Access Hollywood host Billy Bush dresses up like a cowboy—and a rapper. Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels also raps. The Today show anchors actually do some really nice harmonizing, if that's really them. And Joan Rivers swears. So what else is new?

All this silliness is part of a four-minute video that NBC has released of the “auditions” of folks trying to land the job that Carrie Underwood has to open Sunday Night Football.

Howie Mandel, actress Yvette Nicole Brown (of TV sitcom Community), Craig T. Nelson, Heidi Klum and actor Ken Jeong—flipping over keyboards—are also part of the video.

Sunday Night Football kicks off Sept. 8 at 7 p.m. ET as the Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants.
