"Like the rest of the world, I'm a big fan of these battles, but this show is going to bring it to a whole new level," Cool J, who is also a producer of the show, had said in a press release back in January.
The Rock, on 16 March revealed that he would be the first guest on the competitive "lip sync" show. One of the songs he would perform is Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off", from the album "1989". In the snippet from the show he posted on his Instagram account, The Rock is not only showing off his lip syncing skills, but also his famous dance moves, as Cool J enthusiastically cheers him on.
