Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke, & More To Star In The New Reality TV Singing Competition, Duets
Forget about “love sweet love.” What the world needs now is another reality singing competition.
With American Idol and The X Factor flourishing on Fox and The Voice and America‘s Got Talent on NBC, it was only a matter of time before ABC entered the race with their own “rags to riches” series. Enter Duets, which is being billed as “a one-of-a-kind singing competition that takes the superstars out from the judge’s panel and onto the stage. Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles, Lionel Richie, and Robin Thicke will set out on a journey across America looking for undiscovered talent worthy to be their protégés. Ultimately, each superstar will choose two singers to be their duet partners. Together, the superstar and their protégé 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.”
Like Carson Daly on The Voice, Duets will be hosted by Quddus, a 1990s MTV VJ best known from his days as the host of Total Request Live. “I think it’s really cool that we get to go find the talent that we believe in and that we get to perform with them,” Clarkson says in the trailer below, “and at the same be able to help mold someone into whatever they want to do with their career.”
Take a sneak peak at Duets below. Will you be watching when the series debuts on May 24th?
