Host Wayne Brady announces that the champion of Celebrity Duets will win $100,000 for their favorite charity: The Wayne Brady Give A Brother $100,000 Charity. Before the celebrities perform, Wayne Brady introduces the judges: Marie Osmond, Little Richard, and David Foster.
To kick of the show, Lucy Lawless sings “Say A Little Prayer” with Dionne Warwick. Marie Osmond says “I think you were a little bit timid.” Little Richard says “Lucy, you been in the Kool-Aid girl, but you don’t even know the flavor.” David Foster says “I actually kind of liked that.”
Alfonso Ribeiro sings “Too Much Too Little Too Late” with Deniece Williams. Marie Osmond says “One of the things I felt is that you have this move, and it’s not always appropriate with various people that you sing with.” Little Richard says “Don’t’ let your voice write a check that your rhythm can’t cash.” David Foster says “You did pretty good, great last note.”
Carly Patterson sings “Beautiful Soul” with Jesse McCartney. Marie Osmond says “If you want to continue, your voice is loosening up, but your body is still very stiff.” Little Richard says “I got your horse, I hope you got your buggy.” David Foster says “I said that last week, Marie is now the b*tch from hell, sweet little Marie Osmond is now ragging on everybody.”
Hal Sparks sings “Come Sail Away” with Dennis DeYoung. Marie Osmond says “You did a great job.” Little Richard says “It’s coming on through, and you’ve got it, and it takes it.” David Foster says “There is no doubt that you can sing, but I believe that you think that you are a rock star, and I don’t believe you are.”
Cheech Marin sings “Ain’t No Sunshine” with Aaron Neville. Marie Osmond says “You looked like you were struggling to find the beat.” Little Richard says “You’ve got to go back and get it, you’ve got to find it, then you’ve got to bring it.” David Foster says “You’re charming, but you don’t belong here anymore.”
Jai Rodriguez sings “Tell It To My Heart” with Taylor Dayne. Marie Osmond says “You relate to the camera which involves the people at home that are watching. Your choreography was awkward.” Little Richard says “You picked it up and pulled it out and put it in.” David Foster says “Tonight was a big miss.”
