Watch Every Non-Eleven Stranger Things Kid Rock Out on Lip Sync Battle

The latest episode of Spike’s Lip Sync Battle is getting a visit from the Upside Down. The stars of the hit Netflix show, with one Eleven-sized exclusion, all show up to move their mouths and dance around in time with some of their favorite songs. And god help me, it’s the cutest thing I’ve seen all week.

Spike has released clips of four performances from the Stranger Things-themed episode of Lip Sync Battle. It stars Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Noah Schnapp (Will), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), and Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), accompanied by a gaggle of much-older background dancers. Sadly, Millie Bobby Brown didn’t join then, though I’m not surprised. Some of the routines are cute but a little efforted, like Wolfhard’s “Buddy Holly” by Weezer... while others, mainly McLaughlin’s tribute to Lip Sync Battle co-star LL Cool J, are actually pretty impressive. He’s not a bad dancer.

Mostly, though, I’m here for Matarazzo standing awestruck and pointing at sharks while channeling “50 Ways to Say Goodbye” by Train. Life can always be made better when you have Dustin from Stranger Things freaking out about women’s butts.

Now, to be honest, I personally think Lip Sync Battle is kind of stupid, but I can’t help but enjoy it when the Stranger Things kids are involved. The episode airs tonight, and Stranger Things returns this Halloween.

Skipping the article because I haven’t seen the episode yet. But I just want to say: Lip Sync Battle is amazing and always cheers me up. I love that random famous people just go all out goofy. The banter and attitude towards each-other is just... Well, a thing that keeps giving.

Here, have three of my favorites:

Channing Tatum- Let it go

Anne Hathaway- Wrecking ball

Terry Crews

(The spidey one is ofcourse on the top as well. But everyone is sharing that one so)
