ABC Announces New Music Competition Series, DUETS

March 8, 2012 by  

Were you sitting there thinking, “Man, I could really use another singing competition in my life?” Of course you weren’t! Well, ABC has just announced they’ve picked up a new show called DUETS.

However, in all fairness, this new reality show is a bit different than the other ones on TV right now. Contestants will actually get the chance to sing with music stars — Kelly Clarkson (who has been on every singing show at this point, right?), Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, Lionel Richie, and Robin Thicke — in their quest to win.

Take a look at the press release for the complete details…


Singers From Across The Country Will Have A Once in a Lifetime Opportunity To Perform With These Iconic Musicians in a Heated Weekly Competition

ABC announced today a brand new music competition series, “Duets,” starring four of the music industry’s biggest Superstars: Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles, Lionel Richie, and Robin Thicke. The new series will debut this summer on ABC television network.

“Duets” is a one of a kind singing competition that takes the Superstars out from the judge’s panel and onto the stage. Clarkson, Nettles, Richie, and Thicke will individually 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.

Amateur singers interested in auditioning for the Superstars as they travel the country looking for talent can apply online at:”

    I would love to be on the show duets i love singing it’s my world and i don’t see myself doing anything else in my life and to be able to audition would mean the world to me i’ve been singing since i was four and fell in love with it but have never done anything about it because i never felt i was good enough and i have stage fright but it’s time for me to come out of my shell and show the world what i can do.
