Inspired by the viral video phenomenon #LipSyncChallenge, the new special LIP SYNC TO THE RESCUE, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, star of CBS’ hit comedy THE NEIGHBORHOOD, will be broadcast Monday, Sept. 9 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Also, country music superstar Luke Bryan is featured on the show when he surprises the Saratoga County, N.Y. deputy sheriff’s office and helps them redo their original lip sync video. LIP SYNC TO THE RESCUE is an interactive countdown special featuring first responders channeling their inner pop stars and lip-syncing to hit music, a trend that began with the viral video sensation #LipSyncChallenge. Fans are rallying around their favorite videos from departments around the country from Norfolk, Va., to Seattle, Wash., and Skokie, Ill., to Greenville, Texas and more. The top 30 videos were selected from over 1,000 lip sync videos, and over 11 million votes have been cast to date to determine the top 10 that will be revealed during the broadcast. Once the final two videos are announced, viewers will vote LIVE via Twitter to determine the winner. The winning department will be awarded $100,000, and the runner-up will get $50,000, to take back to their communities.
