FalPals, rejoice! One of the most popular segments on "The Tonight Show" is about to become a series.
On Thursday, Stephen Merchant and Jimmy Fallon announced that "Lip Sync Battle" is coming to Spike TV, and, like the wildly successful segment on the show, this new half-hour program will feature different celebrities pretending to sing their favorite songs for bragging rights. Fallon will executive produce and perform along with Merchant and "The Office" star John Krasinski.

"Lip Sync Battle" will start filming in January and debuts April 2015, according to Deadline.com.
