NBC puts six celebrities to the test in its new one-hour comedy variety series, I Can Do That.\ \ Comedian-actor-producer Marlon Wayans ("Scary Movie" franchise) serves as host. Six of America's brightest entertainers come together to compete and showcase their talents with breathtaking and unique acts - featuring skills they did not even know they had.
Joining Wayans for this summer series will be acclaimed dancer and choreographer Cheryl Burke ("Dancing with the Stars"), superstar recording artists Ciara, Joe Jonas and Nicole Scherzinger, national stand-up comedian Jeff Dye ("Last Comic Standing") and actor Alan Ritchson ("The Wedding Ringer").
Each week, in front of a live audience, the six cast members will enter a friendly rivalry as they choose their favorite act - what they think they can master - and who they would like to pair up with to master that act. The acts will span every variety of entertainment from song and dance to magic and danger. They will also feature some of America's biggest-name performers in guest-starring roles.
With their acts selected, the duos make their way into the training studio, where they work with their expert coach for five days to produce an amazing act to perform on the next week's show. After a week of intensive training, the celebrities return to the stage to perform their act in hopes of scoring the top slot on the night's scoreboard.
With no judges or eliminations, I Can Do That allows the cast to show off their untapped talents and enjoy a little friendly competition along the way. After six weeks of exploring their own unique talent range, one cast member will be revealed as the season's ultimate entertainer.

I Can Do That - I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That) - Netflix
“I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)” is a song written by Jim Steinman, and recorded by Meat Loaf with Lorraine Crosby. The song was released in 1993 as the first single from the album Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell. The last six verses feature a female singer who was credited only as “Mrs. Loud” in the album notes. She was later identified as Lorraine Crosby. However, she does not appear in the video, in which her vocals are lip-synched by Dana Patrick. Meat Loaf promoted the single with US vocalist Patti Russo. The power ballad was a commercial success, reaching number one in 28 countries. The single was certified platinum in the United States and became Meat Loaf's first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and on the UK singles chart, and was the best-selling single of 1993 in the United Kingdom. The song earned Meat Loaf a Grammy Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo.

The song reached number one in the charts in 28 countries. In most countries, it was Meat Loaf's first and only number one solo single. It was number one in the US for five weeks and sold over 1.4 million copies there. In the UK, it topped the singles chart, and at seven minutes and 52 seconds, “I'd Do Anything for Love” becoming the longest song on top there since The Beatles' hit “Hey Jude”. This was then broken when Oasis released their 1997 hit “All Around the World”, clocking in at 9 minutes and 20 seconds. In the UK, this was the biggest hit of 1993, selling 761,200 copies and staying at number one for seven weeks. As a result of its success, “Bat Out of Hell” was reissued in the UK, this time reaching the top ten (which it didn't achieve on its first release in 1979), meaning Meat Loaf achieved the rare feat of having two singles in the UK top ten at the same time. In Germany, the song is the 7th best-selling pop hymn ever. Critical reaction was mixed. AllMusic said that “Meat Loaf sells the borderline-campy lyrics with a full-throated vocal whose stirring sense of conviction brings out the heart hidden behind the clever phrases.” Meat Loaf won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo for the song.
