Nick Cannon is returning to the network that started it all!

The actor-comedian-host is adding a new gig to his expanding empire. The now ‘WildN Out’ star is set to host the Nickelodeon kid-version spinoff of ‘Lip Sync Battle,’ promptly titled Lip Sync Battle Shorties.

Variety is reporting that Nickelodeon has also casted 14-year old social media star JoJo Swia to help out Cannon as the co-host sidekick, with the show set to premiere in 2018. The spinoff will last a total of 10 epsidoes in its first season and will feature real-life kids lip-synching pop songs of their favorite artists.

Cannon got his start on the Nickelodeon network as a teen and speaking on his return to the family station, Nick stated:

I’m excited to host the first season of ‘Lip Sync Battle Shorties. It’s always a pleasure to work with my family at Nickelodeon.

Look out for the new sing off show in 2018 with early Halloween and holiday specials airing later this year.
