BURBANK, Calif.-Oct. 4, 2017-Nickelodeon treats fans to all the fright and fun of Halloween in Lip Sync Battle Shorties Halloween Special, airing Sunday, Oct. 15, at 7:00 P.M. (ET/PT).

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, from Staten Island, NY, performing one of her favorite songs "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga; Ethan from Salt Lake City, taking on "Immortals" by Fall Out Boy; and Kea 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.
