Pro football players can do more than just tackle, block or score touchdowns. At least that seems to be the premise of the upcoming CBS live, interactive talent show called “MVP: Most Valuable Performer.” 

The one hour special, airing next week and hosted by LL Cool J, is looking to showcase the talent NFL athletes have off the field. This includes singing, dog tricks, and even Irish dancing. That’s right, Irish dancing. Evidently Baltimore Ravens running back Alex Collins loves to get his “Riverdance” on. 

Other participants include Ravens defensive tackle Brandon Williams (singing), Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (piano), Ravens kicker Justin Tucker (opera singing), Browns guard Kevin Zeitler (dog tricks), and Patriots siblings Cody and Jacob Hollister as a guitar/singing duo. 

If any of the players are unable to perform due to their football obligations, two alternates have been named. They are Denver Broncos nose tackle Domata Peko (guitar) and Cardinals defensive end Robert Nkmediche (saxophone). Considering the Patriots are 9 point favorites this weekend against the Jaguars, I’m pretty certain Peko will be competing. 

Players will perform their talent live from the Hollywood Avalon next Thursday, January 25, on CBS at 7 p.m. Viewers can vote from the final three on CBS.com with the winner being revealed  during the live broadcast. Good luck Domata!
