With just five days to pull it off they are teamed with a celebrity vocal coach, a choreographer, and two music producers who are the professional help they need to stage a live "flash musical" that helps make their dreams come true. The coaches will enlist the help of the singer's friends, family, and co-workers to create a back-up chorus of singers and dancers to support him or her as they pour their heart out to their unsuspecting loved one. Can they all learn the dance in time? Will the singer be able to hit that high note at the exact right moment? What will the reaction be? It's the performance of a lifetime that could literally change everyone's life.
