Spike TV's hugely popular 'Lip Sync Battle' is coming to Carnival Cruise Lines, allowing travellers to unleash their inner rock star on the high seas.
'Lip Sync Battle Carnival' will be a faithful recreation of the TV show hosted by LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen, debuting aboard the Carnival Vista in December and rolling out fleet-wide through 2017.
"We're delighted to offer this exciting new entertainment activity to our guests," said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. "Lip Sync Battle Carnival takes the brand's participatory fun to the next level, providing our guests with a chance to showcase their talents and demonstrate their creativity with their fellow guests cheering them on."
Competitors are chosen at the beginning of the cruise and will have to face off in elimination rounds on the Lido Deck before the final two go head-to-head in the grand finale, complete with music, lighting effects, props, costumes and backup dancers.
Some of the more popular battles on Spike's 'Lip Sync Battle' have featured Channing Tatum dressed as Beyonce against his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Gigi Hadid's version of "Larger Than Life" featuring the song's original performers, the Backstreet Boys.
