Just when you thought you had had enough singing competition shows on your television,ABC announces a new series called, Duets. The competition is said to feature four successful musicians scouring the country for talent to mentor. Not only will the professional musicians mentor the contestants, they will also sing duets with them. Robin Thicke and Lionel Richie are the first two celebrity musicians to sign on with former American Idol winner Kelly Clarksonand Sugarland frontwoman Jennifer Kettlesrounding out the celebrity panel.
Thicke commented about the series, saying,
“I’m truly excited to be a part of ‘Duets.’ The format is unlike anything that’s out there right now, and the opportunity to work with such talent, both the other artists and contestants, is definitely going to make for an exciting competition.”
“Ultimately, each Superstar judge will choose two singers to be his/her duet partners. Together the Superstars and their protégés will take the stage each week and perform in front of a live studio audience. In the end, only one duet will be at the top of the charts, and the winning amateur will receive a recording contract with Hollywood Records,”
With all of the singing competition shows on the air, how well do you think this one will do?
