Fox's new trainwreck, "Celebrity Duets"

Fox's new trainwreck, "Celebrity Duets," is a mess of a ripoff of "American Idol," "Dancing With the Stars" and "Skating With Celebrities." Do we really need to see Lucy Lawless, aka Xena Warrior Princess, crooning with a creepy-looking Smokey Robinson?! No! Alfonzo Ribeiro says we'll see the famous "Carlton" dance, a la "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," if he makes it into the final two. I'm picking Jai Rodriguez of "Queer Eye" to win it all -- I can't decide who's the bigger diva on stage when he performs with Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child. WWE Superstar, Chris Jericho, is the first one out. Kind of surprising, since he has his own band, Fozzy, but he tanks on "Duets." If you dare to watch, "Duets" airs this week on Thursday and Friday at 9 p.m. on Fox.

Hat Tip to Kara A. Medalis, The Stamford Advocate

From Reuters...

The judges -- Marie Osmond, Little Richard and record producer David Foster -- are tactful almost to the point of being tone-deaf. At times, Little Richard's remarks often made no sense at all, a point duly noted by Foster until he finally gave up on it. Host Wayne Brady has a clever comic sensibility and a quick wit, none of which is apparent in this setting.
