Imagine watching Lip Sync Battle, then watching Carpool Karaoke, then saying, “I like these things, but I wish they were one thing.” Well, your dreams have come true! 

Spike TV has reportedly greenlit a show titled Caraoke Showdown, which will feature host Craig T. Robinson picking up contestants on the street and making them perform some karaoke.

According to THR, “During various rounds of game play, contestants must belt out their favorite tunes, finish the lyrics or act out songs for cash. Celebrity guest appearances will add surprise as the contestants never know what to expect next.”

Howie Mandel is executive producing the new series, which will join Lip Sync Battle in Spike’s new karaoke-themed block of programming. The Late Late Show with James Corden is currently scoring big ratings with Carpool Karaoke, which welcomed Coldplay’s Chris Martin on earlier this week.
