The search is on to find the player with the best off-the-field talent. CBS and Sports Illustrated have teamed up with the NFL Players Association to discover players who can sing, juggle, perform magic, or any other unique skill.
Players have been submitting their talent auditions to be used in qualifying rounds hosted on SI.com. Beginning Dec. 1, the player submissions will be rolled out online over four weeks, allowing fans to cast a vote for their favorite performances.
The top players from teams who have been eliminated from the postseason who shine online will be flown to Hollywood to compete in a live one-hour special on CBS and CBS All Access on Thursday, Jan. 25 at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT. During the show, a panel of judges will critique each player's performance before viewers vote live online at CBS.com to determine the MVP: MOST VALUABLE PERFORMER. The winner will be revealed at the end of the show.
