This is unexpected… but totally welcome!
Lip Sync Battle has only been on the air for 10 months, but thanks to some heavy star power it's already solidified its place in pop culture.
Well, it looks like Nickelodeon wants a piece of Spike's pie, because it was announced on Monday that the networks are teaming up for Lip Sync Battle Jr!

Executive Producers Casey Patterson and Jay Peterson shared a joint statement praising their kid-friendly installment of the game show, saying:
"On the long list of wonderful surprises about Lip Sync Battle is our family co-viewing. Lip Sync Battle's multigenerational appeal is our favorite part of the show and the whole Lip Sync Battle family is very excited about developing a new music based, comedy variety format to showcase how much our Lip Sync Battle kids rock! It's all the fun of Lip Sync Battle, only smaller."
It's unclear whether LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen will be involved or who the celebrity guests will be, but we imagine Nick will cast from its wide pool of young talent.
Plus, we're hearing that other Viacom channels will be making their own versions of the show targeted at their key demos!
