Comedian Michael V is set to host the Philippine version of Viacom’s “Lip Sync Battle” alongside commentator Iya Villania.
The localized version of the show is expected to air on Saturdays, beginning late February after GMA Network acquired rights to air the original series from the US. The Philippines series will feature local celebrities going head to head – lip-syncing the song of their choice.
Two-time Grammy award winner LL Cool J and Christy Teigen are the hosts of the US version of the spin-off program on Spike TV based on the recurring segment on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
It has featured several performances from Anne Hathaway, Dwayne Johnson, Justin Bieber and Channing Tatum.
