We had a syncing feeling this was going to happen.

Spike TV has officially launched the “Lip Sync Battle” app, which will give fans of the faux singing contest — in which celebs like Channing Tatum get to show off their lip-syncing skills — a chance to do their own battles at home and on social media. The app, which is free and compatible with iPads and iPhones, gives people the ability to make their own lip sync videos to popular songs of all genres from rock to rap. Videos can then be edited and shared on Twitter and Facebook and other platforms. Lip synchers can challenge their friends to do battle by posting their own videos and compete to get to the most “likes” on social media.

“Lip Sync Battle” is the brainchild of actor John Krasinski, who introduced the idea on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” in 2014. Since the show premiered on Spike in April 2015, it has hit a high note as the cable channel’s top-rated original series.
