Christina Aguilera will appear on her new exec-produced Tracks to launch the musical game show September 1 on Spike. She’ll perform in two back-to-back half-hour episodes on premiere night, following an earlier appearance that evening on the channel’s Lip Sync Battle: TMI.
Tracks, hosted by rapper/actor Shad Moss (a.k.a.

Special performances by Aguilera will be featured in both of the debut-night episodes, kicking off at 10:30 pm ET/PT following the singer’s appearance on Lip Sync Battle featuring Hayden Panettiere vs. Eva Longoria.
