Rapper MC Hammer has signed up to host a new U.K. TV show about the world’s most untalented acts.

The “U Can’t Touch This” hitmaker is currently filming the as-yet-untitled anti-talent series, which will feature clips of bad singers, dancers and actors.

A source tells Britain’s The Sun, “Yes, it’s Hammertime all over again… This show is right up his street. It has been filmed in L.A. but he is featuring contributions from people all over the world. He’ll be looking at bad acting, tone-deaf singers and people who really should steer clear of the dance floor.”

No word on when the show will premiere.
