The producers of CBS’s ‘LIP SYNC TO THE RESCUE’ have chosen the Paris Fire Department‘s Lip Sync Challenge video to be included in the voting phase of the Special.
Inspired by the recent viral video phenomenon #LipSyncChallenge, CBS announced a new one-hour entertainment special, Lip Sync to the Rescue, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, star of CBS’ hit comedy The Neighborhood, to be broadcast later this year on the CBS Television Network.
Lip Sync to the Rescue is an interactive countdown special where viewers vote for their favorite video of performances featuring first responders channeling their inner pop stars and lip-syncing to hit music, a trend that began with the #LipSyncChallenge. The winner will be announced LIVE during the broadcast.
#LipSyncChallenge began as a fun way for police, sheriff, fire department and EMTs to engage with their communities by creating lip sync music videos and challenging other departments to do the same. Now, on Lip Sync to the Rescue, fans can rally around their favorite videos when the first round of voting begins on CBS.com this month.
LIP SYNC TO THE RESCUE will be filming in Los Angeles this summer.
