Lip Sync Battle Is Back

Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps has done it, actress Anna Kendrick and TV host Michael Strahan too. Now is your chance to take center stage and enter the County’s Lip Sync Battle at this year’s Halloween celebration. Both solo acts and groups are invited to participate.

The battle for employees is similar to the popular Spike TV show of the same name. In the first round, each entrant will perform one song. The top two contenders with the loudest crowd applause will advance to the second and final round where they will act out a second song to clinch the championship.

Contestants will be selected on a first come, first serve basis. To enter, send an email with the following: the names, titles and department of everyone on your team, and the titles of two songs you’d perform.  Finalists will be announced on InSite on Monday, Oct. 24.

Lip Sync Battle contenders will grab the mic during a carnival-themed Halloween festival at the County Operations Center on Oct. 31. Dubbed “Carn-evil,” the fair with a wicked twist will feature activities including a frightening fun house, ghoulish games and photo booth.

Carnevil and Lip Sync Battle are just two of the Halloween hijinks planned. Show off your spooky and kooky workplace decorations by emailing a photo to, and it may be featured on InSite. And the grand finale - the County’s annual Halloween costume contest. Start crafting or shopping for a creepy, creative or extraordinary outfit, and keep your eyes peeled to InSite for details on how to submit a photo and enter the contest in the week leading up to Halloween.
