ABC's second episode of Duets, its new singing competition, kicked things off with a duet between judges/mentors Robin Thicke and Kelly Clarkson (can someone please bottle that up and sell it?). Then it was on to the contestant duets, starting with Bridget Carrington and John Legend, who performed the Aretha Franklin/George Michael hit "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)," which lifted up Carrington's sixth-place finish from last week.
Duets, ABC's entry into the reality singing competition fray, premiered Thursday night, with judges Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke, John Legend and Jennifer Nettles. The show is similar to NBC's The Voice, in that the judges also serve as mentors who groom the contestants they pick, but there's a twist: each pop star performs a duet with his or her chosen amateur(s).
Jennifer Nettles, 37, the lead singer of the country band, Sugarland, had a particularly festive Thanksgiving holiday. On Saturday, she married her boyfriend of two years, Justin Miller, in a quiet ceremony near the Tennessee Smoky Mountains.
