Austin Mahone and Wild ‘N Out” head honcho Nick Cannon.
On Season 5 of “Wild ‘N Out,” numerous rappers stripped Nick Cannon of his championship belt, but on Season 6, the bossman will have to contend with a totally new type of opponent: The Teen Heartthrob. E! News announced this morning that 17-year-old pop star Austin Mahone will soon go to battle on MTV2′s premier improv show, and we think it would be wise of Nick not to underestimate his competition.
When “Girl Code“‘s Nicole Byer challenged Mahone to a dance-off on the 2014 Grammy Awards red carpet, he was more than ready to bust out his B-boy moves, so the guy’s bound to bring that same spontaneity to the “Wild” stage. Plus, the “Mmm Yeah” crooner will have plenty of Mahomies present at the taping to cheer him on! That’s right, fans can possibly score tickets to the February 13 taping in New York City — all you have to do is click on this link and enter promo code “AUSTIN.” So what are you waiting for? Austin needs your support!
Go put your bid in for a chance to see Austin duke it out with Nick, plus check out the red carpet moment he allllmost busted out The Worm.
