Not to be left in the singing competition cold, ABC has announced that they've found four stars of their own to hold down a new show called "Duets," to air this summer.
Kelly Clarkson, Lionel Richie, Robin Thicke and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland have all signed on to serve as "judges," except this time around, the judges will sing with the competitors.
Like The CW's "The Star Next Door," also airing this summer, the four singing judges will traverse the nation in search of their talent. As Clarkson says in a promo clip, "They don't audition like a normal process, we get to find the talent that we really believe in, and we get to perform with them."
The goal is for each judge to find two performers they can sing with in a duet, and then each week, they'll perform in a front of a studio audience. Only one amateur duet partner will win, and that contestant will receive a contract with Hollywood Records.
Seeing Kelly Clarkson perform live every week on national television is enough to draw me in. Well, for her ten minutes of the show, anyway.
That is soooooo hot.....
I heard she likes it that way.
Hollywood really needs to come up with new ideas! They can't come up with an original idea for a show except maybe every 5 years and movies all come from books or are remakes/prequels/sequels of other movies that were fine just the way they are! I love Kelly Clarkson, but I do not need to see her with Lionel Richie, Robin Thicke, and that other chick (2 of the 4 are irrelevent to todays times anyway) on yet another singing show. I don't understand the sudden push for all of these new singing shows??? Weird
hmmmmm... same producers as the Voice?? I love Kelly, but yes the singing show genre is getting old.
Another talent show, really? REALLY?!!! We are raising a bunch of young people who just want to be rich and famous, who are loaded down with unearned confidence. Very sad.
I like Clarkson http://wp.me/p1se8R-1zR, Richie and Thicke but Nettles sings through her nose and tries to sound like Reba McEntire ... too much like a Tomcat late at night.
ALL of these judges (except the Sugarland girl) were all celeb singer help to the contestants this week on The Voice. Coincidence?!
Don't the suits in Hollywood have any creative ideas anymore? All they do now is pollute the airwaves with this dreck. No wonder most of my viewing is cable tv.
she visits the chewstroke homepage daily, alwyas leaving kind comments, we love kelly...
You so nasty!
Another d@mn singing show. Yeah we need that.
No I do not think so. We have nuff all ready.
I still can not say kelly clarkson without wanting to wax my chest hair
Ugh – sounds like a Country Hoedown or a Boogaloo Shindig – Borrrrrrrrrring !!
Jumping on the bandwagon after American Idol, XFactor, The Voice, Nashville Star, The SingOff, America's Got Talent, etc. Way to be current, ABC.
Yup, waaaaay too much of this.
Lionel Richie is a star come on the guy hasn't made music for 20 years
Umm, Jacob, just because he has been semi retired as a SINGER the last 20 yrs, doesn't mean that he's lost his talents. He's also a very good and well known song writer which I have no doubt he continues to do to this day. The man does know what he's talking about regarding songwriting and singing regardless how long he's not been actively singing, his active career spans much longer than 20 yrs.
I wonder who is fatter Sadie or Clarkson?
So does the blue link troll pay you in trident layers for your bad efforts to troll others or does he have other favors in mind?
