Jennifer Nettles and Kelly Clarkson ‘Duets’ Partners Revealed
‘Duets,’ the new reality singing competition series starring Sugarland vocalist Jennifer Nettles and semi-country singer Kelly Clarkson, debuts this coming Thursday (May 24) in a two-hour premiere. The premise of the show is that established vocalists will partner with neophytes for –you guessed it- a duet! Rather than be judges or mentors, the celebs are performing alongside the hopefuls. Ahead of the big bow at 8 PM ET, the singing partners of each mentor have been revealed by ABC.
Nettles will perform with John Glosson, a 32-year-old from Douglas, Georgia. She’s a Georgian, so based on that fact alone, this is likely a smart pairing. She will also sing with J Rome, 25, from Laurel, Maryland.
Clarkson has been teamed up with Jason Farol, 23, from Torrance, Calif., and with Jordan Meredith, a 21-year-old from Wisconsin. You can peruse the ABC site to get a sneak peek of and a feel for the partners.
Together, the superstars and their partners take the stage each week and perform in front of a live studio audience. In the end, only one duet will be chosen as the "winner." Up for grabs is a contract with Hollywood Records. Not too shabby, huh?
Be sure and tune in this Thursday to hear the sweet sounds that Nettles and Clarkson make with their partners.
