PHOENIX (AP) — Jimmy Fallon is planning his own match-up on Super Bowl Sunday.

The host of NBC’s “The Tonight Show” is set to wage a lip sync contest with actors Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart during a special post-game episode at the Orpheum Theater in Phoenix.

The contest is just one of the acts planned for the show. Pop singer Ariana Grande is also slated to perform.

The show will air live following the game pitting the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks, an episode of “The Blacklist” and local newscasts.

Show representatives say tickets sold out online in less than three minutes with more than 42,000 people trying to snag one.

This marks the second time Fallon has taken “The Tonight Show” on the road.
