Kelly Clarkson to Anchor ABC Singing Show, Duets

by at . Comments

ABC is getting into the singing competition game.

The network announced last night that Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke, Lionel Richie and Jennifer Nettles will headline Duets this summer, a reality show that will take the four stars on the road in search of singing partners.

Each week, the celebrity and one of his/her proteges will take the stage and perform in front of a live studio audience.

Said Clarkson, who won season one of American Idol and served as a mentor this year on The Voice, in a press release:

"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 winner of the competition will earn a recording contract with Hollywood Records.

I agree Lexy. This is what is wrong with t.v. today. People have run out of ideas and just keep rehashing the same old stuff but in a different format. Very boring. Where did all of the good writers and/or producers go?
