Default Duets Season 1 Disc.

Anyone watching this new show? DVR for me. But I'm curious about the format and potential.

I have read some not so good things about it.

I think it seemed forced because these pairings are new. Very rarely are true duet pairings REAL. There are always wannabes. Maybe they just need time for that chemistry? It definitely wasn't awesome and I think the singing competition world is oversaturated, but I'll probably keep watching. There is at least good talent and I'm curious to see where it goes.

The second performance Jennifer did, "Stay," was pretty awesome. They complemented well.

I agree that they complimented each other well, but I think she should have given him more of an opportunity to showcase his voice. He could have rocked that song without her.

Kristin, you don't like Jennifer. Are you biased?

Myst, that post was pitchy.

Lexi and I thought about watching it, but frankly there are just too many singing reality shows on for me. I'm done with them for the year.

Nah, I don't think so. I don't like her, but I don't mind that song. I would have liked to hear more of what he could sing on his own.
