Kelly Clarkson‘s new talent competition Duets premieres tonight on ABC. It is a talent show with a new concept and it expects to knock our socks off. I cannot wait to see it!
The new talent show promises there will be no cheesy chairs that turn around or no judges hiding behind a desk sipping on Pepsi. Duets has a unique twist which distinguishes it from other popular singing competitions. Each week, rather than just mentoring the contestants, the celebrity experts (which include country artist Jennifer Nettles, R ‘n’ B singer Robin Thicke and John Legend will perform alongside them to help secure them a Hollywood Records contract; a label that released music for the likes of Queen, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.
This may be all new for ABC because they have never had a successful singing competition having failed not once, but twice with “The One” and “Karoake Battle USA”. The real question here is, does Duets have enough to beat out “American Idol”, “The X Factor” and “The Voice.”
In “Duets”, the four judges will search America for new and undiscovered talent worthy to be their proteges. Each Superstar will pick two hopefuls to be their duet partners. Together, they will take the stage every week to perform for a live audience.
Only one duet will be the ultimate winner at the top of the charts and the protege will win a recording contract with Hollywood Records.
We will be live blogging the season premiere of Duets tonight from 8PM – 10PM. So don’t forget to come back to this spot for all the up-to-the-minutes details.
