MÖTLEY CRÜE’s Vince Neil To Join ‘Lip Sync Battle’ TV Show (UPDATED)

Lip Sync Battle is an American musical reality competition TV series that first made its debut on April 2nd, 2015, on the American cable network Spike, later known as Paramount Network. It ran for 5 seasons.

Believe it or not, word is that the celeb lip-sync show is being brought back this year and it’s rumored that among the new rebooted show’s contestants confirmed to take part includes the Crue’s troubled frontman Vince Neil.

On September 22, 2020, it was announced that the series would move to another ViacomCBS network as part of the Paramount Network’s now-scrapped planned shift to films. An official announcement is expected shortly to confirm the new home of the series, along with the full lineup of celeb contestants.

Neil, who just got busted lip-syncing at one of the Crue’s recent Atlantic City, New Jersey concerts, for a long time was very vocal about his detest for fake singers:

 In 2015, Neil vehemently denied doing lip-syncing ever:

“There is no lip-syncing in rock and roll; I mean, it just doesn’t happen,” Vince said. “So, it’s kind of stupid thing to even talk about, because, I mean, anybody who goes to the show can tell there’s no lip-syncing involved. It’s pretty lame.”

The idea for Lip-Sync Battle was first introduced as a recurring segment on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and later The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

A spokesman for the show reached out to TMD on 5/13/23, to give confirmation that Vince Neil and his team are 100% in contact with the show.

***UPDATED: Former Crue guitarist Mick Mars has launched a lawsuit against his ex-band mates, insisting that Vince Neil did lip synching the entire run of The Stadium Tour, along with Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee getting accused of using backing tapes for their instruments.
