Lip Sync Battle, Memphis Style (Discounted Tickets!)

Lip Sync Battle, Memphis Style (Discounted Tickets!)

Lip sync battles are officially "a thing" now. Coming up on April 14, you can witness a very Memphis edition of a lip sync battle at the Hard Rock Cafe.


Lip Sync Plus is an event co-hosted by the Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association (MIFA) and MLGW where five celebrity contestants will battle five lip sync-ers from the community. It's going to be amazing.

Tickets to watch the competition are $30 per person or two for $50, and the event benefits Plus-1, a utility assistance program run by MIFA and MLGW. So, go ahead and get your tickets, which include food, a drink, and photos on the red carpet. Or, take a chance on winning a pair of tickets. I have instructions on how to enter a bit further down. (Giveaway ended - congrats to Ryan!)

But first, let's meet our contestants. In one corner, we have five Memphis celebrities.

In the other corner, we have the four Memphians who garnered the most votes in Lip Sync Plus' online video contest, perhaps soon to be Memphis celebrities themselves.

  • Latasha Peebles
  • David Page
  • Aristarchus Neely
  • Carlie Lawrence

You can watch their entry videos and read about the prizes they're competing for here. Joe Birch and yours truly will serve as judges, and Katrina Coleman from the Memphis Comedy Fest will be the emcee.

Who will win this ferocious battle? Only one way to find out. Get your tickets here.

all i do is win

How To Win Tickets To The Show (Giveaway Ended)

If you want to enter to win a pair of tickets ($100 value) to Lip Sync Plus on April 14, just leave me a comment on this blog post and tell me which song you'd perform in a lip sync battle.

I'll do a random drawing on Friday morning and announce the winner on the "5 things to do" post on April 8 at approximately 9 a.m.


As a judge, I'm secretly hoping someone does some Disney.

"What does the fox say?" Would be awesome.

If I were to Lip Sync, it would be Whitney Houston's 'I Wanna Dance with Somebody'. I would go all out...curly hair, head band, loud colors and all!

Me personally, I am a Stephanie Mills fans so I would do Home from the Wiz or Whitney Houston's, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, they are two of my favorite performers. I am still fairly new to Memphis, and I am loving your "I Love Memphis" emails; you're certainly going to give life to my dreary social calendar. Keep up the great work. Lenora

I would perform the song 'Believe' by Cher! I hope I win I'm excited about the lipsync battle!

I like the show but can't figure out what the co-host is there for except to be half dressed and annoying... Her presence kills the show for me.
April 7, 2016 10:31pm
If I were to preform in a lip sync battle I would have to go with my main man Asher Roth. How could any of us forget I Love College. That's the song I would choose, and DOMINATE with

Obviously I'd have to perform Ghetto Cowboy, the most undervalued Bone song there is.
