Kelly Clarkson to Judge New TV Talent Show

Kelly ClarksonKelly Clarkson has joined the judging panel of new TV talent show Duets.

The "Stronger" hitmaker - who found fame on the first series of American Idol - will join forces with music legend Lionel Richie, as well as Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke on the upcoming ABC series, which is set to debut this summer.

After scouring the US for undiscovered talent, Duets will see the celebrity mentors paired with aspiring vocalists for a live performance in front of a studio audience each week, with the eventual winner bagging a recording contract with Hollywood Records.

"The simple fact that I get to go out and find two people that I believe in, sing with them every week, and help them accomplish their dream is an amazing thing that I can't wait to be a part of," Kelly said in a statement.

The 29-year-old singer - who worked as a guest mentor on The Voice last year - has previously admitted she has been given a "hard time" because she found success on a TV talent show: "People have given me such a hard time. I came from a singing show, so I like singing shows, obviously. What was the big shocker there?"
