Duets debuted on ABC last night and one thing is for certain: Chris Brown fans will NOT be tuning in.

Not when the quartet of judges includes John Legend, whose girlfriend was recently the target of ridiculous death threats from Team Breezy members.

The panel also includes Robin Thicke, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles, all of whom won't merely judge aspiring singers, but actually perform with them on stage as well.

First, however, this impressive foursome opened the premiere on its own, leading off last night's episode with a rendition of "Let Me Entertain You." Watch it here:

Will you tune in for Duets?


Robin Thicke also performed on Good Morning America Friday a.m. in all his sexy glory. Follow the jump to feast your eyes that effort:

New American Idol champion Phillip Phillips should take note. He can only hope and pray to have half the career that has blessed original winner Kelly Clarkson.

The talented crooner appeared this week on the Dancing with the Stars finale and sang a medley of "Dark Side" and "Stronger," and now she's unveiled the official music video for the first track.

“Don’t run away, don’t run away, just tell me that you will stay, promise me you will stay,” Clarkson sings below. See for yourself now:

Clarkson - along with John Legend, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke - will anchor a new singing competition on ABC titled Duets. It premieres tonight.

Kelly Clarkson delivered the ever-rare Britney Spears live cover last night in concert, belting out a rendition of the pop queen's "Till the World Ends."

The inaugural American Idol winner has been performing covers of other artists, a la Taylor Swift, during her Stronger tour, and Brit Brit was on tap.

"I thought this would be a fun one you'll enjoy," she told an L.A. crowd before singing. "I know you know this song ... I expect everybody on these 'Os!'"

Kelly did an awesome job, even if she has mixed feelings about the song.

According to TooFab, she said, "I love that song. I always get this bad taste in my mouth though ... when I hear Britney Spears because usually she's my cardio music and I frickin hate cardio! I frickin' hate the gym ... the gym can suck it!"

Indeed. Way to stick it to the treadmill!

We are crazy for Kelly Clarkson.

On Saturday night - the evening before this American Idol champion belted out the national anthem and Madonna performed at halftime of Super Bowl XVLI - Clarkson took to the stage in Louisiana and also took a few fan requests.

Among them? "Crazy for You" by the Material Girl herself, a track that Kelly adorably told the crowd reminded her of a date at the skating track with some dude named Michael Webb. Note to Michael Webb: we hope you regret letting this one go.

Watch and listen below as Kelly does Madonna very proud:

While Christina Aguilera had the floor during Etta James' funeral on Saturday, and used it to belt out a version of "At Last," former American Idol champion Kelly Clarkson paid tribute to the late, great artist in her own way last week, as well.

"This isn’t ‘At Last’ because everyone really covers that and so I wanted to do my favorite, actually," Kelly told a crown in New York City. "My favorite song is ‘I’d Rather Go Blind.’ So, this is for Etta!”

On Saturday night, meanwhile, during a performance in Pennsylvania, Clarkson also announced her next single, "I Forgive You." It will hit the radio any day now.

We can't wait!

Kelly Clarkson stepped into some serious controversy last week when she endorsed Ron Paul for President of the United States.

But the singer made up for that snafu in New Orleans last night, playing a long, free set as part of the the 2012 Allstate Fan Fest, an event that preceded this evening's Allstate Sugar Bowl between two undeserving BCS teams, Michigan and Virginia Tech.

Among other hits, the first-ever American Idol belted out such singles as “Since U Been Gone,” “Stronger,” “Mr. Know It All” and “Breakaway." Listen to a version of "You Love Me" below:

“Thanks New Orleans! That was fun :)” Clarkson Tweeted after the concert.
