Kelly Clarkson to Star in New Singing Competition Show ‘Duets
Clarkson will be joined by Robin Thicke and Lionel Richie, all three of whom made guest appearances on ‘The Voice’ on this week, as well as country star Jennifer Nettles. The four celebs will travel the country to find the perfect duet partners instead of making contestants go through a traditional audition process.
Each star will select two singers to be their duet partners, and will perform in front of a live studio audience with one of their proteges every week. Clarkson considers this a great chance to help “mold someone into whatever they want to do with their career.”
“The simple fact that I get to go out and find two people I believe in, sing with them every week and help them accomplish their dream is an amazing thing I can’t wait to be a part of,” the pop star said in a statement.
While having the opportunity to perform with some of the biggest names in music is enough of a gift, the winner of the competition will score a recording contract with Hollywood Records. Duets will premiere on ABC this summer.
