriguez (Modern Family), who will present the Lip Sync Battle Shorties winner with their very own Shorties blinged-out mic.


In Lip Sync Battle Shorties Halloween Special, three hyped-up kid-battlers from across the country use their imagination to personalize their Halloween-themed performances from eccentric decorations to monster-themed costumes. Those going head to head include: Serena Quadrato, from Staten Island, NY, performing one of her favorite songs “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga; Ethan Fineshriber from Salt Lake City, taking on “Immortals” by Fall Out Boy; and Kea Peahu from Honolulu, lip syncing “Rolex” by Ayo & Teo.


Viewers are in for a treat as Rodriguez surprises the contestants and joins them, along with host Cannon, show sidekick and commentator JoJo Siwa and the Shorties Dance Crew, for a Halloween celebratory performance of the classic “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker Jr.

“On Lip Sync Battle Shorties the kids are in charge, the performances come straight from their imagination. They’re so much cooler than we are!,” said executive producers Casey Patterson and Jay Peterson.

Lip Sync Battle Shorties lets three talented real-life kid participants personalize their performances, allowing them to make decisions on all creative elements, from song and costume selection, to choreography and staging. Each episode features the Shorties Dance Crew, a 10-person, in-house backup crew who has mastered all styles of dance from breakdancing to ballroom, and conclude with a special celebrity appearance and final performance from all the kids.


Based on the pop culture phenomenon of lip-sync battling, the original Spike Lip Sync Battle series features celebrities going head to head--lip-syncing the song of their choice--battling for the coolest bragging rights on the planet. The series is a ratings and multiplatform superstar for Spike and is the most-watched original series in the network’s history. Lip Sync Battle Shorties and the award-winning and Emmy-nominated series, Lip Sync Battle, are executive produced by Casey Patterson of Casey Patterson Entertainment, Jay Peterson of Matador Content, James Sunderland, John Krasinski, Stephen Merchant, Rick Schwartz and Eight Million Plus Productions.

Nick Cannon has entertained audiences in film, on television, on record, onstage and online for nearly 20 years. The talented artist continues to dominate all facets of entertainment as a comedian, host, actor, writer, director, executive producer, deejay, philanthropist and children’s book author.

The two-time Emmy®-nominated Lip Sync Battle on Spike TV and Channel 5 is a global multiplatform powerhouse that can be seen in over 140 countries worldwide. The critically-acclaimed series has delivered over one billion cross-platform views since launch, over two million YouTube Channel subscribers, over two million fans on Facebook, and is the most watched original series in Spike history.

JoJo Siwa is a true teen sensation with over 4 million subscribers on YouTube and a hugely popular range of JoJo Bows. After quickly realising she had a love for dance at age two, JoJo Siwa began taking classes in Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop and Ballet and featured in the number one Lifetime show, Dance Moms. Off screen, Siwa connects with her fans in several different ways: through social media, where she currently has over 5.9 million followers on Instagram, 11.4 million followers on Musical.ly, 282,000 Twitter followers and 654 million views on her YouTube channel; through her SIWANATOR club which stands against negativity and bullying; through her varied line of consumer products; and with her single, “Boomerang,” which has been viewed more than 290 million times.
