Sarah Hyland, who once competed on Spike’s “Lip Sync Battle,” is returning to the stage in a different capacity.

According to Nickelodeon, the “Modern Family” actress will host the upcoming “Lip Sync Battle Shorties” special.

Set to air at 8PM ET/PT on December 11, the hourlong Nickelodeon special will “feature everyday kids lip syncing their favorite songs and celebrating their favorite artists.”

Spike, which airs the original “Lip Sync Battle,” will rebroadcast the “Shorties” special on December 14.

“After having such an awesome experience competing on Lip Sync Battle, I jumped at the chance to host Shorties,” said Hyland. “What could be more fun and exciting to see than the next generation of Lip Sync superstars showing off their sensational skills?”

In addition to Hyland as host, the special will feature four talented kid performers, the Lip Sync Battle Shorties Dance Crew and a supporting cast featuring a kid DJ, M.C. and backstage correspondent.
