While ABC has not made a decision if the reality singing competition DUETS will return for a second season (the ratings haven’t so great), ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee says he has been pleased creatively with the show and no decision as been made about a second season next summer. “We haven’t made a decision about it, but the cast was fantastic and we loved the twist of Jennifer Nettles or Kelly Clarkson getting up and singing and not just being judges,” says Lee. “Reality is hard because it’s much more difficult now to find the shock of the […]Read On »

TV Review: DUETS – Season 1 – “Songs That Inspire”

Cast: Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles, John Legend, Robin Thicke, Quddus Network: ABC, Thursday nights Original Telecast: June 7, 2012 DUETS continues its downward spiral with another week of frustrating song choices. Song choice is still a big issue with these shows and many contestants suffered this week because of this. The theme this week is “Songs That Inspire.” Did I see this theme eight times last season on AMERICAN IDOL? Can’t anyone come up with anything new?

With Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles (of Sugarland), John Legend and Robin Thicke – there are some great pros that are nurturing the talent. The problem still remains is the voting system. The judges give points for performance and presentation which places people […]Read On »

Featuring: Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles, John Legend, Robin Thicke Network: ABC, Thursday nights Original Telecast: May 25, 2012 So close on the heels of the AMERICAN IDOL and THE VOICE finales, ABC gets into the musical competition game with DUETS. At two hours, the series premiere proves to be a bit unwieldy like many competition shows, but the premise is at least somewhat different – four superstars Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland, Robin Thicke and John Legend pick two contestants apiece to be their duet partners. The title allows them to go, “let’s duet” (get the pun) and then […]Read On »
