BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker has been named Most Valuable Performer.

Several NFL players displayed their skills off the field, competing in a unique new talent show called “MVP: Most Valuable Performer.”

More than 30 football players auditioned, but only six finalists performed live on CBS. And Maryland was well represented with three Baltimore Ravens!

Ravens Defensive Tackle Brandon Williams started singing in the church choir as a child.

“I’ve had no training, no coaching, no nothing,” Williams said. “I just sing because I love it.”

Tucker studied music in college, but has only performed opera in public a few times.

“I can kick a ball, piece of cake,” Tucker said. “But getting out here and singing in front of an auditorium of people with many more watching on tv, that is nerve wracking to me.”

Ravens Running Back Alex Collins started Irish Dancing two years ago and says it helps him on the football field.

“The aspect of being on your toes at all times, it just definitely gives you that lower body strength, which is what’s important for a running back,” Collins said. “So I feel like it’s definitely helped me with my quickness and explosion.”

Their competition: Jonathan Stewart from the Carolina Panthers played the piano, Kevin Zeitler with the Cleveland Browns did dog tricks, and Domata Peko with the Denver Broncos played guitar and song.
