Oooh, I am sooo excited to watch Celebrity Duets tonight at 8pm on Fox! Oh, wait a minute, that totally conflicts with Big Brother All Stars and I cannot miss that, so Celebrity Duets will have to be TiVo'd. If you haven't already heard about it, Celebrity Duets is Simon Cowell's new creation that teams up professional singers with washed up actors to sing a duet. Kind of like American Idol, each week the teams perform and America votes for their favorite duets. Oh this will be fabulous I just loooove seeing celebrities making fools of themselves! To keep things spicey and fresh, each week the celebrity will be paired up with a different musical artist. The contestants are as follows:
Celebrities: Chris Jericho (WWE World Champion), actress Lucy Lawless ("Xena: Warrior Princess," "Battlestar Galactica"), actor Cheech Marin ("Cars," "Nash Bridges"), 2004 Olympic Gold Medal-winning gymnast Carly Patterson, actor/director Alfonso Ribeiro ("The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "All of Us"), pop culture guru Jai Rodriguez ("Queer Eye"), actor/comedian Hal Sparks ("Queer as Folk") and actress Lea Thompson ("Back to the Future," "Caroline in the City").
Musicians: Cyndi Lauper, Belinda Carlisle, Taylor Dayne, Peter Frampton, Smokey Robinson, Dionne Warwick, Randy Travis, Brian McKnight, Macy Gray, Patti LaBelle, Kenny Loggins, Chaka Khan, Richard Marx, Michael Bolton, Clint Black, Aaron Neville, and more.
Hooray! Celebrity Duets! The show premieres tonight, but will then move into it's regular time slot of Thursday at 9pm on FOX.
