'Duets' Premiere: Robin Thicke Says 'I'm Just Going To Show Up And Sing'

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/24/duets-premiere-robin-thicke_n_1543483.html

With so many reality singing competitions on TV, ABC is hoping to raise the bar with its new series "Duets", a show that partners an amateur hopeful with a superstar singer on the live stage. But don't expect mentors Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Robin Thicke and Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles to spin around in big red chairs. These celebrities are hitting the road to find the next voice.

The biggest draw for Thicke, however, who has only had one song succeed on the pop charts (2006's "Lost Without U"), is being introduced him to a whole new audience.

HuffPost TV chatted with the new reality singing judge about his new gig on "Duets", what her learned from his dad ("Mr. Smooth") and what "morning coffee on the veranda" (a reference he made as a mentor on "The Voice") really sounds like.

What made you want to join ABC's "Duets"?
My music is my life, and my art is my life. I just wanted an opportunity for more people to hear my music. I figured that if I do this show, there will be a bunch of people who have never heard of me before listening to my music. I don't play on pop radio a lot, so it will be nice to just get my music out there. That's my goal.

It's an interesting concept for a show because you're going to be singing every week with your contestants.
That's what I wanted -- the opportunity to perform and to sing and to not just be a judge.

So you wouldn't be happy just sitting in a big red chair?
No, absolutely not. I couldn't do that.

So am I right that the judges did the voting? That seems like a bad way to do it, imo. A judge whose person starts out number 1 isn't ever going to vote another judge's contestant as number 1. Likewise, if a second judge's person is number 2 behind the first judge's number 1 in that same voting, then they won't vote someone above theirs either. I didn't blame Kelly for being mad that both of her people were at the bottom.

GOOD POINT! I agree with you there. I thought both of Kelly's people were better than John Legends people.

So, did you all like this? I watched most of it. My husband kept switching channels..lol.
I think I like it except for the judging system.
I also think that Jennifer seems to do the best in the duet format. I'm thinking it is because she works in a group, rather than strictly as a solo artist. She is also a damn fine singer.

I watched it this morning ... I liked it. I think all four judges are fine, fine singers but Jennifer is my favourite. I think I love that they all perform without "autotune" anywhere in sight. Jennifer and Kelly are powerhouses, for sure.

i watched it and liked it...i said to my husband this one is "quiet" compared to say like AI and the Voice...and i loved how they just flew through who their duet partners were, i can't stand audition parts of these type of shows...Jennifer is amazing and i had no idea who she was before this show, loved her

now excuse me if i get a little crude here, but would you not die if you were singing with Robin Thicke, everything about him oozes sex, his songs are such panty droppers that if I was up there, my lord would i not die...i couldn't do it, i would have to jump him
