Spike is gearing up for a wild ride with the premiere of “Caraoke Showdown” on Thursday, January 12 at 10:30 PM, ET/PT following a new episode of “Lip Sync Battle.” This party-on-wheels has as its host, actor, and comedian Craig Robinson who literally drives the fun-filled ride that gives unsuspecting passengers the trip of their lives.
“Caraoke Showdown” takes groups of passengers on a musical journey to win money by competing in a variety of karaoke-style challenges. Throughout various rounds of game play, contestants compete for cash by belting out their favorite tunes, finishing lyrics or acting out songs. Also adding to the “anything can happen” atmosphere of “Caraoke Showdown,” special guests hop in from time to time and help our singers win big.
This musical trip isn’t just confined to inside the “caraoke.” Gameplay can take contestants on to the street recruiting pedestrians (and total strangers!) in a variety of music-related challenges. Each episode ends when the two teams with the most prize money ‘crash’ an event at surprise locations. The finalists then must perform karaoke in front of a crowd that ultimately gets to determine the grand prize winner.
