Just two hours into the 'Duets' series, and trends are forming. For Kelly Clarkson, that means choosing duet partners that are tall on talent, but a little short on confidence. Much like Jason Farol earlier, Jordan Meredith was trembling when she first joined the pop superstar. Her performance of 'Stronger' was anything but lacking in swagger, however.
It's difficult to believe John Legend hasn't known his second 'Duets' partner longer than just a few weeks. The singer-songwriter chose Bridget Carrington to sing his song 'Tonight (Best You Ever Had)' with him during Thursday night's debut episode of the ABC reality show. The result left at least two judges wanting to run home to the men in their lives.
John Legend was out to find the purest voice when choosing a partner for his team on ABC's new reality show 'Duets.' After sifting through dozens of talented but not-quite-right singers, the singer-songwriter chose an unlikely partner to sing his hit 'Ordinary People.' Johnny Gray towered over Legend at the piano while singing the love song.
The first two contestants on Monday night's episode of 'The Voice' gave performances that rate amongst the best seen thus far on season two of the NBC series. Cee Lo Green encored with the best coach performance of the year. His team's version of Martha and the Vandellas 'Dancing in the Street' was wild without being weird.
The final performer on 'The Voice' always has the advantage of not having to worry about clean up, which worked out well for rocker Juliet Simms on Monday night. After her emotional performance of 'Cryin'' by Aerosmith, it would have been tough to watch another singer (Pip?) wade through the pile of snow white feathers that fell from the ceiling.
Former Mickey Mouse Club Mouseketeer Tony Lucca squeaked through two weeks ago after competing coach and former co-star Christina Aguilera called him one-dimensional. This week he embraced his past, and chose a song from another of his teenaged co-stars. Singing Britney Spears' '... Baby One More Time,' Lucca gave what's destined to be the night's most talked-about performance.
Lights, leather, sexy women playing electric guitars on stilts ... Jamar Rogers' version of 'Are You Gonna Go My Way' by Lenny Kravitz had just about everything a rock star could pack into one two-minute performance on network television. The Bronx born and raised singer got the night's loudest and longest standing ovation.
