"Duets" is about to put a whole new spin to the term "it takes two."This one-of-a-kind singing competition, which will debut at 8 p.m. on May 24 on ABC7, takes the singing superstars out from behind the judges' table and onto the stage! Hey, that 's where we love to see them most anyway, isn't it?

Superstars Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke individually will set out on a journey across America looking for undiscovered talent worthy to be their protégés. Ultimately, each superstar will choose two singers to be their duet partners. Together, the superstar and their protégé will take the stage each week and perform in front of a live studio audience.

In the end, only one duet will be at the top of the charts and the winning amateur will receive a recording contract with Hollywood Records. TV personality Quddus, best known from his days as the host of MTV's "Total Request Live," hosts this groundbreaking new singing series.
