Duets


Duets (Courtesy Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


Duets is a singing competition reality television show that premiered on May 24, 2012 on ABC. The show stars Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Robin Thicke, and Jennifer Nettles as mentors who search for singers to duet with them as they perform in front of a live studio audience. Quddus serves as the host. The show is a production of Keep Calm and Carry On Productions. Robert Deaton and Charles Wachter are the executive producers.

On April 30, 2012, it was confirmed that John Legend had replaced Lionel Richie as a mentor on the show; Richie left the show citing "personal scheduling conflicts."

Premise

Clarkson, Thicke, Legend, and Nettles travel across America to find two singers each who serve as their duet partners for the show. Each week, the mentor and one of their two duet partners perform live in front of a studio audience. The contestants then receive feedback from the other stars"?and graded anonymously"?on their performances. At the end of the night the eight contestants are ranked on a chart. The two contestants at the bottom of the chart face-off. The loser is eliminated. After six weeks, the show goes live and the audience begins to vote on the outcome of each episode.

At the end of the competition, the winning singer wins a recording contract with Hollywood Records.

"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," stated Clarkson in a press release statement from ABC.
