We can’t promise that Jimmy Fallon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt or Ellen DeGeneres will make an appearance for UCCS’ first Lip Sync Battle.

Hosted by the entrepreneurship club, students will battle it out at Clyde’s on March 8.

The singing festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m. Clubs and students are encouraged to participate.

Music that will be featured includes songs from Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys.

This event is also sponsored by Locals Barbershop. Two winners will each receive a $100 gift card to the barbershop.

Sophomore business major and entrepreneurship club president Justin Hein said this event is a great way to learn more about the clubs on campus and have the chance to meet new and interesting people.

“I think events like this really bring together the campus,” Hein said.

“Students can connect with people they wouldn’t normally connect with and I enjoy creating relationships outside my little bubble, as I think others do too.”

Hein explained that a nonprofit organization called Connect Colorado Springs will be one of the main sponsors.
