The cast of Stranger Things will be taking over Spike’s Lip Sync Battle on Thursday night, with performances by Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo and Noah Schnapp.

McLaughlin even gets shirtless and shows off some impressive hip-hop dancing during his performance as a mini-me of Lip Sync Battle host LL Cool J.
