LL Cool J has a new hosting gig! 

Spike TV’s original series “Lip Sync Battle” will debut on April 2.  Based on the pop culture phenomenon of lip sync battling, the new series will feature celebrities going head to head – lip-syncing the song of their choice – battling for the coolest bragging rights on the planet.

“Like the rest of the world, I’m a big fan of these battles, but this show is going to bring it to a whole new level.  I’m thrilled to be working with Jimmy Fallon, John Krasinski, Stephen Merchant, and the entire team to host the show and can’t wait for the fans at home to join in!” said LL Cool J said in a statement.

Emmy-award nominee Beth McCarthy-Miller who is known for “Saturday Night Live,” “30-Rock,” “The Sound of Music Live,”  and “Modern Family,” will serve as Director. LL Cool J will also serve as a Producer on the show. The 10-episode series will tape in January in New York City.
