Jennifer Nettles Performs ‘Let Me Entertain You’ With ‘Duets’ Coaches in Season Premiere Episode
Are you as excited about tonight’s ‘Duets‘ premiere as we are? If you absolutely can’t wait another minute for a sneak peak of the new reality competition series, you’re in luck! Jennifer Nettles, along with celebrity judges Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke and John Legend, have released an early clip of the opening number for tonight’s premiere (watch video below).
Nettles and company tackle a flashy, choreographed performance of ‘Let Me Entertain You,’ a tune first made popular by British rocker Robbie Williams in 1998. Nettles takes the stage third, joining Clarkson and Thicke for the song’s second verse. Legend later meets the group to end the performance in a spectacular fashion.
Using the phrase “two voices are better than one,” ‘Duets’ will chronicle the mentors as they travel the country to find the best voices in America. Each celebrity will choose two duet partners and will take the stage with one of their two protoges each week in front of a studio audience. The last hopeful standing will win a recording contract with Hollywood Records.
“Jennifer Nettles,” Clarkson tells the New York Daily News of the Sugarland singer, who she thinks is her biggest competition. “She may be a little less well-known, but that’s because people don’t realize how great she is.”
