Kelly Clarkson's team is struggling on 'Duets.' Both of her teammates -- Jason Farol and Jordan Meredith -- often land in the bottom of the judge's voting. On tonight's episode (June 7), which will feature the very first elimination of the brand new series, Clarkson and Farol teamed up with Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah.'
On tonight's episode of Duets, Robin Thicke's contestant Alexis Foster placed at third last week, but this week she needed to embrace the music more. Her goal was to have more stage charisma and to just have fun! Thicke was worried as well and suggested that she move around on stage more to become truly involved in the performance.
In the beginning of the second hour of tonight’s episode of ‘Duets’ John Legend had to replace his former contestant Johnny Gray due to unknown circumstances. Legend then held rapid-fire auditions for hundreds of people and after a tough decision he narrowed it down to two people and gave them a song to learn to perform the next day. Hawaiian beauty Meleana Brown ended up being the lucky winner and performed ‘Endless Love’ tonight with Legend.
For the superstars on ‘Duets,’ the challenge is not only finding someone with some singing chops, but also finding that person whose vocal and personal chemistry blends easily with theirs. Robin Thicke must have had his ears on during his auditions because he found an incomparable voice in Alexis Foster.
Kelly Clarkson is a busy gal. While she recently revealed that she loves the fact that her new management lets her have a life, it doesn't mean she's not working her butt off -- the 'American Idol' alum has a new song about to hit radio, a new TV show and a new romance to balance. She dished to Billboard on what sets 'Duets' apart from other musical competition shows and why she loves her new single, 'Dark Side.'
