Former Dancing with the Stars champion Cheryl Burke will be competing against other celebrities in the NBC variety show this summer, in order to take home the best entertainer title.

Cheryl Burke left Dancing with the Stars to take part in I Can Do That!. Last December, Burke made the surprising announcement that she was exiting Dancing with the Stars after two wins and now her fans know why. The 30-year-old professional dancer is a special correspondent for Extra and she has bigger things coming.

It has been announced that singer Joe Jonas, Ciara, former Pussycat Doll and X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger, stand-up comedian Jeff Dye and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star Alan Ritchson will take part in a new summer variety show called I Can Do That!.

Marlon Wayans will serve as host of the series. In I Can Do That!, the stars will compete for six weeks and while there are no judges and no elimination, an ultimate entertainer will be crowned at the end of the show. Here is the concept behind the program: Every week, the six celebrities will be split into teams of two and must work together for 5 days to put on a show – from singing, dancing, magic tricks to daredevil acts.

I Can Do That! is an Israeli-produced television show that is set to air in 15 countries including Italy, Brazil, Spain, Finland and Mexico. Thrilled to have this talented cast on his network, NBC’s president of alternative programming issued a statement that read:

“We’re excited to watch our all-star cast rise to the challenges ahead in such a fresh, new way. Our viewers are going to fall in love with how these natural born entertainers push themselves outside of their comfort zones to put on a spectacular show every week.”

Via Instagram, Cheryl Burke revealed that earlier this week she started taping the first episode.

Miss Burke shared a picture of the cast members and captioned it:

“On set with @joejonas @aritchson and @jeffdye…ready to tape our first show! #ICanDoThat #nbc Excited to be working with them.Amazing first day with them.”

When Cheryl Burke said goodbye to Dancing with the Stars, she explained that it was a tough decision, but she needed a change in her life. The professional dancer stated at the time:

“I never thought I’d be able to walk away. But after a decade of something, it’s time for me to move on and try something different, to be challenged, to feel inspired.”

Will you be watching Cheryl Burke’s new show?
