Duets Recap: Season Premiere 5/24/12
Tonight is the season premiere of ABC’s new talent competition DUETS. Stand by as we live blog the premiere with all the up-to-the-minute details.
The new talent show promises there will be no cheesy chairs that turn around or no judges hiding behind a desk sipping on Pepsi. Duets has a unique twist which distinguishes it from other popular singing competitions. Each week, rather than just mentoring the contestants, the celebrity experts (which include country artist Jennifer Nettles, R ‘n’ B singer Robin Thicke and John Legend will perform alongside them to help secure them a Hollywood Records contract; a label that released music for the likes of Queen, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.
This may be all new for ABC because they have never had a successful singing competition having failed not once, but twice with “The One” and “Karoake Battle USA”. The real question here is, does Duets have enough to beat out “American Idol”, “The X Factor” and “The Voice.”
We will be live blogging the season premiere of Duets tonight from 8PM – 10PM. So don’t forget to come back to this spot for all the up-to-the-minutes details. Don’t forget to refresh often to get the most current info!
