Duets sounds like American Idol meets Dancing With The Stars. Duets is a four-week unscripted series executive-produced by Simon Cowell. Duets will pair established singing stars with celebrities outside the music industry to make beautiful music together by competing as duos for charity. The show will follow the professional singers as they instruct their partners, choose songs and perform duets in front of a panel of judges and a live studio audience.
After each episode, viewers will vote for their favorite duets. The winning pair will emerge from the competition in perfect harmony, while the losers definitely will have to change their tune. Duets is scheduled to air on Fox this Fall on Thursdays and Fridays prior to the Major League Baseball playoffs in September. The time is still to be determined.
