Six star entertainers rival each other competing and showcasing their talents with some chosen classic and unique acts that need skills they will learn to implement practicing with the original acts. After a week of training, they re-perform their acts live, with the public voting on the best re-enacted act of the week. The audience's vote for the best act of the week corresponds to the amount of points the celebrity gains for that week with; 1st earning 3 points, 2nd earning 2 points, and 3rd earning 1 point. At the end of 6 weeks, the celebrity with the most points earns a Trophy and the title of "The Greatest Entertainer". On July 2, 2015, NBC renewed the series for a second season.[1]

After the renewal, the show has so far not had a second season, and did not return for the summer 2016 or 2017 seasons. NBC has removed it from the list of the current shows, indicating that it may have been ultimately cancelled after a single season.[2]

The American version of "I Can Do That" is based on the original format of the same name, launched by Israeli company Armoza Formats. The format has now been sold to over 20 other countries.

The show's theme song is "Can You Do This" by Aloe Blacc.
