FOX hit series Game of Talents is a fun competition that features Wayne Brady. But the handsome host has to adapt and become a Bjorn for his lovely contestants Marie Claire and Julianne who are part of an ABBA tribute band.
On TV Shows Ace exclusive clip, Brady becomes Bjorn as the two get him to sing and dance to a special song.
Will Wayne Brady sing Mama Mia? Watch as the two women get Brady to get into the ABBA choreography.
The Game of Talents show
Brady jokes that he has met a lot of bands, but never has he met an ABBA tribute band.
The two women say that they need a boy to accompany their girl band, and Bjorn is the name of the ABBA singer they are trying to recreate in this impromptu ABBA performance.
Brady is game as always, and the women tell him to just follow their lead. An awkward dance sequence soon follows. He jokes that if his TV hosting gig doesn’t pan out, he can join them.
About the series
FOX describes the high-energy show as a spectacle of “awe, wonder and large-scale variety show with a clue-centered, high-intensity investigative game.
Described as a hybrid series, Game of Talents pits two teams of contestants against each other as they attempt to figure out the surprising — and sometimes bizarre — hidden talents of the mystery performers.
And with more than $200,000 up to win as a prize, it’s up to the contestants to identify unique skills, including fire dancing, spider wrangling, chainsaw juggling, and contortion.

I also get to give away someone else’s money, which I always enjoy doing!”
