NICKELODEON PREMIERES "LIP SYNC BATTLE SHORTIES HALLOWEEN SPECIAL," ALL-NEW HALLOWEEN-THEMED EPISODE, ON SUNDAY, OCT. 15, AT 7:00 P.M. (ET/PT)

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 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, 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.

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(R)-nominated Lip Sync Battle on Spike TV 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.
