Fox has American Idol and The X Factor and NBC has The Voice. Now it’s ABC’s turn to get in on the reality singing competition action. Enter Duets, a series that will feature Idol winner Kelly Clarkson (a soon-to-be Voice vet, as well), Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland, Lionel Richie and Robin Thicke. The premise of the show, which airs this summer, is that each of these pros will travel the country in search of two hopeful singers to perform on stage with (hence the title). See the trailer below. “I think it’s really cool that we get to go find the talent that we believe in and that we get to perform with them — and at the same be able to help mold someone into whatever they want to do with their career,” Kelly says in ABC’s trailer for the upcoming series.”

Jennifer Nettles adds, “I think the element of performance with our partners on this show makes it different.”
