It’s pretty clear the Ravens have the best collection of not-so-hidden talents in the NFL.
Three Ravens – kicker Justin Tucker, running back Alex Collins and defensive tackle Brandon Williams – will compete on the CBS talent show “MVP: Most Valuable Performer” a week from today, Thursday, Jan. 25, at 8 p.m. in Los Angeles.
After a nationwide vote, the three players were named finalists to compete to find the current NFL player with the best off-the-field talent.
There are only six acts, and the Ravens have half of them. So this is almost as much a competition between themselves as it is against the others.
Tucker will sing opera, Williams will probably sing something soulful and Collins will showcase his Irish dancing.
It’s an hour-long special that will take place live from Avalon Hollywood, and viewers can vote for their final three on CBS.com. The winner will be revealed at the end of the broadcast.
The Ravens will compete against Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (piano), Cleveland Browns guard Kevin Zeitler (dog tricks) and New England Patriots wide receiver Cody Hollister (singing) and Jacob Hollister (guitar), who are brothers performing together.
If the Patriots bros can’t make it because they have a game to focus on, or anybody else drops out, Denver Broncos nose tackle Domata Peko (guitar) and Arizona Cardinals defensive end Robert Nkemdiche (saxophone) are alternates.
Here are the Ravens’ audition tapes that fans voted on:
Looks like the players are pretty pumped up to show their stuff, so tune in and vote!
