Celebrities Announced for "Duets"

aribeiro.jpgFox has managed to get celebrities to strap on ice skates, so how hard can it be to get them to belt out a few tunes? MovieWeb is reporting that the lineup for "Celebrity Duets" has been finalized.

The most shocking thing is that the show has managed to rope in 25 decent singers. You'd think each of them would have enough cash squirreled away to blow off the lure of Fox and reality TV. The artists include Clint Black, Michael Bolton, Belinda Carlisle, Taylor Dayne, Peter Frampton, Macy Gray, James Ingram, Wynonna Judd, Chaka Khan, Patti LaBelle, Kenny Loggins, Richard Marx, Brian McKnight, Aaron Neville, Smokey Robinson, Randy Travis, Dionne Warwick, and Lee Ann Womack.

I wonder how many will drop out, once they see who they are hooked up with. The "celebrities" that will be paired with any one of those singers include WWE's Chris Jericho, Warrior Princess Lucy Lawless, Cheech Marin, Gold Medal-winning gymnast Carly Patterson, former "Fresh Prince" sidekick Alfonso Ribeiro, "Queer Eye" guy Jai Rodriguez, comedian/"Queer as Folk" regular Hal Sparks and former 80s movie queen Lea Thompson.

I am not sure who will walk away with the title here, but doesn't Cheech get enough work that he can turn down this kind of stuff?

Maybe the lure of the grand prize is enough to warrant public embarrassment. The winner will get $100,000 for their favorite charity. At least someone out there will still think they are cool.

Wayne Brady will serve as the host, which is sort of funny considering he actually has a pretty decent voice.

"Celebrity Duets" will debut on Tuesday, August 29 at 8:00 p.m. (EST) on Fox. Afterwards, it will move to Thursdays at 9:00 p.m., with results shows airing on Fridays. -- Rachel Cericola
