 Comedian Michael V is set to host the newest Kapuso talent program "Lip Sync Battle Philippines".

 

Starting February 27, the hit American show, which was acquired locally by GMA-7, will feature two celebrities who will compete against each other in two rounds of lip sync battle.

"We prefer performers who are not singers. Para mismatch na agad siya. Doon natin makikita yung creativity and skills nila. Masaya ito kasi alam naman natin na lip sync ay isa sa mga paborito ng Pinoy 'yan," said Michael V.

He added that he accepted the project because he is a big fan of the original series on Spike TV hosted by Grammy Award winner LL Cool J. and supermodel Chrissy Tiegen.

"The reason why I accepted this role is because masaya siya. Nung hindi pa pini-present sa akin ito, nung napapanood ko pa lang sa cable, parang ang sarap gawin. Inisip ko agad na kung dito gagawin yan, sana ako na lang yung host."

Aside from hosting the show, Michael V and the crowd will determine each episode's winner.

"Isa sa mga mabigat na task na binigay sa akin is to actually judge kung sino ang mananalo. Na yung pilot namin, isa ata siya sa pinakamahirap na ginawa ko sa showbiz career ko," said Michael V.

On their pilot episode, Kapuso leading men Tom Rodriguez and Dennis Trillo will battle it out for the Lip Sync Battle belt.

Michael V said fans of both actors will be surprise of their performances.

"Kinareer talaga nung dalawa. Pareho na hindi pa nila ginagawa yung pinakita nila. Hindi ako nagulat sa performance nila kundi namangha ako. Mula sa pagpasok pa lang hanggang sa mga ginawa nila," he added.

Asked whom he wants to guest in the program, the comedian said he wishes to guest Rhian Ramos and Glaiza de Castro, Joey de Leon and Vic Sotto, and Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza.

"Number one choice namin sila (Maine and Alden) dahil alam naman natin na lip sync e. Gusto ko din makita magpagalingan ang tambalan ni Rhian (Ramos) and Glaiza (De Castro). We're hoping na sana pwede sila."

"Lip Sync Battle Philippines" is co-hosted by Iya Villania and directed by Rico Gutierrez. (MNS)
