The network announced that it has ordered six hour-long episodes of the new comedy variety series that will pit six celebrities against one another while they perform skills that they never knew they had.

“We’re excited to watch our all-star cast rise to the challenges ahead in such a fresh, new way,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of alternative programming. “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.”

Ciara will join pop stars Joe Jonas and Nicole Scherzinger, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire actor Alan Ritchson, comedian Jeff Dye and former Dancing With the Stars professional Cheryl Burke.

The “Body Party” singer took to Twitter to express her excitement about her new gig tweeting, “Sooooooooo Excited Being On @NBC’s New Show #ICanDoThat!! It’s Going To Be So Much Fun!! Can’t Waaaiit!!! Aaah!!”

I Can Do That! was developed by an Israeli production company and is currently in production in more than 15 countries, including Italy, Brazil, Spain, Finland and Mexico.
